The Centre

Guardian Childcare & Education Prahran is a modern, welcoming centre with a range of exciting and inspiring environments, including two spacious outdoor yards, a water pump, workshop area, vegetable gardens, a worm farm and two open-plan studios.

  The teachers and educators at our Prahran childcare centre provide quality learning programs for the children, including a two-year funded Kindergarten Program that will help prepare your child for the exciting transition to primary school.

  The Victorian Government offers funding to provide families up to 15 hours of Free Kindergarten a week, in addition to the Childcare Subsidy. The funding offsets the fees for three and four-year-old children that are part of the Centre’s long day care Kindergarten program. Families will save up to $2,050 a year for children aged three years old and above in eligible long day cares in 2024. Ask us for more information when you visit our Centre. 
  Children also get out and about on weekly excursions at our Prahran early learning centre, so we have a great connection with the surrounding community, visiting a range of locations, including Victoria Gardens, Prahran Library, Prahran Markets and Lumley playground. This helps the children gain an understanding of the world around them and build connections into the wider community.

  At our long daycare centre in Prahran, we’re proud to have a culturally diverse team and celebrate a variety of events and holidays throughout the year. We also love to get involved in local fundraising events which further extends on our community connections.
  The children enjoy meals freshly prepared on-site by our dedicated chef, using seasonal ingredients often harvested from our very own gardens. In addition, our educators love hosting regular hands-on cooking classes with the children. These experiences enhance the children’s understanding of good nutrition and lay the building blocks for establishing healthy food habits for life.
