The Daily Telegraph.
Crows Nest Kindergarten was established by Denise and Michel Azoulay. Denise and Michel migrated to Australia in 1962 with their two children, Gilda aged 4 and Harry aged 2. Denise was a teacher and Michel an accountant. Settling into Australia at that time and finding childcare was not an easy task. Eighteen months of determination, perseverance and hard work resulted in opening the first long day care centre in NSW.
