The team are exceptional educators who provide wonderful learning opportunities and activities for the kids, centre communication is excellent, health and safety policies are followed to the tee which results in very few sick days, and the facilities are always tidy and maintained. Can't recommend highly enough.

Our son is thriving in this service and we love the care and education he receives, it feels like everyday he comes home with a new skill or piece of knowledge. The educators are all welcoming and kind, and he has built strong connections with his primary educator, often giving us a huge rundown on how he spent time with “his” Miss Jess that day. The food provided is nutritional and tasty, given there’s often not a meal he doesn’t eat! The educators also foster the relationships each child creates with another, which provides so much relief at drop off when you can guide your child to their friends. We can’t rate the centre highly enough!

Our son has attended since he was 12mths old and is now in the Pre-Kindy program. The educators are friendly and welcoming to parents and children alike. I have found them to be very observant of his likes, dislikes etc and keep us updated regularly. We also LOVE their on-site Chef who provides a wide variety of delicious and nutritious meals throughout the day - I don't know what I'll do when I have to start packing school lunches! I recommend Guardian to anyone looking for a loving and supportive centre.

My son starts to go childcare since 5 months old. The place is very clean and they have very big nursery room which is very good. I can see the educators really care for my son. The only downside is that you need to fill out the form every single morning for them to be able to apply cream or medication on your kid ( it is inconvient because my son has eczma and he has to apply eczma cream everyday so i have to fill the form every morning) but overall im very happy.

Our child attends the Guardian Childcare at Augustine Heights and we adore this centre. The staff who care for our child are trusting, thoughtful, attentive, caring and encouraging. We have seen such growth in our little ones development both physical and mental thanks to the efforts put in by everyone there. The centre managers have always kept us informed with any changes and have been quick to assist us and answer any queries. I couldn't recommend this childcare enough. I look forward to hearing the adventures our little one has been on each day.

Welcome to our Centre

Guardian Childcare & Education Augustine Heights has the most incredible outdoor area that makes the most of the beautiful Queensland climate. The outdoor spaces are complete with a running creek, colourful gardens, water play, a worm farm, and natural play structures where children are encouraged to explore and learn.

The light-filled and open-plan Centre also hosts a number of parent information evenings and weekly training workshops for Educators throughout the year and we are proud to have a culturally diverse team who celebrate a variety of cultures and holidays.

At Guardian Augustine Heights, children and families have the added benefit of a leading Kindergarten Program led by quality teachers who are there to help prepare your child for the exciting transition to school.

Children also get out and about on excursions into the wonderful local community, often visiting the neighbouring vet, local printing company and local law offices. These may seem like unusual choices for excursions, but they allow the children to understand their local community and to learn about the world around them.

Our engaging, resource-rich early childhood education environments include:

  • Passionate and experienced Educators and university-qualified Teachers who focus on relationships with children and families.
  • Beautifully designed learning spaces to inspire curiosity, fun, and a sense of belonging.
  • Nutritious meals and snacks are prepared fresh, on-site by our amazing Cooks and Chefs
  • We provide baby nappies, SPF 50+ sunscreen, high-quality formula, and bed linen.

Our approach to early childhood education at Augustine Heights means your family has access to a high-quality education close to home. We’re about building strong relationships with children and families, ensuring we create amazing learning environments for each child and age group.

As part of the community at Augustine Heights, Guardian Childcare & Education teams are committed to best practices in our child care Centre, ensuring a safe, secure, and nurturing environment for babies, toddlers, and kindergarten-aged children.

Each learning program is designed by experienced Educators to support children in developing social and emotional skills, along with literacy, numeracy and problem-solving ability that prepares them for a life of learning. Our learning programs are aligned with the Early Years Learning Framework, the National Quality Standards, and the Australian School Curriculum.

Guardian Augustine Heights is led by Centre Manager Samantha:

“I’ve learnt that we have to truly believe in children and understand that they are capable and confident learners. As teachers, we have to make sure that we’re not giving children all the answers, and that we’re supporting them to investigate their environments and build their skills up. They really are just little people–they have emotions and feelings and it’s important as adults that we don’t forget that.”

Our on-site cook prepares five nutritionally balanced meals using seasonal ingredients every day. The open kitchen at Guardian Augustine Heights allows Simon and the children to happily chat throughout the day while he prepares their meals–including his famous homemade granola–and work with the children to plan what cooking experiences they’ll be doing each week.

As they progress, children will also have the chance to see the same familiar faces as they move on up from our nursery room, into our dedicated two-year Kindergarten program, designed specifically to help prepare each child for a smooth transition from early learning to primary 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. 

As part of our unique Visible Learning Program, families are able to gain an understanding of their child’s education. Our Learning Exchange Display provides the opportunity for our university-qualified Teachers and experienced Educators to share updates on your child’s progress. It is also a chance for you to have direct input and be involved in your child’s learning!

Families have access to our communication app Storypark, allowing us to share important Centre updates, as well as exciting activities or milestones–ensuring that you remain connected, day-to-day. If you’re looking to start the journey with a high-quality, child care Centre in Augustine Heights, book a tour now!
