Our family has been at Our Little Friends Kindergarten for 8 years. During this time we have experienced nothing but first class care and teaching. There is always a stability with staff making building a relationship between teachers/ carers and family a priority and easy task.
Each day you are given a face to face report as to how your child's day was and there is always a computer with photo's from the day and diaries on the day's events. The set up of the rooms in 2 age groups works so well, yet the outdoor area being combined gives them a chance to mix together. Each parent and family member is always so welcome to participate at the Kindy too which is a lovely thing for both child and family. I have watched all of my 3 children grow up with the skills and confidence they need to start "big school" which has and will make the transition an easier one.
The out of Kindy activities such as the family BBQ's and Disco are a wonderful event to bring families and staff together. Whenever there is a new policy or change the parents input is welcomed by Michelle Kirkpatrick. Never do you feel excluded from this.All my 3 children have never experienced bad separation as they always felt so welcome and nurtured by the staff and surrounding. Even though we moved away to another suburb we still took our children to our little friends, a decision so we are so glad we made. Thanks for all your hard work.
Kindest regards Chris and Rebecca O'Hara.
Our Little Friends is an exceptional Kindy. The staff are friendly yet professional and know each and every child inside and out. The staff were the first to identify our eldest Son as gifted and put in place a wonderful extension program to enable his learning to progress. Each and every child is catered for individually. I can't commend the Kindy, its staff and Director enough, it's the best Kindy on the Beaches.
We became part of the Our Little Friends family when our eldest daughter started at the kindergarten in 2006. From the moment we walked into the centre we felt at ease and bonded with the staff straight away. Most of the team had worked there for many years and we could see that they loved their jobs and the centre. Over the years we have been continually impressed by the staff’s commitment to excellence, their communication with the parents and dedication to improving their knowledge but above all we have appreciated how much they care for our children and the positive environment they have created. Our 2nd and 3rd child have also attended Our Little Friends, each with very different personalities and needs, all of them met with the same caring, keen and positive support. We are now counting down the days until our 4th child can begin and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Our Little Friends to friends and family.
