Guardian Childcare & Education Kew East

(5)

Guardian Childcare & Education Kew East is one of more than 40 state-of-the-art Guardian Childcare Centres in Victoria. Located only 8km from the Melbourne CBD, it is a convenient choice for local families needing care close to home or on their way to the city for work. With easy drop off and pick up in the morning and evenings, Guardian Kew East makes life a little easier for families juggling the day-to-day commitments of life with a young family.

With a range of exciting, resource-rich environments – including two spacious indoor/outdoor play areas, Guardian Kew East is bursting with opportunities for children to play and learn. In this light-filled urban oasis, there are herb and vegetable gardens, a trough for water play, a sandpit, a two-tier bridge, wooden play structures and two levels of open-plan spaces where our programs come to life.

Our team of professionally-certified early childhood educators and teachers deliver an advanced play-based and nature-inspired curriculum, as well as a leading Kindergarten Program to help prepare your child for the exciting transition to school.

Children also have the chance to get out and about on weekly excursions, so we have a great connection with the surrounding community. We visit locations such as local cafes, parks and the high street. The children also love visiting our local fruit supplier and picking out produce to use in meals, prepared by a dedicated on-site cook.

Our cook prepares all meals fresh each day in the Centre kitchen, where children also participate in frequent hands-on cooking classes that extend their knowledge of good nutrition. The children and Educators also often collect herbs and vegetables from the Centre’s gardens to add to the daily meals and use in their cooking classes.
