At Only About Children Highett, our children enjoy plenty of outdoor play space with dedicated areas for our Nursery, Toddler and Kinder children. Our seven age-based indoor spaces are specifically designed to encourage children to learn and grow with a focus on safety and natural elements. The main kitchen is designed for children to interact with our Cook and take part in cooking experiences.
At our Highett early learning centre you will find a team of qualified and passionate Educators ready to help your child feel stimulated, safe, nurtured and happy. Our educational curriculum, known as Oac Grow, specifically supports the development of growing minds in Nursery and Kindergarten aged children.

Our teaching is delivered in a fun, inclusive environment, with programs ranging from ‘Book of the Month’ to our enriching Music program and our ‘Spanish Language Appreciation’ program. Our ‘Active’ program helps children learn gross motor skills and improve their strength, endurance, flexibility, balance and coordination.
