Member Feedback

The entire team -from management till the teachers – are kind, happy, welcoming and professional.
I’m so happy I have this amazing spot just right next to my house.
Even thou the all staff is great, an outstanding note goes to a teacher named Katie for her carisma, energy and her warm and professional approach with the kids.

as an ex customer service manager I have to recognise and give credit and appreciation when a good job is done and so I believe this is the case.
But the best judge is not me… is my daughter… that truly enjoys the place and gets excited as soon as we enter in the facility! (Nov 2017)

Brand new government guidelines were released recently, which highlighted the importance of physical activity and play in young children’s early development. The report outlined the vital role of PLAY and MOVEMENT in early childhood, putting emphasis on encouraging children, particularly those that aren’t walking, to crawl, roll and play – physical activity is now encouraged from birth. ‘Particularly through floor-based play…in safe environments’. Meanwhile children that are up on their feet are now recommended to have at least 3 hours of activity, spread throughout a day with periods of rest in-between.

As stated in the report,these kind of movements…’provide valuable opportunities to build social and emotional bonds with parents, siblings and other children.
