Reviews for Petit Early Learning Journey - Barton

Nikola Kozomara5 months ago

Two of my kids attended this centre from early 2019 to late 2022. There was a period of great flux and change of guard a couple of years back, but after that it actually became a very stable and well run operation. The staff were all very caring and professional and the management (Shruti & Manisha) always all the ball. They really strived to make improvements wherever possible and I found them both very pleasant and approachable. I always liked going to this place as it was the highlight of my day. Cant give 5 stars because of the parking situation, which was a daily battle that I hope has now been resolved. If so, consider it a 5 star review. Thanks for the nice memories Petit Barton.
