Additional Centre Information

More Than Childcare - A Place to Learn with our Grow Curriculum

The Grow Curriculum is our unique educational framework and the basis for essential early years learning and development. It is guided by the Australia Early Years Learning Framework and the Australian National Curriculum. Our Grow Curriculum is designed by our in-house Education and Health specialists and tailored for Nursery, Toddler and Preschool/Kindergarten children. A focus on left brain logic and right brain creativity is at the heart of our approach to early learning and we go beyond education to encompass the social development, health & wellbeing of every child in our care.

We believe children learn best through play, so learning is woven into every experience, through both structured and unstructured learning. With our play-based approach to learning, every day includes consistent learning opportunities – and is fun at the same time.


Left Brain Logic

Literacy and language, exploration and STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) and sustainability are taught by our dedicated Educators in small groups using active strategies such as demonstrating, open questioning, shared thinking and problem solving.


Right Brain Creativity

Music, dramatic play and art is practiced daily through play-based learning and uninterrupted play. Our campuses have an abundance of stimulating resources to encourage your child’s creativity.


More Than Childcare - Health & Wellbeing

Growing bodies and minds need physical activity, nutrition and safe sleep practices to thrive. Our expert in-house Health Team includes Occupational Therapists, Speech Pathologists and Dietitians to care for your child’s total wellbeing.


Social Development

Trust and mutual respect are fundamental to every child’s social development. We believe that fostering respectful and reciprocal relationships with our families will develop capable and confident learners.


Set for the transition to school

Our dedicated curriculum focuses on school-readiness outcomes such as a love of learning, emotional wellbeing, health, social and communication skills so that every child has the opportunity to thrive in their transition to a school environment.

Progressing from preschool/kindergarten to school is a huge milestone, not only for a child but for their parents too. Our in-house specialist Speech Pathologists, Occupational Therapists and Head of Health run regular School Readiness information workshops for parents, so families can support and encourage their child’s school readiness beyond the classroom and in a home environment.

More Than Childcare - Health & Wellbeing Focused

Our unique approach to health & wellbeing focuses on physical activity, nutrition, safe sleep & allied health services. It is designed and delivered by our dedicated in-house team of Dietitians, Occupational Therapists, Speech Pathologists and Vision Specialists. We support families through individual consultations and information workshops. These services are all-inclusive within your daily fee.

Let's get physical

Physical confidence and being active is important to every child’s self-esteem and wellbeing. Our specialist Exercise Science and Human Movement program managers help children learn important gross motor skills, and a love of physical activity. Children improve their hand eye coordination, balance, flexibility, fitness, motor planning and body awareness through a range of activities.


Occupational Therapy

Children’s occupational therapy aims to promote a child’s participation and independence through every day, age appropriate activities. Our Occupational Therapists can provide strategies for your child’s learning, socialising and motor skills. We can refer you to additional support if your child is having difficulty in any of these developmental areas.


Speech and Language

Our children’s Speech Pathologists help children to develop appropriate speech sounds as well as their understanding and use of verbal language. Our team can provide screening, at your request, to identify any speech or language difficulties in children and provide recommendations for appropriate therapies to support your child.


School Readiness Vision Screening

As part of our commitment to the health and development of each child, we offer every child a complimentary vision screening as part of our school readiness program. The screenings are completed the year before your child starts school by our Consultant Orthoptist (in VIC and QLD) and NSW Health in NSW and aims to detect vision issues before school commences.

More Than Childcare - Nutrition to grow little bodies and minds

We started with the simple premise, that children aren't small adults, so their nutrition needs are different. Rapid growth means energy needs for their size are high.

Dietitian Designed Meals

Did you know most children form lifelong eating patterns by the time they reach school age?

Our in-house Dietitians design a delicious, rotating seasonal menu to offer a variety of meals. Each Only About Children campus has their own in-house cook to freshly prepare all meals from our seasonal menu, daily.

Every child in our care enjoys a range of nutritious and delicious meals and snacks every day.


Sample Menu

BREAKFAST – An assortment of seasonal fruits, toast & cereal

MORNING TEA – Crunchy granola yoghurt sundae

LUNCH – Cheesy beef nachos with avocado or Cheesy bean nachos with avocado & tomato salsa

AFTERNOON TEA – Veggie dippers & wholemeal pita bread served with hummus dip

LATE SNACK – Seasonal fruit with cheese & rice crackers
