Amazing centre- Gilleston Heights

We have had our son at the Gillieston Heights centre since it opened and have nothing but amazing things to say about the centre. The educators are are so lovely, warm and welcoming. They show a great level of care and love towards our son and all the other children and keep us informed of his development and progress each day.
The management team are also fantastic. They always greet us with a smile, regularly send emails and other correspondence to keep all families in the loop of what's going on at the centre like events etc or illnesses.
I know my son is in great hands with the educators and team at Gillieston Heights Tillys!
