What a wonderful community to uncover - children, staff and parents included! We couldn't be more thrilled with the experience Flynn is having this year at MPC. My sometimes reserved little man walked in and hasn't looked back once! The stories and songs he brings home, the friendships he's building, the space he gets to play in and the joy of learning that his teachers are inspiring - just warm my heart. Before and after kindy care and consistent days means he hasn't had to miss out on this great experience. Childcare has been great to our children but kindy has taken it up another notch - which is a reflection of the outstanding commitment and dedication from the staff. Kelly Chapman (2016, 2017 Parent)
Our family has had the great privilege of being part of the MPC community for the last three years. Our children initially attended long day care, but when our son was identified as having additional needs, his paediatrician recommended that we looked at enrolling him in a kindy.Enrolling him at MPC was the best decision we could have made. Our son thrived in the nurturing and natural environment at MPC, and the organisation of the space and daily routines provided a stable framework in which he could engage and enjoy his kindy experience. The compassion, understanding and support of the teachers and staff made an immeasurable difference to his preparation for school. The teachers provided valuable insights, open and honest feedback and encouragement throughout the year, which gave us additional strategies and tools to support our son at home.Our daughter has now also attended, and she has approached each day at MPC with excitement and enthusiasm. Her teachers have encouraged her to embrace every opportunity to play, create, interact and explore, and this has allowed her to develop into a resilient and independent learner. She is leaving MPC exited and prepared to attend school, which brings me great joy. Thank you for providing our family with many treasured memories of our time here.

I was initially attracted to MPC because of the extensive natural play spaces and focus on outdoor play. I have been pleased with the care and dedication the teachers and staff have shown to our daughter's education and wellbeing. I know she feels that she is a part of the MPC community, and we are only sorry that she can't attend MPC again next year! Kellie Lush (2014 parent)
We moved our first daughter from a daycare facility to Mitchelton Preschool Centre for her kindy year, as we feel there is a big difference between "doing" kindy and being a kindy. We plan to do the same for all of our children.
|I cannot express how much I value the time my child has spent at Mitchelton Pre-Schooling Centre. He has grown to become a more confident and independent individual and I believe this is a direct result of the approach the Centre, teachers and staff take in providing a play-based curriculum in a creative and caring learning environment. An environment where my child was encouraged to engage, interact and explore. It brings me great joy to hear him express his excitement at attending school next year; and knowing that the experiences he has had at MPC have made him all the more ready for the challenges ahead.

I thoroughly enjoy being a part of Mitchelton Pre-schooling Centre. I love that my children are valued, listened to and encouraged to express their ideas and plans. I really appreciate the experience and quality of the staff, and the amazing learning environment that they provide. This stimulating environment encourages the children to interact positively and work together to solve problems, while encouraging their independence. My children have gained so much through their experiences at MPC and I believe that this sets them up for a positive start to their life of learning. - Meredith Waghorn (2010, 2011, 2013, 2014 parent)
The environment which the teaching staff create for the children is one of possibility and wonderment. It allows them to learn, think creatively, challenge themselves and develop a whole range of skills all whilst they play. - DAVE FOSTER
We think MPC is a wonderful and inspiring place for the children to begin their "formal education". The focus is always on the children. Everything is turned into a learning experience. It has been great for our family to have spent 5 years here! - KERRY BRYANT
