Both of my children have attended care at this centre, the educators and management always go above and beyond for my children. From the nursery room through to preschool. I have complete trust in the educators and the duty of care they provide!

My two children have attended OAC Penrith over the past 7 years, and I have always had the utmost confidence that they would be cared for and engaged while there. My older child has fond memories of her time there, and my younger one enjoys being there, has made some good friends and has been learning a lot. She is able to access activities, experiences and learning opportunities that I would never be able to provide at home. I particularly like that she has a number of male educators, as I think having a range of positive male role models is important, and can be difficult to find in an early childhood education setting.

Bianca, Sawat, Myles Chloe and the rest of the team have been caring for our youngest for over 2 years.The centre is clean and well maintained consistently, the staff are always friendly and engaging, and this gives us full confidence that our son is receiving the best in care.We are very grateful for their ongoing support, and they showed flexibility when our care needs changed at certain points.I would recommend OAC Penrith to other prospective parents who need permanent or casual child care arrangements based off our experience.Well done OAC Penrith team

My third child is there now and I have been apart of the centre for 10 years. Always very friendly and approachable staff. Very accommodating when a casual day is required and it’s so nice that my 2 year old shares the same educators as my 10 year old did. Highly recommended

Amazing staff with so much heart and caring mindset. It’s nice seeing my kids get excited about going to daycare here. The educators really make an effort to engage the kids and develop them in a very individualised way. The management is really committed to providing a safe, fun, and loving environment and we’re very thankful. We have been with OAC since 2018 when my oldest daughter started. And now my Son 3 and youngest Daughter 10months are there.

I have been a loyal and happy mum to little learning since my 1st born was out into their care October 2014. I now have my 2nd child with them and couldn't be more happier in the growth the centre has grown since our time there. They are always looking for feedback in regards to how they can improve. This gives me comfort knowing they only want what is best for every child's needs, Which every parent obviously wants also. 5 stars isn't enough!

We have now been here for 2.5 years and my daughter absolutely loves it. I love that she is learning a lot by being here and I also love the educators. They are what makes a school brilliant and without them they wouldn’t be the success it is today.
