Guardian Childcare & Education Mulgrave East

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.

The Centre boasts light and spacious interior and exteriors, including herb and vegetable gardens, a treehouse, a creek bed, water play area, and natural play structures where 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.

At the heart of our Centre is a piazza where parents and children gather for family breakfast each morning, served by our on-site cook who also 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 to 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, parks, and visiting the families who work in our complex.
