‘My son started this year at MCEEC and i could not be happier.

He loves going and the carers go above and beyond, they are also extremely conscious of carer to children ratio which is fantastic as no child is ever left out or not being watched.

He is extremely well looked after with all his needs and wants catered for. Chef cooked nutritious meals, learning experiences catered just to him as well as group adventurous learning programming and exploration challenging him every day he is there. I get monthly learning stories sent to me and there is always something happening at the centre to include my family in the centre and the centres community.
We love it at MCEEC.’

‘I just want to thank you and all the educators in MCEEC for the incredible environment you provide for the children. The effort put in does not go unnoticed. My daughter has always been treated with kindness and respect and has really grown as a young lady. So thank you so much for the experiences she has had in MCEEC.’

‘Both my children have attended MCEEC and they absolutely love it. The support the staff have shown my son who has special needs is amazing and makes it easy for me as I know he is in great hands. The staff ensure they implement all his programs to assist him in his development. Couldn’t have asked for a better group to care for my children while I’m at work.’

‘Highly Recommend! When I talk to other parents about their day care, none come close to the professionalism, attention to detail and excellent care at MCEEC!

I love the open playground where the older kids are able to teach and care for the little ones and the younger children learn from their peers. A cook makes the kids yummy meals. The educators and director go above and beyond to make sure my children have access to the best experiences and environment for learning and play. Staff provide ideas and activities that can be continued at home, which helps me immensely!’

‘Our son has attended Maryland Care & Early Education from the age of 6months, he is now 5. We have had a delightful experience with all the staff in each of the 3 rooms the past 5 years, they are all so caring & it is so evident that they have a real passion for what they do. The centre has allowed our son to develop great fundamental life skills & the resources available are all well maintained.

We are always kept up to date with his learning outcomes & also well informed via regular emails & daily communication clips. The kitchen menu is balanced & it’s such a stress free start to the day not worrying about preparing meals, we’ve found our fussy eater actually eats more in the group environment than he would at home!

We’ve not had any issues with accounts & have always found the girls in the office to be very helpful & informative with regards to upcoming events & even illness notifications.

We will be extremely sad when we have to head off to big school, we will miss the friendly faces of everyone there.’

‘It’s the staff that make this such a beautiful childcare centre. Harrison has been attending the school for 2.5 years and the girls have always taken the time to get to know him, learn what works for him. This was especially comforting in the early days with the emotional drop offs. They have given him the comfort and support that he needed to grow and thrive and now we see him comfortable and confident in the school and with his friends. At pickup time the girls always have a little snippet to recall from the day, something important or funny that Harrison did or said, which is always so nice to hear.’
