The Infants Home and Johnson House are like a calm green oasis in the hubbub of busy Sydney. They offer amazing early childhood education delivered by an awesome team of people who clearly enjoy the kids and the work they do with them. The facilities are superb! From the range of materials used in the myriad of different activities the kids get to do each day, to the beautiful heritage buildings set in enormous park-like grounds, to the new state-of-the-art kitchen facilities where the kids meals are cooked on site. Our kids love going to Johnson House!
My son attends Rigby House at the Infants' Home and his educators are so wonderful, warm and caring. He has thrived there since day 1, partly because they encourage a gentle attachment-based transition to daycare and a proper orientation of at least 4-6 visits prior. The staff are experienced and the turnover (from what I've seen) is low. The Director is attuned, available and literally listened to me for 2 1/2 hours when I first met her to talk about my son starting there. They have a speech and occupational therapist on site as well as an early childhood nurse, in case you have any concerns about your child at all. We switched from a corporate daycare and I have zero regrets. Whole heartedly recommend.
We love Gorton house. I have twins currently in Gorton Toddlers following a year in Babies and an older child recently at school having attended all three rooms at Gorton. While the facilities are excellent, the staff are exceptional. Across each of the rooms, the staff are professional, welcoming, and caring and we've been impressed by the cohesiveness of the team in each room. Despite the large number of kids, the atmosphere of the rooms always feels calm and under control. The environment is stimulating, fun and nurturing with a wide range of activities and opportunities over each day. The educators clearly take a genuine interest in the development of the children in their care. They are always happy to chat to us about our boys' days, are quick to inform us of any concerns and are always accommodating and helpful when there are challenges to be worked through. Our kids have always enjoyed day care and speak fondly of their teachers. Thank you Gorton for the wonderful early childhood education you have provided for our boys.
The infants home has been such a blessing for our family. My son is so excited to attend the centre on Wednesdays and Thursday's, often asking "can we go to pre school today, is it open?" on a Friday. The staff here truly care about each child and their development & wellbeing. The point of difference is the extra activities done with the children; the creative and interactive play time rather than just a room full of toys. The grounds are so beautiful and serene, definitely not your average day care or pre school. Speech pathologist etc there also. I feel confident in sending my child here and as a parent that is so important. All the children appear to always be happy and content which is wonderful to see
The Infants Home encourages early learning and child care who provide the foundation for children to develop both educationally and socially in a safe environment while supporting parents into work. Did you know? The Australian Government provides a number of subsidies and programs to help you with the cost of your childcare.
