Being first time parents, we made sure we did our research when selecting a day-care centre for our son. Since day one, the carers have been helpful and friendly. We go in, and they all know us and our son by name. Having smaller, more intimate rooms, we feel our son Patrick is always getting attention and being included in everything. The daily stories are great in keeping us updated with what the children get up to during the day, but the main thing is, Patrick comes home happy and exhausted from all his fun. He loves his teachers and his friends and that’s the most we can ask for.
We have no hesitation recommending the centre to anyone looking.
We have had our daughter at Mcdowall Village Childcare for just over a year and half and we couldn’t be happier with the way Shannyn has turned the centre around. Her and the staff are so lovely, helpful and keep you informed and up to date with anything happening in the centre. There is something fun and new every month for the kids and our daughter just loves her days there. Thank you Shannyn and all the staff for making Emilia feel so loved and at home with you all.
When I went looking for a day-care for my little boy I was searching for a centre that would care for and look after my son like I do and I have certainly found that with McDowall Village Childcare. The educators are so passionate about what they do and my son absolutely loves his days at the centre which are always filled with so much fun, joy, laughter and love. I’m so grateful to have such a wonderful centre in our neighbourhood.
My daughter has been going to McDowall village childcare for 12months now and every morning when I drop her off at childcare, she’s always so eager to get in the door and start her day.
The team at McDowall show nothing but support towards my child and my family. I find the team here to be of above high standards for caring, nurturing and has the dedication and commitment to the children’s learning. The team at McDowall are always very accommodating to my daughter’s needs (if I have issues about trying to wean, bottle feeding etc.) Which makes me feel comfortable and confident in the staff.
I love that I always get a daily report and photos of my child and her class as to what they did throughout the day though an app on my phone. There is always a new activity or something different that the children are exploring every day.
One of the wonderful things about this childcare is how they have incorporated an agricultural section with a beautiful garden and chickens, I love how my child gets to interact within the garden and is able to help out with the watering and picking of the beautiful fruit and veggies provided, and has a sneaky taste every now and then.
I always enjoy the special events that the centre holds from mother’s day afternoon tea, Christmas and family days, and even fundraising events like pyjama day which raises money for foster care.
It’s amazing to see just how much my daughter has grown and how well educated she has become since being at your centre. She is excelling phenomenally and it’s all thanks to the team at McDowall for always encouraging my daughter and keeping her mind always active.
I would highly recommend McDowall village childcare for anyone looking for excellent quality of care for their child.
Our children have had a wonderful experience at McDowall Village Childcare. The staff are so great with the children and extremely supportive and accommodating towards parents. We have been really impressed with Shannyn and the team and with the exciting and stimulating programme they have put together for the children. Our daughter loves every day at daycare, especially seeing the chickens, checking in on the vegetable garden and playing in the fantastic outdoor space.
Both Chris and I have been delighted with our decision to enrol Alex at McDowall and thank you all for the great work you’ve done with him. We find the warmth and care from all the team has been of a remarkably high standard and also with the communication we receive through the Story Park app and during face to face interactions. We would not hesitate recommending this day-care to anyone.
