Hello, my name is Sarah Dewhurst and I have been the Director here at Only About Kids Early Learning since we opened in 2016.

I have been working in the Early Childhood Industry for over 12 years and hold my Advanced Diploma. I am also currently studying Diploma of Business.

I started out as a trainee working my way through and experiencing a variety of roles within the service and community. I lived and worked in a rural Queensland town for many years and strive to use my knowledge and experience of the community and industry every day.

As a mum myself I understand the importance of feeling comfortable with your child’s educators and environment.

As a team we acknowledge the importance of working in partnership with our families to ensure each child’s and family’s needs are met and respected.

I have always had a passion for Early Childhood and the important role we play in each child’s life. I love seeing each child emerge into their own little personalities and each day you learn something new or learn to look at life from a different perspective.

I am honoured to be working alongside the team here at OAK to provide a professional, high quality education and care setting for you and your children.


We believe that the value of play is of utmost importance to children as it is their way of learning about their world.  While children play they are able to experiement with new ideas, test theories and their understanding of concepts, express their creative ability, release their emotions and share their feelings.  While engaging in play children are developing across all domains and creating the building blocks for their future.


We partner with you to provide a safe, quality, family-centred learning environment where every child is respected and nurtured. We continually develop our skills and explore new ways to enrich your child’s early learning experience.


Indoor and outdoor play based experiences are an integral part of our program. Educators plan a diverse range of experiences to create opportunities for your child in both structured and spontaneous play.


Our programs are inspired by the wisdom and teachings of early childhood theorists and the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF), and aim to develop children’s emotional, social and cognitive intelligence.


The Kindergarten curriculum continues to emphasise play based learning, however offers additional intentional learning times where the focus is on literacy and numeracy, socialisation, self-regulation and independence.
