Surry Hills Childcare & Preschool

An oasis in the heart of the inner city, our Surry Hills campus boasts a huge outdoor playscape designed to encourage health, development and wellbeing in the early years.

Campus Overview

Our gorgeous renovated Campus is situated at 234-240 Devonshire Street, just behind Crown Street, and a five-minute walk from the Surry Hills Library. This early learning centre is right near the heart of Surry Hills and everything that the area has to offer. With plenty of onsite parking available, families can enjoy a smooth drop off and pick up every visit. We are a 10-minute walk from Central Station and access to the new Light Rail, via Surry Hills Tram Station, is right outside our front door. 

Our beautiful outdoor play space features two large sandpits, a bike track, a river rock stream, plants, edible gardens and a worm farm. Children have plenty of space to explore, create and lead their own play with a dedicated creative arts space. Our nursery children have their own, purpose-built, outdoor play area and our toddlers and preschoolers enjoy alfresco dining spaces. Our nine age-based indoor spaces feature dedicated rooms and areas for each age group. We enjoy a communal library, a yoga room and a large tropical fish tank with a pet turtle named ‘Albie’! 

We love to connect with our local area and community through excursions and activities that feed into children’s interests and learning. At Only About Children childcare Surry Hills, these include regular trips to the library, the local greengrocer and Surry Hills Mall. We foster connections with local public schools and our children enjoy trips to meet with the school children. We believe that our excursions and activities play an integral part in creating a real community feel amongst our families.
