Visitor Reviews of Perisher

Felicity from Australia writes:

I had my 7 month old in the Snowy day care at Perisher. I was NOT happy with my experience. Firstly, I was not allowed to take my baby into the room myself and twice when I opened the door (because there was no one at the front desk after I waited for some time), I saw that my baby was strapped in a pram and just left to cry (unattended) and I was quickly let out of the room and the door closed. It is also very concerning when your baby is sent home with 1 full bottle of formula which hasn't been given. So I can only assume he was given one bottle all day. The feedback I was given both days was -"he was very unsettled today". Well of course he was, he wasn't fed! It does make me very suspicious of the way things are run when you don't let parents come in and check children or put them to bed yourself when you arrive. I think the young girls you have working there are too inexperienced to look after the number of babies you have in there.
