Castle Hill Childcare & Preschool

Explore our Castle Hill childcare campus and learn how our programs and inclusions can help your child reach their full potential!

Campus Overview

Only About Children Castle Hill childcare centre has two large outdoor play areas, so children have plenty of space to explore, create and lead their own play. Each dedicated area has its own sandpit and vegetable garden and sits under both natural and man-made shade. Our preschool playground is home to resident chickens which the children are encouraged to care for. Our children love to recycle food scraps for our chickens, worms and compost bins! Our five age-based indoor spaces are designed, with natural elements, to encourage children to learn and grow.  

We enjoy getting out into our local community through planned excursions and community activities that build on our educational curriculum and the children’s interests. At our Castle Hill childcare centre these include visits to our neighbouring Fire Brigade and supervised exploration of our large rural property. We host many community events including chicken hatching, STEM activities, reptile shows, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day functions as well as our annual Christmas Party and graduation ceremony for our school leavers. 

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