“The staff are absolutely beautiful, the centre is so bright and new but it’s the familiarity Jasmine has already developed with St Therese primary school which she will attend next year that has been one of the biggest benefits…We feel very lucky to be one of the first families here and honestly couldn’t be happier”


“It’s affordable…the long day care hours are great…meals are provided and so I don’t have to worry about that…I can go to work and know that my child is well looked after.”


“We’re Christ centered.  We live in a society which is demanding on both parents…if the Church can fill a gap…to assist mum and dad help educate their child…Catholic education would be there the whole way through.  We’re staying all onsite, from the morning till the evening…we’re providing a Catholic community for all people, not just for Catholics.”
