Reviews and Testimonials

See what some of our parents say about our centre:

“My daughter transferred to Algester for the kindergarten program currently being offered. The excursions to Algester State School are great for preparing her for prep. The nutritional menu supplied is always a hit with her. The educators here are very welcoming and friendly.”

– Tara

 

“All three of our children have attended Algester World of Learning over the last 4.5yrs. Our childcare needs over this time have changed dramatically from needing just a couple of days for social interaction to needing full time care due to our Business growing qicker than expected. As most mothers, I struggle with letting other people look after my children and missing out on their day to day interactions. However, the teachers at Algester World of Learning are more like family than strangers. They honestly care for our kids the way we would. They have supported us in any decisions we have made regarding toilet training, thumb sucking, diet & discipline. Our kids LOVE the centre and the staff as do we. I honestly believe our kids are in the best centre possible. We have formed friendships with the Teachers that I believe will continue well after our youngest has moved to primary school.”

– Michelle

 

“During the years that my daughter has attended Algester World of Learning the staff have always been helpful and happy. The Director has always cheerfully accomodated any request that I have made regarding change of days etc. My daughter lists her class teachers amongst her friends. We will sadly be leaving the Centre this year but would definitely recommend the Centre to anyone in the area looking for care for their children.”

– Sharon

 

“When I initially visited ALL the centres in our area trying to find the right one for my son, the minute I walked into Algester World of Learning I knew I’d found it. The staff took the anxiety out of leaving my boy in such an unfamiliar situation and made it such an easy transition. I could not have asked for better people to provide the level of care we have received over the last 2 years. The relationships we have with the carers go over and beyond what we could ever have expected, often telling others we have been spoiled with how lucky we have been in finding such a great child care centre. With bub number two on the way, I am really looking forward to the time when we can introduce her to the same lovely ladies that helped care for our little boy.”

– Natalie

 

“At Algester World of Learning the staff love their job and it shows! They genuinely care about all of the children and love that they can have an input into their development. The centre is kept very clean and the children have lots of activities planned throughout the day as well as a large array of toys and books. After searching through more than 30 child-care centres in this area, this one is by far the best!”

– Laura
