My son has been attending Guardian Childcare at Rochedale South since April and we have had the best experience. This was our family’s first time putting a child in care and were naturally apprehensive. The entire team made the process so easy for us and helped us feel at ease. All staff have been so wonderful, my son is excited to go each morning and doesn’t want to leave each afternoon. If you’re in the area and looking for a great centre with the upmost caring of people, then look no further.

Welcome to our Centre

We have opened our doors and can’t wait to welcome your family to our new, purpose-built childcare centre in Rochedale South, where your child will be supported to be creative, bold and imaginative in their learning.

Our Guardian Childcare & Education Rochedale South early learning centre offers world-class facilities and is conveniently situated for families living near the northern suburbs of the City of Logan. Offering onsite parking, close proximity to public transport and a short drive to the local shopping centre, our Rochedale South daycare and kindergarten is a great choice for children aged six weeks to six years.

The care and education of every child is our top priority. Children are supported to explore their world in a safe and secure way within a warm and stimulating environment. The passionate, dedicated team of Teachers and Educators ensure that each child receives care tailored to their individual needs by providing a personalised approach to play-based learning.

Our exciting, resource-rich environments include:

  • Four purpose-built indoor learning spaces to inspire wonder, curiosity; full of high quality educational resources
  • Incredible programs such as Joy of Reading, Cooking, Outdoor Learning, Out & About Community Excursions, Sustainability and more!
  • Each age group has their own dedicated outdoor space, with an outdoor area that wraps around the entire Centre!
  • Specialist Baby Ambassador in the Nursery room – an expert on all things baby!
  • On-site Chef who cooks fresh, healthy meals daily in our fully equipped kitchen

Our Centre provides nappies, SPF 50+ sunscreen, all nutritious meals and snacks, high quality formula and bed linen.

Children will also have the chance to see the same familiar faces as they move on up from our nursery room, into our two year dedicated Kindergarten program, designed specifically to help prepare each child for a smooth transition from early learning to primary 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. 

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 can access 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.

Learn More About Our Centre

Guardian Childcare & Education Rochedale South is a warm and inviting Centre filled with fun and engaging programs, and provided by highly experienced, qualified Educators and Teachers. We provide a safe and secure environment where children can freely explore their world and discover new things through the fun of play-based learning.

We strive to provide our children with a variety of new and engaging experiences, so we have a broad range of programs that children can participate in at our Centre. These programs provide children with the opportunity to develop new skills, practice challenging themselves, and learn to engage their critical thinking and imagination.

Some of the programs we run regularly with the children are:

  • Joy of Reading – We provide children with the opportunity to develop a genuine passion for reading at an early age. Through teaching about different kinds of books and words, and fostering a literary understanding, children can develop the healthy habit of reading, providing various developmental benefits.
  • Cooking – We’re all about healthy nutrition, and our on-site chef prepares meals daily for the children to enjoy. We encourage children to engage in the food preparation process and develop confidence in playing an active role in their nutrition. Children regularly help select ingredients, prepare food, ask questions and learn about the various food groups and nutrients.
  • Outdoor Learning – Spending time outside is important for children’s health and wellbeing, and we believe in encouraging children to engage in play-based learning in an outdoor environment. Our Centre features a large grassy area for children to run around in, as well as a water feature and garden where they can freely explore the properties of nature.
  • Community Excursions – The children at Guardian Rochedale South enjoy regular excursions into the local community. Whether we’re heading around the corner to Rochedale South State School or to one of the beautiful local parks near our Centre, children are exposed to a variety of experiences that allow them to practice their communication skills while building independence and confidence.
  • Sustainability – Providing our children with an understanding of sustainability and a passion for the environment is important for us, so we engage in various activities and learning experiences that teach children about recycling and looking after the planet.

For children aged three and four years, we have an amazing kindergarten program that ties in with our long day care to support children in the lead-up to beginning primary school. Our preschool curriculum aims to develop confidence in some of the skills children will use with the increased independence that comes with the transition into primary school. We also begin to introduce shapes, numbers and phonics to help the children feel more ready and capable in those first few weeks.

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!

Guardian’s family communication app, Storypark, provides our Educators with the opportunity to keep families in touch with their child’s education through sharing photos, videos and messages. As one of our families, this may support you in continuing the learning at home.

Why not come and meet the team and have a look around our Centre today? We’d love to show you why Guardian Rochedale South is the perfect learning environment for your child. At Guardian, we believe that together, we can create life-long learners.

We look forward to welcoming you soon!
