Thank you all so much for your support to our family. All your patience and care while Kyle is in your care means a lot to us. Kyle has indeed learned a lot and he is very excited to move on to the big school. We will miss coming to Reach for the Stars, especially I am just working nearby. Kyle really likes you, Hayley, as well as his teachers. Regards to everyone. We will miss you all.

Carmela (Kyle’s Mum)

Karyn, Bruce and all of the early childhood teachers at reach for the stars have been like family to my daughter and I. They are all so loving and genuinely care for the children and parents. They have been the greatest role models and friends that Lunar and I could have ever been lucky enough to meet. Thank you for creating a beautiful childhood for my daughter and all of the unforgettable memories we'll take with us for life.

Lunar's Mum

Our twin girls attended RFTS for a year and a half before heading to school and we could not have been happier with the service and care that they received. The staff and facilities are simply fantastic and the relationships that our girls formed are priceless. We look forward to bringing them back for visits in future. I wholeheartedly recommend Reach for the Stars ELC.
