“I think what makes MELC a great child care centre is that it is small enough so that the teachers really know each individual child and they all seem to care about the children rather than it being just a job for them.
Both my girls are very attached to the teachers and they can really make or break the whole daycare experience for them. I’m in a position where if the girls didn’t enjoy daycare, I probably wouldn’t send them but struggle away trying to work part time with them around. Now we have a much more relaxed family life as we can enjoy our time apart as well as our time together.
Also, you spend a lot of time outside, which everyone seems to love and you have the right balance in being together as a large group and splitting them up according to age. I believe this makes it easy for them to transition through the rooms as they get older.”
“Since starting at Moorooka Early Learning Centre my son has taken leaps and bounds both socially and educationally. The staff are absolutely fantastic and I feel total comfort knowing he is in safe hands.”
“I was so relieved when I found MELC and my son started going there 2 days a week. After looking at many childcare centres, MELC stood out as being the most lovely, down-to-earth centre with friendly, kind staff. What makes it so special is that it is small centre, with consistent staff and all the age groups get to interact and have lots of time to play outside as part of their day. I feel very lucky that our son is at MELC and reassured that he is spending time at an interesting centre he also loves!”
“Our 2 children have been going to Moorooka Early Learning for the past couple of years, our daughter has gone off to school now however our son still attends. We love this centre as it’s welcoming, creative, clean, friendly and super cute. I could count on one hand the times that either of my kids may have been clingy or upset at drop off, most of the time they’re ready to go play! But most of all we (and the kids of course!) love the educators who are caring, attentive, thorough, always looking to improve and implement the best teachings for the kids. Raquel sends detailed updates and is always happy to answer any questions I have. I would happily recommend Moorooka Early Learning to any family who are looking for a more intimate child care centre. “
All your educators are passionate and knowledgeable about child development and education, you don’t over complicate things, you let kids think for themselves, you realise they are all different and capable of achieving things at different times and you are all genuinely interested in the children in your care. Raquel, I could go in for days about all the things you are doing right! Our little kindy is an absolutely wonderful place for little people to explore their independence and discover their personalities.
As someone who spent many years in childcare, I admit to being extra fussy when seeking out childcare for my son. From my first visit, I knew I had found the right place for him.. The whole team was so welcoming and you just knew that your child would be in safe hands. Regardless of the time I do drop off, there are always activities happening and the kids never looked bored. The staff make such an effort with all the kids and it gives me such peace of mind to know he is thriving there and is very happy
