“Stephen and I just wanted to let the educators in the Infant’s Room know how much of an amazing job they are doing. The observations and daily reflections on ‘Storypark’ are so informed and detailed. The work they have been doing with our child is showing through at home. We have noticed all the new words he is trying to say on a daily basis, and he is becoming so much more independent.”
– Catherine & Stephen Wallance, Infant Room’s Family
Richardson child care and education centre have been amazing by providing additional support for our family during a period of adjustment and change. A significant change in family structure can be a traumatic time for children and the extra care and attention given by the educators has made the transition easier for our family. The children love attending the centre and have formed genuine, meaningful relationships with the educators. During a time of additional stress, the staff have been wonderfully supportive and empathetic.
