  • Nice things clients say about us

    • My little man commenced at Scallywags Childcare in January 2012- this was our first experience with a childcare centre, and from his first day, aged 11 months, I could not have been happier.

      My daughter commenced in 2014 at the age of 9 months – when it came to looking for a childcare centre for our little girl, there was no question as to where she would attend.

      The staff at the centre are highly professional. More importantly though, I feel that they deeply care for each child, and understand individual needs and personalities. My children have been in wonderful hands, everyday they have attended Scallywags, and I am confident they are receiving the right balance of fun and education when they are at the centre.

      I have seen many changes to the centre, in terms of updates to play equipment, an increase in the number and variety of extracurricular programs being run during the daytime and staff being open to new ideas to provide an exciting and engaging learning environment for the children. What I have found best as a mother though, is the low turnover in staff. The carers truly love what they do, and that is a testament to how Mark has run the centre.

      I would always recommend Scallywags to anyone looking for a trustworthy, caring childcare centre, who of course always acts with professionalism.

    • Over the 11 years that we have been a Scallywags parent, the standards that Mark and Glenda originally set in place for their business have shone through in all aspects of their childcare. Mark has managed to keep a quite stable senior staff over the years, which helps with continuity for the children and speaks to the supportive environment that he fosters.

      There has been a clear commitment to excellence with regular staff training and information provided for parents through newsletters and education evenings. Children are also directly taught age-appropriate issues such as hygiene, healthy eating, etc.

      Most of the families that we know have used more than one (in some instances, several) childcare options during their childrens’ early years. Having just finished our “childcare years” we realise that we were fortunate to be able to use the one childcare centre across so many years, for our boys.

      I would certainly recommend Scallywags Childcare to any prospective parent. It is so important to have that sense of security in those looking after your children, so that you can throw yourself into work without worry.

    • We have been with Scallywags Childcare Centre for over five years now. Mark, Lisa and the team do an amazing job ensuring that our kids are in a safe, nurturing and fun learning environment.

      All of the educators that have looked after our kids have been caring, attentive and approachable; as well as interested in our kids and their happiness during difficult times such as morning drop-offs.

      We’re really happy with the Scallywags team and I trust my kids are being well looked after while I’m working.
