Reviews and Testimonials
See what some of our parents say about our centre:
“My gorgeous three year old son attends Main Road East Early Learning Centre in St Albans. He has developed great social skills and looks forward to coming to his Pre- Kinder room. He has made many friends and enjoys the activities that are set up. It is great having a service that caters for all his meals while he is there, and also knowing that there is a 4-5 Kinder Funding program at the service that he can attend very soon.”
“It is a pleasure taking my son to your centre, he enjoys the time he spends there. One of the main reasons I brought my son to the centre is to learn english. His english, social skills and general communication improved greatly due to the fantastic work of the staff. I would recommend this centre to any parents. Keep up the good work.”
“Great learning centre. My 6 year old girl has been here for the past 2 years and I believe that the careers and teachers have been fantastic”
