Campus Overview

Only About Children Penrith is an early learning centre with two dedicated outdoor play areas, offering an array of opportunities for interactions with the natural world. Both spaces are resourced with vegetable gardens, flower bed gardens and vast shaded areas, covered naturally with mature trees and shade sails. Children have plenty of space to create, explore and lead their own play. Our six age-based indoor spaces have been designed to encourage children to learn and grow with a focus on safety and natural elements. Our children participate in explorative excursions and community connections within the local community. 

We enjoy connecting with our local community through planned outings and community activities that build on the children’s interests and learning. We regularly go for walks to the nearby park and examine the natural and man-made features of the local area. Our children enjoy visiting the surrounding businesses, building partnerships and learning from the various services our community has to offer.

Your child is supported through specialist screening and ongoing attention in Speech Pathology, Nutrition, Vision and Occupational Therapy. We provide daily nutritious dietitian-designed meals, prepared fresh by our cooks, from breakfast through to evening snack, so your child is well-nourished through their entire day.
