Health, Wellbeing & Nutrition | Only About Children

Health Program

We offer a holistic approach to your child’s development, which means we encompass not just the education, but the physical health and emotional wellbeing of every child in our care.

What makes our innovative health program so unique?

Our Health program is designed and delivered by our dedicated in-house team of Dietitians, Occupational Therapists, Speech Pathologists and Vision Specialists. Our team are here to support families through information workshops at our campuses and individual consultations. These exclusive services are all-inclusive within your daily fee.

Nutritious meals

We passionately believe that good early childhood nutrition plays a vital role in a child’s physical and mental development. In fact, did you know most children form lifelong eating patterns by the time they reach school age?

Our children’s nutrition program is designed by our in-house Dietitians and includes a rotating seasonal menu with all meals prepared daily by our campus cooks. Our menus consider the nutritional, cultural and health requirements of every child.

Let's get physical

Physical confidence and being active is important to every child’s self-esteem and wellbeing. Developed by our specialist Exercise Science and Human Movement program manager, our unique Active program helps children learn important gross motor skills, and a love of physical activity. Through our program, children improve their hand eye coordination, balance, flexibility, fitness, motor planning and body awareness.

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.

“As busy working parents, we love that our daughter receives all of her meals and snacks at Oac. It gives us peace of mind knowing that she is enjoying nutritious food and it also offers us convenience as we don’t worry about packing a lunchbox for her each day”
