At Only About Children Freshwater, we believe that our holistic approach to childcare provides every child the best 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 120 Oliver Street and only a three-minute drive to Freshwater Beach and Curl Curl Beach, or a 12-minute drive to Dee Why Beach. With plenty of onsite parking, families can enjoy a smooth drop off and pick up every visit. We are a short walk to nearby bus stops that connect to the wider area in both directions. We are close to Harbord Primary School and Curl Curl North Primary School with a number of parks and playgrounds in the local area.
With three dedicated outdoor play areas, including a preschool yard, a nursery and toddler yard and a Secret Garden, children are excited to explore, discover and lead their own play. Our outdoor areas feature a bike track, slide and climbing mountain, sandpits, a cubby house and outdoor verandahs. All areas have shading. Our beloved Secret Garden is a hands-on vegetable and herb garden featuring a dirt patch and a worm farm!
Our six age-based indoor rooms are specifically designed to encourage children to learn and grow with a focus on safety and natural elements. We love to connect with our local area and community through excursions and activities that feed into children’s interests and learning. At our Freshwater childcare centre these include exploration of our local natural environment with a focus on the sea, bird and insect life and shells. Our Secret Garden provides sensory experiences, where children learn how to protect and respect the land.
When your child is enrolled at Only About Children childcare Freshwater, they are included in our innovative Health Program, with specialist screening and ongoing support in Nutrition, Speech Pathology, Occupational Therapy and Vision. They will enjoy a nourishing seasonal menu, designed by a qualified Dietitian and prepared by our Cooks each day.
You will find a team of qualified and passionate Educators at our Freshwater 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.
