"Both my sons have attended The Oak Seed from 2 years of age, and I couldn't be happier with the learning experience both of them received. I saw improvements in many areas including speech, gross and fine motor skills, confidence and their interactions with their peers. The school readiness my eldest son received was of the highest standard, and he had the best start to kindergarten. I also love the culture and friendly environment of the centre. I would highly recommend The Oak Seed to any friends and family who are considering sending their children to preschool"
"The oak seed learning centre has been the first and only centre we have sent our child to, we are pleased with how our son has developed as a person and how much he has learnt over the years. We have been impressed with all the educators at the centre since our son started in 2015. The first few weeks were hard at drop off but over time it became easier and the teachers always reassured us that he was ok. Now he doesn't want to come home most days. The programs at this centre have helped our son in all aspects of his early stages of learning. He has thrived academically and we can't thank the teachers enough for the support and love they have given our son. Our son has benefited from the centre in more ways we thought possible, from his social skills, food choices, fine and gross motor skills, shapes, colours, reading and writing. The centre is always introducing new and exciting things and is always improving on things that help the children with play and learning. The educators are friendly and so easy to approach if there is ever an issue. Things are addressed in an appropriate and mature manner. As parents this makes us feel comfortable in knowing our son is always happy and safe when at school in the care of others. We could not recommend the centre more then we already do. Keep up the great work ladies."
The Oak Seed is an excellent centre for early learning and development! The programs which are developed and run for the children follow their interests and personal pursuits and therefore expose the children to a wide array of learning topics while still focussing on the very important aspects of social skill development, activity and exploration. The staff are incredible and do an amazing job caring for our children during a very important stage of their lives. There is excellent communication with parents and you get a strong sense that the staff really know your child and their needs. Very happy with The Oak Seed!”
Having moved up from Sydney, we knew nothing of the centres around town. So many people raved about Oak Seed, and I was impressed when we inspected the premises, so as soon as there was a vacancy we pounced! As an educator myself, and a parent that has used multiple centres whilst raising my three girls, I can honestly say this was by far the best! I highly recommend it. The staff are warm and friendly and the education and care provided is exceptional. Thank you.
"We first went to Oak seed just before my eldest daughter turned 2, just for a visit to suss out the whole daycare scene. Straight away you feel a calmness when you enter the centre and even though there are 28 kids between 2 and 5 it seemed really relaxed and the kids were having fun. Sasha straight away started playing in the sandpit and I was able to chat to the teachers at the centre. I was informed that I should probably put my name down at others centres just incase they can't fit her in since they had recently won an award and had a waiting list, but I already knew I wanted that centre and didn't even look at any others. Luckily for me they were able to accommodate the days I needed and as soon as Sasha turned 2 she started in the gumnut room with Linda. Linda has such a calm and patient nature and is well suited to this group. 20 months after Sasha started my second daughter started and it was a very easy transition with both girls loving their days at daycare. We have never had any dramas at Oakseed finding the staff very friendly and approachable. We have spent 5 years dealing with this centre and in that time it has changed ownership but the educators have remained unchanged and the kids have just love it. They come home with the most interesting facts and the kids lead the learning. We have missed not going to Oakseed and we are very grateful for the amazing start both girls have had to their education. Thank you!!
