Dear Gumnuts Educators and EK Directors
I just wanted to write to you to thank you all so much for making the last few months of 2020 such a great time for Frankie in the gumnuts room. Thank you for including her and helping her along the way. Special thanks to Olivia and Beth for really going the extra mile and being by Frankie’s side and supporting her and being so eager to fill me in on Frankie’s day at pickup time. Her time in the gumnuts room has had such a positive impact on her growth and development.
She absolutely loves to come to Erina Kindy and she loves the gumnuts room and all her friends and educators.
Looking forward to seeing you again in 2021. Hope you all have a great Xmas break and hoping 2021 is a much better year for all!

"My son is new to the centre. We are so fortunate to have beautiful educators in the baby room. He is so happy and comfortable in the room. It is comforting to know that we are leaving him in the care of such lovely teachers. Thank you all for everything that you do."
Thanks MelS Biddle
I think you are all doing an amazing job of looking after us families.
We are very lucky to have you all and I am very grateful.
My children have been attending Erina Kindergarten since 2010 and I cannot fault the staff or management...especially all the wonderful new additions that Veronica and Matt have done to the centre. Outstanding.

My daughter absolutely loves it here! All the educators are amazing, kind hearted and FUN. The set up, routines and structure is brilliant. My daughter is 16 months going on 16, she’s learnt so much from this kindy. Today she didn’t want to leave!J Bradney
We would like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to your staff who have cared for and taught Genevieve over the years.

Thank you SO much Tash!! We can not say how happy we are with Rory’s development updates and with you all encouraging him so much. It’s so nice to see him thriving there and we really do appreciate all the time taken to provide these posts.Dani
I hope you are well.I wanted to email you and pass on some positive feedback about all the educators involved in my son Leonardo's care.
We have been with the centre for about a year and have been so happy with the experience. We have confidence in all the educators we have met and Leo is thriving.
Please pass on our positive reflections to the team.
Hello Erina kindergarten,
I have my son Huxley Atchison in the bush babies room, he has been there for four weeks now.
I am writing to commend your staff on their hard work, particularly Maddison Malone & Kiera. Putting Huxley into your school was the most heart-wrenching experience I have even had to go through. Until I got to see and know Miss Maddy and Miss Keira better, that was when I started to feel a lot more confident about my decision to put Huxley in your school. I don’t get to pick Hux up a lot of the time as I work late, but every time one of my family members pick him up they always have something so amazing to say about these two ladies! I can see the true love and care these two ladies have for my boy, and it is with that, that I will stay loyal to Erina kindergarten with future little Huxleys to come. I do hope that the girls are somehow appreciated for this.
Thank you so much!
I just wanted to say how happy we were with the Joeys room this year. Our daughter had such a great year with fantastic teachers. I just wanted to give some feedback on the teachers as they really deserve to be recognised for all that they have done.
Miss Nichol is such an energetic teacher and is such a good communicator with parents. Every afternoon when I arrive to pick Macey up, she always greets me with enthusiasm and always fills me in on what Macey has done in the day. We have had Miss Nichol for a few years now and truly love having her as a teacher for our children .
We have also had Miss Ellie as a teacher for a few years as well. Miss Ellie is such a warm and caring teacher and has a very special rapport with Macey. She is just so friendly and happy and Macey always talks about her and what they did together at school. Miss Ellie also greets me in the afternoon and gives me an update on the day. Macey will miss having her as a teacher next year.
Mr Joel has had a huge impact on Macey this year. He just seems to be a real natural with the children and from what I see and hear, they just love him. Macey has taken a very big liking to Mr Joel, especially with his fun magic tricks and fun activities he does with them. He is so calm and patient and most importantly, fun. He has been truly amazing and I would love if all of my children to have a teacher like him every year. He just has that special something that the kids adore.
Thank you again
I just wanted to say thank you for providing information regarding the room routines at Erina kindergarten. I am a Primary Teacher and I really enjoyed reading how the center balanced play and intentional learning. The programs look great. Our boy, Taj, loves EK and we’ve recommended it to a lot of friends and family.
I would just like to acknowledge Miss Jess and the staff in the snugglepots room for the extra care they have been taking of my daughter Emilie over the last couple of months. Em was struggling to settle back into kindy after we came back from a few months away on holidays.
After discussing my concerns with a number of the staff, Miss Jess took it upon herself to upload additional photos / stories of Em on storypark each time she attended to help us see what Em was up to. This seemingly small gesture went a long way in stimulating conversation at home and helped us to encourage the aspects of play she enjoys most at school. The staff have also been helping Em in fostering new friendships since her little friend Ella moved up to the Gumnuts room.
It is nice to know that our kids have been well looked after through your centre. It is also refreshing to see that parental concerns are taken seriously - no matter how trivial they may appear to be. The extra effort taken with Emilie has made a significant difference to her life and she is much happier in herself.
Please feel free to pass my compliments on to the directors, snugglepots staff and the owners.
Nichol and the other the teachers at Erina Kindergarten have an amazing influence on Evie during her journey at Erina Kindergarten and our discovery. Nicol has had such a profound influence on Evie’s future. Evie would be a different child now and not excelling in so many areas at school without Nichol and the other caring staffs at Erina Kindergarten.Leigh
Erina Kindergarten has been absolutely incredibly amazing and we have been so happy there the last few years. Thank you for everything the teachers have done for Ziah & Ayla. Louise
In April of this year, I was searching for a school for my son. I was so happy when I found your school, the size alone amazed me as well as your equipment and colour everywhere.
Then I had the pleasure of meeting your lovely staff. Miss Ash with that beautiful bubbly personality greeted me and gave me a tour and made me feel at ease.
You have provided parents with such a great school with size, educational programs (exceeding national standards), great equipment and sitting areas.
The thing that means most to me is that my child was in a loving and nurturing environment and you had provided that.
I would love to give a massive thank you to Miss Ash, Miss Julie, Miss Tiarn, Miss Hannah, Miss Vanessa and the lovely women in the office. These teachers have been so supportive and comforting. It’s teachers like them that make a school as wonderful as yours.
Thank you for the wonderful experience, I would highly recommend your school to anyone.Nicole
Over the past 5 years, my family and I have moved several times with the boys going to several preschools and I have to say that Erina Kindergarten is one of the best! So i thank you for the excellent centre that you are and the quality care that you provide.Bianca
Can I just pass on how beautiful the grounds are looking at Erina Kindergarten. Every time we arrive, they are just lovely. We have been so happy since we changed over last year. It really is an excellent pre-school. Thanks, Nat
We will always be grateful for the positive influence and involvement the educators at Erina Kindergarten have had on the important early learning years of our children's lives.The Scully's
Our children have been going to Erina Kindergarten for many years, they love it and so do we.
The educators are fantastic and they show so much care and compassion for the children.
The new owners have made so may positive changes to the centre, a fantastic healthy menu ( I want to go just so i can eat there) and a natural garden and play equipment, along with many other changes.Erina Kindergarten Parent

You guys are truly amazing! Always improving, putting families first. Such a fabulous centre and amazing staff xErina Kindergarten Parent
Our son Keaton adores the Bush Babies team, and we will be excited to return with both of our children when spots come up later.
May I please also commend the room leader, Miss Kelly. Incredibly compassionate, warm, easy to talk to, provides amazing advice, and really feel like she's been on our "wavelength". She is an amazing team member, Keaton clearly loves her.Erina Kindergarten Parent
