Early Childhood Cook
The Only About Children Nutrition program includes a 4 week rotating seasonal menu that meets children’s needs, taking into account nutritional and energy requirements as well as cultural and health needs. Each Oac campus has their own cook who works in a modern on-site, state of the art kitchen, to freshly prepare all of the children’s delicious meals. At Only About Children, we serve 5 meals each day including breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and a late snack.
