What makes you passionate about working in childcare?

Knowing that we are shaping the minds and educating the next generation as we make a personal impact on each individual we meet throughout the time.

What is the funniest or most memorable moment you can share from working in childcare?

Meeting some previous students, who are now all grown up and gaining feedback from that family that I made a positive impact on their family and child’s life. There is no greater compliment then that.

Why do you believe your centre is an excellent choice for parents seeking the best childcare?

We only employ the best educators who are dedicated to providing a stimulating and exciting program for our children, supported by their caring and nurturing nature and great team like attitude. A chef is present on premises, to provide 5 meals daily.
