Creche Customer Testimonials

" The creche at Waves offers such a warm and supportive environment and the staff have nurtured my daughter through some very challenging times and many milestones over 2 years. My daughter has just started 3 year old kinder and the teachers have commented on how confident and advanced she is, which I beleive is partly due to her attendance to the creche at Waves. My daughter loves going each week and I feel extremely greatful to the staff for all they do for her" - Rebecca

" I have found my daughters confidence has increased immensely since she started attending the creche at Waves and is preparing her for when she starts at childcare soon. I find the casual occasional care a huge bonus for last minute care or for when I need to get to appointments. My daughter loves attending and the staff are amazing" - Juli

"We have used the creche facility at Waves for over 3 years. The ladies are fabulous and I love that I can go get my hair done or shopping and know my daughter loves spending time there. In fact all through 2020, all my daughter kept asking for was when she could go back to creche!" -Rennee
