I’m so glad I chose Only about children Leichhardt. I adore the team! Sarah the manager knows everyone and is consistently very friendly, warm and keep us updated with an open communication. So important as a parent to feel comfortable with all the educators and I feel that way about the nursery. I also respect and feel grateful of the fact that most of the ladies in the nursery are moms. Also the events held for the kids and parents are so well thought of and well executed. Thank you team so much for looking after our kids and keeping them safe and well. Keep up the great work. I know Luca is growing and learning lots when he’s there.

Both children have been attending OAC since they were 12 months old, and as a family we are so grateful for the team at Leichhardt. Our son has now moved onto Kindergarten and our daughter has journeyed through to the Preschool room. The attention, care, love and support our children have received is the very reason we have stayed at OAC. They have excelled and developed in their learning, and the educators are passionate about their roles. Thank you to Sarah, Pam, Yessica, Rachel, Nathan, Anu, Abby, Louise, Caitlin - even when Aria moves on we will never forget you all.

My children have been going here for 5 years starting from 6 months of age until starting school. We have no complaints. The educators are caring, the food is excellent and the pre school program is great for school preparation.

Wow what a lovely Director Mary and Pamela. They are so kind and very responsive. Can see lots of proper value systems developing and getting established with the new Director. She is very professional and does not wait until someone does the job when needed. She is very dynamic and quite active. The Toddler two staff are wonderful, friendly and cooperative. Thank you for an amazing teamwork and an effort in a daily conduct. Awesome place to work.
