We love everything about OAC Artarmon. Here are just a few of the reasons why we happily recommend and rave about OAC to anyone who'll listen:- all the educators genuinely love what they do and show great love and care for the children, as well as endless positive energy- a lot of thought and preparation goes into the daily care of the children, with a tremendous variety offered in terms of healthy food options, educational games and activities, and inclusive education- we love the interactive communication platforms such as the StoryPark app with almost daily updates and photos, so we feel involved and engaged in our child's progress- the ever-changing menu is so impressive, and we love that our child is being exposed to such a variety of foods to help expand her palate- the facilities at Artarmon are fantastic and always immaculately clean (how do you manage this so well??) and we love that the toys and activities are arranged in a manner that the kids can focus on one activity at a time, to maximise the learning from that activity

OAC have been outstanding in every aspect of care for our daughter. The educators have a fantastic relationship with the children and it is evident they genuinely love their job. Their positive attitude, passion, and dedication to ensuring they offer a safe, fun, and creative environment for the children is why we chose OAC Artarmon. We love the large outdoor facilities, the organic food offered, the importance placed on its curriculum, and the fact they are exceeding the National standards in almost every area. We especially love the daily updates we get on the Storypark app. I rave about OAC to anyone who asks and highly recommend them to families!

My 19 month old has been going to LLS Artarmon since he was 10 months old. He has developed great relationships with most of the educators at LLS, and they all know his name, even if they arent from his room. All the educators are patient and caring. The range of healthy, fresh food, and the many different activities the kids get to do are great. We are very happy with our experience with LLS Artarmon.
