Reviews and Testimonials
See what some of our parents say about our centres:
“We enrolled our son into Kindy Patch 6 months ago after having a less than favourable experience with another centre and could not be happier. The staff are fantastic, as a parent we are always keep informed of not only our son’s development but general communication of the centre. He enjoys his days there and always comes home with a smile. I highly recommend Jenny and her team.”
“The staff at Kindy Patch are all so warm, friendly and professional. My three year old son currently attends the centre and we are always been welcomed by all the staff and not just his primary caregivers. The centre has a very family atmosphere and extremely low staff turn over. His individual needs are always met in a safe, nurturing environment. We always recommend the centre to any family we chat to regarding childcare.”
“My daughter has been attending Kindy Patch since she was 7 months old, and is now 3. During that time my daughter has always received wonderful care and attention, with tremendous support for me as a working mother. I am kept well informed as to any updates of the centre and occassionally receive a lovely email of photos from the centre showing my daughter having a great time. I feel very comfortable leaving my child at Kindy Patch knowing she is well looked after in a secure and safe environment.”

“I have had my two daughters attending Kindy Patch over the past 3 years. The centre was recommended by a friend and we have loved it from day one. It feels like you’re dropping them at a friend’s house. The staff are friendly and attentive, and my kids just love the activities and teachers. My preschooler has had a structured program this year and has developed the skills to transition to school through the program at Kindy Patch. I highly recommend the centre to other parents.”
“My daughter has been attending Kindy Patch since she was 10 months old. The staff were fantastic helping both her (and I) with the transition. Staff are always happy to take time to talk to me if I call concerned about how well my daughter settled in that day and allay my concerns. They also made settling in easier by employing the same techniques I use to settle my daughter and get her down for a nap. She is now almost 2 and loves it! She has formed close bonds with the staff, particularly Betty. And she’s made lots of friends! I have recommended the centre to all my friends. I love how happy my daughter is and how much she has learnt. I also love the special events and occasions the children get to experience and enjoy. The staff are all caring and warm. I couldn’t be happier.”
“We have been part of the Kindy Patch community for nearly 6 years. Our eldest daughter started Primary School this year. She still loves visiting the centre to pick up her younger brother and sister and visiting her teachers that she formed really strong bonds with over the years. All of our children have had a wonderful experience at the centre and as parents we really enjoy the community feeling about the place. During this time there has been a low staff turnover rate and the teachers deliver high quality care which we feel has contributed to our kids developing into happy, confident people. The programs are also exciting and our children have enjoyed excursions to the local library as well as having special visitors to the centre such as, firemen and farm animals. We highly recommend Kindy Patch and we look forward to another 2 years at the centre.”
“Both of my girls have been at Kindy Patch since they were babies. When we first got a place at the centre, we didn’t realise how great the centre was. The facilities are safe, well organised yet homely, the hours are convenient, the food is great and, most importantly, the staff show how much they care for and respect the children through their daily interactions with them. In the past six years I’ve heard others gripe about certain aspects of their childcare and I can honestly say that I’ve not had any concerns about Kindy Patch. My kids have enjoyed it and (although I may be biased) they’ve grown into very well adjusted and well mannered children. My husband and I could lay claim to being the sole reason for this, however I know we couldn’t have done it without the Kindy Patch staff. I recommend Kindy Patch to any parent and look forward to one more year of having my daughter attend there.”
