Welcome to Only About Children St Ives Link Rd

Only About Children St Ives Link Road is a warm, inviting, established child care 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 aged are cared for from 7.00 am to 6.00 pm with all meals and snacks provided.

In the large outdoor play spaces, the children are free to dig in the sandpit, get creative in the art area, or water the plants in the vegetable garden. Inside, the light-filled spaces use natural materials to encourage play and interaction with friends. Educators enjoy taking the children out in the local community for excursions and community activities that build on the children’s interests. 

This purpose-built campus is conveniently located off Mona Vale Road, next to local schools. It has strong links with the local community due to its long history in the St Ives area. Why not book a tour today?
