Campus Overview

Only About Children Rhodes, ran by Campus Director Susanna Chen for the last 9 years, is a warm and inviting childcare centre with two incredible outdoor learning environments. These outdoor spaces, separated for nursery and toddler children (0-3 years) and preschool children (3-6 years), encourage engaging and creative experiences. Our younger children have a sandpit, curve hill and garden beds, whilst our preschoolers have a bike track, sandpit, cubby house, deck and garden beds. Our children love to enjoy the fruit, vegetables and flowers of their own gardens! Our 10 age-based indoor spaces are designed to encourage children to learn and grow, at their age and stage of development, in a secure ‘home away from home’ environment.  

We enjoy connecting with our local community through planned excursions and community visits that build on the children’s interests and learning. At Only About Children childcare Rhodes, these include regular trips to our local shopping centre, train station and to Homebush Library and Concord Retirement Village. We also host regular visits throughout the year, where children are provided opportunities to stay connected with local community groups such as Fire and Rescue. Our children welcome sustainability programs and visits often cover topics such as ‘How to look after Pets’, among other things. 

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

As part of their enrolment at Only About Children childcare Rhodes, children have access to our Health Program, with specialist screening and support in Occupational Therapy, Speech Pathology, Vision and Nutrition. Our dietitian-designed seasonal menus are prepared daily by our Cooks, from breakfast through to evening snack so your child is well-nourished throughout their day, every day.

You will find a team of qualified and passionate Educators at our Rhodes early learning centre,  ready to provide a safe, stimulating, happy and nurturing space for your child. Our educational curriculum – Oac Grow – 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. Children who are here for occasional care at Rhodes will also benefit from these experiences
