  • "Koalaroo is much more than a daycare centre. My 4 year old daughter has extreme anxiety issues so I was very apprehensive about sending her to all-day/everyday Jr. Kindergarten this year. Instead I chose Koalaroo Preschool because of their smaller classroom setting (and more attention to the students individual needs). The facility is very well maintained and clean. There are separate rooms for the younger children and older 'students'. There is a safe place to go and play outside after class and Chef Steve makes amazing meals/snacks for the children everyday which is wonderful. My daughter thrived in this environment and I know this was the right decision for her this year. All the teachers/assistants were so caring and attentive. If my daughter was younger, I would have definitely sent her back another year. We'll miss the staff! Thank you so much for such a wonderful first 'school' experience."

  • "Being first-time parents, we experienced the typical concerns of placing our child in the care of others. When we first brought our daughter to Koalaroo Preschool we were quickly comforted by how welcoming and friendly the staff was. The impact was immediate as we watched her happily interact with her teachers and fellow students, and blossom before our eyes both socially and intellectually. The expert guidance and genuine love that is provided to the children allows them to thrive in every aspect of their development. We are witnessing new milestones on a weekly basis. Our daughter loves to sing and to explore her environment with an enthusiastic curiosity that we know will form the foundation for her as she grows and develops into happy, content and productive individual. With the added bonus of having healthy cooking provided by the in-house chef, we know at the end of the day when we pick her up that she has been well nourished in every way. We highly recommend Koalaroo Preshool."

  • "There are no words to describe how amazing this school is and how appreciative we are for EVERYTHING they have done for our little boys. Our 3 year old had a speech delay so we decided to try putting him in preschool to see if it could help. Within a few months he was talking in full sentences and singing songs. Also, our 2 year old was recently diagnosed with Autism and the improvement we have seen in him over the year has been astonishing. We are so grateful to all of the staff at Koalaroo and so happy we chose this preschool for our children's first school experience."

  • "Koalaroo is a fantastic preschool for all the reasons current and past parents already know: caring teachers, excellent programming, wonderful freshly on-site cooked, by a real chef, meals (and not simply microwave warmed-up prepackaged snacks as majority of other centres do). However they are furthermore outstanding for how far their caring for each individual child extends: to also include, with open arms, children with a variety of learning and developmental disabilities, and to help them thrive alongside their 'neurotypical peers', as equal and valued participants. They also work with different teams of support workers that such children may have access to - such as Simcoe County resource and support workers, as well as private therapists that may have been hired by the families - to incorporate their support for the child right into the daily programming and experiences the child is receiving at the preschool, while also benefiting from regular interaction with their peers. This makes them unparallelled in not only sincere caring for the child's well-being, but willingness to accept challenges above simply providing 'regular childcare'. (and their 'regular childcare' is far and above the rest, too!) Thank you, Koalaroo! "

  • "I looked all over Barrie to find the perfect school for my daughter, Julia. Thankfully, I found it at Koalaroo. The teachers at Koalaroo provided Julia with a very positive introduction to school and an excellent foundation for learning! We are extremely appreciative and impressed with your program. In the words of Julia “Koalaroo is a great school because the teachers make me feel so special, I learn a lot of fun things and Chef Steve makes really great food”. Thank you for putting your heart and soul into your school by creating a positive environment for Julia to learn and grow."

  • "Koalaroo has been a warm, nurturing place for our son. He adores his cool Aussie teacher Mrs. Meechan. Annie brings tons of professional and personal experience to her school. Our son loves Mr. Meechan's yummy lunches and asks for 2-3 helpings!!"

  • "We have been thrilled with the program at Koalaroo since its inception. Both of our kids have gone through the program and have not only thrived socially, but exceeded all of our expectations for age-appropriate educational milestones. Open communication with the teacher helped us keep the guidance our kids were receiving consistent between school and home. At Koalaroo, the kids really are the top priority. We would enthusiastically recommend Koalaroo Preschool to anyone looking for a top quality education for their toddlers and preschoolers."

  • "My son has been attending Koalaroo for 3 years. Annie and Chef Steve have created such a wonderful atmosphere it only yields happy and joyous children. The lessons are constructive and built for each age group and the meals are amazing! Chef Steve has created a 2 month menu with meals from different parts of the world. My goal was to send my son to KBS after Koalaroo. His transition was seamingless! Thank you Annie, Steve and everyone at Koalaroo for helping mold my son into the wonderful boy he is today."
