    I missed out on guppies which i wasn't very happy about.

    I've heard the centre is great.

    I have heard some bad things on Hamilton Road but nothing on nurseryland.

    Another one to consider is Chatterbox at aspley if you're near that way

    I have heard and seen and dealt first hand with Nurseryland at Stafford. NOT GOOD at all. The staff and the management leave a very lot to desire. I would say a very big NO to being at any NurseryLand centre.Drive a few miles further if you have to, be a much better choice.

    I can't go into it fully as I am unsure of who is lurking, but it wasn't a postive experience.

    Default Definitely would not recommend GUPPY'S

    I have been an employee for guppy's and it is not about providing exceptional childcare at all. The owners only care about $$$$ they never buy resources, they don't go by ratio at all most rooms are over ratio EVERY day and if you say as a staff member you want extra staff they treat you as if you are incapable of doing your job. Having 10 babies to 2 educators isn't right at all, that is NOT providing exceptional childcare. They have young teenage girls as group leaders who have no idea what they are doing!! They treat their staff members disgusting and have no interest in helping give young children a great start to life!!!

    NurseryLand at Stafford - have not heard good things at all. Avenues at McDowall is good.
