Ferny Hills Childcare & Kindergarten

Rated as ‘Exceeding’ by the National Quality Standard, our Ferny Hills Campus is committed to providing the best care for every child in a nurturing environment.

Campus Overview

Only About Children Ferny Hills is a warm and inviting childcare centre with four separate, dedicated outdoor play areas with lots of space for adventure and self-lead play. Our children love to look after our worm farm, vegetable garden and compost bin in their very own learning garden. Our natural outdoor play spaces include a large timber fort with a slide and climbing wall. Our six age-based indoor spaces are cosy and homelike. They cater for nursery children right through to kindergarten ages and are specifically designed to encourage children to learn and grow with a focus on safety and natural elements. We enjoy connecting with our local community through planned excursions and community activities that build on the children’s interests and learning.  

As part of their enrolment at Only About Children childcare Ferny Hills, children gain access to our Health Program, with specialist screening and support in Speech Pathology, Occupational Therapy, Vision and Nutrition. Our dietitian-designed seasonal menus are prepared daily by our Cooks, from breakfast through to evening snack so your child is well-nourished throughout their day, every day. 

In our Ferny Hills kindergarten and early learning centre you will find a team of qualified and passionate Educators ready to help your child feel happy, safe, stimulated and nurtured. Our educational curriculum, known as Oac Grow, specifically supports the development of growing minds in Nursery, Preschool and Kindergarten aged children. We cover technology, numeracy and literacy, creative expression, exploration and sustainability. Every day, your child will take part in a range of experiences exclusive to Only About Children. We deliver teaching 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. 

Our play-based curriculum allows us to deliver considered teaching in dynamic small group learning environments where we continuously monitor children’s challenges, successes and skills.
