"Our son has been attending St Nicholas Early Education Centre since it opened in early 2016. We have been extremely impressed with the caring, supportive and professional nature in which the staff conduct themselves. Everyone in the centre greets us by name, making us feel like we are part of a close community where the needs of our family are genuinely cared for. We love the consistency of staff, which means that there is a welcoming and familiar face in every room.
We have the highest praise for all the staff, but particularly Emily and Roshana in the Yunung room. Our son has absolutely thrived with them this year and we are so proud to see how much he has grown in confidence and ability under their guidance. Their drive and passion for the job is obvious. They continually seek feedback from the families and expose the children to exciting opportunities and new experiences. They have been outstanding in their care and communication with our family and we can't thank them enough for all their hard work."
–Paul and Ashleigh Dan, parents, St Nicholas Newcastle West.
"As a parent of St Nick's I can say that every single one of the educators at St Nicholas in Singleton go above and beyond for their students every day. We are so overwhelmed by the love our child has for her school and it is thanks to all of them. The time and effort that the teachers put into the reports, portfolios and ongoing feedback is above and beyond and always brings tears to my eyes. Maddie you are clearly doing an absolutely amazing job as Educational Leader- it reflects through all your colleagues. Well done."
–Cas, parent, St Nicholas Singleton

“St Nicholas Early Education in Singleton is full of wonderful, dedicated, caring, fun, engaging and passionate educators. There are an unlimited number of adjectives to describe them. We truly appreciate the personal relationships the staff at St Nicholas have developed with our children and it shows because they just adore their educators and enjoy going to ‘school.’ Sending your children to childcare is a big decision for parents and our experience at St Nicholas has always been very welcoming, accommodating and informative.”
–Trudie, parent, St Nicholas Singleton
"There is nothing more reassuring to a parent of children in care than knowing that they are spending the time away from you in a loving, nurturing and safe environment. The teachers & staff at St Nicholas, Singleton, are what makes this centre unique and special, and easily a cut above any other centre in the region. The centre provides flexibility and strives to meet each family's specific needs and offer flexibility. I know that my children are not only engaged, challenged and having fun, but are also benefiting early from learning to socially interact, find their own identity, and learn about the world. We are blessed to have had nearly four wonderful years already and look forward to the coming years yet."
–Therese, parent, St Nicholas Singleton
"Our daughter has been attending care since she was five months old. She is now three and a half years old and her development and skills are way beyond our expectations. We are absolutely thrilled with not only the educational side, but also the personal care and interest shown in our child and family – from all staff across the centre. We feel so welcomed and comfortable each and every day."
–Marlene, parent, St Nicholas Singleton
"My daughter has been attending care for four years now and in that time I have found all staff really nurturing and willing to go beyond expectations to ensure that Neve was happy and comfortable when attending the care environment. I always feel she is very well cared for and my mind is always at ease knowing that my daughter is being cared for by such a professional team of educators. Neve has benefited from all the learning experiences provided in the play based curriculum and she always comes home full of stories and excitement about her days and what she has learnt with all of her friends."
–Leanne, parent, St Nicholas Singleton
"My son, Oskar loves attending St Nicholas. The staff provide high quality care and are warm, friendly and welcoming. St Nicholas provides my child and the other children with a safe, stimulating and nurturing environment."
