Creative Garden Early Learning Cheltenham is an excellent childcare centre. The team is extremely supportive and they all work really hard to provide superior education for the kids. My son loves going there and has such fun and always comes home having learnt something new! The food is excellent and they even provide dinner (which is unusual for a childcare). I love how each day I get sent photos and videos of the activities my son is doing - I love seeing him playing with all the other kids and knowing he is well looked after. Without hesitation, I would highly recommend this childcare to all parents in the Bayside area.

Our Son has attended Creative Garden in Cheltenham since He was 7 Months old and we couldn’t be happier with the centre and the care he receives. He runs straight up to his educators when we arrive in the morning and gives them a big hug, he absolutely loves the 3 days a week he spends there. We receive regular updates of his health, food and drink intake, sleep and learning outcomes, including photos of what he is up to through the explor app. All the meals are wonderful (he always goes for seconds, or thirds!), the facilities and play yards are great, and the staff are so friendly and helpful. Nothing is ever too much trouble and they always answer any questions we have. I can’t recommend them enough!

I can’t recommend Hope and her team more. Our experience with Creative Garden was truly incredible and left a lasting, positive impact on our children. Our kids wouldn’t want to leave when it was time to go home! The educators and management team are all phenomenal, they genuinely care and the kids adored them all, not to mention Yuval the amazing chef feeding them so well. We moved back to Sydney and were so sad to leave the team. This is simply the most incredible centre - send your kids here, you will not go wrong.

I have an 11-month-old baby at Creative Garden Cheltenham and could not be happier! Many people recommend a few particular centres in the area, but I cannot see how this early learning centre could be topped. The staff worked tirelessly to make my little girl feel comfortable and able to settle in, even before I was paying fees. I receive daily photographs, videos, and notifications about every nappy change, nap, and meal. These help me to see just how happy my baby is- she's loving interacting with the staff and the other babies, eating the chef-made food, and of course the changing selection of toys and activities. One of the key staff who has been looking after my child, Cindy, is someone who I trust 100% and who remembers all of the small details. The rest of the staff, including the management, are also excellent. I was extremely nervous at my first "stay and play" and wondered if I really was going to be able to return to work and leave my baby to be cared for three days a week. I needn't have worried, as everyone here is professional and goes to great lengths for all of the kids. My daughter is also learning a great deal and really flourishing.

Creative garden in Cheltenham is the best child care centre I have seen! They are all very good people and very caring. From day one they made us feel like we are family. My daughter was and still is very difficult with people and doesn't want to be left with anyone but me. But this is not the case with the centre staff! To the point that she calls Violeta "mum". They have been absolutely amazing and it will definitely be a very sad day when she goes to primary school!!! I strongly recommend this place!!

My little boy started at Creative Garden Cheltenham this year, and he absolutely loves it!! All the educators are so kind and caring. I feel extremely happy knowing he is well looked after and enjoying himself while he is there. I would highly recommend this child care centre to anyone.

I am so happy that I picked this centre for my son. I was really nervous about getting him started at day care. Claire was so warm from the day we did the tour and Violeta really is as good as all the reviews suggest - she really treats the kids like her own. The team really worked hard to ensure my son had a smooth transition into day care. The centre is beautiful, there is a strong focus on being outdoors in nature as the name suggests, and the rooms and outdoor play areas are amazing. Very impressed with the friendliness of the team there and the previous reviews. Super happy with my decision! Huge thanks to all the carers. All I hear at home now is “daycare tomorrow! Let’s go see Maree, Melani and Violeta”
