What people are saying

'The entire program is so well run, efficient, safe, constructive. All the teachers have just been fantastic. Very impressed and I love taking Scarlett there as much as she loves going.'
Parent, NIDA Neverland, Grades K-2, Kensington

'My son is the shyest person I have ever met yet he wants to be an actor. My husband and I have been worried about getting him into acting classes because he is so shy. But he LOVED IT so he will definitely do every NIDA course at Campbelltown offered from now on.'
