“As a first time Mum returning to work, I was extremely worried about finding a childcare centre that is safe and welcoming, with educators that would care for and nurture my baby like I had for his first 10 months. The process of elimination began with the first phone call to the centre. Not only was the Director, Lauren, pleasant and inviting, she offered for me to drop in at any time to meet her and the educators, and have a look at the facility. On my initial visit, all of the staff were friendly and answered all of my questions. The educators knew each child by name and it was clear to me from all the happy little faces that this caring, family like environment was the place for my son. When I dropped him off the first day, Lauren was there assuring me that my baby would be OK and that I could call her anytime to see how he was doing. Anytime I called, she would check in on him and let me know how he was, and what he was doing – that extra bit of information gave it that special touch.
My son is now 2.5yrs old, has moved into the “big boys room” (toddlers) and he is learning so much. The educators use the ‘Kinderloop App’ and I can see what activities he has been involved in throughout the day. It is clear that children at the centre are treated as individuals, with their own strengths and needs. I am so grateful for the loving care, guidance, and education my son receives. He loves going to daycare!”
