Campus Overview

We take a holistic approach to childcare at Only About Children St Leonards. We provide quality early learning, through innovative programs, with a focus on health, wellbeing and early years education. Through this integrated approach, we believe every child is given the greatest opportunity to reach their full potential. 

Our purpose-built Campus is located at 44-46 Pacific Highway, in the heart of St Leonards, and close to the Royal North Shore Hospital (RNSH). With underground parking spaces, and a pram bay available, families can enjoy a smooth drop off and pick up every visit. We are conveniently located near public transport with St Leonards Train Station a five-minute walk away, and bus stops near the front door. We have several local schools in the area, including Artarmon Public, Greenwich, St Mary’s Catholic, North Sydney Public, Cammeray Public and St Thomas. 

With dedicated outdoor areas, children have plenty of space for creativity, exploration and self-lead play. Our nursery area has a large ball pit and a sand pit for children to crawl and discover safely. There are many pushing toys, balls, a baby gym, a soft area and a home corner for older babies to explore and challenge themselves. Our toddler area has a sandpit, slide and monkey bars, a large bike track and a cubby house. Children can see how their food is prepared through the window to our kitchen. Our preschool area is partially covered on the top level, with a beautiful view of the Sydney Tower and Sydney Harbour Bridge. Preschoolers enjoy a slide, a large bike track, a cubby house and a home corner outside. Our six age-based indoor spaces are specifically 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 education. At Only About Children childcare St Leonards, these include trips to the local shops, the local cafe and the Gore Hill Oval. We enjoy hosting monthly visits to build connections with our families. These include Grandparents Day, Mother’s DayFather’s Day and National Pyjama Day. Our children love to invite local police officers and firefighters to talk. We celebrate with school photos, preschool graduations and Christmas Parties! We have also been working with Breadtags for Wheelchairs, and The Pyjama Foundation to assist children and people who need additional support. 

As part of their enrolment at Only About Children childcare St Leonards, 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. 

With a team of qualified and passionate Educators at our St Leonards childcare 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.
