About Only Early Learning Centre

   1 ratings more

At Only Early Learning Centre we warmly welcome all new families into our early learning environment. We understand not only how important the Early Learning Years are from an educational perspective, but also that for many children this may be the first time away from family and friends, which can be a daunting experience.

At Only ELC we will strive to ensure that everyone who visits our centre feels safe, secure and supported in their new surroundings. We pride ourselves on creating strong bonds with our families and enjoy becoming a “home away from home” for your children.

The centre has a strong community base. We support local businesses, local events as well as give back to the community where ever we can. We have lots of social events throughout the year for not only the children but for the families as well.

Our educational programs in the room are developed and implemented by a professional and experienced team of Educators. We provide above regulation ratios across the centre. Our Educators have been hand picked and are some of the most desired Educators in the Early Education industry.

Our planning, implementation and documentation techniques for our programs are based on the Early Years Learning Framework. This is the National Curriculum that recognises and supports the development of the individual child in a natural environment throughout their early years.

At Only ELC, each individual child’s development is monitored and catered for. Programs are based on child interests, their development needs as well as family involvement and the world around us. Each of our five learning rooms are dedicated to ensuring that each of the children are participating in a program that is not only educational, but also fun and inviting for them. Our Educators follow an intentional teaching approach which enables the children to be guided into a world of discovery that provides the tools they need to answer their own questions.

Our daily programs are inclusive of a full School Readiness program in our 4-5's room which has been developed in conjunction with "Ants in the Apple program" as well as the NSW Early Stage One syllabus. Activities and experiences are also planned reflecting best start assessments.

As a multicultural Service we also provide an additional Bilingual Mandarin Program which not only includes language development but a range of cognitive, social/emotional and motor skills development in individual and small group settings for ages 1-6years.

We encourage all families looking for Early Care and Education to come and check out our facilities and have a discussion with our Director Kelly.

I cannot express enough how much we have appreciated our time here as a part of the Only family, every one of the educators we have had over the years has formed a relationship and bonded with my two children, and helped them feel loved and secure in their environment whilst helping them learn and grow. All the educators have cared for my babies like they were their own, rocking them to sleep, helping them eat, changing them when they spill things on themselves, changing nappies, helping toilet, resolving conflicts they might be having and helping them regulate their emotions, helping them play, paint and learn and so much more, and basically helping them to develop into beautiful little people and they have loved coming to school! In the 4 years we have been coming here we have never had an issue, I have always been so impressed with the way the centre is managed, all the staff are so cohesive and nothing is ever too much trouble and everyone has always been so flexible and eager to help and we have always been well informed on anything that has been going on with the centre or my kids individually. Sending children into care is a really emotional choice but I have always felt comfortable knowing they are being well cared for at Only ELC. They have set the bar really high for any educational institutes going forward! We can't thank them enough for their dedication to what they do and for everything they have all done for my babies over the years, particularly this crazy year.
