We take a holistic approach to childcare and kindergarten at Only About Children Armadale. We provide quality early learning, through innovative programs, with a focus on early years education, health and wellbeing. Through this integrated approach, we believe every child is given the best opportunity to reach their full potential.
We use the Kinder Tick at Only About Children Armadale because we’re an approved provider of a Victorian Government funded kindergarten program. That means our service delivers a play-based learning program, led by a qualified early childhood teacher.
Our two-level Campus is situated in a gorgeous renovated church at 30 Kooyong Rd, Armadale, on the corner of St Georges Road and Koorong Road. Our early learning centre is conveniently situated between Armadale Station and Malvern East Station, with Armadale Station just a four-minute walk away. There are a number of local parks and playgrounds in the area. We have both onsite parking and street parking available, so families can enjoy a simple drop off and pick up every visit. We have several local bus stops just a short walk away, with services connecting to the wider area.
With three dedicated outdoor learning environments, each specifically designed to cater for Nursery, Toddler and Kindergarten years, children have plenty of stimulating space to explore, create and lead their own play. Our children can enjoy sandpits, a wooden fort with a slide, rocky riverbeds and a mister for the warmer months. All areas are shaded or partly shaded with a beautiful big tree providing an element of natural shading. Our six indoor spaces are designed to encourage children to grow and learn, at their age and stage of development, in a secure ‘home away from home’ environment. We love to connect with our local area and community through excursions and activities that feed into children’s interests and learning. At Only About Children childcare Armadale, these include fun train trips with our older children, to a variety of local places and visits to local parks, the nursery and Malvern Central with our younger ones.
As part of their enrolment at Only About Children childcare Armadale, children have access to our specialised Health Program, with screening and support in Vision and Nutrition, Occupational Therapy and Speech Pathology. 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.
With a team of qualified and passionate Educators, your child will find an early learning environment where they feel safe, nurtured, stimulated and happy. Our educational curriculum – Oac Grow – gives Nursery and Kindergarten children the best opportunity to develop their growing minds, with programs ranging from literacy and numeracy to exploration, technology, creative expression and sustainability. Each day your child will participate in our fun, inclusive programs ranging from our enriching Music Program, to ‘Book of the Month’ and our ‘Spanish Language Appreciation’ and ‘Active’ programs.
With an innovative play-based curriculum we stand out by delivering intentional teaching in dynamic small group learning environments where children’s successes, skills and challenges are monitored on an ongoing basis.
