    Hi

    I can't comment on the day care centres as I just don't know anything about them but if you would consider a home day care I can strongly recommend calling Kites Family Day Care. They have some amazing home day care mums in camira that my friends kids have gone to and my DD is starting at one later in the year.

    Just thought I would mention it.

    Good luck with your search :-)

    My dd goes to Kindy patch 2 near the uni. Kylie is the director and she is really hands on with all the kids. Nothing is ever too much trouble. When we started, dd and I were able to go together as many days as we liked so she could get used to it while I was with her. This didn't cost us a thing! We went for about a month before she started going alone.

    They are also renovating their outdoor play area which is already pretty good, but it's going to get even better.

    There have been very few staff turnover since we started this time last year.

    Pls pm if you are interested in this centre because they have a "refer a friend scheme" and the new family and referee get a week's free Kindy or something like that. I could refer you

    Yup I also recommend FDC. There are some great ones around. We had a dreadful experience with W.oodcrest Daycare.

    Ok cool well let me know how you go? If they call you back with a place and you end up taking it tell them that Nicole referred you and I can pm you my full details for the referral sheet would be awesome if we both got out of paying a week's fees!
