Our Staff

[cws-row cols=1 id=”cols1″][col span=12][cws-widget type=text title=””]

Our staff are happy to work alongside parents/guardians in order to ensure your child is reaching their maximum potential in all areas of their development including children’s transition to toilet training, nappy changing facilities are available. At Happy Feet we understand the importance of smooth transitions and so we welcome parents/guardians to leave their child in our service for short periods of time one week before your child starts with us. This settling in period allows you and your child to familiarise yourselves with the playschool, our staff and the children. The settling in period is at your convenience before the commencement date and is offered free of charge. In our opinion quality childcare and early education are both critically important in early childhood and so we strive to provide both in a fun, safe and stimulating environment.
