What families are saying about Gaven Early Learning Centre

My 2 boys have been at Gaven Early Learning Centre for coming up nearly 2 years and WOW what an experience we have had and incredible improvement in both my boys Learning and development but especially within my older boy. My children are 4 and 5 but my 5 year old literally could not sit still long enough to draw ANYTHING let alone know how to even hold a pen or pencil before we moved here. Now he can write his name, has an eager artistic streak which all of the educators are exploring with him and encouraging which is so beautiful to see. They are helping him learn however that looks to help his education and confidence. To the extreme of my son being very creative making a McDonald's at daycare so Karen (the director) went to a local McDonald's and explained how not only my child now but his whole class now have shown so much interest and would love some empty cups and happy meal boxes for imaginative play in their pretend maccas which they donated. They then got to go back to the same McDonald's to give the owner drawings to say thank you and got a cheeky happy meal compliments of gaven elc. Not too mention all the occasions they celebrate and cater for is incredible and always so special then to all the lovely teachers and centre with Easter and Christmas presents. This daycare is like a big beautiful family and we have loved being apart of this centre and family. I couldn't recommend Gaven Elc any higher then I have so if you're looking or thinking of sending your little one here I'd say do it It will be the best decision you make 🥰
