Rhythm of The Day
With endless possibilities, there’s never a dull moment at Guardian and no two days are the same. Here’s what a day at Guardian might look like. Please note, this will vary depending on centre opening hours.
Handover time with children, families and our friendly Educators. There’s a chance to share what’s important for the day and any news from home.
Breakfast time where families are welcome to stay and enjoy breakfast with the children.
An opportunity to play and discover with open-plan play in family groups and multi-age groupings.
Planned experiences. This is where the Guardian difference comes to life. Alongside our Educators your child’s exploration leads to learnings in numeracy, literacy, language, critical thinking, problem solving, leadership, social skills, technology, creative arts and much more.
An opportunity for children to come together for a healthy snack, often they help prepare their food alongside our carers and chef.
Individually tailored to your child’s needs and curiosity the planned experiences continue, this includes both indoor and outdoor programs.
Another nutritious meal expertly prepared by our chef. Families are invited to join the children for meals and excursions if they wish.
If your child wants to, or needs to sleep, it’s time to rest and recharge. For children who don’t need to rest the planned experiences continue, in most cases outdoors.
Another chance for the children to come together and re-fuel in small groups. There is also an opportunity to rest or play together and reflect on the day.
As you arrive to pick up your child, there’s a chance to speak with our Educators and share news about the day. Our Storypark App also allows you to stay in touch 24/7 wherever you are.
End of day
Your child is encouraged to grab a light snack as they leave the centre. We’re mindful of how routines vary, throughout the day if we notice your child looking tired food will be provided.

My son has been at the centre since he was around 8 months old and I’m so glad I made the decision to send him here. He absolutely loves his educators and friends. I can always count on the educators to provide him top quality care with such skill and passion for their job. The atmosphere, culture, vibe, food are all amazing. Management are top quality too an always very helpful and welcoming which is a bonus!
Such an incredible centre! My 3 kids absolutely adore the educators and enjoy going each day. They settle in so well, basically running through the doors at drop off. My kids being Aboriginal, the centre incorporates their culture in so well and so beautifully and respectfully as well as other cultures. The food on the menu looks delicious and healthy exposing my kids to food they wouldn’t normally try at home, my fussy eater now likes to eat different kinds of food. So many great things about this centre, no cons at all. The space is super clean and feels very comforting and safe.
Cannot recommend this child care centre enough. The team have endless fun and educational activities for the children and my boy has absolutely blossomed since being here. He was born a week before Melbournes first lockdown and I was worried about his lack of social interaction. The skills and characteristics he is developing is a credit to your centre. Thank you for everything you do for our kids and treating them like family 💜

Beautifully kept centre, really kind staff and nice fresh food availability for the children. I highly recommend this childcare centre because the staff are very accommodating to the children's needs with daily updates
My 2 kids go to the Centre and I can’t fault Guardian. All the teachers and office staff have been amazing, my kids are so happy at the Centre. The room teachers are always so kind and loving with the kids and the kinder room has a fantastic educational program that has seen my 4 year old build so much confidence and intelligence in preparation for school next year. The management team are always supportive and accommodating, we’ve loved being part of the community at laurimar guardian
Educators have been so supportive and understanding when helping our COVID baby transition into the new environment. The management team have been incredible! I’ve never been so happy at a child care centre. The educators care so much about their roles in each child’s life. It means so much as a mother to be a part of the Guardian community!

My son had the best experience being looked after by the team at Guardian. The centre is always immaculately clean, with amazing set ups, activities and incursions for the kids. The staff always go above and beyond to make him feel secure and happy and looked after, I always have total trust leaving him with them. Couldn’t be happier with our time there :)

Since starting at the start of the year our son had absolutely loved going to daycare. He enjoys seeing the educators and the bond he has with each one is so special. Looking forward to more learning here!
My son started at Guardian when he was just 5 months old and he really likes coming here every morning. The staff and educators are so caring, loving and fantastic. They take care of kids like their own. Chef is wonderful and cooks delicious meals. I highly recommend this center. :)
We love guardian! Our daughter started at guardian childcare a few months ago and the team there has made it a wonderful transition for our daughter and family. The staff are exceptional, wonderful people. They take excellent care of our daughter and you can tell they genuinely care about her- she always has a huge smile on her face when greeting her educators in the honeysuckle room. Management is excellent to deal with and the communication has been exceptional. Thank you Laurimar Guardian childcare and the beautiful team in the Honeysuckle room.

My daughter started at Guardian Laurimar shortly after its opening in early 2018, and the Centre has gone from strength to strength since that time. My son has since joined the Centre, and it's been wonderful to see both of my children grow and develop under the guidance of Lucy and her brilliant team of educators. The facilities are excellent, and the children are provided with nutritious meals cooked on site by Trish and Alice. It's also lovely to follow my children's daily learning experiences on the Storypark app. I highly recommend Guardian Laurimar to families looking to enrol their child in an inclusive and supportive early learning centre.

We could not be happier with Laurimar Guardian. They are truly amazing. From the general manager, Lucy and her speedy response rate (nothing is ever a problem for Lucy). To the friendly reception staff and educators. It's so comforting when you walk in and they all say hello to your child by name. You can tell the educators genuinely care for the children and provide them with so many fun activities to learn and grow.The menu is great - very healthy & lots of variety.You also receive daily updates and photos which gives you the greatest peace of mind seeing them so happy.Deciding where to send your children for care is a big decision and I couldn't recommend this centre more highly.
Amazing centre - always clean, professional ran, helpful and caring staff. My son has been going for two years and loves it!
Guardian Laurimar is the best child care center I have seen. I have two boys and they have attended two child care before. I am so lucky to be referred to this beautiful center and my boys love the center and teachers so much. They are more confident and happier every morning when they on the way to the child care. We live in Bundoora which is far away from this center, but we still choice the Guardian Laurimar.Lucy and the educators are very kind and professional. They have a lot of passion on every children and families. They have an amazing team which is the best I know. Every question from the family is easy to be resolved. The educator not only provide the good and professional care to the children, they also focus on the education program to everyone.If you choice the child care center for your child, Go to visit the Guardian Laurimar, you will know how amazing they are.

Our children have been attending Guardian Laurimar since it opened and we couldn’t be happier with the Centre. The staff are wonderful and helpful and communicative, the meals are healthy and delicious and most importantly, the kids love it!
Picking a place to take care of your children is not an easy task! We have been so very fortunate to have Guardian Laurimar taking care of our boy. The staff is like a second family to our son.Highly recommend and wishing them to grow more and more..all the best
My son has progressed so well and gained so much confidence. The staff are all amazing and treat my child like he is family.. Hudson loves creche!
Exceptional in every way. Our daughter has attended Guardian Laurimar for almost 18 months (from 12mths). Every aspect of the centre is of the highest quality: from their policies and procedures, to management (who always have time to answer our questions), to their learning programs for the kids, their awesome chefs in the kitchen who ensure our girl is being fed the best nutrition, to their dedicated and passionate educators in the rooms. She always has a fantastic time and comes home happy and excited about her experiences, and, more importantly, has a real connection with her educators. We wouldn't contemplate sending her anywhere else.
Lucy and her team are brilliant. The care they show towards the children is exceptional. Asking a question is never too much trouble, the team always quick to assist.The educators in the room take the time to get to know individual children really well, and you can see the genuine care they have for them.My son has been at the centre since it’s opening day, he graduates of to school at the end of this year.Thank you for care you have shown towards him and our family during our time at Guardian.

My daughters both go to Guardian Laurimar, and our experience has been the best we could possibly ask for. Between the great facilities, the nutritious meals provided and the amazing staff who treat the children like their own, we could not recommend the place more!

The staff are great with the children, meals are cooked fresh and healthy. My children love going to this centre to see their friends and workers everyday. Highly recommend Guardian Laurimar.
This is the best centre in our area ❤️ the staff are so caring and do such an amazing job. My son has attended since he was 7 months old and has loved it. It makes it much easier leaving him there knowing he is getting the best care. Thank you all so much xx

Amazing teachers, great resources, happy children.
They have helped us with our child's growth so much. We are so glad we choose here for our child's kinder years and wish we came earlier. It has been the best move for us.
Guardian Laurimar is an amazing day care centre, our daughter has been there since she was 9 months old. The centre is always clean and well maintained but it’s the educators and the team that make this centre 5 star! Even as babies the room have educational activities, fantastic play opportunities and a variety of healthy food. They made me feel comfortable from day 1 (when I was very nervous) and have adapted to any of our requests and supported us all the way! Thank you for all you do in caring for our daughter!
This is an amazing place for your kids. Both my kiddies were very nervous when starting and the staff made them so welcome. My kids ask to go to daycare on the weekends. It’s like a big family all meals are fresh and the kids love eating them. The staff are so kind and welcoming. Lucy the manager is personable and even when we see her down the street she has a smile on her face and always says hello.
Gaurdians is a beautiful child care facility, they have a wonderful chef who prepares delicious and healthy meals and the teachers are so loving and caring. My son absolutely loves going there.
Excellent child care facility. The staff are very friendly and welcoming and my son always has a great time here. He has made significant improvements in his learning from his time here.
