Campus Overview

Only About Children Balwyn North is a warm and inviting childcare centre 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. 

At our Balwyn North kindergarten 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.
