Reviews and Testimonials
See what some of our parents say about our centre:
“My little man loves going to Kindy here. We have always been made to feel welcome. I like that when I have to put my little one in care – that the staff really do CARE! 🙂 it’s a great centre, great staff and fantastic learning environment.”
“The first time I attended CK2 I knew it was the place for us. The staff are all so lovely and were more than happy to help get my girls settled. Now I have both my daughters there and they always look forward to heading off to ‘school’.”
“My typically clingy and uptight 2 year old son has blossomed since attending this daycare two mornings a week. He is a great deal more independent and confident, and therefore happier. The curriculum is realistic and also encourages children to test themselves in a safe and enjoyable environment. The staff are incredibly professional, I view them all like they are the ‘oracles’ of children! It’s clear that each carer has been selected with great consideration by the employer; they have a unique ability to understand each child’s wants and needs. I could not be happier with Deception Bay Children’s Centre, and I thank them all wholeheartedly for their dedication and ongoing hard work. Well done.”
