Campus overview

At Only About Children Fairlight 1, we take a holistic approach to childcare. Our innovative programs provide high quality early learning with a focus on early years education, health and wellbeing. We believe this integrated approach gives every child the best opportunity to reach their full potential. 

Our purpose-built two-level Campus is situated at 290 Balgowlah Road, in the heart of Fairlight, and right opposite Manly Golf Club. We have two early learning preschool centres operating out of the same building. We enjoy being within walking distance of several reserves and playgrounds with the renowned Manly Beach only a 20-minute walk or a five-seven-minute drive away. With plenty of onsite parking and street parking available, families can enjoy a smooth drop off and pick up every visit. We are located near public transport with bus stops nearby that connect to the wider area just outside our door. We are close to several local schools, including Manly West Public, Balgowlah Heights Public, Manly Village Public, St Kieran’s Catholic School and St Cecilia’s Catholic School.  

With two dedicated outdoor play areas – offering bike tracks, vegetable gardens and large sandpits – children have plenty of space to run around, lead their own play and explore their creativity. Our six age-based indoor spaces are specifically designed with natural elements in mind. They are set up to encourage children to learn and grow, safely. At our Fairlight childcare centre, we enjoy connecting with our local community through planned excursions and community activities that build on the children’s curriculum and interests. 

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

At our Fairlight early learning centre you will find a team of qualified and passionate Educators ready to help your child feel stimulated, safe, nurtured and happy. Our educational curriculum, known as Oac Grow, specifically supports the development of growing minds in Nursery and Preschool 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.
