Testimonials

Ashgrove Kindy has a lovely inclusive, community feel about it. Most kindies say ‘parents are welcome’ but at Ashgrove, they really mean it, and it feels like families and teachers work together for the best of the child. There are lots of ways to be involved to cater for everyone, including working parents.‘ – Jacqui, parent of past pupil

I was thrilled with children’s learning and development at Ashgrove Memorial Kindergarten. My children were nurtured in a warm, inclusive and respectful environment. Families too are valued and are very much a part of the program. It was a wonderful experience for my husband and me to participate in the family roster days, spending time with the children and being involved in their learning. Ashgrove Memorial Kindergarten was highly recommended to me, and on my experience, I am happy to recommend it to other families.’ – Sue, parent of past pupils
