Both of my children currently attend Westport Early Learning Centre and are very happy there. I love the way that the individual needs of my two very different children are well catered for. There is a great outdoor space for my busy son (4), who spends most of his time outdoors creating 'dinosaur land' or on the pirate ship or spaceship (playground) travelling to faraway lands. The 'young explorers' programme has been fantastic for introducing him to some structured learning. My daughter (2) started in the infant and toddlers area and formed a close bond with her teachers there. The transition process (into the over 2's area) was seamless and she is very happy in the new environment with her brother. I feel that the staff really take the time to get to know each child, and cater the learning to their interests, with an emphasis on play based learning. Most of the time my kids come home, they are covered in sand/paint,/glitter and have great stories to tell!
I would recommend WELC to any parents looking at childcare options in Westport. Both of my boys have loved their time at the centre and I have always found the staff to be professional, caring and dedicated.
