At Only About Children Highett, we take a holistic approach to childcare and kindergarten. Our innovative programs provide high quality early learning with a focus on early years education, health and wellbeing. We believe this integrated approach gives every child the best opportunity to reach their full potential.
We use the Kinder Tick at Only About Children Highett 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 two-level, purpose-built Campus is conveniently located at 491 Highett Road, Highett, a short walk to Highett Station and bus interchange and just across the road from our local Woolworths. We have a number of Primary Schools and reserves in the area. With covered parking, pram storage and lift access available, families can be sure of a simple and secure drop off and pick up, with each visit.
Our children enjoy plenty of outdoor play space with dedicated areas for our Nursery, Toddler and Kinder children. Toddlers have planter boxes for growing vegetables and our Kinder space has a bike track. Our seven age-based indoor spaces are specifically designed to encourage children to learn and grow with a focus on safety and natural elements. The main kitchen is designed for children to interact with our Cook and take part in cooking experiences.
We enjoy connecting with our local community through planned excursions and activities that build on the children’s interests and learning. We plan trips to Woolworths and other local businesses, and we have a great connection with St Agnes’ Primary, where our children enjoy regular visits throughout the year. We also experience natural environments by visiting local parks.
When your child is enrolled at Only About Children childcare Highett, 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 Highett early learning centre you will find a team of qualified and passionate Educators ready to help your child feel stimulated, safe, nurtured and happy. Our educational curriculum, known as Oac Grow, specifically supports the development of growing minds in Nursery and Kindergarten aged children. We cover numeracy and literacy, technology, creative expression, exploration and sustainability. Your child will take part in a range of experiences exclusive to Only About Children. Our teaching is delivered in a fun, inclusive environment, with programs ranging from ‘Book of the Month’ to our enriching Music program and our ‘Spanish Language Appreciation’ program. Our ‘Active’ program helps children learn gross motor skills and improve their strength, endurance, flexibility, balance and coordination.
Our play-based curriculum allows us to deliver considered teaching in dynamic small group learning environments where we regularly monitor children’s challenges, successes and skills.
