Guardian Childcare & Education Charlotte Street

Guardian Childcare & Education Charlotte Street has a big community focus, with children getting out and about regularly on excursions and city walks into the local area. Popular destinations include the Botanical Gardens, Queen Street Mall, St Stephen’s Cathedral playground and local shops. Guardian Charlotte Street also offer regular incursions including a quarterly visit from a nearby dental clinic to learn about oral health and a monthly visit from the local gym where children enjoy fun exercises.

The Centre boasts a range of exciting environments, including a spacious rooftop playground, city views, a vegetable garden, and natural play structures where children are encouraged to explore and learn. The light-filled Centre offers a community feel in a corporate environment, with a soothing open-plan space where our exciting multi-age programs come to life.

Children and families at Guardian Charlotte Street also have 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.

We are proud to have a culturally diverse team at Guardian Charlotte Street and celebrate a variety of cultures and holidays throughout the year, as well as a range of events and fundraisers for the local community.

Our on-site chef, Baljeet, prepares five nutritionally balanced meals using seasonal ingredients every day. The open kitchen allows Baljeet to chat to the children throughout the day, and host regular “Cooking with Baljeet” classes for the children. Parents are welcome to join us for a buffet breakfast each morning from 7:30am!

Learn More About Our Centre

Charlotte Street has a unique indoor environment that stimulates, learning, imagination and adventure with a wide range of experiences to choose from. The children especially love playing with blocks, lights and sand, and using their imaginations to create daily adventures with these materials. We also hold regular city and garden excursions which gives children the opportunity to get children out and explore the local community.

Our outdoor environment is literally a breath of fresh air and comes complete with interactive gardens and city views – a popular feature for both families and children. This space encourages exploration, creativity and development through play children are able to see the clouds and hear the sounds of the community.

We offer a Curriculum broader than just literacy and numeracy, including language, art, music, social skills, sport, sustainability and much more. With a strong focus on family involvement, engagement and communication, Guardian Childcare & Education Charlotte Street also offers a solid team of experienced educators who are passionate about their roles, and this is reflected in the genuine interest they take in each and every child and family. We love building connections with the families at our centre, and endeavour to learn as much as we can about them.
