Noriter Bilingual Early Learning: what do users think?

Nic Lumagbas: I can't say enough about Noriter and its incredible team! Led by the outstanding Rachael, along with her amazing team including Emma, Lucy, Rehanna, Lady, and Yoojin, this place is more than just a childcare—it's a second home for my son. Their nurturing environment and dedication are unmatched. From comforting hugs to engaging activities, every moment is filled with care and warmth. Special thanks to the talented chefs Hannah and Bhell for the delicious and nutritious meals. Noriter isn't just a childcare center; it's a supportive community. Grateful for the lasting impact they've had on my son. Highly recommend to all parents seeking quality care and a nurturing atmosphere.

Yu Hong: Very nice centre with a real sense of community. The management and educators are really open minded in their teaching philosophy and it translates to happy children. When I used to work there I felt a strong sense of family and belonging which I miss till this day. I highly recommend this centre.

marge b: Both my children went to this childcare and they have positive and memorable experiences in Noriter. I praise the admin and staff for their concern for the kids and dedication to their craft.

Michael BRBCycling: I sent both of my children there for the past three years and it’s the most amazing place I could have ever hoped to have sent my children.I trust Rachael and her team with my kids as they look after them as if they are their own children. The staff are fantastic, really caring, knowledgeable and always communicate important things we need to know.The facilities are clean, modern and thoughtfully designed to include a nice open and natural environment outside. When the weather is good, the kids also would do safe and supervised walking excursions to local parks and reserves.I really have nothing but praise for the staff at Noriter, they have done a wonderful job helping teach and nurture my children.

Amy Shan Huang: I did my work placement at Baby's room in this centre.Neha,Emma and Lucy were so friendly and welcoming. I can see love from their eyes when they talk to children. I learned so much from Neha and Emma. Neha knows every child's needs just like a magic and all children love her back. When I see Emma planing activity, she is so thoughtful and planned more challenged level for those who developed faster so that everyone can get something from the activity. Lucy cleaned all toys several times a day, to make sure the play environment for them is clean and safe. All of the team talk with baby with patience and full respect which I think even parents can hardly do this.Plus, they have really healthy and Yummy food !!!

Gemma Green: Positive:Professionalism,Quality,ReliabilityMy son has been attending Noriter for a little over 18 months now. I love it. It is staffed by the kindest and most compassionate people who all go above and beyond to ensure my son is cared for and thriving under their care. I can’t recommend Noriter enough.

MW “MW”: It's been unfortunate that until now with this centre, there hasn't really been a "educational focused" centre in the Westall/East Side of Clayton South. The West side of Clayton South has been getting all the attention and it's great to finally get better amenities in this pocket of Clayton South. From our visits to surrounding child care centres, my perception is that most are really focused on "child minding" while education comes in 2nd. However that's just a view and probably not an accurate reflection on the great work these childcare centres are doing.In saying this though, the perception is that this educational centre is brand new with multi-lingual staff and large bright rooms. In fact, I don't think it even says "childcare" anywhere.. it focuses of being an Early Learning Centre.They have "house rules" which I like including - shoes off, for kids and parents, and a preference to natural items, minimising the use of plastic.It's a boutique centre so they can cater for the child well without us just being a number. Most importantly, it's not just a "child care" with all the learning tools they have, it's definitely an Educational Centre for the young.Only issues would be the following1. If you work in the city, the centre opens at 7.30am.. so hard to get to the city on time by 8.30am.2. Centre closes at 6pm. Again, if you work anywhere near the city, its near impossible to get back on time if you leave at 5pm. As Clayton Station/Westall station are both 15 minutes walk to the platform, you will need to leave work early to pick up your child.Hopefully they will extend - maybe 7am to 6.30pm to cater for staff in the city.UPDATE - July2020. Since writing the above 2 years ago, my child is still attending this childcare. They are going strength to strength and my rating of them is still high. During this pandemic, they have tried many things to keep the kids safe and also entertained. Puppet Shows, in house training, cooking, etc... its all varied and from the 2 years of experience, all the kids that attend look happy, more educated and observant and well mannered. Well done.

Wadood B.: Very passionate, caring, and innovative educators.Amazing services, modern & clean facilities, healthy food, outstanding outdoor play area.Strongly recommended.

Good Life: No. 1 Childcare centre in Clayton South. Proudly recommend

pjypolly pjypolly: My sons is so happy here. He has lots of good friends , he said the teachers are his friends too. The teachers here are so creative and they created lots of innovative experiments for kids to touch and feel . My son almost couldn’t speak any English when he was just attended. Flora gave more attention to him and speak Chinese to him and introduce other kids who can speak Chinese to my son which made him feel safe and comfortable. This environment makes him learn English very fast. it is our lucky to get to know this Child Care. Thanks everyone here!

AA: My son was in this place for a long period of time. The owner Mrs. Rachael Forday is a wonderful person who is dedicated to work, providing everything that serves the children, developing their personalities and their scientific and practical knowledge.The center has great, and very friendly staff. The children will practically feel as family . This is what I think is the reason for the success of this place. Overall, I highly recommend this childcare for any family looking for education development, safety, fun for their child

Alexander Chernyak: Amazing childcare! Great teachers, interesting activities, very high standard of food and facilities

Rain Zhang: This a fantastic place for babies and kids. Brand new with a lot of natural material. I love the concept of multicultural and bilingual. How can you get kids to learn another language? To bring the language into their day to day life. They also provide natural and healthy food, no added sugar is important for health conscious families. I’m feeling comfortable leaving my baby in their care. Overall a very good childcare and hope it continues to introduce more great ideas.

Ssaunie Lee: My kids go there and love going! The centre is so warm and the Educators are so amazing. The programs they create based around Reggio Emilio is truely unbelievable! And all the children not just mine have totally embraced the empowerment the Educators allow them to be. Creativity! Is the best way I can explain it. Can’t speak highly about this Centre.

Yvonne Lee: The staff at Noriter are very caring, experienced and warm towards children. The room environment is very inviting and thoughtfully designed for children with nature inspired equipments. I can see the fun energy and happiness in the room whenever I am there. They provide very nutritious meals, morning tea and afternoon tea. I highly recommend Noriter.

Kimmba Bilingual Early Learning Centre: what do users think?

Ronicka Sanchez- Atilano: Our baby girl went to Kimmba since she was 5 mo. Kimmba became her second home, where she was dearly loved and cared for. There’s nothing better than seeing your daughter smiles as she enters daycare and nothing better than going to work with a peaceful mind.

Bec Morris: and the photos and documents collected by the carers throughout the year is also something we looked forward to and cherish.The kids also learned about helpful things like yoga and breathing techniques.The kids always ate well and nutritionally with the opportunity to try new things. I always appreciated that the kids had warm meals cooked in the Kimmba kitchen. The kids also developed some beautiful relationships with other kiddos that we still keep up with to this day.Kimmba carers identified a couple of behavioral issues and we worked together to help manage this for all of our benefits. This also helped inform our decisions on when to transition our kids to school. Ultimately we kept one of ours in Kimmba for an extra year which in reflection was an excellent decision.We are particularly grateful for the time our youngest could spend at Kimmba during COVID lockdown, and as essential workers. This meant that one of our kids had a largely uninterrupted couple of years, in contrast with our preppy who missed quite a bit of school.Thank you to Kimmba and all our carers, we are so grateful for your support, patience and kindness.

Daniel Meehan: Our daughter has been at Kimmba since she was 11 months old, has just turned 2, and we couldn’t speak highly enough of our experience. Our daughter is bursting with excitement when we drop her off, and always happy when we pick her up. Her language and social skills have developed exponentially since she started at Kimmba, we love the team there!

Gigi Silk: The best childcare centre you will find. Our daughter started at Kimmba when she was 10 months old. She was a quiet, shy little kid who couldn't yet crawl and was really nervous with new people. With the help of Marisha and the team at Kimmba she has thrived! The place feels like a family with every educator knowing every kid and all the kids across age groups knowing each other too. Our daughter is happy, running around, learning from the older kids and also learning how to be gentle with the younger kids. In addition to English she's learning French, as well as Mandarin and Spanish in the playground which is so wonderful for her developing brain. We love it!

Rachel Wong: At first hesitant to send our son off to daycare at just 8 months old, Kimmba has been nothing short of amazing and we've loved the experience so much we've even increased the number of days! Marisha runs an amazing centre with the most energetic, enthusiastic and caring team. Our son loves his teachers and has settled in so well. He's well fed, sleeps well and has a fabulous time every time he attends.The team is attentive and the bilingual aspect is a huge bonus for our Chinese family. Can't wait to see our son grow up at Kimmba over the next few years! Thank you Marisha & the Kimmba family!

Roxanne Phillips: I’m not a review writing person but Kimmba is absolutely wonderful. This review is rather long but I encourage you to read it to the end particularly if you are a parent fretting about daycare providers.If you are looking for a daycare centre look no further than here, the love, care and education the children of all ages receive is beyond exceptional. All of the educators are extremely lovely, gentle and really go out of their way to ensure that each and every child is nurtured and well looked after. It’s a small centre so each child receives a lot of one on one attention. Kimmba has a beautiful homely feel and positive atmosphere not at all like a fast food chain or transactional business enterprise like some other daycares I had seen. It was the only childcare centre I had witnessed where all the children seemed to be genuinely happy. The director Marisha is amazing and passionate about not only looking after but also educating the children of all ages, no child is considered too young to learn, one of the many other things that makes Kimmba unique and stand out from other childcare providers. She actively engages with every child and family and is just as involved and on the ground with the children as all the other educators are, she certainly never holes herself up in the office and is never too busy to talk to you or address any concerns. She has a wealth of experience as an early childhood educator.The billingual aspect is fantastic even if you are raising your child in a language not offered by the centre because Kimmba really understand the idiosyncrasies and needs pertinent to multilingual families however I would have sent my son there regardless. The different cultures represented in educators, children and parents is wonderful to see particularly as we have a multiracial family too and I like the fact that my son will grow up seeing lots of children of different nationalities. I was very worried about starting my son at daycare particularly as he had separation anxiety but Marisha put me at ease and was the only childcare director who offered any level of understanding or a workable solution.My husband, myself and my son could not be more impressed by the love, care and education that my son receives at Kimmba, he’s always so happy when he gets picked up to go home. Our only regret is that there is no flow on primary school.

Christian Jones: Positive atmosphere and friendly staff who always greet us warmly. Our child was always very happy to attend. The organized activities were fun and the bilingual environment was beneficial.

S L: Kimmba is a hidden gem! We have been very pleased with the care our son receives at Kimmba from Marisha and all the staff, mainly because he is so happy to go every time. It is not a big centre so the benefit is that all of the staff and children know each other well. We have found the process of settling him into childcare easy because of the care, thought and attention shown by the staff every day. Highly recommend, especially for families looking for a centre that offers bilingual education.

Linda Wang: My son and I both like this kindergarten very much. He has been in kindergarten for more than four months. Before taking him home every day, he happily hugged each teacher and said goodbye. The teachers are very patient and take good care of the children.Before, my son went to another kindergarten with a high government rating, but after entering, he found that it was not good. The teachers had a lot of turnover and the teachers did not know how to take care of the children.After the lock down, I decided not to go there again. Fortunately, I found Kimmba Bilingual ELC!A bilingual kindergarten like this is really great for new immigrant families like us. My son adapted quickly to kindergarten life and learned both languages.When I was just getting used to it, Marisha would keep communicating with me through text messages and send me photos of my son in kindergarten in real time. Such a teacher is so considerate!I highly recommend this kindergarten👍, it is small and warm, like a family, every child can be fully cared for😄

Reetika Sharma: which takes the focus away from development of children.We are the happiest and would surely recommend Kimmba to everyone who is looking for a homely childcare. Also, if you are a parent looking for a childcare then please don't just look at the childcare ratings by the department and decide which childcare is exceeds the expectations rather visit a centre and see if the kids are really happy there or not.

Kelly Ingram: Both boys love going to ‘school’ and that is because of the truly amazing staff.It is only a small centre and that is part of its charm - it’s like a big family!Thank you Marisha and to ALL of the team at Kimmba, I am so grateful for you all!

Fred Wiley: So happy that we sent our youngest one here, she went right though to complete her Kinder. I found everyone including the owner, Marisha, to be extremely friendly, polite and indeed respectful to everyone, she has trained and put together a great team! They are all very passionate with what they are doing and we are very grateful for what they did to transition our youngest one. The resources and programs available were fantastic and being immersed in the multilingual language program they have developed meant what they offered us at Kimmba was second to none. It was a home away from home!

Suraj Patel: We are so happy with Marisha and her team at Kimmba. For the past few years Kimmba has consistent teachers and a wonderful chief there to look after children so we don’t need to worry about seeing new teachers frequently. Marisha has installed one of the first Anti-bullying policy in childcare so we know staff are well looked after therefore, they take a great care of my child and always insures that the whole centre is in a homogeneous environment for us all to enjoy. Can’t thank Marisha enough for the important work she has implemented in Kimmba.

QiQi: I have to say Worth to travel 30 minutes everyday in the morning!The most lovely and wonderful child care centre my child has been to! I was been introduced to here by my friend who has done researches regarding child education.My child has been to a few child care facilities, but they got no patience to deal with my child due to my child’s late language development. This bilingual care centre help my child develop both Mandarin and English.I want to say thank you to Marisha who is always caring about my family and child, she did so much to help me! As a super busy mom, Marisha and the team has delivered my child a lot of love!

Annie Xu: It is a lovely centre and teachers are very friendly. Give me a very warm homely feeling.

Changyi Bo: What a warm, welcome and lovely center. Happy children and happy teachers. So grateful that we’ve been on the waiting list since 2018 and it is finally our term after the holiday. Those teachers we saw last year during our visit are still working here. How fantastic! Highly recommended.

Stephanie Pyers: Our son had been going to Kimmba since May and loving it. But when he broke his leg I thought he wouldn’t be able to attend and contact Marisha. Marisha replied that same night with concern and advised that children with broken legs had still managed to attend in the past. The team have been so supportive around our sons additional needs. I can’t speak highly enough of them!

Gail O: With a heavy heart we have had to shift daycare due to a house move. We loved Kimmba and our daughter had a special bond with the carers and other children there. It has been such a good experience for her in a warm and loving environment and we will miss you all very much. Muchas gracias, mi amigos.

Stephanie Lewis: verg good centre

St Catherine's Early Education Centre (Childcare): what do users think?

Jane: with wonderful staff. Most of our daughter’s time has been spent in the kinder room and I can’t speak highly enough of the teachers and the program that they run. They are very attentive to the Childrens’ needs, and will often report back with what they noticed about my daughter that day, and email resource to look at with her at home. They have a small outdoor area and often go on local excursions. They do not make updates during the day to an app like some centres do

A Kaur: Can’t thank enough to all the educators for looking after our daughter, she is always happy and smiling when I drop her or pick her up. Will definitely recommend to other families.

Kate Hodgson: We’ve had our two children at this centre for the last 2 years and love it. A real community feel, and fabulous educators that really care.

Eva Fenwick: My daughter has attended SCEEC for 3 years and we are extremely grateful for the kind, caring, and individualised care she has had throughout this time. The staff are friendly and genuine, the educators are excellent and have prepared my daughter for prep Ned year in every possible way. The centre routinely goes above and beyond for families and has clear and consistent communication, which is very helpful for busy working parents. The food & facilities are great and the centre jus received ‘exceeding standards’ rating in all domain which does not surprise me. We will be sad to leave next year!

Marta Kryvetska: We are new in a country so my son didn’t know the language but educators made everything possible to adapt him and feel safe and happy from the very beginning of the journey! No words to express my gratitude to you! It will be so sad to leave you when the school starts. Educators Iris, Gabby - you know how to be friends for kids, it worth so much ❤️

Dumindu Herath: for more than 9 months. The location is very convenient for us and immensely helpful with the recent settling in North Melbourne.The educators and team are very skillful, knowledgeable and extremely helpful. And she is loving the food there. Planning to send our younger one for 3+ Kinder next year.

Jack McNaught: The team at St Catherine's is fantastic. They are flexible and easy going but also professional and caring. Our daughter has had nothing but good experiences and is excited to go there each time.

Melissa Hartmann: We love St Catherines and so do our children. The educators and team are warm, knowledgeable and experienced. We love that this is a smaller centre, where our little ones are cared for as individuals with their own likes and needs. Accordingly to our little one - the food is also excellent!

Amelia Tampubolon: Amazing and passionate educators and staff. I have seen how much my son has developed in language, creativity, independence, social and motor skills. The centre has considerate space and a variety of facilities to accommodate activities both indoors and outdoors and upholds a high safety standard. As a newly migrant family, we appreciate the diversity and feel welcomed here. Thank you very much!

Kerri Quigley: Our little person started in the nursery room at 7 months old and loves going to St Catherine's each day. The wonderful educators are nurturing and have created a space that is homely, fun and adaptable in these challenging times. Thank you to the team at St Catherine's for everything you do to support our family, it is very much appreciated.

Carly Cameron: Both of our children have attended St. Catherine's Early Education Centre. We have been so impressed with the level of personalised care provided by the staff. They are genuinely invested in the development of the children. Our eldest child experienced such a happy and secure foundation at St Catherine's, which set her up for a very confident and positive transition to Prep. Our youngest is still there, which means we get to enjoy being a part of this beautiful and supportive community for years to come!

Craig Iapozzuto: We started at the centre in 2020 and have had a very positive experience. The educators/carers are well educated, caring, and always provide feedback.

Tin Nguyen: Excellent caring trustworthy staff. Great experience from baby room to kinder.

ning dai: Great professional childcare, full of family like educators. Excellent nutritional menu that helps our children to grow in a healthy way.

Thank you Genius- you truly are genius in every way! Rupal Gupta

mohammed alaidarous: 非常好,乾淨,工作人員很好

Ameer Hamza Khan: Staff at Genius Childcare is amazing especially Amanda. She went above and beyond to help us finalise bookings for our kids. Our kids love it here and are excited to go eveyday.

Nataly AG: Genius at Collins St. service is great, i feel my daughter is in a safe place and they are always eager to hear parent's petitions

Anita Peake: I’m really happy with the facilities at genius Collins street, but the educators at this childcare are second to none. My son has been attending Genius for almost 3 years and often refuses to leave at pick up, this is very reassuring as a parent that he is in the right place. The management team are also very helpful and always willing to help in any way they can. I highly recommend this daycare centre.

Louise Kung: Honestly I cannot say enough great things about this place. All the staff and educators are lovely people and my 2 year old son loves coming here and playing with his friends. They have great, modern facilities and a large outdoor playground. Communication via their app is excellent with daily/week reflections & photos posted every week. They have remained open during the COVID pandemic and supported families wherever possible. Such a wonderful place with amazing people

Audrey Fox: We have been attending this day care centre for almost 4 years and are extremely impressed with the facilities, management and staff. They all go above and beyond for the families and my little boy LOVES going. During the COVID pandemic they have tried their hardest to accomodate as many people as possible and have been great with communication and assistance. As a working mum it has been a huge relief to know that when I drop my boy off there he is well cared for and happy to be there. I highly recommend this centre.

Wen Wang: The carers from Genius are absolutely amazing and have been looking after my child since she was 5 months old. It is wonderful to see my daughter reach out for them during drop off and surprise us at home with the skills that she's picked up from day care.The centre has always been great at responding quickly to my emails and queries and are prompt at updating feed/nappy/sleep status on the app. The facility itself is clean and filled with toys and provides a safe outdoor area where the children can run and play.

Alpha Early Learning Centre: what do users think?

ryan b: Amazing daycare and kindergarten program, educators are amazing. Would highly recommend.

Annie Schneider: Positive:Quality,ValueAlpha is the warm and loving second home for your kids. Alpha have been absolutely fantastic in welcoming my three girls into the centre. Everyone that works there goes above and beyond to make my kids feel special and nurtured. I absolutely recommend Alpha. They have been so important to our family.

Ollie Walmsley: Positive:QualityTwo happy kids through this place over 4 years. The carers love the kids, like, really really love the kids. It's a wonderful place and we'll miss it.

Lisa Eskander: We couldn’t be happier. Most of the staff have been there over 10 years, some even over 30 years, which I think is important for consistency. The staff are loving and friendly. We love the Greek program where the kids learn Greek as well as English.

Camilla Lempriere: We LOVE Alpha, our little boy loves it and the teachers are fantastic, supportive and professional.

Costa Constantaras: We've been at the Alpha for nearly a year now and all I can say is it is nothing like what I expected it to be. When we move to Melbourne I was looking for somewhere cosy for the kids to settle into and as a bonus to give them some extra exposure to Greek. What I got was much more than that. I have not had a single day of the kids complain about having to go to school, not one day of tears as I drop them off, educators and staff that have taken an interest in each of the kids as well as the family life outside of daycare, a friendly group of parents and kids and two settled and learning 4 year olds. There's always something fun and interesting going on whether it be different animals, activities, or concepts. They’re also now little preachers – “think green, healthy body, heathy eating = healthy teeth” or “no we can’t have that now, we will have to brush our teeth because it will cause plaque” or “we need to put that in the recycle bin” or “we should plant more trees for fresh air”. Giving feedback and observations is not just a report, it's live and given to you daily whether it be from their main educator or others in the centre. I cannot believe how quickly the kids have picked up Greek! From barely understanding it to now singing songs, understanding, and even speaking here or there even if it doesn't always make sense. The fees are reasonable, better than most and while they don’t have the space, shine and modernity of some other centres, the homely feel and creative ways of using the space they have more than makes up for it. I don’t go home wondering if my kids are missing out on something, I know they are safe, being looked after and best of all growing and learning by a truly engaged group of teachers/educators/support staff. I even get the occasional selfie...

Carla Room: I have two boys who have attended Alpha from 12 months of age and I cannot praise the centre enough. The carers are true carers, I never walked into the babies room without seeing them with arms full , either cuddling , feeding , settling .. their hands are always full catering to the babies' needs. The food at the centre is not only delicious but healthy and prepared in house .. I see reports that my kids have eaten not one but 2 sometimes 3 bowls of either lamb and veg, lentil soup, spanakopita , spag bol .. some mornings when doing drop off, the smell from the kitchen makes my mouth water. My eldest is currently completing his second year of kindergarten with Angela and Eleni .. we decided to hold him back with their wise council, he was young and not socially developed, he is reserved and shy by nature and we have seen an amazing transformation this year . Our son has developed beyond belief in terms of his confidence, he is a leader in the classroom and because of his kind nature has made many friends this year and he is now ready for prep next year when he will turn 6. My youngest is in year 3 kinder and came home last week telling me to think green , he tells me what we should recycle and that we should use the small flush button for wee and the big flush button for poos ... at age 3 he knows about recycling and how to minimise wastage ... they teach them and they celebrate diversity of cultures, expose them to learning different languages which is a massive gift for their developing brains .. I literally could not ask for more .. I will miss going to Alpha when my kids are at school .. truly wonderful.. Thank you everyone at Alpha , we 'heart' you !

Freya Fowkes: My daughter loves the gumnuts room. the educators really make the place creating a lovely family environment. with no/low staff turnover I know that she is getting the best continuity of care which is so important at this young age. Highly recommend!

Scott Wilson: Am very pleased with this centre. Th educators are very experienced and loving towards the children. I have noticed incredible advances in my child's development since enrolling into alpha. Would highly recommend.

Seth Aitken: Great child care centre. Very educational, caring and nurturing environment

Anoush Hoekman: . The staff are warm, loving and caring. Most of them have been have been working there anywhere from 10-30+ Years. This in itself says a lot about the values of the centre and the fact that the educators love what they do. We love the sense of community and the fact that children are taught and encouraged to celebrate the multicultural society we live in. Most importantly we know that are daughter is loved and cared for. We would highly recommend Alpha!

Matthew Healy: Delightful staff, kids love going, good experience.

Zoe Elizabeth: I have twins who have attended alpha for the last 18months and we all absolutely adore it, the staff are fantastic and they are so excited to attend each day. Could not ask for a more caring, nurturing and supportive environment for my children to be in. Highly recommend.

Eleni Papavasileiou: We found that Alpha was the best choice for ensuring a multicultural experience in a warm, friendly environment with professional and consistent support. Our child was supported in adapting and feeling confident and secure following our arrival to Australia, while the staff listened to our needs during that transitional time. Our child enjoys all the real animal experiences, celebrating multicultural holidays and learning through play. Our child has made strong bonds with the staff and children, enjoys an equal amount of physical and intellectual activity, is confident and happy. We will miss Alpha when our little one goes to school next year; it has been lovely to have that sense of community and warmth but also the confidence that our child is fully prepared for primary school. We would definitely recommend Alpha to anyone.

Paul Carter: Love lives here. The educators at this warm centre are well trained, skilled and experienced. It's rare in many childcare centres, but the Alpha educators consistently bring a high level of enthusiasm and dedication to their work. It's obvious they take seriously their mission and are across contemporary theory and practice. For two years my daughter benefitted from the worldly outlook offered in the teaching - foreign languages, strong ideas of community, diversity and a wide and entertaining variety of channels to deliver basic learning. Song, dance, drama, sports, recreation, visits to the "olderly". Incursions. Excursions. Culture. Community. The children here are happy, relaxed and confident and leave ready for school.

F Yaxley: A warm and caring centre filled with happy children.My daughter attended for two years and benefitted from skilled educators for both years. I was able to trust these ladies to both educate her and provide love and care.The integrated kinder program is excellent, led by a skilled and experienced team. The children are taught multiple languages, in 2018 these were English, Greek and Japenese. They learn through art, language, music, dance and play. The learning experiences are well planned and designed to keep the children focused and entertained.The children are happy, wanting to stay longer at the end of the day.Having attended multiple centres we can throughly recommend Alpha.

Susie Wall: I just found this review and felt I urgentlly needed to set the record straight.I have had nothing but a fantastic experience with Alpha. I have had two children go through the centre from 9 months old and have experienced each level of care and education the centre offers.My eldest child started school this year and could not have been better prepared - he is curious with a solid foundation of his own sense of self and the role he plays in a shared classroom environment.The cultural outreach side of Alpha has given both my children and myself an insight into a world beyond Melbourne - with Greek language, music, dancing and community that he could not have received at another centre.I find the staff warm, approachable and loving to my children - and a key parent advice line for me.I have one more year of Alpha in my life before my second child starts school - and I will certainly miss them in my life.

Guardian Childcare & Education St Kilda North: what do users think?

KayLyn O_O: Would recommend this centre to any parents....Amazing in everything needed Iin a centre

Melissa Chiem: Our last day today and I have never felt so sad to leave a city because of the exemplary care, love and fun provided to our daughter here at Sunnyside Lane. She has been in their care since 6month old to 12month old and developed confidence, socialising, and some cheeky habits. The educators are so attentive, and management is very supportive. Highly recommend. We chose this place after touring 5 other centres, and it was definitely the right choice. We could not be more grateful to the staff for nurturing, educating, and caring for our family and working together to make sure our little ones best interest was front and centre. Literally every day she leaps out of our arms for a cuddle from her educators and gets mad on days she didn't attend 😂. She loves them so much too.

Cathy Kuang: I took a tour today with Joanna, who is a really nice and passionate educator. She showed me around and expalined everything in such a detail. She answered all my questions honestly and directly. The environment is amazing, the staff are awsome!

Abby Cormack: Absolutely whole heartedly LOVE Guardian St Kilda North. My children are so cared for and their development has gone from strength to strength. The Educators take a personalised approach and feedback on our children's progress and learning. Our two girls are thrilled to be there daily and wake up and look forward to attending. We can't speak highly enough about this wonderful family at St Kilda North. Thank you to Mei and all the team.

May Baker: Great friendly staff!

Joyce Saun: My 14 month old son started at Guardian Childcare & Education St Kilda North in the baby room in August 2020 in the middle of stage 4 lockdown.I had an online zoom tour by the centre manager Jose who's very helpful and friendly, and I was very impressed by the facilities, staff and menu.The centre's and building covid procedures are excellent and gives me peace of mind My baby went to Gaby the baby room supervisor immediately on the first day of orientation.My baby settled in quickly and moved to the toddler room after a month and is thriving. They have many activities and I can see my son's rapid growth and understanding.The food is delicious and healthy and caters for my son's intolerance.It is important for me to get updates on how much he eats and his nappy changes which the staff are happy to show me daily.It was a big decision to move to Melbourne but Guardian Childcare & Education St Kilda North made my baby's transition easier, which made the entire move more enjoyable.Thankyou Jose, Mei, Jess, Gaby, Basuli, Marla, Lydia and everyone that I haven't mentioned.PS The underground carpark is a huge plus as we no longer have to run in the rainNov 2022 - Love the smaller classes compared to other huge centres, I feel there is more attention on each child. Lynda the chef serves a big interesting variety of healthy food daily to increase my child's taste buds.Mei goes above and beyond to accommodate for casual days and ALL the educators and staff are wonderful, especially Goun, Donna, Shruti and everyone in Raindrop. Thankyou All xx

Jacqui Withers: The educators in the Sunnyside Room are not only professional but they care and love our son as much as we do. He loves going every day and we have so much comfort knowing he is being well looked after and cared for.

Amitava Paul: Great Centre, Amazing educators & caring management team. My 4 YO daughter loves going here and she has learnt a lot of things from this centre. Activities like Show & Tell really boosts the confidence among the children & their peers and she has started interacting with this world a lot more. Thank you Team! Keep up the good work.

Ellie G: is almost there. It is a very safe environment for the kids to express themselves in any way, the staff is amazing, great management, always willing to listen and help whenever they can. I’ll miss them once my second child start school. 😊

Johnny Wang: I used to go here it was great but they did change a bit of things
