We know Guardian Maroubra West as Garden St and our daughters have been here for 3.5 years. What I like most about the centre is the felling of being part of a community and that it seems more like a home than a child care centre. I couldn't ask for anything more from the staff they have really done everything for our girls.

We absolutely love Maroubra West! Our daughter has loved every minute of her time at the centre. She is cared for like one of the beautiful carers own.We were drawn to Maroubra West because it is a smaller centre, which has become more and more of a positive for us. Every educator is interactive with both the kids and parents/grandparents when dropping off or picking up.Their communication on all matters is fabulous and the activities they put together for the children is great. We are so pleased to be apart of the Maroubra West “family”!

I could not recommend Guardian Childcare Maroubra West more highly. My daughter has been in the nursery room (0-2 years) for 3 months. When looking for a childcare centre for my daughter, we wanted a place that felt warm just like family and for her to be nurtured as she would at home. This is exactly what the team here provides. As soon as my daughter sees her careers she has her arms out ready to go to them. We could not be happier and more grateful with each of the wonderful staff members. Besides for the wonderful care my daughter receives, the admin side and communication is amazing. Every email and phone call is answered promptly. Thank you to each member at Guardian Childcare Maroubra West.

I can't rate Garden Street highly enough. I needed to return to work when my son was 6 months old and was so nervous about him going to daycare. After touring a few places, I walked in here and immediately felt a sense of warmth. The place is spotless, the food cooked by the lovely kitchen staff looks and smells delicious, but mostly the educators are just incredible. They have made me feel so welcome and reassured. Each child is treated as an individual and my son has absolutely blossomed with their gentle guidance. They are hard working, compassionate, talented and creative educators and I feel very lucky to have found this place.

I highly recommend Maroubra West. It has a real sense of being a “family” with the benefits of a formal educational structured setting. Before enrolling, we visited many centres in the area and often left feeling a bit overwhelmed (especially for nursery babies) but Maroubra West was different. My daughter is thriving at the centre and it is a reflection of the hard work and dedication put in by the educators. They have worked gradually to get my daughter to a point where she sleeps and eats independently and is excited to go to “school” in the morning. The manager Tracy is responsive and communicative with parents but also puts in the time and energy into building a genuine rapport with the children. Stacey is a fantastic lead educator in the nursery and plans great activities for the children and is wonderfully attentive. I also highly rate Fah, Myriam and Sam who are hard working and experienced educators.

We have been part of the Garden Street community for seven years and I regularly recommend it to other families. The Educators really take the time to get to know each child and support them to become active learners. The whole team is so caring which results in Garden Street feeling like a real community. The facilities are excellent and the outdoor area, with its vegetable patch and worm farm, has really engaged both of my children in learning about the world around them. Highly recommend.

Our daughter has been going to Garden Street for 2.5 years and we have been so happy with her there. The level of care from the educators and carers has always been wonderful. It has been a real comfort to know she is well looked after. We have also seen her develop and grow so many important skills with language and numeracy, and the best part is that she is learning through play. Thanks to all the Team at Garden street!

When my son started at this day care he is so shy, his crying we in about to go and not talking at all and now since my son on this community he started to gain his confidence, socialising with kids and learning stuff we get to point that me and my husband will get shock that he can do that and surprised of what he achieved. And his eating now, his asking me food. Before his wasn’t like this. Thank you Garden street Early Learning Centre..😘👍

Both my kids have been at Garden Street for 8 months now. My oldest had been at a centre elsewhere for 3 years and I honestly never thought we'd top it. But Garden Street has proved me wrong. The educators are all completely lovely and so, so caring. Nothing is ever too much trouble and my kids come home full of new knowledge and excitment about their day. My son had never been in care anywhere else when he started and he found the transition hard, but with the love and support he and I received from the educators, the transition was made as smooth as possible and within a couple of months he was completely settled and happy at drop offs and pick ups. I couldn't recoemmend it more highly.

Both my boys have been at Garden St from a young age, starting in the Nursery room and transitioning through Toddler to the Preschool Room where my youngest still is. The team are like an extended family for us and I'm so grateful for all the help and support they have provided over the years. Whilst there have been staff changes (like at all centres) many of the educators remain the same which I think speaks volumes for the type of centre it is and the environment they create. My son loves it there and I see evidence every day of him being cared for as an individual.

We love this place. My son started in the pre school room a few months back and after the inevitable slow start loves his time there. In fact he doesn’t want to be picked up early. It does feel more like a home vs a day care facility, which I like too.

Welcome to our Centre

Guardian Childcare & Education Maroubra West is a beautiful light-filled and spacious Centre, housing a mix of indoor and outdoor learning environments where the exciting programs and practices come to life, including vegetable gardens, a water pump, creek bed, natural play structures and a range of age-specific play areas.

At Guardian Maroubra West children are encouraged to explore and learn, with the added benefit of a Preschool Program led by quality teachers who are there to help prepare your child for the exciting transition to school.

As part of our community focus we run an excursion program into the local community, as well as visit our sister Centre, Guardian Childcare & Education Maroubra East.

Guardian Maroubra West has a dedicated on-site cook who prepares five nutritionally balanced meals using seasonal ingredients every day. With an open-plan setting, the kitchen is the hub of our Centre. Children are able to interact and watch the preparation of meals, which enhances their understanding of good nutrition.

Eligible children who turn 4 years old on or before 31 July 2024 will receive up to $2,110 in additional subsidies. This fee support is on top of any Child Care Subsidy eligible families may be receiving. If your child is 3 years old and not yet 4 years old on, or before 31 July in 2024 and is enrolled at our Centre, you will receive up to $500 in fee relief. Ask us for more information when you visit our Centre.

Our Educators

Our team of Educators are committed and passionate about ensuring your child will be safe, nurtured and cared for every day. At Guardian, children are encouraged to engage in interest-led play that creates learning and meaningful experiences.

Our Educators seek to optimise diverse learning opportunities and implement the Curriculum as framed by the Early Years Learning Framework.

You and Your Child

All Guardian Centres provide a Centre-to-Family communication platform so families can maintain contact with their children’s experiences through photos, stories and learning outcomes.

Our Centres use Storypark and each family is provided with a secure login to access on their computers, mobiles or apps.

Learn More About Our Centre

Caring for the environment is a big passion for a lot of our children, and they enjoy taking on outdoor responsibilities like watering the plants and tending to the garden. They take pride in watching things grow, and this helps to create a feeling of responsibility and belonging.

Our wonderful cook makes nutritious, home-style meals, using fresh ingredients from the garden where possible. The children love visiting the kitchen to watch the cook in action! Our menu has been reviewed by Nutrition Australia, which ensures all the daily requirements are being met. Bake sales are always a fun experience, with all proceeds going directly to the Starlight Foundation.

We believe in treating children as individuals, and encourage them to create their own learning experiences under the guidance of our friendly and engaging educators. Open communication helps to build strong relationships with families, and this begins before your child’s first day. New families are encouraged to attend orientation prior to the start date in order to meet our team and become familiar with the centre.

Once in our care, our open door policy means you are always welcome to come and visit your child. There are many opportunities to see the learning that takes place each day, and you can also book discussion times with an educator to develop shared goals for your child.

To find out more about what we have to offer, please contact our friendly team.
