Learning Together Every Day
I have no family in SA to rely on and sending my child to child care was the most daunting experience for a 1st time Mum. My son was 6mths old when he started coming to child care 3 days per fortnight, and they made us feel so welcome and comfortable.
My son adjusted very easily, better than I did, I cried every day I left him for weeks. He on the other hand was fine.
I chose this centre as it was close to work so I could be close to him if he needed me and because there was a junior at my work who went there when she was little and had great memories of her time there.
All the staff at the centre make you feel like you belong to a great community and are understanding to all of the children’s needs and requirements.
I n my opinion you would be making a great choice by sending your child here.
Without their encouragement, support and care for our family, as well as our daughter, I’m not sure the transition would have been as smooth. They let me call during the day to check in on how she was doing (something I still do occasionally with our second daughter, even though she is in the Kindy room!!) and always take the time to let me know they are going!
I can only offer praise to all the staff of SCCC. They go above and beyond what your expectations are, they care for the children as if they are their own and then somehow they also manage to juggle all the legal / government & individual family requirements as well!
We moved Harry here from another centre because we were looking for somewhere he would feel at home, be treated as an individual, and be challenged. All of these things happen at Seaton.
We have been extremely happy with how all of the staff work together as a team. Even staff are replacement staff obviously know the children well and are part of the overall team.
A fabulous place to have your children, I would thoroughly recommend Seaton to any parent.
We have always found staff warm & welcoming, and also fun at times! Sometimes because we both work full time, we have found it very difficult to follow the strict hygiene / health rules – when we must come and pick up a child in the middle of the arvo – but then we quickly realised these high standards were for the best of everyone!!
Our son is happy, loved, cared for and learning every day. What a pleasure to have SCCC as our extended family.
We only put our daughter’s name down where we had personal recommendations. We had offers form 2 other centres, both excellent, but we stayed with Seaton. We are absolutely confident that our daughter benefits from being there.
We have always felt that we can ask questions, call at any time and do not feel that we’re being difficult!
I was unsure about using childcare, but Seaton has helped me understand that it can be a very positive and valuable experience.
The centre allowed us to stick to our parenting plan by not dictating to us what nappies we were to use. Other centres we looked at were not prepared to work with us on our decision to use cloth nappies.
We were told our child could use a cloth nappy to go home in only, she had to use disposables, at Seaton both our girls have used cloth nappies for the whole day.
We felt like we could still control / have input into our daughters’ upbringing whilst in care. This was an important point of difference for us.
Jodie (Assistant Director) showed me around casually and my girls loved it straight away. 3 years have passed; Jordan went through the Kindy room and is now at school, Emma went through the Toddler and Kindy room, she starts school soon.
This is a sad transition as Emma my youngest and loves childcare. She prefers childcare instead of preschool and is going to miss the friends she has made.
I am going to miss it too. The saddest thing about this chapter is that the carers are great, it’s a real family centre always adjusting to the families’ needs and requirements with my job now, it’s always good to know that Seaton Community Childrens Centre is there to cater for split seconds adjusting of days and times for Emma this is an amazing God send.
I am so glad that my children have such a positive environment to play learn and grow and I know that the staff are doing a great job by the way my child talks about his day when he arrives home.
His carers to him are like extensions of his family, they make him feel safe and cared for, and I know they are helping him develop the social skills and habits that will prepare him for his future schooling.
