Hear from families who have attended our Northfield childcare centre...

As a migrant, childcare was the only option. Like any child does, they’re both crying their lungs out on their first day. However the carers were so comforting, and confidently explained to me that kids will normally be fine in a week or so. I honestly didn’t believe them, however after a week, lo and behold they’re happy. Sheryl and the staff knows magic. They have a wide variety of activities so my kids don’t get bored. I also have to add, it’s one of the few places where my kids ate veggies at a very young age. This alone I’ll give them 6 stars, if I can.

Our children have been attending the Northfield centre for a number of years. We have been provided with a lovely, caring and welcoming environment. The director and staff has always ensured our children’s needs are accommodated with support and care. It has always been an approachable environment in which we feel comfortable discussing our children’s needs. Highly recommend this centre.
