  • “Jayden seems to have enjoyed his first week at Mt Wellies. All the staff have been so welcoming and I love how they have already picked up on his little routines and habits. The caring nature of the staff has definitely made me feel at ease when leaving him this week.”

  • “We initially  moved Ayla to Mt Wellies due to some concerns with her previous daycare provider We were not sure if we had made the right decision, but after a few weeks at Mt Wellies we knew that we made the right choice.

    Not only was the Centre accommodating to fit our work schedules in order to get Ayla settled into her new environment, the team were friendly, caring and passionate in supporting us and our little girl.Very shortly into her time at Mt Wellies Ayla’s we noticed a marked increase in her speech capabilities and confidence in what she was saying, and we credit this to the Mt Wellies team.

    I would also like to say a big thank you to everyone for your support while Ayla had a full leg cast, not only did you allow us to come in and continue to play and learn when she was unable to walk, you have enabled her to continue to come to daycare and learn, grow and interact when she was able to move again.So a HUGE thanks to  everyone at Mt Wellies.”

  • “Isabella started at Mt. Wellies just before she was 1 year old and I was going back to work full time.  I felt secure and confident to go back to work because Isabella was so well looked after.

    She grows and learns new things every day.  I like your philosophy about self-learning and learning through adventures and discoveries.
    Isabella finds her individuality and community sense at the same time and this is seen in her attitude everyday.

    Your staff are very qualified and dedicated to communicate important things to us parents. I have gratitude to all your staff members as I can see how they love their work so much and are eager to provide excellence in early education to our children.

    When we are at work we know we are giving Isabella the best care she could have and it is wonderful to pick her up at the end of a long day and see how happy she is.”
