Campus Overview

At Only About Children Surry Hills, we believe that our holistic approach to childcare gives every child the best opportunity to reach their full potential. Our quality early learning programs are innovative, with a focus on health, wellbeing and education. 

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. 

When your child is enrolled at Only About Children childcare Surry Hills, they are included in our Health Program, offering specialist screening and support in Nutrition, Vision, Occupational Therapy and Speech Pathology. Each day your child will enjoy nourishing and freshly prepared, seasonal, meals designed by a qualified Dietitian. 

At our Surry Hills early learning centre you will find a team of qualified and passionate Educators ready to help your child feel stimulated, safe, nurtured and happy. Our educational curriculum, known as Oac Grow, specifically supports the development of growing minds in Nursery and Preschool aged children. We cover numeracy and literacy, technology, creative expression, exploration and sustainability. Every day, your child will take part in a range of experiences exclusive to Only About Children. Our teaching is delivered in a fun, inclusive environment, with programs ranging from ‘Book of the Month’ to our enriching Music program and our ‘Spanish Language Appreciation’ program. Our ‘Active’ program helps children learn gross motor skills and improve their strength, endurance, flexibility, balance and coordination. 

Our play-based curriculum allows us to deliver considered teaching in dynamic small group learning environments where we regularly monitor children’s challenges, successes and skills.
