Guardian Childcare & Education Mulgrave East

Join us for Saturday Tours on 25th June!

Guardian Childcare & Education Mulgrave East is conveniently located south-east of the Melbourne CBD and ideal for families in the suburbs of Notting Hill, Wheelers Hill, Clayton, Glen Waverley and Springvale.

Guardian Childcare & Education Mulgrave East, East Mulgrave boasts a light and spacious interior and exteriors. The Centre’s herb and vegetable gardens are the perfect places to see our multi-age learning approach in action. The garden is a great place to learn about sustainability and responsibility, plus a connection to the natural world. Our high-quality, well-resourced outside environments also include a treehouse, a creek bed, a water play area, and natural play structures, all of which are places children are encouraged to explore and learn.

The Teachers and Educators at Guardian Mulgrave East provide wonderful learning programs for the children, including a leading Kindergarten Program for those preparing for the transition to primary school.

Our kindergarten learning program provides an inclusive learning environment, learning continuity and an uninterrupted transition through the early years and on to school. You can choose to do one or both years of childhood education programs. Strong, trusted relationships between children, families and our passionate Educators set the foundation and the opportunity for children to thrive. 

Our Centre’s heart is a piazza where parents and children gather for family breakfast each morning, served by our on-site cook who prepares a range of delicious and nutritious meals in the Centre kitchen. We also offer hands-on cooking experiences for the children to further their nutrition knowledge and encourage them to try new foods.

We are proud to have such a culturally diverse team of Educators and celebrate a variety of cultures and holidays in our Centre throughout the year. And as part of our community focus, the children enjoy excursions into the local neighbourhood to locations such as local cafes and parks and visit the families who work in our complex. We’re passionate about connections, communication and being an active part of our local community at every Guardian Centre.

As a way to stay connected to families, families will have access to our family communication app StoryPark. Here, we will share any significant updates on your child’s day today and any other important updates that happen in the Centre.

We value the role of families as a child’s first teacher. We’re committed to developing trusting relationships by listening and responding to families about all aspects of their child’s learning and development. So, our approach is focused on the latest research and insights into how children learn best and the specific skills they will need to thrive.

We use our own bespoke program of Visible learning to bring you along and witness your child’s progress first-hand. The Learning Exchange is a display in each learning space showing what your child is doing on any given day. Here, our Teachers and Educators will share with you any significant updates on your child’s development and your child’s education and provide the chance for you to share your own goals and visions – providing direct input into your child’s educational journey! 

Our Early Learning Childcare Centre welcomes children from 6 weeks to 6 years old. We have a dedicated Baby Ambassador in our nursery room to help ensure that your child’s experience with us is a beautiful one that your whole family can enjoy.
