Only About Children consider themselves much more than just child care. They are a place for children to grow, learn, make friends, explore the world and become school-ready. The children are exposed to a vast array of programs and inclusions as part of the daily fee.

The Grow Curriculum is the centre’s unique educational framework and the basis for essential early years learning and development. It includes core practices and programs that children are immersed in daily, through a balance of structured and unstructured play-based learning. It is guided by the Australian Early Years Learning Framework. Spanning toddler, preschool and school readiness ages.

The 4 key areas of the curriculum are:

  • Left Brain Logic – Literacy & Language, Exploration & STEM (Science, Tech, Engineering & Math) and Sustainability
  • Right Brain Creativity – Music, Dramatic Play and Art
  • Health and Wellbeing – Physical Activity and Nutrition
  • Social Development, Trust, Respect & Relationships and Resilience & Mindfulness

To support the Grow Curriculum, the centre also has relationships with local schools to help with the transition to school, including school readiness workshops for families.
