My daughter started with Explore & develop at the age of 2yrs and just recently graduated. Thanks to the great safe environment, the facilities, the educators and Marcelle, she bloomed into a beautiful young individual and developed great skills, ready to enter the next milestone - school life. As working parents, I needed a great caring and trustworthy environment for my daughter and this is exactly that. Marcelle and her team have an open door policy and always were friendly and open and honest with the communication. I recommend this centre to all families ????
My older son started here when he was turning 3. He had no language skills or social skills when he first started but 2 years on, by the time he graduated and got fully ready for kingy, he became this confident and sociable kid. Every educator in this centre is professional and warm hearted and families can feel that they genuinely care about the children. The level of care exceeds expectation and educational programs are carefully prepared and enjoyed by the kids. My younger son started a year ago when he was turning 2 and since day one he enjoyed coming to the centre than being at home. I would recommend this centre to any families.
My son is in his 3rd year of attending Explore & Develop Norwest, 3 days a week, and absolutely loves it. He started at 1 1/2yrs old and will continue until ready for Kindergarten. After looking at 7 other centres in the Hills area, this one was a real stand-out, with facilities that are amazing both indoors and the newly renovated outdoor area with art studio, as well as a variety of nutritious meals and long-term teachers of all ages who really do care. He has learnt most of his skills here and continues to grow and develop through play and knowledge-based learning. This centre is a hidden gem!
My son started here when he was 1.5 Yrs and just graduated out. Our whole experience was wonderful. He loved going to "Baby School" everyday and made many good friends. We still meet up with the teachers who are ever so warm and friendly. My son learnt a lot and turned out to be a friendly well mannered confident boy when he started Kindergarten. The empathy and friendliness of the staff is amazing!!
Our daughter has been cared for by the wonderful team at Explore and Develop Norwest since she was 11 months old. I was very reluctant to place my baby into childcare as she was very attached and I wasn't sure how she (or I) would cope. We looked at many childcare centres in the area when it came time for me to return to work, and we even enrolled her in a different centre in Bella Vista. However, when we started the orientation process I just knew I couldn't leave my daughter there. We pulled her out and kept searching. From the moment we walked into Explore and Develop I knew it was the right place for us. The centre is clean and inviting and every single staff member you pass by greets you with a smile and hello. The centre's director, Marcelle, presented immediately as professional but also kind and engaging with our daughter, greeting her by name and chatting with her. The team in the Wallaby room (which is where the babies and very young toddlers are) were absolutely amazing in supporting my daughter's transition into care. For many days when she first started she was cuddled and held when she needed reassurance, sometimes napping in the arms or in the lap of one of the educators, Gradually and gently they supported my little girl to become comfortable napping in her cot and to become happy and excited about going to see her friends and teachers at "school". The quality of the food is fantastic with the varied and nutritious menu created by staff in the onsite food preparation area. I'm often jealous of the kids if I visit at lunchtime and see and smell what they are getting! The meals are generous and we note that often the daily record will show that our daughter has enjoyed 2 (and sometimes 3!) servings. Our daughter also had a food intolerance when she was very young and staff ensured that her dietary needs were accommodated. One of the big reasons we chose Explore and Develop was their clearly articulated and demonstrated commitment to supporting children's physical and mental development through free play and creative opportunities. The play areas are amazing, especially given the location of the centre. Marcelle constantly invests in the centre to renew and reinvigorate play areas so they remain exciting and challenging spaces for the children to learn, play and grow. The educators themselves are intelligent, skilled and very obviously dedicated to their work and to our kids. Most of all, they are openly caring and affectionate with the children, always modelling core values around empathy, sharing and respect for others. I cannot recommend this centre more highly and we are so very grateful that such high quality care is available for our most precious gift. Our daughter is now 3 1/2 years old and we very much hope we are lucky enough to stay with this centre until she starts school.
