Guardian Childcare & Education Chadstone

(Formerly Love Kids)

Guardian Childcare & Education Chadstone boasts a range of exciting, resource-rich environments, including a beautifully designed yard with a cubby house and water pump. The light-filled and homely Centre 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 Guardian Chadstone we’re focused on teaching children how to learn versus just ticking a box. This approach to education comes to life in our Kindergarten Program, which is led by qualified teachers who are there to help prepare your child for the exciting transition to school.

At Guardian 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.
