I have been involved with Earlybird Long Day Care Centre for 3 years with my son attending over this time. I have found the day care centre to be a very welcoming environment that is always clean, safe and secure, and the meals provided are both nutritious and varied. A very good starting point for any child care facility.
The key benefit of Earlybird Long Day Care Centre would be the staff, who are very engaged and caring of the children. The programming of activities is excellent with plenty of play time, as well as time on special topics such as letters and numbers. Importantly, the attention given to each child and the feedback given to parents is varied, comprehensive and hugely valuable in managing any behavioural issues that arise. The portfolios are a wonderful insight into the child’s day and a precious memento of their early years. I have kept mine with pride and look forward to the day my son looks through these books and laughs.
I am particularly impressed with the school preparation activities that are conducted with the older children. Tt makes a huge difference in familiarising and encouraging children in this next step. I have no doubt the centres approach, combined with wonderful staff will play a critical role in preparing my son in being happy and confident at big school from day one.
I have been very happy with every aspect of care provided by Earlybird Long Day Care Centre and am able to leave the centre feeling comfortable that my child will have a great day.
