Choosing the best childcare with an outstanding preschool program for her son Jerry, was a priority Mona. That’s because Jerry, who started attending Oz Education Early Learning Centre when he was two years old, has a congenital heart defect. His mother Mona remembers that it was a very difficult decision and she wanted to choose the best childcare centre for her brave little boy.
“I wanted a first-class childcare centre, one that I could trust to provide him with the excellent child care. Oz Education’s nurturing, homely environment put me at ease right from the start. It ticked all the boxes – their teachers are qualified, experienced and very lovely, the centre is safe and clean, and their on-site cook prepares freshly prepared, nutritious meals every day. ”
“From our first day up till our last day, Oz Education has proven to be the best childcare. The support at the childcare centre has been outstanding – it is like a second home for Jerry. His teachers knows his limits and are always there for him. Knowing that he is in a safe and nurturing place, gives me peace of mind.”
The past few years have also proved to be a tremendously fun learning journey for Jerry who struggled with learning due to his condition.
“Our play-based, tailored preschool program has helped Jerry build new skills based on his stage developmental needs and unique interests,” says Nishi Gupta, Centre Director at Oz Education.
”We make learning fun. Our teachers also provide extended learning opportunities to further enhance each child’s cognitive, social, emotional and physical skills, in preparation for school and for life.”
“Jerry started with us in the Baby Early Learning Program. Over the years, we have loved seeing him grow and thrive with confidence. I can proudly say that he has acquired a strong set of skills that will help him at school and beyond.”
Mona is delighted to see the change now. Today, like most kids his age, Jerry loves playing soccer, eating pizza and spending time with his older brother and friends. Active and smart, no one would not have guessed that the brave little boy has a congenital heart defect.
“It gives me tremendous joy to see that he is able to sit and listen to his preschool teachers and actively participate during news time, just like he would in a formal school setting.”
”He can spell his own name, identify shapes, colours and numbers, he can even sing in Mandarin and he knows a variety of sport and dance moves! We’re glad we don’t have to hold him back from starting school this year, thanks to his wonderful learning journey at Oz Education. It’s as the best childcare centres and preschool program around, and I can’t recommend them enough.”
Jerry will start school at St Mel’s Catholic Primary School tomorrow.
