As parents, my husband and I have peace of mind knowing our son is in the best hands with an excellent level of care, engagement, commitment and enthusiasm shown by all the educators towards us and the children.
Georgia and her team make sure there is always good communication and that all the transitions are completed with smoothly. The door Is always open for any concern and they always invite parent’s input and feedback. We couldn’t be happier with the centre and are grateful for the happy and safe environment it provides to our child.
Maria and Juan
From the moment my daughters and I walked through the doors, Dee Why Kindergarten has felt like a second home. Every morning at school drop off, each child is greeted by their name from the staff at reception, the teachers going between rooms and their educators. Every effort is made to make them feel safe, cared for, more...
happy and that their interests matter with class programs designed around what catches their attention. Every afternoon, at pick up, my daughters have asked whether they get to go back to school the following day and are always disappointed by the answer they get on a Friday afternoon. I would recommend (and have) Dee Why Kindergarten to anyone looking for a day care that feels like a second home.”
