“Winterwood Child Care Centre (previously Elizabeth Park Child Care Centre) has been a home away from home for our son. The moment I toured the facilities, I knew this place was special. From the kind and nurturing staff, the thoughtful layout of each playroom, the compassionate and intelligent instruction, and the ways in which parents feel included in the everyday play and fun — all make Global Child Care the perfect fit for us.” Maria, Andrew, & Kallum


"When we began the search for a childcare centre we were nervous about leaving our son with anyone for an entire day without knowing them. After visiting multiple centres, they all seemed to offer the same acceptable service. It wasn't until we met with Cheryl and the baby program at Elizabeth Park Child Care Centre that we realized this was how a centre should truly be run. Leaving William with the team at Elizabeth Park is like leaving him with a trusted relative. The staff are caring and kind and always go the extra mile when it comes to meeting our son's needs and telling us about his day. We are so happy that the move to Winterwood is still so close to us - even if it weren't, we would find a way to keep William here. The team is unbelievably supportive. We could not ask for better care for our son."
