This kindergarten is great. All three of my kids are studying here. I came here 8 years ago when my oldest kid was 1 year old. The teachers here are very patient. Even if the kids are crying, the teachers will try their best to comfort them and calm them down. Also, the second language here is Chinese. There are often Chinese classes. My kids even sing Chinese songs with me when they get home. Thank you teachers.💖💖💖

My kids received very good education and care on a daily basis, lovely management with Kayla and Hannah, and Chef Wenney is superb. Personally I had to mention my twins birthdays did not fall on their childcare days, but their educator Alhan took the initiative along with Chef Wenney and the team to still celebrate their bdays. It’s the people that makes the place wonderful.

We have nothing but good experiences with Guardian Chadstone since my son started there in June. It is so comforting to know he is so well looked after when my husband and I are working. He is always happy and super excited to go to daycare in the mornings. The centre keeps us up to date with regular photos and liaises with us regularly about his development and progress. I am also very impressed with the facilities available to the children, as well as the nutritious menu provided by the lovely chef Courtney (who posts photos of the food the children enjoy daily, so my mind is at ease that he is eating well). Mara, Nithya and Kanika have always been very receptive with any concerns I have had, and are easy to contact and quick to reply. I would highly recommend this childcare to anyone in the area and for children of any age.

Love kids is a safe and amicable environment for the children to nurture. My daughter has been going since she was 14 months and the best part is she loves going to love kids everyday. The educators are very kind and friendly with the kids. Everyday the kids learn new thing and individual attention is given to the kids. The story park is a wonderful feature which is being updated every single day.The parents at work feels so good to see the pics of the children with happy faces in the story park app.The transition from one room to another is made with ease and children's happily move to the next rooms. They get familiarised with the new educators before they start in the new room.Daljeet and her team is awesome. I am thankful to all the educators in the centre.

Welcome to our Centre

Guardian Childcare & Education Chadstone boasts a range of exciting, resource-rich environments, including a beautifully designed yard with a cubby house and water pump. Our light-filled and homely day care centre in Chadstone also has sandpit areas, worm farms, vegetable gardens, compost bins and a range of age-specific workplaces and play areas.

The first five years of your child’s life are incredibly important when it comes to social and emotional development and setting them up with a love of learning that lasts a lifetime. That’s why at our Chadstone early learning centre, we’re focused on supporting children how to learn versus just ‘ticking a box’. This play-based education approach comes to life in our two year funded Kindergarten Program, which is led by degree-qualified teachers who are there to help prepare your child for the exciting transition to school.

At our child care in Chadstone, we are proud to have a culturally diverse team and celebrate a variety of cultures and holidays throughout the year. In addition to hosting a range of visitors throughout the year, the children go on regular excursions out into the community. We keep families up to date with all of this daily activity through our family communication app StoryPark.

Our on-site Cook prepares nutritionally balanced and delicious meals using seasonal ingredients every day. The children and educators often collect herbs and vegetables from the gardens to add to the daily meals and to use in regular hand-on cooking classes. These experiences help the children develop an understanding of good nutrition and encourages them to try new foods.

The Victorian Government offers funding to provide families up to 15 hours of Free Kindergarten a week, in addition to the Childcare Subsidy. The funding offsets the fees for three and four-year-old children that are part of the centre’s long day care Kindergarten program. Families will save up to $2,050 a year for children aged three years old and above in eligible long day cares in 2024. Ask us for more information when you visit our Centre. 

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!

Begin the adventure at our Guardian Chadstone daycare today by booking a tour to explore!
