We take a holistic approach to childcare at Only About Children Leichhardt Norton Plaza. We provide high quality early learning, through innovative programs, with a focus on early years education, health and wellbeing. Through this integrated approach, we believe every child is given the best opportunity to reach their full potential.
Our purpose-built Campus is located within Norton Plaza, on level two of the Business Centre, 55 Norton Street, and is just down the road from Palace Norton. With a number of local parks and reserves within walking distance, and many local cafes, there is plenty of life surrounding our Leichhardt childcare centre! With ample undercover parking in the Plaza and designated parking available, families can enjoy an efficient drop off and pick up every visit. We are located a short two-minute walk from the Plaza entrance to bus stops nearby that have frequent services to the city. Our closest train station is Petersham Station, which is a 15-20-minute walk.
With three dedicated outdoor play areas – featuring sandpits, a large bike track with bikes and scooters and an edible garden – children can enjoy creating, exploring and leading their own play. Our six age-based indoor spaces have been specifically designed to encourage children to learn and grow with a focus on safety and natural elements.
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 Leichhardt Norton childcare centre these include regular trips to Leichhardt Forum, the local library, fire station, nursing home, cafes, local parks and more. We invite local community members, such as storytellers and Indigenous elders, to share with our children on a regular basis.
When your child is enrolled at Only About Children childcare Leichhardt, 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.
With a team of qualified and passionate Educators at our Leichhardt early learning centre, your child will find an early learning environment where they feel safe, nurtured, stimulated and happy. Our educational curriculum – Oac Grow – gives nursery and preschool children the best opportunity to develop their growing minds, with programs ranging from literacy and numeracy to exploration, technology, creative expression and sustainability. Each day your child will participate in our fun, inclusive programs ranging from our enriching Music Program, to ‘Book of the Month’ and our ‘Spanish Language Appreciation’ and ‘Active’ programs.
With an innovative play-based curriculum we stand out by delivering intentional teaching in dynamic small group learning environments where children’s successes, skills and challenges are monitored on an ongoing basis.

“My 3 year old can’t wait to get to Only About Children each day. She comes home with a big smile on her face, looking happy, healthy and energised. Her Educators are lovely! We love how much she has grown and learned during her time here.”
