Love it!

Fantastic centre, loving teachers who provide our children with exceptional care. So pleased to have joined the Welles street family. Couldn’t be happier with our choice

Down hill fast

This centre used to have a good reputation but is now absolutely terrible. The new manager appears unqualified for the role, unable to have a conversation, and is never around. The teachers appear stressed and burnt out and the staff moral has changed dramatically since the new manager took over. There has been no consistency with staffing, there is a new face every day and the assigned teachers to the rooms always get swapped around.

I used to recommend this early years daycare to friends but now I’m ashamed at what it has become. It needs to be under new management pronto or the families are going to keep leaving. It’s a shame. There are some great teachers but you can tell they are not happy. If you’re in the central district I highly recommend you explore elsewhere. This is unsafe for our children
