I've worked with kids with disabilities for the past 16 years, so when it came time to choose a daycare centre for my own daughter, I felt confident I knew what to look for in terms of a quality environment.
I made in-person visits to nine different daycare centres around the area, and Papilio (formerly TLC) was the easiest decision I could have hoped for! The things I looked for were - Are the staff friendly, caring, and enjoying their work, does the environment feel warm and homely, are the children receiving individual attention, are the children engaged, and most importantly - are the children HAPPY and having FUN?
ALL of those were HUGE ticks ✅✅✅ at Papilio!!! The lovely Centre Manager Sherrie is always organised and professional, but her caring nature and warmth really shine through above all her other great traits. Exactly the same for Chloe, who the kids adore and always has time for a friendly chat, despite always working hard for our beloved kiddies.
Sherrie and Chloe are very selective with the staff they employ, and I haven't met a single staff member that isn't lovely, warm, caring, and attentive. They're ALL absolutely amazing human beings, and I can't recommend Papilio strongly enough! Five stars doesn't do a review of this home away from home justice. ALL THE STARS!!!
