What parents say about us
We have loved the time our daughter has spent at Pascals St Albans.
The teachers and staff have been absolutely amazing over the last 3 years. Their dedication, creative ideas for day to day activities, communication to parents, upskilling and training throughout the year and teaching and knowledge they have passed onto my daughter has made her journey to school a very easy one!
As a mum that works fulltime, I feel very lucky to have found such a caring day care to take care of my daughter, her teachers are truly brilliant at what they do and the love for what they do shines through.
I highly recommend Pascals St Albans to all parents!!!
Both our daughters attended Pascals Albany from the time they were 2 years old, and as a family we have been with the centre now for 5.5 years. In this time we have developed wonderful relationships with the staff, who are committed, caring and highly professional. As a parent, I have always felt that the staff at Pascals Albany have a genuine passion for children and teaching and it is reassuring to drop my children off knowing they are in safe and caring hands. In particular, I have watched and appreciated how the teachers have taken the time to understand my children’s individual personalities and needs, and focused on encouraging and fostering their natural interests and strengths. Both my girls thrived in this environment and I believe that their experience with the centre has had a very positive impact on their confidence, self-esteem and thirst for learning.
I have also felt that communication between the centre and home is excellent. We have especially enjoyed the detailed updates that the teachers put together for the child portfolios. With my youngest daughter now about to start school, I know I will treasure these precious reminders of their pre-school years.
I highly recommend Pascals Albany to any family looking for a high quality early childhood centre for their children.
My son has been in your center for nearly 9 months. I would like to say thanks to you and the teachers in his room.
I feel the center is best we have ever been and the staffs are very caring and supportive. the manger and staffs have shown a great commitment and passion in communicating with parents and creating a caring environment for children. Since the first day I visited the center, Monique has been very helpful to answer my questions and made me feel really welcomed. Nathan has developed the strong and close relationships with teachers especially Kate, Sarah, and other teachers. I really appreciate all you and the teachers have done to help my son quickly settled in the center.
It is sad to leave the center due to the change in the family and we have to move him to the new preschool and it will save me time to pick up and send kids to school. however the experience in you center is so memorable and we definitely will miss you and the teachers in you center.
Thank you so much for all your hard efforts to get Jodie a full time place with you. We do appreciate that so much. Before I end my letter, I have to say that you and your centre are the best - it is fact - it is true and it is not a compliment.
Wanted to share your success story. Anne went into school just three weeks ago and has already been recognised as an independent, dedicated student. Thanks for the preparation work Hummingbirds did with her.
I am sure it takes a lot of time to do the monthly learning stories and magic moments but IT IS WORTH IT!!! I frequently open up ours and look at them and show relatives and we look at them as a family. You probably don't get this feedback because, as we all are, too busy to flick an email, hence mine being an essay now! But in chatting with parents the learning stories are really appreciated, as is the frequent communication with parents through emails updating us on what is going on around the place.
Overall I just want to say thank you for all the amazing things you are doing. It is more than a job and your wonderful teachers are putting their hearts and souls into our special treasures that we trust to you. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
Our family's experience at Pascals Albany has been overwhelmingly positive. I was recommended the centre by family friends with children of a similar age who attended the centre. We have three children who currently attend Pascals Albany. Our eldest daughter started in the nursery when she was nine months old and our second two children (twins) have attended since 10 months old.
Some of the things that make Pascals Albany such a wonderful place are: great communication from the Teachers about how your child's day has been (both written and verbal), the quality and obvious warmth of the relationships between the teachers and children, the quality of the physical environment and resources, the culture of the centre (encouraging respectfulness and care) and the stability of the staff members.
I am impressed with the ever evolving outdoor environment. The teachers are clearly motivated and engaged in their roles and are constantly beautifying and improving the gardens and outdoor play environment.
I truly feel that the Teachers at Pascals Albany are an extension of our family and I don't hesitate to talk to them about any concerns that I have about my children as I feel that together we work together and find solutions to whatever is happening for them. There is real consistency between the home and centre environment.
I would unreservedly recommend Pascals Albany to parents looking for an exceptionally high quality early childhood centre for their children.
Thank you so much for all your hard work and care of Conor, you are outstanding!!! We have really appreciated your flexibility, patience and “just going with the flow” ....Hope the new little people coming through will keep you on toes and best wishes to you all in your continuing excellent work.

Dear Pascals Staff
Thank you all so much for the care and attention you have given to our son over the last 18 + months. He has grown from a small boy who was crawling into an independent, observant and fun boy. I know he will miss all of you and the connections he has made.
Pascals Herne Bay Kindy truly encompasses the word community. If you are looking for an environment that not only supports and nurtures your child’s growth and development; but also ensures a close communication with you the parent. Then this place is for you.
I highly recommend Pascals to any parent considering a good, safe and stable environment for their child.
