My 2yo daughter is 3 months in to starting at Only About Children in Asquith and we are so happy. She has settled in well with the help of the great educators and in such a short time have seen her grow in her language skills - especially her singing! It’s a great centre, with a massive undercover outdoor area and food menu, but mostly it’s the solid, welcoming, caring, genuine and consistent team working there, which is why we love it so much. It’s not only important for my daughter but for me, knowing she is happy and being looked after so well! Thank you to the team for all you do everyday!

When looking for childcare for my 1 year old it was essential to me that she went somewhere with a curriculum that starts from nursery age. OAC ticks all the boxes, she has settled in fantastically and I am thrilled that their programs flow through to Preschool so I won’t need to move her in the future.We are also huge fans of the daily report via the app showing all the skills she been working on while having fun during the day.

My boys had a marvellous time during their time in OAC! The teachers got to know their personalities, strengths & weaknesses and created an environment for them to thrive in. It always smelled so amazing walking into the centre with the chef cooking up another one of his delicious dishes! Admin staff are also always so kind and helpful. Thank you OAC for caring for my boys so wonderfully. We will surely miss you! Come follow us in Tassie!

I can't recommend OAC Asquith highly enough. We love the OAC brand programming, and the director and educators are so enthusiastic and caring, really seeking to know and support the kids to have the best experience possible. The indoor and outdoor spaces are expansive and very stimulating for the kids' development.

My daughter attends OAC Asquith and we are very happy with the educators and the management.It is a beautiful centre with the huge lush green undercover playground area. Kids can enjoy and play around even if it is raining. The wide and spacious car park makes the drop off and pick ups convenient. The centre is clean and tidy with in-house chef preparing healthy and delicious meals.The educators are wonderful and are passionate about their job. Can’t thank them enough for the work they are doing!!Mel is great at managing the overall operations especially communications. A big shout out to Surya - Assistant Director who ensures smooth functioning of the centre. I have seen her helping out the educators when they need a hand and also assisting parents with their queries. With always a smile on her face, Surya provides friendly atmosphere at daycare.

Only About Children Asquith has been fantastic. The teachers and staff are amazing and my son has blossomed since attending this centre. His confidence has grown and he has grown up so much. I highly recommend this centre - they go above and beyond. Thank you.

Our daughter attends here and loves it. The staff are professional, caring and friendly, and the centre director Mel is a great asset to the team - always happy to have a chat, to take on board feedback and queries, and to resolve issues (not that we've had any major ones).

My son adores Little Learning School Asquith, and so do we!!The carers are amazing, friendly and give a great rundown of my sons day everytime we pick him up. Most importantly he loves his daycare days, the acticties they do, his friends & carers.We also love the big undercover outside area, meaning there is still plenty of outside play even if the weather is not perfect. Family events are run regularily (Christams Party, Easter hat parade, grandparents day, etc) and are always fun for everyone who attends.Mel is always soo helpful, and happy to accomodate a casual day at last minute if she can.We would not go anywhere else.
