Campus Overview

We take a holistic approach to childcare and kindergarten at Only About Children Newport. We provide quality early learning, through innovative programs, with a focus on early years education, health and wellbeing. Through this integrated approach, we believe every child is given the best opportunity to reach their full potential. 

Our purpose-built Campus is located  at 82-84 Blackshaws Road, Newport, on the corner of Blackshaws Road and Sutton Street, and just a three-minute walk from our local bus stops. Newport Station is threeminute drive or an 18-minute walk in the other direction. The gorgeous Newport Lakes Reserve, an expansive park area with picnic areas, playground and water features, is only a 10-minute walk away. Our closest schools are Spotswood Primary School and Newport Lakes Primary School. With plenty of onsite parking, families can be sure of a smooth drop off and pick up every visit.  

With three outdoor play spaces, each dedicated to a different age-group, 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.  

When your child is enrolled at Only About Children childcare Newport, they are included in our innovative Health Program, with specialist screening and ongoing support in Nutrition, Speech Pathology, Occupational Therapy and Vision. They will enjoy a nourishing seasonal menu, designed by a qualified Dietitian and prepared by our Cooks each day. 

With a team of qualified and passionate Educators, 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. 

With an innovative play-based curriculum we stand out by delivering intentional teaching in dynamic small group learning environments where children’s successes, skills and challenges are monitored on an ongoing basis.
