Guardian Childcare & Education South Melbourne

Guardian Childcare & education South Melbourne is conveniently located in Melbourne city, bordered by Southbank, Port Melbourne, Albert Park and Middle Park. The beautiful Centre boasts a range of exciting, resource-rich environments and recently renovated indoor and outdoor spaces – including a rooftop garden, central atrium, water play areas, a vegetable garden, and natural climbing structures.

At Guardian South Melbourne children are encouraged to explore and learn, with the added benefit of a Kindergarten Program led by quality teachers who are there to help prepare your child for the exciting transition to school.

As part of our community focus at Guardian South Melbourne, we run an excursion program to locations such as local parks, the South Melbourne Market, Emerald Hill Library and the Botanical Gardens.

Our community-minded team also hosts family breakfast each morning in our dedicated piazza, and our on-site cook prepares five nutritionally balanced meals using seasonal ingredients every day. The open kitchen allows children to interact and watch our cook prepare their meals, which enhances their understanding of good nutrition and encourages them to try new foods.
