                        RECOMMENDATIONS


                        “I am writing this with great pleasure to be able to support the centre but also to give the wonderful staff members the feedback regarding their performance.

                        We have arrived 3 years ago to Australia and Gil has attended the centre for nearly that time.

                        Gil started as a baby 10 months in the Joey’s room. It was love in first sight. He integrated quickly into the life of the centre and attached almost immediately to the carers.

                        We have brought a child to the centre with great pleasure and picked up a happy healthy safe child who is treated with love and given the stimulation that are suitable to his developmental stage.

                        A dash of sadness surrounded me when he moved to the platypus room. Well, it’s hard to see your last baby grow. It’s irreversible. But the time was right for him to move on and again he felt so happy to come to the centre each morning and I’m so happy and relaxed with his happiness knowing he is in the best hands I could ask for.

                        He was challenged and given the opportunity to grow and explore. He is constantly loved and always happy in the centre.

                        I would like to THANK the team in the Platypus room and a bit late to extend my appreciation and love also to the Joey’s team.

                        Not saying goodbye yet as we are still in the centre until the time is right for Gil to go to prep, but it is well deserved to say Thank you and I love each one of you who touched us so deeply:

                        Helen N, Hansa, Ashraf, Bec, Lekha, Tania, Jenny, Teigan, Catherine and last but not least Carol and Marcia.

                        WE appreciate the love a care and level of stimulation, education and boundaries.

                        We LOVE you All!

                        Kinder team, here we come!”

                        Gil, Yaara and the Dromi family.


                        “I arrived new to Melbourne in the middle of winter with no friends, family or support network and the urgent need to find daycare for my two boys to continue my part-time job. I went to countless daycare centres, but none really felt right. The majority felt like mega centres with a strict business model which seems to lean towards making profits rather than care and provide support for the children.

                        Virginia Park was the 12th centre I visited in 3 days and the moment I walked in I knew it was where I wanted my kids to be. Virginia Park is actually about the children and you feel the sense of community and care. I could never have dreamed of finding such a perfect environment for my children; not only are they lovingly cared for they learn and enjoy the countless activities and events. Over the last year I have seen my children blossom with confidence and learn more then I though was possible for their age groups.

                        The best part of the Virginia Park without a doubt is the amazing staff. My children love the educators like family, and I trust and value their advice – which I request endlessly. This centre means more to me than words can express, I am beyond grateful that I found it and that me and my boys get to be a part of the beautiful community they have created.

                        Thanks,
                        Kathy Costa”
