All the educators are so lovely and approachable. The activities they organise for the kids are so much fun and everyone seems to genuinely love the kids. Every day my little one surprises me with something new he has learned from day care and I love getting the photo updates. Every day we get excited for day care. Thanks so much team!

The centre managers and staff are really lovely and have been so great in helping my eldest as she took quite a while to settle in to daycare in general. Now, she always has a good day and gets to have different experiences. I would highly recommend.

Great centre. It doesn’t look much from the street but it is fantastic inside, with a big outdoor play area. The educators are warm and build special bonds with the children. We receive photo updates daily. Our family has been at the centre for almost four years - we love it!

Great facility for kids improvement right from infant age. We have seen so much progress in our kid since month 1. They maintain a high standard of cleanliness, nutritious food, prompt feedback of any concern. I would highly recommend this center. Keep up the good work.

Our experience at Guardian Aspley has been fantastic from our first day. The nursery room provides a warm and safe space for little ones starting their daycare journey. The carers are gentle and kind, and provide a stimulating environment for them to play, grow and learn. This Centre was recommended to us, and I would highly recommend it to anyone considering a new daycare facility for their little ones.

Two of my children have attended this centre since they were 9 and 4 months respectively. They are now 5 and 3. They have loved every minute. My 5 year old starts school in 2021 and he is more than prepared for this adventure and the educators at this centre have a lot to do with that. The management team are fantastic also. Would happily recommend this centre to anyone looking for daycare in the Aspley area.

Our children have been attending Guardian at Aspley since for the past 4 years and we have watched them thrive and learn so much at this centre, build strong relationships with other kids and staff and build their confidence. The staff care so much about the children and know all the kids by name. The children learn so much through the fun and creative activities and games facilitated by the educators. The centre is clean, with a big well thought out play area, and gardens the children help look after. The centre provides nutritious meals with great variety prepared on site. It is a big centre but has a great community feel and we would be happy to recommend.

My son has been attending Guardian Aspley since he was 7 months old in the nursery, he thrived from the first week. He is now 19 months and in the toddler room and he loves this daycare, it often takes 20 minutes to leave! The centre itself is clean and has a great set up with a garden and playground in the centre as well as a separate area for the Nursery and Toddlers to play in. The regular introduction of various cultures in daily learning as well as practising sign language during songs makes this centre a step above so many others. There is great communication between the centre and parents through Story Park, newsletters and emails. Every educator welcomes my son by his name as he enters and says goodbye when he leaves. We have felt very informed, included and welcomed from the moment that we started and he has made great friendships already, I wouldn't hesitate recommending Guardian Aspley to anyone.

My child attends the centre in the kindergarten room this year she has had fun learning and exploring many different topics. The staff are wonderful and the 2 ladies that manage the centre are always helpful and there to answer any questions my husband and I might have. The meals are great and I find that my child eats more and tries many of the new and great smelling creations that come from their on site kitchen. I would recommend this centre to my family and friends in the future

My child has attended the centre for almost 2yrs, we love Lizards! Although it’s a large centre all of the staff know my child by name and they’re all so welcoming and friendly. The resources are great, as is the standard of food. But the educators are the cherry on top- my child has formed genuine bonds with each of their educators across 3 different rooms as they’ve grown. The staff genuinely care for and about my child, I feel safe leaving my child in their care and have no hesitations about putting future children into care at Lizards.

My daughter has attended Lizards since she was a baby and has formed the most amazing bonds with all the educators during her time in the centre. All the staff at the centre are supportive from the directors all the way to the room staff. She enjoys her day's painting, climbing and learning many new things. They have a great multicultural program and she loves going out into the community on excursions, Micheal

Guardian Childcare & Education Aspley NQS Rated Exceeding by ACECQA

Our centre has been recognised as ‘Exceeding’ the National Quality Standard. This is the highest rating you can receive from a regulatory authority assessment and we are proud to deliver an exceptional service to the children and families who attend our centre.

Hours

Mon to Fri 6:30am to 6:30pm

Address

1239 Gympie Road
Aspley, QLD, 4034


Welcome to our Centre

Guardian Childcare & Education Aspley 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.

From 1 Jan 2024 eligible children will receive up to 15 hours of free Kindergarten per week at our Centre, up to 600 hours of free Kindergarten per year. This fee support is on top of any Child Care Subsidy eligible families may be receiving. To take advantage of this additional support children must be at least four years of age by 30 June in the year before they attend Primary School and be enrolled at an approved Kindergarten program for at least 2 days a week. Ask us for more information when you visit our Centre. 

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.

Begin the adventure at Guardian Aspley today. Book a tour of the Centre or speak to one of our team.

We’re Exceeding! What does that mean? Every six months, our Centres are assessed by ACECQA, the national body with the responsibility for monitoring the quality of all registered child care centres in Australia. A rating of Exceeding National Quality Standard means that you can be assured that this Centre is providing an exceptional level of care and attention for your child.

”I believe all children are Capable. It’s these capabilities that build children’s ability and be confident in themselves to know they can do it! Educator biases around previous learning are removed to allow for children’s voice and ideas to shine and be followed organically. We must be careful what we try and teach our children, as it may interrupt what they are actually learning. “

Rhythm of The Day

With endless possibilities, there’s never a dull moment at Guardian and no two days are the same. Here’s what a day at Guardian might look like. Please note, this will vary depending on centre opening hours.

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.
