I can truly say the standards of the facility are stand out amazing, the staff are caring, nurturing and always place my child’s needs first. Thankyou

Russ Travers Doreiàn

After checked three child care centres, I found the best and the most suitable one here for my baby.

As an under 10 months old baby, he always need a lot of attentions and wanted to be hold all the time. The amazing Burwood House team get him likes to explore his own environment and build connection with his friends in one month. He can also change from crawling to standing smoothly and take some steps when holding a table.

The educators work more like a team, they always help each other to meet children’s needs, no matter if the children belong to their class. The director Fiona and assistant director Jemmie always play with children as well. It’s a group of people who really love and care about children.

It’s a new child care centre, you will be surprised about how big and amazing of the physical environment. The countless brand new fun toys, safety equipments, good quality nappies and good foods. How lucky the children enroll here are. Wish I did enroll my baby here earlier.

I would like to give a huge thank you to everyone in the Burwood House team. You are great. 👍
