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.
