Highly recommend Guardian Laurimar! My kids love attending the centre and they have a great relationship with their educators. My eldest attends pre kinder 3 days a week and asks to go everyday. The staff and management are very welcoming and make us feel welcome. I love looking at the daily learning and individual learning stories on storypark, knowing what my children have enjoyed doing and learnt throughout the day and over the weeks is great as we get to talk about this as a family in the evening/weekends and show other family members. My children also love Musical minds incursion, they both love music and dancing.

My kids being Aboriginal, the centre incorporates their culture in so well and so beautifully and respectfully as well as other cultures.

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 :)

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.

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.

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.

Welcome to our Centre

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 Victorian Government offers funding to provide families up to 15 hours of Free Kindergarten a week, in addition to the Childcare Subsidy. The funding offsets the fees for three and four-year-old children that are part of the Centre’s long day care Kindergarten program. Families will save up to $2,050 a year for children aged three years old and above in eligible long day cares in 2024. Ask us for more information when you visit our Centre. 

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.

Thank you for everything you do for our kids and treating them like family 💜

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 :)

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.

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.

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.

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.
