Campus Overview

Our purpose-built Campus is located at 219-241 Cleveland Street, with the wonderful Prince Alfred Park just across the street. Redfern Station is a short 10-minute walk in one direction and Central Train Station and the light rail, with connections across the wider Sydney, a 10-12-minute walk in the other. Buses also depart from the side and front of the building. We offer both indoor and outdoor parking onsite, along with a pram bay, so families can be sure of a smooth drop off and pick up every visit. There are three local primary schools and the newly built Inner City High School within the local area. 

Flexi Care (occasional care) is available at our Redfern Campus.

We have a large simulated outdoor playground and a smaller real outdoor yard with all outdoor equipment. Children can navigate through an obstacle course challenge in the ballpit and sandpit and develop their gross motor skills through bike riding with a state-of-the-art track, offering many sensory experiences. The outdoor area also caters for engaging and creative experiences with a large gardening area for herbs, vegetables and fruits, including beautiful plants and small trees. We offer a separate outdoor area for our nursery children, to ensure that our smallest are protected in their own space. Our five age-based indoor spaces are designed to encourage children to learn and grow with a focus on safety and natural elements. 

We enjoy connecting with our local community through planned excursions and community activities that build on the children’s interests and learning. At Only About Children childcare Redfern, these include regular trips to our local park.
