BUSINESS OF THE WEEK

Sweetpeas

If you are in need of a family friendly and caring childcare centre, look no further than Sweetpeas Kindergarten and Long Day Care Centre.

Sweetpeas is a family owned centre in Cranebrook that by all accounts has the friendliest, happiest, fully qualified staff in Penrith.

Owner, Gina Douglass, said that when it comes to providing care for your child, there isn’t a more loving and educational environment.

“As much as we all would love to care for our children full time, the reality for many of us is that working is a necessity,” she said.

“At Sweetpeas we pride ourselves on having a centre that is nurturing and caring – the perfect place for your young child to learn and grow.

“We treat each child as if they were our own, meaning only the best educational practices and programs are given to your child.”

Sweetpeas cater for children from two years to six years of age, and are open from 7.30am to 5.30pm to provide parents with flexibility in hours.
