Campus Overview

We take a holistic approach to childcare and kindergarten at Only About Children Southbank. We believe that every child is given the greatest opportunity to reach their full potential through innovative quality early learning programs, with a focus on education, health and wellbeing. 

Our multi-level Campus is located on the 8th floor of 4 Freshwater Palce, Southbank, a premium apartment building in a unique location on the banks of the Yarra River, and opposite the Melbourne CBD. The National Gallery of Victoria and the Melbourne Art Centre are both only an 8-12-minute walk away. With pass-access onsite parking available, families can enjoy a convenient drop off and pick up every visit. Public transport is in abundance at our Southbank early learning centre. We are close to Flinders Street Station and local tram stops and bus stops, with plenty of services going to and from the Melbourne CBD. 

With three dedicated outdoor areas, each with its own unique age-appropriate structures, children have plenty of space to engage in exploring, creating and leading their own play. Our seven age-based indoor spaces, including dedicated playscape, 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 community activities that build on the children’s interests and learning. At Only About Children childcare Southbank, these include regular walks to our various local attractions. 

Access to our Health Program is inclusive of your child’s enrolment at Only About Children childcare Southbank. 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 Southbank 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.
