About Only About Children Melbourne Central

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.
