The standards of care at Turtle Cove are outstanding. The friendly, caring staff are always so attentive and considerate to the child’s needs. They provide daily feedback on our little boy’s activities and are very informative of his progress and development. It’s heartening as a parent that your child loves going to his daycare and looks forward to seeing all his little friends and carers there.

Both our children have attended Turtle Cove since they were 12 months old and absolutely love it.  Turtle Cove was the first daycare centre I visited when I started looking at daycare centres for our daughter.  After seeing Turtle Cove, I didn’t bother looking at any more as everything was so clean, the staff so welcoming and the children so happy.  All the amazing staff work very hard to create a wonderfully caring and nurturing environment and  the extra touches by owners Marilyn, Phil, Andy and Andrew make all Turtle Cove families feel special.  Nothing is ever too much trouble.  We feel very lucky to have found such an exceptional centre in Geraldton and look forward to several more years of being part of the Turtle Cove family.

As a first time mum starting back at work full-time when my son was 6 months old, I found it very difficult to leave him and felt sorry for myself for not having family in town to look after him. Within the first week of taking my son to Turtle Cove I realised that it was probably one of the best parental decisions I have made or will ever make. The staff made us feel so welcome and he was happy to go to any one of the carers which gave me peace of mind.

The Communication Book has been a big help too with a detailed breakdown of his day, how much he ate, times he slept and how many nappy changes he had. There’s also a column for me to share any new information about my son. This has made the transition from home to day care and day care to home so much easier. I also love seeing photos of how his group’s day went when I go pick him up in the afternoon.

Thank you for making the goodbyes in the mornings so much easier and the hello’s in the afternoons something to look forward to. You are our family away from home and we love you more than you realise.


Thank you for all the valuable support you gave our son. You helped him grow in so many ways. The kindness you have shown will remain with us always.

Over the last 4 years it has been such a pleasure to have been part of the Turtle Cove extended family. From Jellyfish, Starfish to Clown Fish – every person at Turtle Cove should be proud for the brilliant professional care they give.

Thank you so much for taking such great care of our son in his first year of childcare.  Turtle Cove has such a homely feel to it. Your warm, friendly and inviting environment made such a tough transition for us seem so much easier.

It has been a privilege to have the Turtle Cove family look after our special little girl. She has no doubt enjoyed your company and we will find it hard to find another Turtle Cove.


Thank you for another wonderful year. Words cannot express how grateful we are for the loving care you give our children.

Thank you so much for looking after our daughter so wonderfully over the last 3.5 years. We wouldn’t entrust our girls to anyone else.

Kirsten & Jay

A huge thank you to all you beautiful people for helping our boys to love, learn, grow & play over the past 4 years. We appreciate all you have done and for allowing us the privilege of being part of the Turtle Cove family.

Michelle & Jeremy

Thank you all for looking after and loving my two children over the past 5 years. Turtle Cove has been a part of my family and you have given me the chance to return to work knowing they are in loving hands.


We would like to thank you for your warm care, concern and love for our daughter. She absolutely loves coming to ‘Turtle School’ and has grown so much in her 6 months there.

Bianca & Damien

Thank you for caring for our daughter for the last two years…it put our minds at ease to know she was in your capable hands.

Nancy & Tim

We really can’t thank you enough for making our son so happy and secure in his new Geraldton ‘nursery school’. Turtle Cove is such a special place. He talks about it all the time when he is at home and would come every day if he could.

Ian & Jo

Thank you all so much for the exceptional care you have given our son over the two years he has been with you. There really are no words adequate to explain properly just how much we will miss you when we leave.
