Kembangan in Focus: the Parent’s Guide

At Little Oxford we’re a part of the community and we love exploring all the aspects of our local areas and enjoying all the incredible things that it has to offer. We’ve recently opened a new location in Kembangan, a wonderful neighborhood full of awesome family friendly businesses that are eager to serve the district.

We’ve thoroughly enjoyed the process of setting up our new location and the welcome from local residents has been overwhelming. We’re aiming to be the preschool education centre in Kembangan and we’re excited to learn and grow with all of the children that will be starting their learning journey with us.

While we’ve been scouring the area around our new location we’ve had the pleasure to visit with the wealth of local businesses and attractions in the area and we’ve put together a comprehensive family guide to Kembangan..
