“Our daughter had been at Grey Ward from 9 months of age to now, sassy and independent 5 year old. She has transitioned well through the rooms, making a connection with staff members at each progression from babies, nursery, junior kindy and kindy. To begin with, our daughter had a high amount of allergies and without any hassle, the cook created special meals for Ava while still being able to include her in the group with food orientated activities and lunches. The beetroot hummus is a favourite! The education at Grey Ward is of a high standard, with constant feedback about the day’s events to the parent. This had helped us reaffirm that Grey Ward was the right place for our daughter to be. They are verbal and forthcoming with educational ideas and term outcomes. Having a Kindy at Grey Ward was a great relief and had allowed us to use the kindy and day care system to our advantage, rather than moving our daughter between places. The admin staff and back of house are very knowledgeable and can help guide and support the parents through any concerns or queries. While going through Covid 19 and being two parents classed as ‘essential workers’, the world seemed to be going crazy, however Grey Ward stood up and took the challenge on, keeping the kids their first priority and keeping the routine normal and fun for the kids. Grey Ward is a community centre, it’s not all shine like some of the corporate day care centres. The centre has gone through some large upgrades recently and continually upgrade toys and materials where possible. What Grey Ward do is invest in their staff and make sure the right staff are employed and are happy, which is shown by what the staff can do and achieve on a daily basis. You go to Grey Ward for the day care but stay for the community. I recommend this for anyone wanting the homely, caring touch to day care. ”

“My two children have been through every stage of development at Grey Ward – from babies to kindy – and we couldn’t have asked for more. Every step of the way the educators and administrative staff have supported the kids and our family as a whole. The educators are genuinely interested in each child and create fantastic curricula that include interactive and novel learning experiences. The gardens provide a green expanse for little legs to run, jump and explore. It is a welcoming place because the centre has the children, their families and community at its heart. ”

“I couldn’t recommend Grey ward Children’s Centre highly enough. What makes the centre so special is its staff. My children are genuinely cared for by their educators, and they go above and beyond to ensure the children feel safe and at home. I feel at ease leaving my children in their care, knowing that not only will they have fun, they will be in a nurturing environment where they and make friends. I feel like the team at Grey Ward are an extension of our own family, and my children are completely happy and at ease attending there”

“Grey Ward Children’s Centre has been the ideal preschool for my three children (ages now four, six and nine) over the years. The preschool curriculum, with a mix of traditional techniques and learning through play, set my children up for a smooth transition to school. The family community at Grey Ward, (Teachers, carers and parents) provides a relaxed and inclusive environment for children to excel. I wouldn’t send my children anywhere else and highly recommend this preschool for any parent looking for that perfect combination of a caring environment and strong focus on quality education.”

“My two girls grew up at Grey Ward. They had the most caring, fun, professional and knowledgeable educators from the Baby Room to Kindy. This is why we stayed for the Kindergarten program. The curriculum is outstanding. Thanks to Lisa for helping me navigate any admin and Debbie for her vision for the Centre.”

“My son had a previous bad experience at a childcare centre and I thought it would take him a while when we decided to start him at Grey Wards. From the very first day my son felt comfortable and liked the environment he was in as well as the staff at the centre. By the end of the first week he was comfortable enough to say bye to us when we would drop him off. For him to feel so comfortable and show no signs of separation anxiety after only a week and a few orientation days, we know he is being taken care of and he feels safe. This means so much. On top of that the learning structure in the centre is great and he has gained valuable social and learning skills. All staff members are pleasant and approachable at all times, which is so important when dealing with children and families. Thank you so much to everyone working at the centre, it is a hard job and you all do it wonderfully. ”
