Our family love this centre!The professionalism and caring nature of staff is obvious as soon as you step through the door and are greeted by the leadership team. We love that the educators upload digital stories so we can learn about our child’s development. We love the chef who cooks with the children and is friendly with the parents. Great centre!

Becoming a new parent is stressful and overwhelming enough, and especially if you move to a new country and continent at the same time, like I did. From the moment I enrolled my son, Guardian Newstead has been supported both me and my child so much. Absolute life changer to know your child will be educated, socialized, supported, and loved!! Everything from the amazing Greek chef and his fantastic meals (that my picky eater loves), to the nurturing and informative educators, and the vast space they have to run around and exert all their energy has surpassed all my previous expectations of what daycare should be. I’m so grateful for them! Anyone who enrols their child, can rest assure and be comforted by the fact that they will be greeted with a warm friendly smile at the entrance, and leave with a full belly and full heart, and stimulated intellectually to boot! Highly recommend.

Really great childcare centre, the staff have been wonderful looking after my children who seem really happy there. Fantastic facilities for the children to play and explore and all is communicated through their online portal so you can keep up to date on what's happening. The staff seem to care about the place and the children and it shows in the facilities. The staff are really engaging with us and happy to share what they have been up to. The centre is really well managed and they seem to have everything under control. Happy to recommend this place to anyone looking for a child care centre for their children.

Welcome to our Centre

Welcome to Guardian Childcare & Education Newstead, a modern, spacious child centre in Brisbane’s inner-north. Our early childhood education programs are focused on play-based learning, and our team of qualified Teachers and Educators provide a stimulating environment for children aged six weeks to six years of age to discover the world in a safe and secure way.

It’s an ideal choice for families looking for childcare near Breakfast Creek, Fortitude Valley, Bowen Hills, Teneriffe and New Farm, or those commuting to Brisbane CBD for work.

Our Newstead early learning centre 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. Our light-filled daycare in Newstead also has a water pump, purpose-built hills and tunnels, indoor gardens, city views and natural play structures.

Children and families also have the added benefit of a two-year dedicated Kindergarten Program led by quality teachers who are there to help prepare your child for the exciting transition to school.

From 1 Jan 2024 eligible children will receive up to 15 hours of free Kindergarten per week at our Centre, up to 600 hours of free Kindergarten per year. This fee support is on top of any Child Care Subsidy eligible families may be receiving. To take advantage of this additional support children must be at least four years of age by 30 June in the year before they attend Primary School and be enrolled at an approved Kindergarten program for at least 2 days a week. Ask us for more information when you visit our Centre. 

Children at our child care in 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 fresh seasonal ingredients. 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 our Newstead day care, our Educators host regular hands-on cooking classes to help the children extend their knowledge of good nutrition.

We 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.

Our unique Visible Learning program allows families to witness their child’s progress first-hand. The Learning Exchange is a display in each learning space showing what your child is doing on any given day. Here, our Teachers and Educators will share with you any significant updates on your child’s development and your child’s education and provide the chance for you to share your own goals and visions – providing direct input into your child’s educational journey!

Book a tour of our incredible Guardian Newstead day care centre today to get started!

We’re Exceeding! What does that mean? Every six months, our Centres are assessed by ACECQA, the national body with the responsibility for monitoring the quality of all registered child care centres in Australia. A rating of Exceeding National Quality Standard means that you can be assured that this Centre is providing an exceptional level of care and attention for your child.
