"My girls have been attending this center since they were six months of age up until Kindy (and still using their vacation care service). I have nothing but good things to say about this center. The teachers and staff are amazing and I can not thank them enough for everything they have done for my girls. One of the best things was seeing the smiles on my girl's faces when I dropped them off and seeing that same smile when I picked them up everyday. And I never missed a special moment, as photos were taken and always shared with me (this means a lot as a working parent). The facility itself is well maintained, cleaned and has a lot of variety for the children. They are always doing extra activities e.g. jumping castles, fire brigade visits, shows, celebrating different cultures. The monthly menus are well planned with a lot of variety for the children to eat (and catering to all dietary requirements). Security into the center is also great. This center is amazing and I highly recommend their services - Thanks Kinder Kare!"
