We'd recommend this special place!! No doubt about it! Such friendly staff that accommodate most of our requests and they all show a genuine interest in our kids' development - even those that have left or are due to start soon.
Our 3rd child was born last year with renal failure and these guys have been crazy flexible and supportive. They're always keen for updates and have sent meals home to help with the witching chaos when Mum & Dad look like wrecks.
We moved the mob from another childcare and have been presently surprised by the improvements this place has had on our kids. Being brand spanking new, the centre is top notch and everything flows well - probably why the teachers seem so chirpy all the time.
Thanks guys!

All about the money

This place is all about the money and that’s it. They pulled me to task about dropping my son 10 mins early outside his designated times, even though I picked him up 1.5hrs early every day and wanted me to pay for a full day to make up for 10 minutes in the morning.
I always had to ask for updates about his progress even though he was new, nothing was offered. We lasted a month before pulling out. Told the teachers we were starting to toilet train and NOTHING was done to assist with this.
