At Only About Children Moonee Ponds, we take a holistic approach to childcare and kindergarten. Our innovative programs provide 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.
Our purpose-built Campus is located on Level 1, /767 Mt Alexander Road, Moonee Ponds, and close to both Moonee Ponds Primary and Essendon Primary School. We are a nine-minute walk from Essendon Station and have a public bus stop right outside our building, with regular bus services available. With undercover parking provided, families can plan for a smooth drop off and pick up every visit.
Our Campus has a large outdoor area that wraps around the front and side of the building. With two yards available, there is dedicated space for nursery babies to explore safely and ample room for adventure and play amongst our Preschool and Kinder children. The outdoor area features a bike track, large climbing area situated over soft fall, mud patch and sand pits, worm farms, composting bins, water trough and large black boards. Both yards have embedded ‘Playground to Plate’ sensory gardens with a variety of edible plants for children to explore and maintain with Marie, our garden educator. Our seven age-based indoor spaces are designed to encourage children to learn and grow with a focus on safety and natural elements. We enjoy connecting with our local community through planned excursions and community activities that build on the children’s interests and learning. We run a Nature Play Program at Napier Park in Strathmore during term 2 and 3.
Access to our Health Program is inclusive of your child’s enrolment at Only About Children childcare Moonee Ponds. 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.
You will find a team of qualified and passionate Educators at our Moonee Ponds 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.
