The Oaklands Estate Kindergarten is within the Estate on Pethick Terrace and has undergone a programme of redevelopment.

There are three State Primary schools not far from the Estate.  Ascot Park Primary School is to the north on Marion Road and Marion Primary School is across the train line, to the south and both are about a 15 minute walk.  Warradale Primary School is a little further, to the west of Morphett Road.

Hamilton Secondary College is a state school on Marion Road, Mitchell Park, only a 10 minute walk from the Estate.  It is recognised for its Space School programme.

Westminster School is a private school immediately across the train line and has easy access via the pedestrian underpass at Marion Station. It comprises primary and secondary schools and an Early Learning Centre.
