Guardian Childcare & Education Allara Street

Guardian Childcare & Education Allara Street is rated as exceeding in the National Quality Standard. The Centre is bursting with exciting, resource-rich environments, including an indoor/outdoor program, herb and vegetable gardens, and sustainably sourced outdoor resources.

Children at Guardian Allara Street are encouraged to explore and learn in the incredible and spacious setting, with highlights being a creek bed, water play area, Indigenous totem poles, beautiful shady trees, wooden decking, and a range of other age-specific play areas.

Teachers and Educators at Guardian Allara Street provide wonderful learning programs for the children, including a leading Preschool Program for those older children preparing for the transition to primary school.

The children often get out and about on excursions into the local community – we love going on nature walks, as well as attending Floriade and the Canberra Theatre once a year. Our proudly culturally diverse team celebrate a variety of holidays throughout the year, which gives the children a great appreciation for diversity and the world around them.

The team also organise regular visits from Duncan, a local Indigenous community leader, who teaches the children about traditional Aboriginal songs, symbols, art and plants. This is an incredible learning opportunity for the children, and they delight in having Duncan visit the Centre.

Our on-site cook prepares nutritionally balanced meals using seasonal ingredients every day, and also hosts regular hands-on cooking classes for the children.

We invite you to begin the adventure at Guardian Allara Street today by booking a tour to explore the Centre, or speaking to our team.
