Guardian Childcare & Education Laurimar

Guardian Childcare & Education Laurimar is big on space, with a large outdoor yard that includes a sprinkler, a wooden fort, purpose-built hills and tunnels, a worm farm, native plants, and a range of age-specific play areas.

Guardian Laurimar is one of more than 40 Guardian Childcare Centres in Melbourne and around Victoria, and is a convenient choice for local families seeking high-quality care and education for their children.

The 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.

The Guardian Laurimar team are always coming up with wonderful and creative ways to teach the children about the world around them, and recently contributed to our online Learning Exchange piece looking at activities to keep children entertained at home.

Our on-site cook prepares nutritionally balanced and delicious meals for the children, using seasonal ingredients, every day. With an open kitchen and dining piazza, meals are always social and provide the opportunity to explore nutrition and general conversations about food with the children. We also host hands-on cooking classes for the children.

We invite you to begin your adventure at Guardian Laurimar today by booking a tour to explore the Centre, or speak with our team of Educators to learn more about our approach to high-quality care and education.
