Welcome to Guardian Childcare and Education Queen Street, a spacious, open-plan day care centre in Brisbane CBD. Our childhood education programs are focused on play-based learning, where our spacious day care and child care centre provides a nurturing and stimulating environment for children aged six weeks to six years of age, supporting them to discover the world in a safe and secure way.

Our Queen Street Brisbane day care and child care centre has an ‘Exceeding’ rating and is conveniently situated for families working or living in suburbs such as Brisbane city, Spring Hill, Fortitude Valley and Petrie Terrace.

Our exciting, resource-rich environments include:

  • Passionate Educators who focus on relationships with children and families
  • Beautiful, light-filled learning spaces with indoor gardens and a focus on sustainability designed to inspire curiosity, fun, and a sense of belonging
  • Engaging outdoor area with city views, water play, and sandstone play areas where children are encouraged to explore and learn

Supported through a passionate and dedicated team of University-qualified Teachers and Educators, our child care and day care centre in Queen Street Brisbane is an inclusive learning environment for children where a personalised approach to learning opportunities ensures children are supported to be bold, creative, and curious in their learning journey.

Children at our Brisbane CBD early learning centre are taken on and about regular excursions, creating a strong connection with our local community. Locations include Brisbane River to watch the City Cats, Queen Street Mall, the Botanical Gardens and the local library.

Children attending our Brisbane CBD day care and child care centre will also have the chance to see the same familiar faces as they move on up from our nursery room, into our Kindergarten program, designed specifically to help prepare your child transition from early learning to primary school.

As part of our unique Visible Learning Program, families will also have the chance to gain an understanding of their child’s learning. Easily accessible for families, our Learning Exchange Display provides the opportunity for our Teachers and Educators to share with you any updates on their progress every day. You will also have the chance to share with us your own personal goals and visions for us to implement, having direct input in your child’s educational journey!

Families will also be given access to our family communication app Storypark, where we will share with you any significant updates in your child’s day, as well as any other important updates that happen in the centre – ensuring that you’re always connected, even when you’re not here.
