The centre has always been a great addition to our son's life and growth, but especially in the last half a year their service has grown from strength to strength. It is a small centre, and as such is very personal and intimate - the children have plenty of time to interact with different age groups and there seems to be quite a lot of instructed play time, as well as very inclusive, educative, and age appropriate activities. The staff are excellent. I have nothing but positive things to say about the educators in the nursery room, who have supported my son in the past year and are really caring, understanding, and patient. They are attentive to the children's needs and form unique bonds with each child relevant to their learning level and personality. As a dad, there have been times when it felt like my son ranked me 3rd behind mum and the educator he favours. The communication is amazing too. Blyth verbal and written through a daily journal that matches up activities and children's accomplishments to the objectives in childcare legislation. I feel very connected to the centre and they are actively trying to build a community of parents and children.Leigh
My daughter has been attending Mini-Skool since she was 6 months old. She enjoys the 2 days she spends there, learning a range of things from animals to numbers and diverse cultures. She feels safe with her teachers and has made many long-term friends. As a parent, I feel at ease every time I drop her off and know my daughter will be nurtured and cared for by all the mini Skool teachers.Danielle
Educators are wonderful and attentive to each individual child. We've been made to feel welcome and my son is thriving with the education program the teachers have implemented. Love the teachers and am very happy with the choice we've made :)Patricia

Our son has been at Mini Skool since he was 5 months old - we are so so happy with the care he has received, along with all the amazing activities - he is growing up to be such a smart, social, happy little boy.Dawn
I took finding a pre-school for my daughter very seriously. I went to several and as soon as I came across Mini Skool I knew it was the one. The centre has a beautiful community feel, all the carers and teachers are always really welcoming. The school has always been great at communicating with me and I've always felt like I have been a part of everything they do. My daughter was quite shy when she started and the school has been great for helping her to become more confident and readier for primary school. Couldn't have had a better experience, loved every bit!Bridgette
My daughter has been at Mini-Skool since she was 18 months. I was extremely nervous at the thought of leaving my child at day-care as she was very dependent on me and likely to be afraid of separation because she used to see her mother around all the time. Once she started going to Mini-Skool, she quickly formed a strong bonding in her relationship with her teacher. The teachers here at Mini-Skool are extremely affectionate, knowledgeable and caring but among all this, they know how to make a child comfortable in this new environment. Since my daughter has attended this childcare, her development has increased a lot. She is picking up new words and skills every day, she has learned so much from the teachers and often surprise me with innovative sketches.
As my daughter graduated to 3-year-old then to the 4-year-old room, she is receiving the appropriate academic work for her age and also the right amount of social and emotional development that every child need. Every time I pick her up, it’s not just my daughter who is happy but I see all other children the same, happy and busy. It's because the program that Mini-Skool follows is based on a full sequence of exciting activities which allow children to be happy mostly through play and learn new things for themselves at their own pace.
I am forever grateful for the outstanding services Mini-Skool provides. My mind is secure that my daughter is well taken care of and she is happy. Thank you Mini-Skool. I highly recommend this childcare centre.Mubaraka
Fantastic friendly staff with a great early education programRich
The carers are wonderful and they have a great relationship with my daughter. Couldn't be happier with the staff and the activities they hold. Very happy!Marlene
For me, it’s the teachers at Mini-Skool who make all the differences. Their outstanding care, expert knowledge about early childhood and friendly approaches that I know I can always rely on. My 4-year-old son has never a dull moment at this service. Even on a day when he is not well, he would still want to come to the centre. He often makes cards and buys gifts for his teachers to show his genuine connections and appreciations to his teachers.
For my son, it is truly a home away from home. The connections he has for Mini-Skool is total peace of mind for me. Everything about this service from meal to daily routines and learning programs are always at high qualities. I know in my heart my boy is getting the love and care he needs to reach his developmental milestones and most importantly BE HAPPY.
Thank you to all those lovely teachers at Mini-Skool for making it a wonderrul experience for me and my little boy.Munira
