Oh gosh where to start here, Jake started WNT at 2 years 7 months a shy little boy with not much confidence, the lovely teachers helped him learn so much and blossom, he learnt abc's 123's and how to talk to people and let them know how he feels, learnt right from wrong, healthy choices, the amazing trips throughout the year made kindy exciting for him whens the next adventure where are we going next he couldn't wait and neither could I to hear the amazing stories he came home with, always willing to help the children explore and find out information about little things they were/are interested in, the kindy teachers where easy approachable and very understanding willing to help with advice and support, Jake today is the young boy he is because of the help support and love he received from the amazing staff at WNT.
