"Our daughter Sienna has been attending ABC Ascot for 6 months! Since attending the centre we have seen such positive changes in her development and personal growth and her personality is blossoming every week. Sending Sienna to ABC Ascot has been one of the best decisions we have made as parents. The staff are just wonderful and treat Sienna with so much love and respect and she just adores all her teachers and friends she has made at the centre. We can't speak more highly of this centre and it's such a lovely feeling dropping her off in the morning and knowing she is in the best possible care. We can't thank you enough." - September 2013
"My daughter has been at ABC Ascot since she was 3 months old (nearly 8 months ago) and during that time she has positively flourished. She has learnt so many valuable skills and is nearly walking and talking already! But the best thing is that every time I drop her off or pick her up from the centre she is smiling – because it’s a place she associates with fun and happiness. I also love ABC because in addition to feeling confident that she’s safe and secure there, I like how well all the teachers and staff communicate with us parents – they make us feel like they love our children almost as much as we do!" - September 2013
"I can not speak highly enough of the teachers at ABC Ascot Ave. Mihiri has been the remaining constant in our girls lives. Despite the many changes that we've seen at the centre and staff that have moved on Mihiri has been amazing. She is amazing with the children and we are so grateful to have had someone so caring and dedicated in our girls lives. The trust and rapport we have with Mihiri is wonderful and she does a fantastic job in her role as teacher and when she has in charge responsibilities. She has always been open and forthcoming with communication and it has made such a difference to our daycare experience. Claire has also done an amazing job, she is just such a lovely person to deal with and both of the girls adore her. More recently with Gail joining the team in the over 2's room - what an amazing lady! She had such a huge influence on Eva's life - we are still hearing 'Gail tales'. Gail has certainly influenced our daughter to sound wiser beyond her years - I'm often told by Eva to drink more water or I'll get dehydrated.... Or conversations that start with 'Gail says...' - its great to hear. Gail is such a wonderful teacher who is so thoughtful to each child's individual needs and spirit. With her fairy dust close at hand her magic way with children has been so lovely to see and has had such a hugely positive impact. Celine in the baby room has been so fabulous. Maré absolutely adores her - as do we, and she has made the transition to daycare for her a seamless one. Maré has multiple allergies coupled with hay-fever that as parents did make us initially nervous about daycare. Celine was so great from Maré's first daycare visit and ensures she eats an appropriate and varied diet (Celine loves to get loads of protein into her!) and it is so comforting to know that someone so dedicated and caring is looking after her. To see Maré almost fly into Celine's arms when she gets to daycare and then be calling 'bye bye' and waving as she leaves is really touching. I just wanted to share with you what a great team of teachers they are and how as parents we have had no reservations about recommending the centre and the care delivered by them." - March 2013
