Our daughter has just started her third year at Hansen Street Children's Centre. During this time I have been pleased with the quality of care she has received. My daughter loves going to daycare and has developed strong bonds with all members of staff. Most days she doesn't want to leave. We are constantly amazed at her achievements and what she has learnt. The introduction of a fully qualified Kinder Teacher means we are offered additional programming in preparation for school. The play ground at Hansen Street is an amazing space for the children to play and explore like the old days. Definitely a must see! I would not hesitate recommending Hansen Street Children's Centre to anybody who wants the best start for their children.
I was over the moon when I found the Hansen Street Children’s Centre for my three year old son. It stands out from the other centres I have visited for so many reasons. The warmth of the staff is palpable when you walk through the door. This warmth is focused on the children but it is also exists between staff members which (in my opinion) is what enables them to work so incredibly well as a team. The smallest of details regarding my son’s development is constantly shared amongst staff members and fed back to me. Everyday I receive information relating to a specific conversation he has had or an activity he has taken part in. I always look forward to picking him up and talking to the staff.
As for the centre itself, it is beautifully and sensitively organised. Every nook and cranny has been carefully thought about to give a welcoming and homely feel. The delicious home-cooked lunches and snacks add to the atmosphere of home from home. There is always something new and stimulating for my son to interact with. I have always noted how clean and well looked after the equipment is. The jewel in the Centre’s crown is the magnificent garden at the back. I defy anyone not to fall in love with it and take delight in watching their child run about in the shade of the beautiful trees. After a day ‘at the office’, it is a magical oasis from which I have trouble extracting myself and my son.
Gus has been attending the babies room for the past 6 months and we are so pleased to have him in care at Hansen Street. The babies room is just gorgeous - beautifully furnished, clean, bright and airy. The staff at Hansen Street are just divine! The care our son receives is second to none and its as if they are an extension of our family. On the days where I drop him off, as soon as we get out of the car he starts flapping his legs in excitement. The staff are always pleased to see him and get smiles and cuddles all day long.
Every staff memeber there is so lovely, professional, warm and caring. It's easy to see that children are their passion. The meals are cooked on premises, with a wide variety of foods on offer to fill the little tummies. Furthermore, outside there is a large, sheltered and safe play area for the babies and children to enjoy.
I have no hesitation in recommending Hansen Street for providing excellence in long day care. We look forward to having Gus in your care for the years to come.
Rachel, Richard (and Gus)
