Oac’s expansion continues with new campuses

Only About Children (Oac) continues it’s growth trajectory with the addition of three new campuses and expansion of its existing South Melbourne campus.

In direct response to increasing demand for quality early learning and preschool options in premium environments, Oac will open new centres in Sydney’s Cremorne and Coogee in
early January 2014. The company has also acquired a decommissioned church in Melbourne’s upmarket suburb of Armadale and has received approval for the expansion
across the tram tracks at its South Melbourne campus.

Due to open January 2014, Oac Cremorne flows across three floors of a state of the art, purpose built campus with a roof top outdoor playground and al fresco eating area. The
campus will have a 10kW solar energy system, sustainable garden, worm gardens and seven state of the art classrooms. The campus will offer places to 85 children, aged 0-5.

Oac Carr St will be the second campus in Coogee, where waiting lists have burgeoned. This campus is above the well-known local Coogee Diggers and offers 60 places to 0-5 year olds.
This campus is a single level, purpose built facility with six classrooms and an oversized play-area incorporating the latest in motor-skill development features.

understanding of the long-term impact of a child’s development between the ages of 0-5, families are in search of childcare that can really make a difference. The knowledge that
Oac provides a holistic and high quality care option is driving our growth.”

Children at Oac campuses enjoy music and foreign language lessons, and early health and development screening. Oac also provides specialist therapists in speech and occupational
