We moved our 2 toddlers here after we moved to the area and are very happy with the center.Everyone is so friendly and the staff genuinely care for our kids - there are always new activities to do each day and it never looks boring or like they are simply being watched while they entertain themselves like in some other daycares.There is plenty of space both inside and outdoors and they provide all meals and nappies too.We’ve only ever had one small issue and it was rectified immediately.There is another ELC being built even closer to us but we are happy to leave the kids here as they love going and we 100% trust they are being looked after properly.

I recently finished 240 hours of placement for Diploma level at Doolandella Early Learning.Myself being a mature aged student with experience of raising my own children who are now grown,I founded all the staff nurturing, friendly and very professional. I loved observing the children's learning experiences, Thier friendships and interactions in the early years. I'm impressed how the staff know all the names and characteristics of each of the children.The centre was always clean and tidy with a brand new updated outdoor learning experience for all aged groups which made my own learning experience easier and enjoyable.

My child has been at this centre for about a year now and I've had a good experience. Communication is getting better which is great. Staff are friendly and my child is excited to attend every day.

I enrolled both my children here. One has moved on to Prep and there is nothing I can fault with the dedication, care and support he received during his time at Doolandella. The educators really invested time & effort in getting him ready for Prep. My second child has been enrolled since June. She has adapted well and is learning a lot. The daily class time updates show that she is getting ample time to learn as well as interaction with class friends and general playtime.
