Would highly recommend Little Magpies Childcare Centre, my daughters in home carer finished late last year so I decided to leave finding a new day care until the beginning of the year. I'm glad I found Little Magpies, the staff have been so helpful and great at communicating how my daughter is going. There's never ending activities and wholesome meals. Thanks for everything.

Awesome environment for my son, his teachers go well above and beyond what I expect even to the point of a teacher using her own time to train and help with my autistic son. My son and I give a A+++++ rating to the Centre and staff. Dwayne

Thank you for all of the things you have done for my son over the past few years.You all have been there for him many times and shared with us many things that have happened. I know that my son takes with him many values and virtues fostered by Little Magpies staff that will support him through the next few years. Many, many thanks.

I am super, super stoked with how easy the whole process has been dealing with Little Magpies Home Based. Annie has been so accommodating and lovely towards us! I even cried the first time I spoke to her because I was so overwhelmed with choices of childcare providers and she quickly made me feel as though we had made the right decision. I have nothing but amazing things to say about Annie, I can call her anytime and she is so quick to answer any of my questions, help with WINZ applications, come to my house or work to do paperwork! She is nothing short of a superstar!
