Family For Life

We are so happy with the care provided at Tilly’s East Maitland. Our 2 & 3 yo boys attend and we couldn’t be happier with how we are treated by the wonderful staff. Our children are happy and thriving and we have created a little extra family and community. The programs are great, menu’s are wonderful, resources are amazing and we feel very cared for with our boys holistic learning and development. They have also done incredible to work with our family to include our Indigenous culture. From our Educators, to our Cook, to Management, we are so thankful for Tilly’s East Maitland to be apart of our family. Thank you! Sumner Family 🙂 xo.
