We love Guardian Queen Street. My daughter has been at the centre for 3 years and now my son also attends. The teachers are so friendly and attentive. The play spaces are large and open so there’s plenty of room for the kids to move and play. The teachers are invested in the children’s learning and the chef makes great meals and snacks for the kids and I know at the end of the day they’ve had nutritious food. Thank you to all our friends at Guardian Queen Street!

My daughter started in the nursery at 480 Queen St a couple of months ago and I couldn't be happier with our experience so far. The staff are all wonderful and my daughter is beaming with a smile the second we walk into reception! The centre itself is beautiful, so much space and everything is so high quality. Love the way the educators truly adore each of the children and care for them as if they are their own. I feel very safe and secure knowing my baby is in the care of the team at 480 Queen St :)

Our son has now been at Guardian Queen Street for 1.5 years and we could not ask for a better place to be part of our village.Even though he often has a hard time at drop off I never worry about him during the day.It's incredible for us that we only have to worry about sending him with spare clothes and a water bottle. Guardian provide all food, nappies, hats, sunscreen. The menus are incredible and the in house chef and kitchen is located so that the toddler room can watch all the action.I've heard from other parents that moving rooms can be difficult on children because they don't get to see their beloved educators anymore. It's wonderful that the centre often combines children at the beginning or end of the day so they still get to see their previous educators.Guardian uses the KindyNow app which is invaluable. I can use the app to advise of absences but even better, I can use the app to book a casual day. Say your child doesn't normally attend on Mondays but then Sunday at 11pm you put your back out and need to rest the next day, rather than run after a toddler, you can use the app to book them in for Monday if there is a space.The Storypark app is used to give a summary at the end of the day about the events of the day, with photos included. It's wonderful and so nice to be able to build upon learnings and themes and chat with the children about their day, especially when communication is still developing.Being on the 5th floor might seem odd at first of you've only ever seen suburban daycares but the children love being able to watch the Brisbane river, construction projects and passing vehicles. They have multiple sandpits and water play areas. And equipment for big motor skill play like balance beams and jumping off platforms into large pillows.It's never a problem that I drop him off at odd times and whenever I do, the children are happy and having the best fun.Some of the many, many activities they have put together include: examining insect specimens in resin, making fruit smoothies with leftover fruit salad, sink and float experiments, making family trees, dance parties, lots of arts and crafts and incorporating other learning such as letter recognition into these activites. There is also lots of time and space for free play.I truly wish I could attend and play too!

Our daughter has been attending this amazing centre since November 2020. There are not enough words to express how much we truly love Guardian Queen Street.The service manager/director, Megha has transformed the service in an indescribable way, as soon as you enter level 5 & the lift doors open, you are able to see that the education and care of our children begins before they enter the service itself! The centre is always clean and there is calming music as well as a diffuser which is switched on in the office/foyer which makes the transition from home to the service a relaxing experience.The service is well resourced, this has obviously made it easy for the development of children to occur naturally and holistically.Something that we particularly love about this exceptional service is the dedication, commitment and quality of educators. Ariel, Joanna, Manpreet, Aries, Naing (to name a few) have impacted our lives in the most positive way & for that, we are eternally grateful. Story Park posts are informative and helpful and most importantly, updated daily.The food at the service is made by professional chef Aleksey who ensures that the children are not only exposed to a wide variety of international dishes, but that they are also consuming healthy foods. My daughter always has seconds of everything!The only negative thing about Queen Street Guardian, is that your child will eventually have to leave (when they go toschool!).If you are looking for the most amazing, loving and beautiful service- LOOK NO FURTHER!!!

Our daughter attends Queen St in the nursery space and it has been such a wonderful experience for us.The educators are caring, compassionate, kind and take such good care of our baby girl. The curriculum is well planned and thorough. Our daughter is becoming such a social and confident butterfly, it’s been beautiful watching her grow since she started her early childcare journey with Guardian.Welcoming spaces, inclusive, diversity, collaboration, consistent communication and genuine care for children 💜

From the very beginning, the educators have been like a second family to Sophie - she still loves to go and play with her educators from Ruby (from her baby months) including Margie, Eileen, and Joan, because of the strong bonds formed then. In Opal green, she just loves her new educators Lauren, Ivy and Trojan. There are many others who greet her each day. Sophie enjoys going to Guardian each day and we are thrilled with her development while being at Guardian.

Michelle, Emma and their team are absolutely amazing. They are always accommodating and put the children and families first. Our little one really came out of her shell by being here and we are so grateful! The centre itself is fantastic and the activities the children do from day 1 make such a difference to their development. Can’t sing their praises enough!

Guardian has been an exceptional experience for my oldest son who has been with the centre for over 2 years. We specifically sought out a centre that demonstrated the core values of a Reggio Emelia approach to early childhood learning and this has been so valuable in our son's development. The children are encouraged to explore their interests and curiosity in a warm and supportive environment. Hugs are always on offer for those tough moments and the educators knew my child's personality inside out. Communication through Storypark has been wonderful and the Kindy educator - Shayne - is a truly gifted teacher.Thank you to all the staff at Guardian Queen Street for giving our boy a great start to life.

I cannot rave enough about the Queen Street Guardian! I was nervous about starting my almost 2YO daughter as she had not been in any formal day care prior to attending. The facilities are amazing! The carers are so attentive and my LO just loves going. I'm been so impressed with how well they have got to know my daughter in the time she's been there. A great find!

We couldn't be happier with Guardian - Queen Street. Contrary to previous reviews, we have had such a positive experience. We find the staff not only super friendly but very attentive to our son. The centre itself is only about a year old and they constantly change the environment to engage the children. They are always posting summaries of the daily activities on Storypark and they're always different and things I wouldn't think of at home. I get a genuine sense that the staff really care about our son and that's a comforting feeling.

Learn More About Our Centre

Guardian Childcare & Education Queen Street is a bustling early learning centre on Queen Street and Adelaide Street in the Brisbane CBD. We have relationships with many of the local businesses and offices, making our Centre a safe and secure environment for children in working families.

For children aged four and five years, we have a kindergarten program that ties in with childcare to provide all the benefits of long day care while providing your child with the best possible preparation for primary school.

Some of the key benefits of our kindergarten program are:

  • Your child will be developing fundamental skills and knowledge in a learning environment that responds to their needs in a changing world. This means that each child’s unique skills, stage of development, and challenges will be taken into consideration at kindergarten.
  • Our kindergarten and preschool curriculums are based on world-leading research and best-practice teaching and deliver on the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) and the National Quality Standards (NQS).
  • The program is led by bachelor-degree Teachers and highly experienced educators, meaning you can feel confident that we understand your child, their development, and their learning.

At Guardian Queen Street, we believe that strong connections with the local community are one of the most important aspects of child development. We regularly take the children out on fun and adventurous excursions to the nearby Brisbane River, the Queen Street Mall, The Brisbane City Botanic Gardens, and the local library.

These excursions provide children with the opportunity to interact with the public in a safe and secure setting. Educators help children practice their social skills, build their confidence and develop their independence, ultimately boosting development and providing progress toward key milestones.

Our Centre is conveniently located in the heart of the Brisbane CBD, with plenty of public transport nearby. We can provide the opportunity for families to spend some time with their children on the way to work, dropping them off as they get to the city rather than closer to home. You may also choose to visit your child throughout the day, and we welcome families to drop in and have a chat at lunchtime or at other stages throughout the day.

We make drop-offs and pick-up times a meaningful experience with learning opportunities and the chance to interact with families. These are great times for you to come into the Centre and take a look around the learning environment while exploring the various materials and activities we have for the children.

We’re proud to be a multicultural team, with Educators and Teachers who speak a wide variety of languages other than English. This helps to create a fair and inclusive environment where children feel free and empowered to be themselves and explore their own cultural identities. It also helps children develop an understanding of inclusion and respect for their peers’ differences.

We develop each child’s literacy and numeracy skills to help them feel confident and prepared during the challenging leap into primary school. Our program supports the needs and routines of each of our families, and we ensure each child’s cultural background is supported and encouraged.

As part of our unique Visible Learning Program, families will be able to gain an understanding of their child’s education. Our Learning Exchange Display will provide the opportunity for our Teachers and Educators to share updates on your child’s progress. It will also be a chance for you to have direct input into your child’s learning!

Families will have access to our communication app Storypark, allowing us to share important Centre updates, as well as exciting activities or milestones – ensuring that you remain connected, day-to-day.

Guardian Childcare & Education Queen Street boasts a passionate and experienced team of Educators and Teachers who have a passion for early learning. We work to understand each child’s development and to support them in their learning and growth. If our new childcare centre is near you, consider taking a look at how we can provide a great start to life for your child.

If you travel to the Brisbane CBD for work each day, Guardian Queen Street is a safe, inclusive and fun environment for your children to develop and grow in their first few years of life! Book a tour and meet the team today!

The centre is always clean and there is calming music as well as a diffuser which is switched on in the office/foyer which makes the transition from home to the service a relaxing experience.The service is well resourced, this has obviously made it easy for the development of children to occur naturally and holistically.Something that we particularly love about this exceptional service is the dedication, commitment and quality of educators. Ariel, Joanna, Manpreet, Aries, Naing (to name a few) have impacted our lives in the most positive way & for that, we are eternally grateful. Story Park posts are informative and helpful and most importantly, updated daily.The food at the service is made by professional chef Aleksey who ensures that the children are not only exposed to a wide variety of international dishes, but that they are also consuming healthy foods. My daughter always has seconds of everything!The only negative thing about Queen Street Guardian, is that your child will eventually have to leave (when they go toschool!).If you are looking for the most amazing, loving and beautiful service- LOOK NO FURTHER!!!

Our daughter attends Queen St in the nursery space and it has been such a wonderful experience for us.The educators are caring, compassionate, kind and take such good care of our baby girl. The curriculum is well planned and thorough. Our daughter is becoming such a social and confident butterfly, it’s been beautiful watching her grow since she started her early childcare journey with Guardian.Welcoming spaces, inclusive, diversity, collaboration, consistent communication and genuine care for children 💜

From the very beginning, the educators have been like a second family to Sophie - she still loves to go and play with her educators from Ruby (from her baby months) including Margie, Eileen, and Joan, because of the strong bonds formed then. In Opal green, she just loves her new educators Lauren, Ivy and Trojan. There are many others who greet her each day. Sophie enjoys going to Guardian each day and we are thrilled with her development while being at Guardian.

Michelle, Emma and their team are absolutely amazing. They are always accommodating and put the children and families first. Our little one really came out of her shell by being here and we are so grateful! The centre itself is fantastic and the activities the children do from day 1 make such a difference to their development. Can’t sing their praises enough!

We have been attending the centre for just over 2 years now. The educators and centre manager could not be more nurturing and caring towards my daughter and our family. I could not be happier, could not recommend guardian queen street enough!

Guardian has been an exceptional experience for my oldest son who has been with the centre for over 2 years. We specifically sought out a centre that demonstrated the core values of a Reggio Emelia approach to early childhood learning and this has been so valuable in our son's development. The children are encouraged to explore their interests and curiosity in a warm and supportive environment. Hugs are always on offer for those tough moments and the educators knew my child's personality inside out. Communication through Storypark has been wonderful and the Kindy educator - Shayne - is a truly gifted teacher.Thank you to all the staff at Guardian Queen Street for giving our boy a great start to life.

I cannot rave enough about the Queen Street Guardian! I was nervous about starting my almost 2YO daughter as she had not been in any formal day care prior to attending. The facilities are amazing! The carers are so attentive and my LO just loves going. I'm been so impressed with how well they have got to know my daughter in the time she's been there. A great find!

We couldn't be happier with Guardian - Queen Street. Contrary to previous reviews, we have had such a positive experience. We find the staff not only super friendly but very attentive to our son. The centre itself is only about a year old and they constantly change the environment to engage the children. They are always posting summaries of the daily activities on Storypark and they're always different and things I wouldn't think of at home. I get a genuine sense that the staff really care about our son and that's a comforting feeling.
