What our families are saying about us

My little Miss has attended St James Lutheran Child Care Centre since she was one year old and next year she is off to Prep. We both have enjoyed the St James experience, finding all staff from the office staff through to the Co-ordinator very friendly, approachable and informative.

I feel comfortable that my little Miss is always getting the best care and the teachers seem to genuinely love the little people they care for each and everyday. I get progress reports each afternoon about what happened during the day not just in written form  but the teachers are always up for a chat and my little Miss and I will surely miss their friendship next year when she goes to Prep.

I could go on for days about this wonderful centre and I highly recommend it to anyone I meet with children or grandchildren looking for a care.- Tenneal Sinn

 

Selecting a Day Care for my son was really difficult. Like every other parent, I want the absolute best for my son. However, unlike the majority of parents, I go a bit over the top :) We looked at almost every Day Care between Logan and Wellington Point, which included multiple visits to the ones we liked. Not one even came close to St James. St James provides everything we were looking for. Caring, intelligent and nurturing staff, wonderful facilities, a strong sense of community and a personalised interest in my son with updates on his progress every week. My son loves attending St James and talks non stop about Miss Kathleen and Miss Zoe. I'm so grateful to have found St James! - Zeenet Scarborough

 

As parents, we entrust our greatest blessing to the staff at St James Lutheran Child Care. We have 4 children who have attended the centre and loved it very much.  Our youngest daughter attends one day a week at the moment and enjoys every moment of her time there. She cannot wait to go to “Kindy” each Thursday and play with her friends.  We are grateful for the loving care and guidance our children have all received from the staff. Lily, currently attends the centre and especially loves Miss Di who has been a constant at the centre for many many years. Di has been a teacher to all our children and they have all loved her. The teachers and director look at each child as individuals, with their own strengths and needs. “Our children have been blessed with awesome teachers”. Our children have learned so much and continue to share with us the great activities that go on each day at "Kindy!" Thank you to the staff at St James for an incredible early childhood program that engages and teaches throughout the whole day. We absolutely love the “What the Possums did today email”. We look forward to the photos and story of what the children did each day. What a wonderful idea - Michael and Wendy McMahon
