Absolutely love this daycare. My daughter has been attending here just over a year since she was 10 months old.

Her confidence has sky rocketed due to the excellent teachers she has, and her learning and ability to do so many things has developed so quickly due to all the activities and time they spend with the kids. Plenty of messy play, outdoor play etc.

Great food cooked by the center cook as well and a good range for the kids.

Highly recommend this center if you're looking for a center with great teachers, a wide range of activity and learning opportunities and a safe space for your children :)

My one and only princess Julliana started with them this year. At first I didn’t know what to expect as I’ve been thinking they were simply just babysitters. .However, she has been improving in so many ways and it changed my perception of them. I have learned that they are highly qualified professionals. So far, Julliana shows huge improvements in not only her social development but also her cognitive skills thanks to their daily activities and programs at school. Highly recommended and Julliana’s unborn younger siblings will definitely be attending this centre. I am more focused at work now knowing my baby is surrounded by lovely professionals in an amazing safe surrounding throughout the day.
