Having our children in care for 5 days a week is hard, but we couldn't think of a better place to send our children. The staff are so accommodating and supportive to there needs. Our children have developed so much and have made some great little friends. We are thankful for what the centre and staff have done for our children

We love Only ELC! We are extremely happy with the level of care provided to our daughter who has been attending for 18 months now. The educators make such an effort to really focus on the children's personal identities and ensure that they connect with each of the children to create a really fun, positive, safe and inclusive learning environment. Our daughter loves attending to see her friends who she names as both children and educators. The facilities are extensive and always extremely clean. We could not be happier.

My kid started his first childcare when he was 16 months in Only. The educators here are so nice and warm. They help my kid went through all the stages and fit into the new environment. My kid loves them and their warm smiles. The admin team also work quite efficiently and always give you a quick response. I feel safe and relax when my kid attends Only.

I am beyond happy with Only ELC and could not recommend Only ELC enough. My son started when he was 6 months and he's always so happy to go to the educators at drop off which lets me know that they make him feel loved and safe and take great care of him. ALL the staff & educators are so friendly and wonderful! They have set the bar really high for any educational institutes going forward! We can't thank them enough for their dedication to what they do and for everything they have all done for my babies over the years, particularly this crazy year.

I don't believe there are enough words to show our appreciation of your hard work during this whole pandemic. Not only do you put yourselves at risk, but also your families and loved ones. I'm sorry to have heard there were some incidents of negative or rude behaviour from parents. It is neither deserved nor appropriate to say the least. Your work is undoubtedly essential and has been truly amazing in our eye's

Thank you for helping shape and mould Isaiah into the thoughtful and clever boy that he is. During this pandemic and as a parent, I was worried about him missing out on social interactions, growth and overall learning in preparation for school. Seeing how excited he is each morning knowing he has 'flower school' just reassures me that we made the right choice for him.
As a working mum, I don't feel like I miss any of Theo's milestones or achievements and it's because I feel included every step of the way. I love seeing how happy Theo is at care and hearing how much he has grown and enjoyed being at OELC.
Wow. I've experienced a handful of day care centres since becoming a mum and can hands down say that OELC was the best choice! To receive communication on weekends and as news happens is incredible. A true testament to management's passion and commitment to caring not only for our kids but all the families who entrust you. You have an amazing team and can only see brighter things ahead!!
We are beyond happy and grateful for the care that Harper receives every day from the wonderful team of educators in the Nursery. It gives us comfort that she is shown such attention and care when she is at the centre when we can't be there. We appreciate the efforts you go to each day, and are happy that our baby is so happy because of this. And we are not at all jealous that she is more attached to you all than she is to us 🙂

Thank you for all you do and the care that you put into your work to make our little ones feel special and loved every day. Anneliese settled in so well since starting at Only ELC in June, this is a true reflection of how comfortable she feels at the centre and the connections she has made with all the Explorer educators. She always has a wonderful time and lots of fun. Every single one of you has been doing a wonderful job during this difficult and challenging period and we truly appreciate the open communication you maintain with all the families as we all navigate the ever changing rules and restrictions. Anneliese is really missing the centre and all her peers and she looks forward to returning hopefully very soon.

An immense appreciation to the educators at Only ELC. Your work ethic combined with your nurturing personalities have played a huge part in the success of the Rouse Hill centre. I’m so lucky to have my kids part of the family, thank you for helping them grow!

Happy Early Childhood Educators Day to all the lovely and caring educators at ONLY Rouse Hill!
In particular, the Explorers room where they have shared their smiles, energy, love and care to Sofia for the past few months. There has been so much change in the world, especially in the last 3 months, and we are so thankful and grateful you are still selflessly opening your doors to keep some form of ‘normality’ for Sofia and her friends in these crazy times. The care and education you give to our children is truly vital to our society and to keep the world ticking. We appreciate you so much and hope you receive the recognition you deserve today and every day!
All of you are an amazing bunch of educators- we can tell you love what you do, and this is not just another job for you. We appreciate your personal commitment to each child, and you have made Only ELC what it is- a great place for our children to learn, prosper and be nurtured in, in an environment that is super loving, inclusive and stimulating. A MASSIVE thank you for everything you do. THANK YOU for being my daughter’s family away from home. she loves each of you and absolutely adores your hugs and cuddles. Thank you for going above and beyond in caring for the little ones. And THANK YOU for holding my son’s hands and making learning fun. All of you have really invested in his development in getting him school ready and building on his individual learning goals.

Happy Early Childhood Educators Day! Judah, Craig and I would like to send a massive thank you to all of Judah’s educators and the team at Only Learning. We can only imagine how challenging Covid has made things for you all and yet you still have smiles on your faces and greet our boy with warmth each day. We appreciate all you do day in day out for our kids! You make such a positive difference in the work you do.
Thank you doesn't seem quite enough to say to you all with what you do each and every day, but we just want to express our deepest gratitude to you all for looking after our baby and being there for him when we can't. He has grown so much and flourished into his little unique personality - all because you guys have been there for him when he needed cuddles, when he needed a friendly smile, when he needed a stage to sing and dance on, when he needed some quiet time, and when he simply needed to be around those who care for him. From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU for looking after our son! You guys are not just educators - you are also his nurses when he injures himself, his nutritionists who prepares his healthy meals, his storytellers when he listens to your stories, his audience when he sings and dances, but most of all you are his friends!
I thank you so much for being the fun-loving and energy-giving people that you are. You have all contributed in some way in shaping my eldest son understanding of the world and his relationships with his friends. I admire your patience and energy in all the activities that you do with him. Most of all, I thank you for the extra time and effort you put into sharing your observations of him. Those are my absolute favourite bits! I also want to thank you so much for all the fun activities and messy play you encourage with my youngest. I adore that he is comfortable with all of you and you have each, in your own ways, made his environment a wonderful place to be in. I am so happy that he has a second home with all of you and that he happily goes into daycare. I love reading about him and I know it is even more work for you to write up your observations and documentations, after having spent the day with him. I just wanted you to know that I appreciate all your time and efforts in sharing how his day went. My mind is at ease when I know my children are with all of you. From the bottom of my heart, I appreciate all you do.
