I have noticed that both my children have adjusted and settled well into their new environment which we immensely thankful for especially as you helped made their transitioning easy and welcomed us all in with your warm smiles and lovely greetings each time we arrived. I am pleased with how the children feel cared for and included that the school is secured and that there is good clear communication between the school and parents. I am especially pleased with the amount of confidence they have and that they are content with themselves. The teachers here are very lovely, including the reception team. They are very organized and always keep me informed about my concerns, daily news, learning progression and even make time o have a chat with me about the funny things my children do smile. Thank you for welcoming us into your family.

Before our grandson enrolled in this school, he was very shy, aloof and tend to play on his own using his favourite toy car. When we dropped him off in school, he cried a lot. He was even afraid to go to the washroom. However, after several days, he is doing well especially in socialization among his classmate and drawn closer to his teachers. He knows know how to greet them: “Good morning classmates, good morning teacher Nita, teacher Toni” – that ‘s as far as he can remember. He learned also to share his favourite toy car. A “pay loader” to his classmates. He is no longer afraid to go to the washroom, in fact he became “playful” with water and he tried also o eat on his own. Indeed, his enrolment in this school has greatly improved his personality, improved his interaction with other children. We are happy to note that Little Feet Childcare Centre has provided good learning environment, clean, safe and comfortable place to all kids. We would like to express our thanks and appreciate to the teachers and staff for giving extra patience and caring attention to our children. Now no more crying episodes when we dropped him off to school. Congratulations to the management for this noble intention to provide excellent preschool education to our children and grandchildren. God bless you richly!
Awesome place to send kids. Well looked organised and managed. Great team.

my daughter attends this childcare. I've had a hard time settling her into a kindy where she can relax and enjoy the company of other children but this childcare has done exactly everything to make my daughter comfortable. I used to have a hard time leaving her there without her crying, now I don't even get a wave she loves it here. I also love the fact she is always telling me about her day :). Definitely a childcare to recommend
