Campus Overview

At Only About Children Tarneit, we believe that our holistic approach to childcare and kindergarten gives every child the greatest opportunity to reach their full potential. Our quality early learning programs are innovative, with a focus on health, wellbeing and education. 

Our purpose-built Campus is located at 19-25 Turva Ave, Tarniet, next to Penrose Community Centre where they have a maternal and child health nurse facility and regular council-run educational programs. Tarneit Gardens Shopping Centre is a five-minute walk away, along with a number of sports ovals, parks and playgrounds. Our local train station is 2km away and our nearby schools are Tarneit P-9 College and Tarneit Rise Primary School. With 26 parking spaces onsite, families can enjoy a smooth drop off and pick up every visit.  

With a large outdoor play area, separated into two yards, children have plenty of space to explore, create and play. Our children enjoy sandpits, planter boxes and barrels (where we grow our own produce and participate in ‘playground to plate’ learning) and shade sails, there is plenty of opportunity and space for adventure and development. Both our indoor and outdoor environments are aesthetically pleasing, with a focus on using natural and recycled materials. Our eight age-based indoor rooms are designed to encourage children in their learning and growth. We love to connect with our local area and community through excursions and activities that feed into children’s interests and learning. At Only About Children childcare Tarneit, these include regular trips to the park and Woolworths. 

As part of their enrolment at Only About Children childcare Tarneit, children have access to our Health Program, with specialist screening and support in Occupational Therapy, Speech Pathology, Vision and Nutrition. Our dietitian-designed seasonal menus are prepared daily by our Cooks, from breakfast through to evening snack so your child is well-nourished throughout their day, every day. 

In our Tarneit early learning centre you’ll find a team of passionate and qualified Educators ready to help your child feel safe, stimulated, nurtured and happy. Our educational curriculum, Oac Grow, specifically supports the development of growing minds in Nursery, Preschool and Kindergarten aged children. We cover numeracy and literacy, technology, creative expression, exploration and sustainability. Every day, 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.
