Guardian Childcare & Education Aspley

(Formerly Lizards)

Guardian Childcare & Education Aspley is rated exceeding in the National Quality Standard and is one of more than 15 high-quality Guardian Childcare Centres across Queensland.

Guardian Aspley boasts a range of incredible and spacious indoor and outdoor learning environments, including vegetable gardens, a huge passionfruit vine, a mud pit, compost bins, pet budgies, and a range of age-specific play areas. These spaces encourage the children to explore and learn, with the added benefit of a Kindergarten Program led by quality teachers who are there to help prepare your child for the exciting transition to school.

Children at Guardian Aspley get out and about on regular excursions, so we have a great connection with the surrounding community, often visiting locations such as the local creek, cafes, parks, Bunnings, the library and nearby supermarkets.

Our on-site cook Carol prepares nutritionally balanced meals using seasonal ingredients every day. To further explore food at the Centre, our Educators host regular hands-on cooking classes for the children to get involved with and enhance their understanding of good nutrition. Here Carol shares her famous Tutti Fruity Muffin recipe, made with passionfruit picked by the children from our huge vine. This recipe is a firm favourite with the children at Guardian Aspley and is a great way to show them where food comes from and encourage them to try new foods and flavours.

We are proud to have a culturally diverse team and celebrate a variety of cultures and holidays, including our quarterly family get together and an end of year celebration.

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

Guardian Childcare & Education Aspley is full of surprises. Tucked away from the main road, many first-time visitors are shocked to discover our beautiful and open playground with our new resident bees and native Australian garden to inspire the children to develop an understanding of the interdependence between land, people, plants and animals. New and existing families often comment about the warm homeliness feel the centre has throughout.

Children explore garden to plate through the edible garden produce and nutritious meals supplied by our centre cook. Our four week rotating menu always incorporates a wide range of fruit and vegetables for healthy growing bodies, and caters to all special dietary requirements.

Families are encouraged to bring their children along to ‘stay and play’ sessions before they officially start at the centre. This helps them to become more familiar with what will happen on the first day, and is a great opportunity to get to know our friendly Educators.

Our Educators acknowledge and affirm children’s growth through project based learning derived from the children’s own interest and learning. This is then reflected through the engaging environments and documentation to support.
