“Samarah needed to be in care for 8.5 hours per day, and the homely personal environment was perfect for her. Emma said ” She strived in this environment; she continued to develop her motor skills, language skills and experience new, exciting, enriching activities. All the activities and experiences offered at day-care were offered by our educator, and being in the home environment provided a stable, safe place for our child to learn. I have found the whole time my child was with Childsplay a wonderful experience. From the beginning and the process of really listening to me, to the day to day care of my child, they have been a supportive, caring, personal organization.”

“We would like to say thank you for all you have done for Emily while she was with Childsplay. It has been great getting feedback from Linda about Emily’s learning and the learning journals are a great record to have of her milestones/learning experiences – Emily looks at hers all the time. We were lucky with both Melinda, and then later Linda looking after Emily as both are great people that welcomed Emily into their families and I’m sure we will have on going contact with them.”

“This is a great service for families to use. Great to have one on one for the children as the child feels more accepted because they are with the same educator. We are expecting another child soon and we will use the service again. Job well done Michelle she is such an awesome lady. Jack just loved his time with her. Thanks.”

“I highly recommend childsplay Homebased. Based on the two educators I had and my contact with their visiting teacher I found the service exceptional. With having a child under one when I returned to work I found the environment safe and nurturing. It was nice to know he wasn’t going to get lost in the crowded environment of an early childhood centre. It gave Caleb the chance to find himself, build his self esteem and confidence. Communication with his educators was excellent; they both met his needs and treated him as part of their family. Thank you Nicki, Linda, Anoushka and Di. You guys have helped give Caleb a great start to his educational journey.”

“My son was cared for by a childsplay educator from the age of two years through to five years. I had total trust in my educator, she provided a safe and happy home away from home. There were always interesting activities on the go from art work to extra curriculum like swimming or outings such as to the library, parks etc. I believe our son was really well prepared as part of the educational programme to start school. We couldn’t recommend Childsplay more highly, thank you.”

Jane (parent)

“As a grandmother unexpectedly landed with the full time care of 2 year old twins, I was very grateful for the care and support I received from Childsplay. It was great to have someone impartial and objective visiting regularly with whom I could discuss the girls development and needs. This is a great service for parents and or educators as well as for the children.”

Rio (grandparent)

“Our educator Jo provided a safe, kind, happy and calm environment for our child. She provided a range of experiences for the children and we felt informed at all times. Jo provided us with a wonderful book of her learning experiences while in care. We would recommend to other families seeking quality care.”
