“Both my kids have been at Community Kids, cannot recommend them enough. The staff are always friendly and approachable. Been with the centre for 7 years!”

– Amanda 


“Cannot express how pleased we have been with the beautiful staff at this centre, everyone from the kitchen, front office to the educators have been a pleasure to deal with. My son absolutely adores his time there and has learnt so much. Thanks for all your hard work.” 

– Sarah 


“Fantastic childcare centre! My girls absolutely love it there. It really is a great stepping stone for their early education. My eldest is doing their kinder program and I would not go anywhere else for kinder. The staff are all so friendly and caring and take so much time to communicate the educational intentions every term which I think is a fantastic initiative. It shows that they are not just “babysitting” your children but developing an individual program that suits every child. Absolutely fabulous staff:))”

– Kristy
