In a Reddit thread dedicated to all things Brisbane, one user claimed that the signage outside the Albany Creek daycare centre looked like it’s giving “kind messages” but written like a threat. 

“It’s gold. I’m so glad they went ahead with putting these up regardless,” another Reddit user shared.

Others went on to say that they like the children’s mural despite its “nice serial killer vibes.”

“They are my fav. I lose it everytime I drive past them,” said one user.

“Me and my wife can’t help but mention this every time we drive past.”

“My kids went there. The steel uprights are there because a car ploughed through that fence. It used to be an ABC. Fortunately they were closed when it happened. A bit morbid but it could have been a project for the kids and kids don’t pull punches when you give them red paint and free artistic license.”

The signages at Goodstart Early Learning, which can be found along Flamingo Drive, was actually part of the daycare centre’s Kindergartens Fence Mural Project, done with the guidance of the teachers and local artist Al from CommunARTy Brisbane.
