Staff, Service and Facilities are amazing! I have been to many childcare centres and this is by far the best centre I have sent my child. She is extremely happy and the staff are accommodating and care for each child like their own. I am so happy I finally found the perfect centre for my family.....

I can not believe that people would give anything less than 5 stars to this centre, my son has been going there since he was 10 months old he is now 2 all staff, educators, reception and manager have been wonderful with us and also our son, they have always followed our direction with regards to our sons medical history, his behaviours, routines and daily care, each time i have spoken to them about small concerns they have all been so understanding and have changed things to accommodate our needs and also the needs of our son, i would never...

Amazing facility with educators who can certainly put your mind at ease. As a FTM sending my fully breastfed baby to childcare at 11 months was scary. He had never napped without me or taken a bottle. But the educators in the room listened to me, didn’t force my son to do anything he wasn’t ready to and did a fantastic job at keeping me aware of how he was adjusting. We’ve been there a year and a half now and not only do I know my son is cared for, fed well, and learning heaps; I’ve had the privilege... Read More »

Amazing child care facility! Not sure why people had given 1 star or had given a bad review! The educators are trained and very efficient everytime my child is injured or even had a little bump on his head, they were very quick to respond. My son has developed into a happy, friendly, caring boy and has been there since 10 months old. Have had the greatest experience with this child care!

Flower blooming science experiment
ITS NEVER TOO EARLY TO SCIENCE!!!!

Young children are natural scientists, filled with curiosity to discover and understand the world around them.

So today in Kindergarten room we decided to do a little flower blooming science experiment. We asked all the children to colour on the paper and design a flower. Once they finished colouring the flowers we cut them into flower shapes and folded the flower petals into the centre. We poured some water in the tray and ask all the children to put their flowers one by one.

Yes! these little paper flowers will actually bloom ...

S C I E N C E W E E K !

Children are naturally inquisitive, full of questions about the world around them and they drive into our child-centered programs to investigate how things work. This week we celebrate National Science Week across the service, our passionate educators always finding small opportunities to advantage of the children's innate curiosity and start channeling their enthusiasm for science and discovery, we also look out for spontaneous, daily opportunities for scientific discovery, guided by you but ultimately led by the children. We encourage them to always experiment and ask questions : ) Happy Science WEEK

Well done to all of my team.

To celebrate Science Week we performed another experiment involving balloons and hair... yes, hair!

We described static electricity as this invisible energy to children as something that can make the strands of their hair stand. So we blew up some balloons and demonstrated how to do this experiment.

Kerry was up first and, as soon as the strands of her hair gravitated towards the balloon, everyone was amazed and could not stop laughing. Soon, everyone was taking turn repeating the process and their reactions still remained the same.

Simple expositions such as this provoke children’s curiosity and empower them to replicate, re-discover and reflect on scientific phenomena.
