I first enrolled my daughter at Leylands Learning Centre (LLC) when she was 2 years old, back in 2009. I enrolled my son in 2012 when he was 1 year old. I have attended and interviewed more than 10 child care centres in my area and my choice went to LLC. From the first phone call, not only was it very pleasant and inviting, once I entered the building I felt so happy that I made the right choice. It has met my expectations.
The centre is very clean, bright and well set up. The environment and facilities are excellent. They always provide the best for the children. There are lots of educational toys and learning activities at the centre, both indoors and outdoors. The outdoor playing area is supported by being “Sun Smart”, with nice shady areas. The outdoor equipment are great. The centre director and all the teachers are very friendly. They always greet each child by name and they look at each child as an individual, with their own strengths and needs.
Both of my kids have learned so much in the centre. From numbers, alphabet, to the solar system. One day my son came home and asked me a question: “Mommy, do you know what is the smallest planet in our solar system?” Before I can give him my answer, he told me with his smiley face, “It’s Pluto, Mommy. Miss Yosra taught me today”. My children were only around 3 years old when they both could proudly sing Advance Australia Fair. Now, my son can sing a few songs from The Wizard of Oz. He sings every day at home. They also learnt about positive manners and how to respect others. It is very amazing that they can start learning these from an early age. The day-care program is well organised and the curriculum is engaging. We can check on their daily program and provide our feedback.
There are many great things about LLC – the staff, the environment, the location (just minutes walk. from the station and plenty of street parking nearby). But mostly for me, I love the fact that I can call the centre at any time, ask any question, talk directly to the Director or teachers and we can provide our input on anything. I will never forget LLC and will be very happy to recommend it to anyone who requires day care.
