My daughter loves attending Moa Kids Community preschool as she has a great rapport with the teachers and there is a wide variety of activities to keep her entertained and stimulated. As parents, we choose Moa Kids as the teachers work well together, follow a Reggio inspired philosophy and are lead by a driven leadership team, and it shows. Jordana Clarke
We love knowing our daughter is happy without us. Lee Davies
We have a long standing affiliation with Moa Kids, starting 7 years ago when my autistic son began attending. I was genuinely amazed at how skilled the staff were at getting the best out of my boy and recognising his strengths. Now my youngest is nearly at school and has thoroughly enjoyed going to Moa Kids, in fact she has often asked to stay the night! These ladies are the nicest group of relaxed, supportive and inclusive teachers, the facility is well equipped with great outdoor play areas and equipment for both boys and girls. I highly recommend the centre for any child. Paula Peck
Moa Kids continues to provide a happy, safe and stimulating environment for our youngest child. He feels so comfortable with both the setting and the teachers which, to us as parents, demonstrates the respect and genuine passion for children and their associated development that runs through the entire Centre. From the nursery to the Dolphin Club our boys have felt safe, secure and cared for all whilst supporting our personal family philosophies. For us this was the only choice that provided positive benefits not just for our children but our entire family. I would not hesitate to recommend the Moa Kids to any parent wanting to know the best childcare facility in the Bays Cluster Area. Rachel Stracey
I would have no hesitation recommending Moa Kids to any new parent looking for a loving, caring and safe environment for their children. Jude Coombs
As a first time mother returning to work, I found the selection of the right Nursery/ Preschool to suit our family the hardest part of the puzzle. I visited a number of centers with my son, but it wasn't until we spent a lovely couple of hours in the nursery-garden at Moa Kids that I felt truly comfortable.
Two years on, I couldn't be happier with that choice. Our son is now a confident, energetic, social being who lights up when he hears it is a "Moa Kids Day". I'm so grateful for the patience, care and respect the teachers bring to guiding him (and us) through all of those challenges of the preschool years. The range of activities and experiences he gets to enjoy with his friends at Moa Kids is genuinely beyond what we would do together at home – there is little I love more than knowing the whole family has had a busy, challenging and satisfying day.

Both of our children spent many happy years at Moa kids, from nursery through to transitioning for school. Both our boy and girl loves the environment and the staff. I don't ever recall a day that either of the children came home saying that they hadn't had a great day at Moa kids. There was very little turn over in staff so the continuity and familiarity helped enhance a safe and secure environment. Even through the unsettling seismic events of 2011 and 2012 we felt confident leaving our children at Moa kids knowing that they were in a safe and caring environment. The centre has a strong community feel, is a focal point for the families in the area and enjoys much support from a wide community. The staff at Moa kids are helpful, approachable and experienced. We have been very pleased with how our children have developed and transitioned into the a school environment. Ruth Love-Smith
I considered several preschools before deciding on Moa Kids for our daughter. She was under 1 at the time so it was wonderful to know that she was being so well looked after in the nursery. She has since moved onto the pre-school and my second daughter has also progressed from the nursery into the preschool.
Our children love going to preschool and have formed a strong bond with all the teachers. There has been very little change in teaching staff over the 3.5 years we have been attending which gives the children such a sense of stability and belonging. It is also greatly reassuring to know that all the staff are fully qualified teachers, so I know they fully understand the processes for leaning and development of a child. They enjoy being able to explore the fantastic outside space and the open plan area inside means that they are always under supervision. Both of them have formed strong friendships with other children and are gently encouraged in whatever activity they feel like doing that day. There isn’t a day goes by without some new art work that they have done that day being proudly shown off at collection time. Our eldest is now part of Dolphin Club (over 4s learning group), which is such a great preparation for school with structured learning each day. She has amazed us with her knowledge of letters and writing skills and can also tell us all about the planets, which was the children’s chosen topic for last term. I would have no hesitation recommending Moa Kids to any new parent looking for a loving, caring and safe environment for their children. Jude Coombs
