What parents say
‘I love that we are greeted every morning with smiles and friendly faces. My kids just basically run in and start playing, they are very comfortable here.
The carers are very compassionate. If we have separation anxiety they take my child and do some one on one caring with them, so I can go to work during the day and know that my child is being cared for and loved. They are an extension of myself while I am away.
The meal service is a huge plus. Kym is a wonderful cook. It always smells great when you come in to drop your kids off. You want to stay and eat yourself. The kids eat well here.
At the end of the day if my kids are happy, I’m happy.’ Sara – parent of child at The Gap Child Care Centre.
