Guardian Childcare & Education Queen Street

Guardian Childcare & Education Queen Street 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 Queen Street is  alight-filled and spacious open-plan Centre, boasting sweeping city views, water play, a worm farm, and sandstone play areas where the children are encouraged to explore and learn.

Our exciting, modern and resource-rich environments span both indoor and outdoor, and include dedicated project spaces, natural play structures and indoor gardens which are not only beautiful but support our teaching around sustainability and the natural world. We also offer 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 Queen Street are fortunate to get out and about on excursions, so we have a great connection with the local community. We visit locations such as Brisbane River to watch the City Cats, Queen Street Mall, the Botanical Gardens and our local library which is always a popular activity with the children.

Our community-minded team also organise a range of fundraising events for the children to be involved in, which extends their knowledge of the world around them. You can watch Guardian Queen Street teacher and Educational Leader, Shayne, share a drawing story on our Learning Exchange.

Our on-site cook, Renata, prepares five nutritionally balanced meals using seasonal ingredients every day. To further explore food at the Centre, Renata also hosts hands-on cooking classes to teach the children about good nutrition and to encourage them to try new foods.
