What our families say about us ...
  • "We moved our child from another centre to Macquarie when she was 11 months old after a terrible experience. MCC were the complete opposite and have been the best change we ever made. They were fantastic at answering all our questions and addressing any worries we had from our old centre, their policies and procedures are documented so well and adhered too by staff, their communication regarding our child has been exceptional. We are so comforted that our child is so well cared for."

  • "When I drop off my 11 month old each morning, I know that he will be in good hands, that he will be looked after, loved & treated with respect. He will be encouraged to have fun, explore the world, be himself whilst learning all the things he needs to. I have the greatest respect for all of the staff at the centre. A smile & hello from everyone at anytime. The educators who take care of our child are fantastic, dedicated, caring, go above & beyond at all times."
