Testimonials Mountain View Children's Centre
Staff are always friendly and encouraging toward my child. My child seems comfortable and happy in their care. Very happy with the cleanliness and the amount of outside play.
Communication and Teamwork are the key strengths of the centre. All staff are extremely approachable. Jenny is a confident leader and supportive to parents. Planned sessions such as Italian lessons and Stranger Danger from Julie were very effective. Planned craft sessions also produced great results during the year. The food/menu is very well planned and prepared - my child often comments about his meal and how much he had enjoyed it.
Friendly, warm environment where I feel confident to leave my child for the day.
Every staff member is very friendly and professional to all people that they speak to.

My son has participated in childcare at the Mountain View Children's Centre situated in Myrtleford since August 2008. Being a 'first timer' at long-day care is quite a daunting experience for the 'new' mother particularly when returning to work is essential.
The orientation process is systemized to ensure that the procedure is consistent and to ensure parents are informed of the primary features of the centre. Even though the first day of childcare is somewhat overwhelming it certainly did not take long for me to feel comfortable with leaving my child at the centre. The staff are truly wonderful; despite what a challenging career child care must be at times, I often look in awe at the level of respect and love the carers have for 'our' children. The centre's facilities are excellent with large play areas inside and outside. The children are provided with meals that are not only appetizing but nutritious too with morning and afternoon tea and cooked lunches.
The centre is progressive and open to suggestions for improvements which I believe to be a critical factor in meeting the needs of parents. I believe the centres' communication with parents along with the systems and protocols in place and more importantly the level of care exhibited by the carers make Mountain View Child Care Centre an extremely valuable asset to the parents of Myrtleford and surrounding areas.
