Testimonials

Reviews and Testimonials

See what some of our parents say about our centre:

“Both my daughter Maddie and my son Nicky always enjoy their stay at the centre. The teachers are really kind and friendly. My son has been in love with them for years now. I trust them 100% with my children. I know that they are safe, eat healthy (but nice) and will have a fine day. There is even room for special attention for the different ethnic backgrounds of the kids. They learn a lot! i remember Maddie coming home one day telling me all about space and the planets and she will always remember that! They also get a good preparation for reception. And did I mention the friendly staff? :). Maddie was even welcome when she was already in reception. Every school holiday she would spend the days I worked together with her brother in daycare, until she was six. There is a great outside space where they can play and ride their bikes. There is a vegetable patch in which the kids also work. And lets not forget Monty the chicken. Great centre.”
