What do our families think?


We have appreciated everything you have all done for us in our time at MAD. From the day of our tour, we have felt like we were part of a bigger family that cared. I have never once dropped Joey off and felt uneasy. The team have made the transition for him so easy, and he loves being there. He will definitely miss his cuddles from the girls, and I will miss knowing that they care about him as much as we do.

My daughter goes to MAD at Beacon Hill and she absolutely loves it! The teachers are very professional, supportive and caring. I am kept updated with photos and little stories of her daily activities which are fun, varied and educational. I will also be sending my son there when he is old enough.

Amy - Making a Difference, Beacon Hill

Our first born has been attending MAD since the beginning of the year at the age of 3 1/2. We were very nervous about her starting daycare so the small, intimate, warm and nurturing environment really appealed to us and suits her sensitive nature to a tee.

We have loved our time at Making a Difference over the past two years. We have two children who currently attend and we cannot rate it highly enough. The staff are so lovely and caring towards our kids and they always come home with smiles on their faces and funny stories to tell.
