Berwick Childcare & Preschool

Explore our Berwick childcare campus and learn how our programs and inclusions can help your child reach their full potential!

Campus Overview

At Only About Children Berwick, we have a dedicated outdoor play area partly undercover that includes a large sandpit, a herb garden, a vegetable patch, natural climbing equipment and a large spacious grass area. There is ample space available for self-lead play, adventure and exploration. Our three age-based indoor spaces are specifically 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 connecting with our local community through planned excursions and community activities that feed into the children’s interests and learning. At Only About Children childcare Berwick, these include regular visits to the local library, supermarket and fire station. 

You will find a team of qualified and passionate Educators at our Berwick early learning centre,  ready to provide a safe, stimulating, happy and nurturing space for your child. Our Oac Grow educational curriculum directly supports Nursery and Kindergarten aged children through the development of their growing minds. Each day, your child will take part in 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.
