Reviews and Testimonials

See what some of our parents say about our centres:

“My son started at 15 months, we were both very nervous but the staff there were very caring and supportive to both of us. I love how I get photos through out the day via their App, Kindyhub and everyday I receive and report on what the children have done or are doing. Value for money? Absolutely! You only need to take spare clothes and a hat as the centre provides nappies snacks and a cooked meal every lunch. I would totally recommend Kindy Patch Maryland.”

– Kelly

“Our daughter has been attending Kindy Patch since she was 10 months old and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the centre. After having a somewhat negative experience at our first daycare centre, it was amazing to find such a caring, positive environment here. The carers are so dedicated and are amazing with the children. The environment is clean and inviting and the staff are always willing to help or answer any questions. My daughter loves her time at daycare and we feel very lucky to have found such a great place for her to go.”

– Rebecca

 

“Cannot fault the centre. Staff, food, education and the care and love they show all the kids have definitly exceeded my expectations. My son loves going!”

“My 8 month old attends Kindy Patch Maryland and I couldn’t be happier with the centre and its lovely staff. When I approached the centre about enrolling my son, I received the warmest of welcomes, a detailed tour of the centre and explanations of their philosophies. It is such a clean and inviting atmosphere, and I feel comfortable leaving my son in the hands of such caring and lovely people. My son enjoys each and every day at Kindy Patch and I look forward to seeing his smiling face when I pick him up! I would definitely recommend Kindy Patch Maryland to anyone looking for a quality centre where you can feel assured your child is being cared for in a loving environment.”

– Jody

 

I highly recommend Kindy Patch, Maryland. All of the staff are really lovely and caring and have taught my son so many new things! I would definately refer my family and friends to Kindy Patch.”

I have 2 boys at Kindy Patch Maryland and they both love it. My eldest counts down the days he can go back so he can see his friends and my youngest is learning so much while in care. I can not thank the teachers there enough. They really are part of our family now.”

– Vanessa

 

I was very nervous about leaving our daughter in care but I knew that she needed the social aspect and the independence. We chose Kindy Patch because we had heard nice things about the center from other parents and when we looked into the services and level of care they provided we were very happy. Our daughter is about to start her second year at the center and we could not be more pleased with the care and kindness provided by the staff over the past year.”

– Tegan

 

“Great centre, great team always helpful and make you feel welcome! Wouldn’t send my babies anywhere else.”

– Emma

 

My daughter has been attending Kindy Patch for the past three years – starting when she was 9 months old. The staff are always friendly and willing to talk each day about what the children have done. The activities provided, including the ‘in-school excursions – puppet shows, drumming performances’ are terrific. The fact that healthy meals are provided is a bonus as I do not need to think about what food to pack each day. A wonderful child care centre.”

– Deborah
