What our parents say:

"Both my kids go there and love it. What distinguishes this centre from others are the staff who are more like family."

_Emily Wong_

“Highly qualified, friendly and caring educators. The children come from various parts of the world, so this place is filled with diverse cultures which we really love. I am very happy that my little one is enjoying her every day with lovely friends and teachers. The included meals are a big plus for us too."

_Khoa Hoang_

"My daughter started at Playhouse when she was 6 months old. I was very nervous but the staff were lovely and spent a lot of time with both of us before I left her there for her first day. She's moved up to the toddler room now and happily waves me off each morning. There is a sense of camaraderie among the staff that makes it a very cheery place."
