Reviews and Testimonials
See what some of our parents say about our centres:
““Without a doubt I would Highly recommend Kindy Patch at Forresters Beach! After spending almost 12 months searching for a facility around the area I was so very happy when I had walked into such a beautiful loving centre. My daughter will be attending her second year this year at the centre she has thrived and excelled tremendously since joining with the help of her beautiful teachers and fellow class members. This centre is always clean tidy and staff are always more then helpful communicating how my daughters day has been. The service that this centre provides is so much more then I could have hoped!! Thanks to all the wonderful teachers at Kindy Patch Forresters Beach.”
My two sons both attend Kindy Patch at Forrester’s Beach, in the preschool room and baby’s room and my husband and I cannot give enough praise to all the team that work at Kindy Patch, Forresters Beach. The Centre is always clean and tidy and they are constantly doing extra things around grounds, including veggie gardens and even new little cubby houses for children to play in, to decking with tables and chairs for the children and of course the awesome play equipment, sand pits and Teachers. All the staff are friendly and always approachable if you have any questions and Lisa (the director) has an open door policy and is always there to greet us as we arrive at the centre for drop off and pick up. They have lots of incursions at the school which I know my 4 year old son absolutely LOVES! They even went over to the local Gym (across the parking lot) and done activities there and my son to this day is still talking about how much fun he had! And the food is amazing! the meals that the kitchen staff prepare are absolutely Delicious! Makes it hard for me to keep up with at dinner time in my kitchen lol. All in all Kindy Patch at Forrester’s Beach is the most amazing place to leave your children for the day, they are in the uttermost professional, caring and clean environment and I completely trust all the staff with my two most precious things in life, my children. Thank you 🙂 Kindy Patch Team!
“My kids have attended Kindy Patch Forries for the past few years. The staff are fantastic and have become friends of our family. They’ve been extremely accommodating when it comes to work changes that require extra days etc. and I really like the holiday system – so much better than trying to find make-up days. It’s also very helpful that the centre is open over the Christmas break. The kids are well-fed with the meals cooked onsite. My kids have made lots of friends with other kids and really love their teachers. I would definitely recommend this centre to anyone looking for childcare in the area.”
“This centre is definitely the best on the coast, I looked for months at all different centres and I decided this was the one within 5 minutes of stepping in the doors, lovely staff, always happy and playing with the children, can tell you in detail about your child’s day and can answer any questions you may have. The centre itself is amazing, the yard is enormous and is filled with new play equipment, bikes, scooters etc, they have sandpit and veggie gardens, cubby house’s literally everything plus they have chickens and other small animals for your child to interact with. Inside is all new furniture and tons of educational toys, they have gourmet meals for lunch and snacks throughout the day. You’ll get daily updates on your child’s day and photos through an app the school have organised and weekly newsletters online. My son loves coming here and he’ll be enrolled in till he goes to school.”
“The staff at Kindy Patch are fabulous. They go above and beyond for the kids and parents, I can’t rate them high enough. They are warm and welcoming, and are always happy to answer any questions. The centre is always clean, and my boys have always loved the food. The support I have been given with my 3 boys over the years has far exceeded my expectations. Lisa the director is amazing, professional and easy going, and the preschool room has such wonderful dynamics amongst the staff. Caz, Michelle and Suzy are of some of the best preschool teachers around. I’m hoping our last year at Kindy Patch is our best one yet. Thank you to all the staff at Forries, you’re all awesome.”
