Today was the last day of my youngest daughter at Kidiwise! What a journey my 2 children have gone through. Both started around 1 and went right through. Supportive teachers and amazing role models. Highly recommend this centre to anyone who would like their children treated in a way you treat your own. We are going to miss you guys!!!!
Caroline Johnston - May 2018
Kidiwise is a fantastic preschool, my daughters been going a year almost now and is so happy to attend even her big 10 hour days. She loves all the staff, animals, activities, walks, stories, songs etc etc , and of course making friends. Definitely somewhere I'd recommend.
Caroline Woodruff - March 2018
An amazing centre with an amazing group of educators that not only build a bond with your child but they build relationships with families too. He wont be leaving until he has to go to school.
Jackie Jenkins - December 2017
My son attended Kidiwise for the last 2.5 years. We loved its bush setting, outdoors focus, flexible hours, separate age group rooms, and the nurturing warmth of its staff. Specifically, thank you so much Anna, Bridget and Courtney, for all the supportive chats.
