My first contact with KAZ Possums was a phone call to owner Peter in search of a placement for my daughter. His friendly professionalism gave me immediate confidence. This confidence continued and grew as I met Leah (Office Manager) and all of the staff.
As a parent, I can clearly see the passion and dedication of the staff and owners at this center. The activities and resources provided for the children are outstanding (Helen is giving Emma Wiggle a run for her money!) My daughter enjoys herself so much she asks us if she can go to "school" on the weekends!
My daughter transitioned to this center seamlessly and the enrollment process and administration was smooth ... allowing this mum who was returning to full-time work for the first time in 7 years a stress free experience. I cannot recommend this center more highly.
My son started at Kaz Possums in early 2019 and I found that the settling in process with him a breeze. He enjoys going to class in the morning and he loves his new found friends and teachers. Each day there is a write up of their daily activities and this serves as a good discussion starting point for our family. We ask how was your day and what did you do? It encourages him to recall the days events. Almost every month there is an incursion and the kids really look forward to the new activities. I really recommend your child join and enjoy Kaz Possums!
