Absolutely fantastic centre!

My son (11months) has attended grow since he was 8 months old and he absolutely loves it! It has such a big outdoor area with real grass, with a massive sandpit and a little river that I find he has been in most sunny days.
He has made friends already and is absolutely thriving within Grows environment.
The teachers are warm and nurturing towards my son and he finds true comfort in being there.
As being an ece myself, I can see the quality within this centre. There are so many opportunities for my son to grow into a well rounded young man, we are very happy with our decision to enroll our son at Grow. Highly recommended!
