Campus Overview

At Only About Children McDowall, we believe that our holistic approach to childcare and kindergarten gives every child the greatest opportunity to reach their full potential. Our quality early learning programs are innovative, with a focus on health, wellbeing and education. 

Our purpose-built single-level Campus is located at 1035 Rode Road,, just across the street from McDowall State School and close to several local parks. With plenty of onsite parking available, families can be confident of a safe and smooth drop off and pick up every visit. A frequent bus service runs through the bus stop less than a minute’s walk down the road. 

With three dedicated outdoor play areas – including a slide, climbing wall, mud pit, sandpits, compost and worm farm – children have plenty of space to explore, create and lead their own play. Our six age-based indoor spaces are designed to encourage children to learn and grow, at their age and stage of development, in a secure ‘home away from home’ environment. We enjoy getting out into our local community through planned excursions and community activities that build on our educational curriculum and the children’s interests. At Only About Children childcare McDowall, these include trips to our local school and organised shows onsite. 

When your child is enrolled at Only About Children McDowall, they are included in our Health Program, offering specialist screening and support in Nutrition, Vision, Occupational Therapy and Speech Pathology. Each day your child will enjoy nourishing and freshly prepared, seasonal, meals designed by a qualified Dietitian. 

You will find a team of qualified and passionate Educators at our McDowall kindergarten and early learning centre,  ready to provide a safe, stimulating, happy and nurturing space for your child. Our Oac Grow educational curriculum directly supports Nursery, Preschool and Kindergarten aged children through the development of their growing minds. Your child will enjoy a range of experiences that cover teachings from numeracy and literacy, to exploration, technology, sustainability and creative expression. We provide a learning environment that is both fun and inclusive, with programs ranging from our ‘Active’ program, to a fun ‘Book of the Month’ offering, as well as our Music program and our ‘Spanish Language Appreciation’ program. 

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

What our families are saying

We have recommended the centre to several of our friends when they’ve considered moving. The days are more structured, the carers are amazing and the centre itself is perfectly set up for exploring minds.
