Reviews and Testimonials
See what some of our parents say about our centres:
“Well presented centre with amazing n very caring staff. My child had lovely memories with staff and kids.”
“Our son thrived at Kindy Patch, and he really developed a great bond with his educators. He went 5 days a week and over a 6 month period, he was only sick once. It is an extremely clean centre, all staff are amazing and felt like family. If it wasn’t for moving, we would still be there. Thanks to all at Kindy Patch”
“My daughter has been at Kindy patch 1 since she was 9 months old. We have loved the centre since. She is very well looked after and loved by the educators. All the staff are amazing and helpful and puts my mind at ease knowing she’s safe and happy at daycare! Would definitely recommend Kindy Patch 1 to anyone!”
“I just want to thank all of the staff at Kindy Patch Springfield 2 for taking care of my daughter Mikaela during her time there. As a single child, she was afraid in the beginning but after a few days, she could not get enough of the place. She made many friends and learned essential social skills amongst other things. I would recommend them to anyone who needs such services. Thank you so much!”
“An amazing family environment. I love dropping my boys off knowing how well cared for they are. It makes it easier to leave them!!!”
