Guardian Childcare & Education Coorparoo

(Formerly Hopscotch House)

Guardian Childcare & Education Coorparoo is one of more than 15 magical Guardian Childcare Centres across Queensland. The light-filled and spacious Centre has a mix of indoor and outdoor learning environments and boasts an exciting sustainability program that all the children love participating in.

The teachers and educators at Guardian Coorparoo provide wonderful learning programs for the children, including a leading Kindergarten Program that will help prepare your child for the exciting transition to primary school.

With a range of exciting, resource-rich environments including a vegetable garden, chickens, a cubby house, a mud pit and a range of age-specific spaces and play areas, children are encouraged to explore and learn throughout the day.

Our on-site chef, Elaine, prepares five delicious and nutritious meals every day, which the children enjoy alongside their peers and educators in our homely Centre environment. Elaine has a wealth of experience, having trained in London as a chef, and working in the childcare sector for many years. She loves nothing more than creating food experiences for the children to explore nutrition and help establish healthy food habits for life.

Guardian Coorparoo has an incredible commitment to community, recently on show when the children decided to write letters of appreciation to local firefighters in response to the devastating fires in Queensland and New South Wales in the summer of 2019.

Guardian Coorparoo teacher Lucy explains the initiative: “Brisbane has had many days of poor air quality and ash from the fires across Queensland and New South Wales recently, and we’ve had to keep the children inside to protect them. Staying indoors led to a conversation about how bad the fires were and what this meant for the community. The children were concerned for the firefighters and wanted to thank them for keeping us safe.”
