“Very caring, welcoming and approachable staff that are easy to communicate with. We are moving out of the area and I am still keeping Jordan at Penguin, because I am so happy with the centre. Staff are always happy to answer any questions or concern and they encourage learning and friendships. I really like the recent daily emails being received that include a photo and a description of what Jordan has done for the day. I also like how the centre provides a cake for the children’s birthdays, once again thank you for all the love and care the staff give to Jordan.”
“I would like to take this opportunity to provide some positive feedback in relation to the carers at Penguin Ravenhall. I have found that the carers in both Toddler 1 and Pre Kinder rooms have been fantastic in the way that they care and provide effective communication regarding Liam and Sofia’s development. Everyone at the centre is very friendly and is always there to assist with any enquiries I may have. Thank you and please keep up the great work!”
