Guardian Childcare & Education Newstead

Every day is an opportunity for discovery and growth at Guardian Childcare & Education Newstead, which is rated exceeding in the National Quality Standard. With a range of exciting, resource-rich environments – including two spacious and covered outdoor areas – 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, natural play structures, and two open-plan ateliers.

Children get out and about on weekly excursions, so we have a great connection with the surrounding community. We visit a variety of locations, including Cafe 63, Woolworths, and walks around Fortitude Valley.

We are proud to have a culturally diverse team and celebrate a variety of cultures and holidays throughout the year.

Our on-site cook prepares five nutritionally balanced meals using seasonal ingredients every day. With a theatre-style kitchen and dining piazza, meals are always social and invite conversations around food. To further explore food at the centre, our Educators host cooking classes for the children to get involved in to enhance their understanding of good nutrition.
