I have used Shaw Street Children’s Centre for just over 3 years, and I cannot praise manager Leonie and her staff enough, for caring for my two boys when I returned to the workforce.  Both boys were approx. 12 months old when I first left them in the care for three days a week.  I found that communication of staff was excellent, and I was kept well informed of what the boys had done during their day.  Shaw Street is an inviting, warm and homely environment, the staff are friendly, the number of children is small, the kids get to do great crafts and activities, and they have a fantastic backyard playground to explore – complete with a bike track!  The staff at Shaw Street Children’s Centre have been very caring and supportive of both my children and myself, and I have always felt confident that the boys would be well cared for – both physically and emotionally.  My children have both enjoyed their many experiences at Shaw Street, and have made some great friends.  I would have no hesitation recommending the centre.


This centre has a warm, friendly atmosphere which children and parents find welcoming and nurturing. It is a family grouped centre with excellent facilities such as a sensory garden and extensive outdoor play equipment. I would without reservation recommend the centre to you given the excellent staff, accessible location and high standards of learning activities.
