What is Oac Grow?

Our play-based Oac Grow curriculum is unique and innovative. We deliver intentional teaching in dynamic small group learning environments. This is where we differ from other early learning programs. Our small group environments allow us to monitor your child’s successes, skills and challenges on an ongoing basis.

Our Oac Grow curriculum is designed by our dedicated in-house Health, Music, Curriculum, Language and Sports Physiology teams. We have developed this in conjunction with the Early Years Learning Framework. Together, we deliver innovative early learning programs that are all-inclusive in our fee. Children learn daily through our Oac Music, Oac Active, Oac Nutrition, Oac Language and Book of the Month programs.

 

Our programs:

Igniting a passion for music

We believe that music is a key part of life. Through our Oac Music program we help your child to understand and appreciate tempo, timbre and pitch. We also encourage children to participate in music through movement. Our children explore music daily, whether it’s through song, music or dance.

 

Active play

Our Oac Active program is designed by a qualified Sports Science Physiologist, in consultation with our in-house Oac Health team. It helps children learn important gross motor skills, which are fundamental to many areas of learning. Through Oac Active children improve their strength, endurance, flexibility, balance and co-ordination in a fun and inclusive environment.

 

Helping little minds and bodies grow

We passionately believe that good nutrition plays a vital role in a child’s physical and mental development in early childhood. As a result, every child in our care enjoys nutritious Dietitian designed meals prepared daily by our cook. Further to this, we encourage children to learn about nutrition through our Fruit of the Month and Vegetable of the Month.

 

Loving language

A child’s brain is primed for language during the first few years of life. So we have developed a Spanish Language program for our Toddlers and Preschool / Kinder children. The benefits of this program go well beyond language! For example, it is normal to see literacy, verbal and mathematical skills enhanced, creativity increased and problem-solving skills improved.

 

Sharing stories

We introduce your child to the wonderful world of language and literature through our ‘Book of the Month’ program. Each month we choose a new book title and explore the text, illustrations and ideas. We link the themes of this book to other areas of our integrated curriculum.

 

 

At Only About Children we are about more than childcare!

We are a place for your child to learn and grow, with more programs and more inclusions each day. Our early learning Oac Grow program is specially designed to give your child the best start to life. Because of this, we have developed a holistic approach that covers music, active play, nutrition, language and storytelling.
