“Our son is very happy at Morning Star Preschool. The friendly and knowledgeable staff make us feel assured that he is in a safe, positive and educational environment. We receive regular updates on his progress and enjoy seeing the new developments in his learning. It is excellent that our son has an opportunity to interact with other children and his teachers in a bilingual English/Mandarin context. We are confident that the curriculum at Morning Star helps our son prepare socially and emotionally for his future life, as well as giving him a solid foundation for his primary education.”

“Jonathan really enjoys his time at Morning Star and always looks forward to going to school. He has made a lot of friends and it is great that he is maintaining his Mandarin language skills and developing his writing skills. Jonathan will start primary school this year and we are both looking forward to Jonathan being involved in the after school Morning Star Chinese Language class.”

“Our daughter clearly enjoys her time at Morning Star and her language skills have improved tremendously. We have also been impressed with the behavior of children at Morning Star in contrast to the chaos we have seen at other childcare centres. The Morning Star team are doing a great job and we would happily recommend them.”
