Thank you so much for looking after Samar so well and helping him to settle into his new environment. Samar is so lucky to have such wonderful teachers around him. Thank you so much for all your love and support. I am so very happy to see Samar is always excited and happy to go to his preschool.

Bentley and Madison’s portfolios are amazing! They look so great and are so special to keep and look back on. I can’t believe how big both of them have become. Thank you guys for the great work you put into my babies. Madison loved gymnastics and Bentley has learnt so much in the six months to prepare him for school!

Mila was very excited to start school. Prior to attending this centre, she was still very limited with her choice of words, however I have seen a huge improvement in terms of expressing herself and using her words. Mila loves to tell me about her day and she loves singing me new songs she has learnt. I’m very happy and grateful to have such lovely and engaging teachers leading her. I am excited to watch her learn more.

Starting School - What can we do during lockdown?

Starting school is a significant event for children and for their families and a milestone which many of us celebrate. It is something many children look forward to. Most children settle easily into school, but a few find adjusting to the change takes time.
