  • "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! "

  • "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."

  • "Koalaroo preschool is amazing. My son has really thrived with his teachers support, kindness, and love of teaching. My son was barely speaking at 2 1/2, and 6 months later is singing songs, counting to 20, saying his colours and is forming sentences. He has developed such a personality, has made friendships and has bonded so well with his peers and teachers. Koalaroo is definitely a top notch preschool, it has been the best choice for my son's development. We couldn't be happier!"

  • "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 Preschool truly is the best place you can take your kids. The environment is one of stimulation and fun. The teachers are amazing, so nurturing and at the same so good at giving the kids a head start on school. The home cooked meals on site have gotten my kids eating things that I never would have imagined them eating like they do. Koalaroo really is very much my kids' home away from home."

  • "After her first year of school at Koalaroo I am so proud of how much our 2 year old daughter has learned at Koalaroo. This school is absolutely amazing, it is great to have a place to bring our little girl that I feel she is safe, in loving care and is have a great time! I have never had to endure the experience of a screaming exit when dropping her off here. The staff is absolutely amazing and our daughter has made a lot of great friends. I cant say enough about how wonderful Koalaroo is, we did a lot of investigation in finding the perfect school and after her first full year the hard work paid off. We found the perfect place for her at Koalaroo. - Thank you!"

  • "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."

  • "Annie & (Chef) Steve have been wonderful at Koalaroo Preschool. My girls (ages four & nearly two) have learned SO much in the short time they have been there and are truly excited to go every day. I am thoroughly impressed by how professionally this preschool is run and the meals/snacks that they prepare for the kids every day."
