By interacting with a wide variety of people in the community the children are developing their ability to interact in relation to others with care, empathy and respect.

We also focus on sustainable futures for our children and teaching them about caring for and respecting the environment. This is evident throughout the experiences we create and our environments that we offer.

Testimonials

Reviews and Testimonials

See what some of our parents say about our centre:

“I just wanted to send a quick email to say thank you to all the staff at Community Kids High Wycombe for their support and assistance over the last year. Not only have all the staff been very supportive of my son, Jack’s, transition into daycare, I have had immeasurable support from the staff on a person level as well. I am currently completing my Bachelor of Education, all the staff have been very approachable and always happy to have a chat with me regarding policies and procedures and how they relate to the curriculum, helping me see how my studies can be implemented in a childcare setting. I enjoy my discussions with staff on lesson ideas, their personal pedagogy and how to incorporate inclusive learning for all children. A special thank you to Dawn and Sam who are always happy to discuss and provide valuable insights on education, and Hannah, who aside from always being incredibly supportive, has also allowed me access to some of her personal resources.

It is obvious from my many discussions with staff that they highly value the welfare and education of all children who attend Community Kids High Wycombe, but also see the value of supporting the local community, going above and beyond on a personal level with the families that attend the centre.

I am looking forward to remaining part of the Community Kids family in 2016 and beyond, and thank all the staff for giving me their time, providing valuable insights that have helped with many aspects of my studies.”

“Josh absolutely loves coming… and I am incredibly grateful for the environment you create for him. There are opportunities for fun learning and self directed play with a beautiful integration of the two. It is very obvious that you care for the children in your care very much and this is both a massive relief to me and something I am very appreciative of – thank you.”

– Clare

 

My kids have been attending… for 3 years now starting in the baby’s room.  I have always found the carers to be extremely friendly and helpful. Whenever I have needed guidance or assistance they have always been very welling to help and assist me.  The food is nutritious and parent suggestions on meals or anything else are always welcome.  But the most important thing for me is that the kids just love coming here.”

My daughter has been attending Community Kids High Wycombe for roughly 4 months now. The staff are AMAZING! The communication between staff and parents is outstanding and the amount of things my little girl has learnt makes me love the staff and centre even more. I would highly recommend this child care centre to anyone. I am so glad I made the switch from the old centre I had her in because I can see a massive difference”
