About

Welcome to Only About Children Melbourne Central!

Only About Children Melbourne Central is a warm and inviting child care centre conveniently located on level 5 of Melbourne Central Shopping Centre. Children are cared for by qualified and passionate educators, in a safe and home-like environment that facilitates play-based learning that is both structured and unstructured.  Children from six weeks to school age are able to attend from 7:15 am to 6:15 pm with all meals and snacks provided.

In the large outdoor play spaces, the children are free to dig in the sandpit, climb on the fort, or ride on the bike track. Inside, the light-filled spaces use natural materials to encourage play and interaction with friends.

This includes visits to Melbourne Museum, Melbourne Aquarium, local gardens and the State Library.

It's been a great experience having my child attending OAC at Melbourne Central. We are so blessed to have such a warm and caring and inspiring team supporting us. Hope we'll get a chance to come back to this big family after we come back from overseas. All the best!!

Only About Children is wonderful. The carers are all so lovely and the kids absolutely love going every day and I know they are getting the very best care!

Our daughter had been in OAC's nursery for over a year and we love it. The food is fresh, she has had 2 permenant carers in the room the entire time, and they are fantastic. I feel very happy that so much effort is put into the children's care, education and entertainment.

Imagine your child coming home happy, and requesting to go back to daycare everyday! Absolutely amazing place. Educators and facilities are top notch and the smartphone app is brilliant. Could not recommend this place enough. The central CBD location works well for us, but they have other campuses around melbourne.
