Guardian Childcare & Education Newstead

Guardian Childcare & Education Newstead 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.

Guardian Childcare & Education Newstead is situated in the northern suburbs of Brisbane and is a convenient choice for families living in bordering suburbs, Breakfast Creek, Fortitude Valley, Bowen Hills, Teneriffe and New Farm.

Guardian Newstead is bursting with a range of exciting, resource-rich environments – including two spacious and covered outdoor areas where children are encouraged to explore and learn. The light-filled Centre also has a water pump, purpose-built hills and tunnels, indoor gardens, city views and natural play structures.

The Team at Guardian Newstead use the family communication app StoryPark to stay connected and ensure families are kept up-to-date about what’s happening in the Centre and what the children have been doing throughout the day. This ongoing partnership promotes continuity of learning of the children and ensures families are kept informed.

Children and families 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.

Children at Guardian Newstead also get out and about on weekly excursions into the local community, exploring a variety of locations, including Café 63, the local shops, and walks around Fortitude Valley.

Our dedicated and qualified cook prepares five nutritionally balanced meals on site every day. With a theatre-style kitchen and dining piazza, meals are always social and the children love to sit down and eat and chat with their friends and Educators. To further explore food at the Centre, our Educators host regular hands-on cooking classes to help the children extend their knowledge of good nutrition.
