Love the family feel!

Love this preschool for our two daughters. They have settled in so well and love going there - the teachers and children are like a second family!

We chose The Learning Tree for our son as we thought it was the best fit for him and us. We looked at many of the other preschools in the area but this stood out to us as it was smaller than the others and we were impressed with everything they offered. Our boy is quite shy and when we popped in to look around, he went straight off to explore (which he hadn’t done at any other centre!) We were quite surprised and from there it was all go for us! We have been here for 8 months and are so pleased with how settled and confident he is becoming. I am due for my second baby in November and when the time comes, we will sending her to their nursery as well.

Best preschool!!

When the preschool let us know about putting reviews on here, I didnt hesitate to jump on to share our praises. We have always loved the centre and been here for 5 years as we have our third child attending now. It’s a really great environment and the family that own it (and also work there) make you feel like part of the family. We have had a few challenges, especially around covid19 and they have been so supportive, helping ease some of the troubles we have had. I couldnt think of a better preschool to nurture our children during this important time in their lives. They only live these early years once so we are happy to give them their best start at Halswell Learning Tree!

Love working here

I love being on the staff here. It is a small family run centre and you are really made to feel like part of the family! Owners are so lovely and go well above and beyond for their staff. Really take the time to listen and happy to receive feedback and make changes as needed based on our ideas. Staff are so friendly and flexible - best work place I have worked in :) Will be here forever!

Such a great centre

So many fantastic opportunities offered for the children attending here. My children love outdoors and messy play and they were always able to do so much of this.

Such a family feel!!

Small family owned centre. Staff are so lovely and friendly and they all definitely go above and beyond making you feel like a member of their family!!! My child loved being there and made some really good friends. I loved the spontaneous excursions they would go on and knew my baby was in amazing, quality care! Large outdoor areas. Would highly recommend!!
