We take a holistic approach to childcare and kindergarten at Only About Children Cheltenham. We provide high quality early learning, through innovative programs, with a focus on health, wellbeing and early years education. 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 Cheltenham 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 gorgeous purpose-built Campus is located at 15 Herald Street, Cheltenham. Made up of two buildings, crafted and designed by a Melbourne-based boutique architecture and design consultancy, we are nestled into quiet streets with local native flora and fauna surrounding us. We are right next door to Cheltenham East Primary School and a short walk to Le Page Primary School. With dedicated onsite car parking, including disability access, families can be confident of a smooth and safe drop off and pick up every visit. We are a short walk to public transport and Centre Dandenong Road with regular bus services operating. Moorabbin Airport is a five-eight-minute drive in one direction and the City of Kingston Council Offices a five-minute drive in the other.
With three dedicated outdoor play areas, one each for Nursery, Toddler and Kindergarten aged children, there is lots of active space for creativity and exploration. We have sandpits, raised gardens filled with herbs, lemon trees and native flora, balance-bridges, specially designed undulating turf surfaces, a river stream and a worm farm! Our indoor spaces are all age-based and designed to encourage children’s learning and development, with a focus on safety and natural elements. We love connecting with our local community through activities and planned excursions that build on the children’s interests and learning. At Only About Children childcare Cheltenham, these include road safety education with visits to the school crossing in preparation for school readiness.
Access to our Health Program is inclusive of your child’s enrolment at Only About Children childcare Cheltenham. This innovative program includes specialist screening and support in Speech Pathology, Occupational Therapy, Nutrition and Vision. Our nourishing daily meals are also included in enrolment. Your child will enjoy a seasonal menu, designed by a Dietitian and prepared fresh each day by onsite cooks.
At our Cheltenham childcare 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.
