Newport Childcare & Preschool

Rated as ‘Exceeding’ by the National Quality Standard, our Newport Campus is committed to providing the best care for every child in a nurturing environment.

Campus Overview

Only About Children Newport has three outdoor play spaces, each dedicated to a different age-group so that the children have plenty of room to lead their own play through adventure, exploration and creativity. We have an abundance of great resources outside, including sandpits, forts, other climbing equipment and vegetable gardens. Our six indoor spaces are specifically 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 activities that build on the children’s learning and interests. At Only About Children childcare Newport, these include regular walks to Newport Lakes where the ranger meets us. Here our children get to explore the lake and the wildlife. We also enjoy visits, from within the local community, that further develop our children’s interests and education.  With a team of qualified and passionate Educators at Only About Children Newport, your child will find an early learning environment where they feel safe, nurtured, stimulated and happy. Our educational curriculum – Oac Grow – gives Nursery and Kindergarten children the best opportunity to develop their growing minds, with programs ranging from literacy and numeracy to exploration, technology, creative expression and sustainability. Each day your child will participate in our fun, inclusive programs ranging from our enriching Music Program, to ‘Book of the Month’ and our ‘Spanish Language Appreciation’ and ‘Active’ programs.
