Guardian Childcare & Education Clayfield

Every day is an opportunity for discovery and growth at Guardian Childcare & Education Clayfield. With a range of exciting, resource-rich environments – including freshly renovated outdoor spaces – children are encouraged to explore and learn.

The light-filled and spacious centre also has native gardens, a water pump, a creek bed, natural play structures, and a range of age-specific ateliers.

Children get out and about on excursions, so we have a great connection with the surrounding community. We visit locations such as nearby train stations and the local fruit market.

We are proud to have a culturally diverse team and celebrate a variety of cultures and holidays. As part of our community focus, we host family breakfast in the centre every morning from 6:30am.

Our on-site cooks, Natasha and Tianne, prepare five nutritionally balanced meals using seasonal ingredients every day. With a theatre-style kitchen and dining piazza, meals are always social and invite conversation around food.

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

Designed to enhance the learning experience for babies and children, the learning spaces include;

  • Huge outdoor play areas for all age groups, featuring natural gardens, sand-pits, scooter path and a natural creek bed for water play and discovery.
  • Commercial ‘theatre-style’ kitchen and café-style dining designed to enhance interactions with food and the centre cook, as well as giving children the opportunity to socialise over meals.
  • Art and science and sensory play with mirrored balls, shakers and instruments
  • Reading nook for quiet play and relaxation

It is within these rich environments that our team of passionate and highly qualified educators implement the Guardian curriculum – a Reggio Emilia inspired play-based, child-led early learning philosophy which encompasses literacy, numeracy, science, art, music, and language, underpinned by a focus on social and emotional development.
