This KINDY is the BEST!!!
I looked at 8 pre-schools before choosing this one - picky Parent!
The teachers are wonderful. For example - at times my kids have been hard to leave - they always comfort them. If it's been particularly bad - they'll give me a phone call to let me know that they are now settled and happily playing (usually ten minutes after I've left). For me this is soooo nice - as no one likes leaving an upset child.
They have wonderful events during the term where parents are welcomed to come along. If you drop your kids off - but decide to stay a while to play - they'll often offer you a cup of coffee (but you're welcome to go get one anyway).
It's got kids from all walks of life and lots of cultures - which we love for our kids.
There's good old fashioned fun - like a rope swing, nails, hammers and saws (I was terrified at the start! but my boys have loved creating items from the wood work table).
What else - they got EXCELLENT RESULTS with ERO.
We are just delighted to have come across this Kindy!
