Nara Community Early Learning Centre Reviews

  • Gia Kelly - about 1 year ago

    Nara is amazing. The staff are so genuine and they put a huge amount of energy into making Nara a really special place for the kids. I have two kids there and they both love it. The garden is big and established and the kids spend most of the day outside so they don't get sick like they used to do when they went to a more indoor based centre.
