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.

More about Guardian Charlotte Street

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. 

Charlotte Street is one of 19 Guardian Centres in and around the Brisbane CBD. As a CBD-based childcare Centre, the children are exposed to a bustling urban experience daily. It is from this that the Kindy Village project grew. 

The Centre’s Curriculum is based on the Reggio Emilia approach, which means there is a focus on community learning, with multi-age experiences and flexible spaces. The Kindy Village began as a thread of learning stemming from the Kindergarten children’s love of small worlds. Through this, the team wanted to support children as they explored concepts of identity and community. This is just one example of the incredible experiences on offer at Guardian Charlotte Street childcare. 

Our approach to learning is about more than 123s and ABCs. We nurture children’s natural desire to learn through play-based experiences that inspire curiosity about the world. We teach through real-word settings and scenarios because our children of today will face a different world tomorrow. They are entering a fast-paced, rapidly changing world, where technology rules and the traditional methods of teaching are no longer as effective. 

That’s why our approach is focused on the latest research and insights into how children learn best, focusing in on the specific skills they will need to thrive in the 21st Century. Guardian Teachers and Educators are continually adjusting their ways of thinking to support the children of today who will require the skills to be: 

  • Innovative and adaptable 
  • Creative, critical thinking problem-solvers and decision-makers 
  • Lifelong learners 
  • Able to work in partnership and collaboration with others. 

Plus, our close partnership with families allows us to offer a range of additional benefits to the learning and childcare experience for the children in our Charlotte Street childcare Centre. We pride ourselves on the support we offer families and want to help make it a little easier to balance all those daily commitments.
