As a parent I feel I am kept up to date on the daily activities as when I collect Javier there is a communication book with photos and details of all the fun the kids had throughout the day.  I am extremely happy with the way Javier has learnt so much since entering the kindy room and I am very confident he will enter school at a great rate along with other 4 and 5 years olds.”
