    • Hunter and his mum would like to thank everyone at Explore & Develop Glenmore P ark for making his days a fun and enjoyable experience. From the beginning Hunter has connected and enjoyed being around Miss Gail because she has got to know and support him through his good and bad days. She makes our bad days so much brighter.

    • Whilst we are very new to the centre we have settled in very nicely Mila is always very happy to be left with the educators and is always smiling when I come to pick her up. It is a great comfort already having trust in the team and knowing that she is well looked after and enjoys her time there. Thank you educators for making this a smooth transition for our family.
