We take a holistic approach to childcare and kindergarten at Only About Children Balwyn North. 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 Balwyn North 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 purpose-built two-level Campus is conveniently located at 135 Greythorn Road, Balwyn North, on the corner of Greythorn Road and Yeneda Street, right opposite Greythorn Primary School and a 10-minute walk from Greythorn Park. There are several parks and reserves in the surrounding area. With underground parking available, families can be sure of a smooth drop off and pick up every visit. A public bus route runs along our road with bus stops a short walk away.
With three dedicated outdoor play spaces, featuring sandpits and climbing equipment, children have plenty of space to explore, create and lead their own play. Each space is dedicated to a different age group with designated areas for Nursery, Toddler and Kinder children. Our five age-based indoor spaces have been specifically created to encourage children in their learning and growth, with a focus on safety and natural elements. 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 Balwyn North, these include regular trips to our local shops, parks and primary school. We enjoy hosting visits with teachers from the primary school as part of our School Readiness Program.
When your child is enrolled at Only About Children childcare Balwyn, 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.
At our Balwyn kindergarten centre we believe that our Educators are our greatest strength. They are qualified and passionate about creating an early learning environment where your child can feel happy, nurtured, stimulated and safe. We support the development of growing minds, in Nursery and Kindergarten aged children, through our educational curriculum – Oac Grow. Our programs focus on exploration, technology, literacy and numeracy, sustainability and creative expression. Your child will be a part of our enriching Music Program, our ‘Active’ Program and our ‘Book of the Month’ and ‘Spanish Language Appreciation’. All of our teachings are offered in an inclusive, fun environment.
Our innovative play-based curriculum allows Only About Children to stand out from the crowd with intentional teaching in small group learning environments where we track children’s successes, skills and challenges regularly.
