Amazing staff with so much heart and caring mindsets. It’s wonderful seeing the children get excited about going to school here. The educators really make an effort to engage with the children and develop their skills in a very individualised way. The management is really committed to providing a safe, fun, and loving environment. Highly recommend them!

As a childcare educator myself I was very picky about where I wanted to put my son into daycare. From the minute I walked in i felt this was the place for him. The staff have been so welcoming and amazing. You can tell the chef puts alot of love into her work and the room leader Sasha in the Shelly's room has been nothing short of fantastic along with the other girls. My Son is always so excited to go to school. 10/10 would recommend

Smartland Port Macquarie is a beautiful, welcoming, home-away-home for babies and children. The facilities are brand new and state of the art. All staff are attentive and compassionate to the babies, children, and parent’s needs, including those with allergies and special considerations. Couldn’t recommend them more highly.

My little boy started at smartland a few weeks ago and I am very impressed! They have worked so hard to ensure he feels comfortable and safe without Mum there. The centre itself is amazing with so many great facilities for our little people and the staff are all super friendly and always happy to help anytime you need it. The activities are carefully thought out to engage and stimulate our children to see them progress on their learning journeys.

Absolutely love smartland daycare. The staff are so caring and welcoming. I was hesitant to first send my children to daycare but the staff made this transition so much easier and my two children settled in so quickly and now love going to school. Smartland is a very family based centre with activities involving families all the time which is amazing. Thanks for giving my children a safe place to come learn and play.

From the moment you step foot into Smartland Early Learning, you just know this is the place for your little love(s). It is absolutely amazing! Our boy has been at Smartland for almost two years now and has made so much progress in his early development and confidence. It has a family, community feeling which is what we love. The educators are worth their absolute weight in gold - they are genuinely so energetic, understanding, supportive and inclusive of all the children that are in their care. They work so so hard and we appreciate every single one of them. The educators in each room work as a brilliant team and strive every single day to make sure each child feels safe and happy. You can see the passion - they love what they do. We love the app Smartland uses to send photos and messages to us each day and the welcoming family events that are organised. Special dress up days, centre events for the children, incursions and excursions are another added bonus! I can't even imagine if we had to worry about nappies, wipes and lunch boxes - thank goodness we don't have to! I love that it is all-inclusive and Cate, the chef, prepares, cooks and involves the children in the process of making all nutritious meals and snacks (that my son will actually eat)! If you're looking for a daycare or preschool for your child(ren), definitely contact the centre for a tour - you will not be disappointed! Everything about it feels right.

I can't recommend smartland enough. My little boy has flourished since attending smartland. All the Educators are caring and focus on the individuality of each child. The environment is welcoming and it makes me happy knowing my child has such a great wonderful, safe space to learn and play.

I can't recommend Smartland highly enough. 😍
Everything about the centre; its philosophy, facilities, resources, activities and especially the staff have made it an enjoyable transition for me to return to work. My kids love Smartland and its like a home away from home for them and the educators are like family. 💕 I have no doubt the staff nurture my children's well-being and development to the highest standard.
It's difficult to put into words how amazing this centre is. Organise a tour and see for yourself! 👀

We would be lost without our Smartland Family! All three of my girls have now spent time at Smartland and developed the most beautiful relationships and connections with their educators. All 3 of my kids are so wildly different in personality and needs and all 3 have thrived and been supported in the way that they needed at Smartland.

From the very beginning the team at Smartland Port Macquarie have been so accommodating and responsive. Being a new parent I had no idea what to expect when it came to sending my child to daycare. I felt so taken care of, supported and understood through the entire process.
I love that I can confidently drop my child off knowing they're so well taken care of not to mention the ease of everything... I don't have to worry about packing any food or nappies the night before as everything is provided onsite (a few less things for my mum brain to worry about).
Could not praise the team and centre enough!

Smartland Port Macquarie is such an amazing place! Our daughter loves being part of the family. And that really is what it is. The educators put so much love and time into the activities they prepare. They know each child as an individual and their learning needs. Each morning and afternoon at drop off the staff at the front desk have a smile on their face and are happy to assist with any questions. I highly recommend!

We are so happy with our decision to enroll our daughter at Smartland. From the get-go the staff have been incredibly welcoming and friendly and the educators my daughter has caring for her are Angels on Earth. They have been very supportive and patient with her transition into care (both with her and myself!) and I can’t thank them enough for all that they do for us. The in-house chef, Cate, is also a living breathing Angel and has been SO lovely and accommodating with my daughters’ specialty diet and I’m eternally grateful.

I also want to mention that I am blown away by the design of the building (so much natural light and beautiful greenery!), as well as all of the beautiful toys and activities they have available for the little ones. I could spend all day long in there admiring it all 😍

Smartland is an amazing daycare centre. They support my two girls with their development, whilst also looking after their well-being and provide a supportive learning environment. They LOVE going to ‘school’ everyday and seeing the familiar faces of the educators and their friends.
My 3 year old at the time was transitioning from a different daycare centre and was really struggling. The centre manager and the room leader put a plan in place to make sure all her needs were met and that her transition was a smooth one. They went above and beyond.

Where do I start! We love Smartland. They have been amazing since day one. Firstly helping us through the process, the reassurance and confidence made us feel at ease. We love that the food is nutritious and cooked onsite by chef. ALL the staff are always happy and smiling, never walking past without saying hello.

Our son has grown from strength to strength, definitely coming out of his shell, socialising and forming nice little friendships. We are so grateful to his teachers, they are present and really involved.

Thank you Smartland! You are appreciated more than you know 🙂

Smartland Early Learning, should be everyone’s first option to start their childrens education.
I always have full trust in that they are looking after Bella without question, and helping her grow into a beautiful little girl and preparing her for primary school.
I appreciate that they take onboard any personal requests for Bella and and I have confidence that they do the best for her whilst I am at work.
The activities that they provide for children are fun and exciting yet still have that educational aspect as well.
Walking in the front door each day they always know mine and my daughters name and welcome us in.
We will miss this team when Bella moves forward into primary school.

My daughter attended Smartland in 2021 and now my son attends in the infants room. I cannot recommend the centre enough, people are friendly from the moment you enter, they remember your names, and treat your children like family. The people are supportive and caring and take an active interest in each child. The centre itself is beautiful and carefully designed, with modern play items and equipment and also very clean.
