Only About Children Camberwell is a modern kindergarten and childcare designed specifically for early years education. Each age groups has their own dedicated outdoor yard where children can confidently lead their own play, explore and create. We encourage shared age play and our Kinder children often join in safe play with our toddlers, within their groups. We have nine age-based indoor rooms. These spaces have been specifically created to encourage children in their learning and growth, with a focus on safety and natural elements. Our Kinder age children have three rooms that they utilise each day – a construction room, a numeracy and literacy room and an art studio. We also have a private parents conference room.

We have a dedicated team of multilingual Educators who are fluent in over 9 languages including Mandarin, Hindi, French, Greek, Cantonese, Japanese, Spanish, Filipino an English. Our children are very active in the community. They enjoy excursions and activities that feed into their interests and learning.
