I have a request to create tabbed content which can be content managed by the user through the CMS Admin.

What is the best way to structure this within SilverStripe?

Is it by creating child pages of a page type "tabbed content" or something similar? And then pulling in the pages in the templating layer?

If depends on the complexity of your tab content, if you're simply using an Html field then you could add a field to your page type and have multiple html content boxes. Tutorial 2 explains how to add content fields to your page. If you have tons of tabs and more complex fields then pages work well.
