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 cook.
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 cook. 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.

Guardian Childcare & Education Moorabbin is renowned for its warm and welcoming atmosphere, with clean and inviting spaces the children love to explore. Our large outdoor spaces are very versatile and provide plenty of open space for energetic bodies, and our undercover spaces mean the rain doesn’t spoil our fun.
Sports are very popular at our centre, as is our Jump for Joy music and movement program. Cooking classes are another favourite; inspired by our talented on-site cook who is much loved by our families, and prepares the fresh and nutritious meals daily. As a multicultural childcare centre, we also enjoy celebrating different cultures each month, and always invite our families to get involved.
Most of our enrolments are due to strong recommendations from current or past families, which reflect the great relationships our educators have built with local families over the years. We take the time to understand each new child’s history and background to ensure their unique needs are met. One-on-one discussions are commonplace, and families are encouraged to view their child’s portfolio and learn about their programs.
Our passionate educators love where they work, with high standards that translate into high quality care. To find out more about what our childcare centre has to offer, please contact our friendly team today!

For my family it's all the 1%-ers - the comments on pick up from her educators that show they really know my daughter, the change of clothes before pick up so she comes home comfortable and fresh and beyond that ALL staff truly know our family (by name, incl. grandparents!) and routine. They are very organised and centre management are all fantastic to deal with.I also like that updates throughout the day are just enough to feel connected/reassured & other communication is simple and in her note book - it means the educators are focussed on her and not focused on admin/constantly updating an app.

A loving, nurturing environment that has a strong focus on development. All educators are lovely, knowledgeable, and well organised. Overall they provide an excellent, inclusive services.
Our son has been attending toddler 1 for around a year, and he loves it! They do so many activities, and lots of outdoor time. A big thank you to Nasrin and the team for doing such a great job every day, its much appreciated!
Guardian Moorabbin is an excellent childcare our son gets looked after really well by carers as he loves to get ready and go to child care every morning. All the carers and Center manager are so friendly and very easy to approach and communicate. We get all the details of daily routines and activities kids are doing via the childcare app including photos and videos keep up the good work Guardian Moorabin.

The care and attention my girls get at Guardian Moorabbin is amazing. I never worry about them throughout the day as I know they are in good hands. My eldest daughter speaks about her teachers like they are family and tells them how much she loves them! 100% would recommend to other families anxious about starting daycare
My daughter has been at Guardian Moorabbin since April 2020. She started during the first covid lockdown and despite the daycare process and experience being quite different during this time - she was still really warmly welcomed and well oriented, and we had no issues with her integrating and thriving in the new environment. I can't speak highly enough of the educators at the centre. They are all incredibly warm, caring, attentive and FUN! They always have a smile on their face, they know all the kids by name (even those not in their room), and greet every kid with a bug hug/smile to make them feel special every day. The kids also have fantastic, diverse learning and play experiences - and are exposed to many different cultural traditions and ideas. We have enrolled our second child to start at the centre in the nursery later this year and are confident he will have the same great experience as his big sister.

My son has been attending Guardian Moorabbin for almost 1 year. It was very important to us with Covid restrictions to have a place where he can learn, grow and adapt social skills needed into adulthood. We are very happy with the knowledge and skill set the educators provide to help set him up for life. They not only are very invested in his development but also flexible to the parents needs. Thank you team for all that you do and we know we made the right choice in his education and Childcare.
The team at Guardian Moorabbin have been fantastic. Our son has been going there for the last 10 months from nursery to toddler 1 and has really thrived there. He gets lots of attention from everyone, he loves it and is excited to go. They have a good program in place that helps him grow and reach his milestones.Drop off and pick up is easy as the team are very helpful. The admin staff are very responsive and knowledgeable. They have a low turnover of staff.I can't recommend them enough.Thanks everyone, keep up the good work.
My daughter loves the team there. It's like dropping her off at an aunties house.

My son Kai has been going to this childcare since he was a baby. He has thrived so much with the care and education they provide here. I go to work knowing he is looked after. So happy with their amazing service, and communication is amazing as well. Super happy, and the staff are caring. I don't know what our family would do without them. :) Queenie
The educators in Toddler 2, Ange, Aurélie and Eunmi are tireless and dedicated educators who have provided outstanding care to our child. They are dedicated and balance education and development with fun and entertainment.
I love this centre, we have been attending the centre since 2015 and have only good things to say. From nursery through to the kinder room , the staff have been so caring and act like a second family to the kids. There has been a very low turn over of staff over the years which is always a good sign. We are currently in the toddler 2 room and kinder room. The kids do something new each day and learn so much. The centre has a secure online communication platform, our family overseas can login and see what the kids have been up to each day. Cannot recommend Guardian Moorabbin highly enough.
The best childcare in the area! I'm so happy with what my daughter has achieved in this centre. She surprises me everyday with what she learns. All the educators are caring and very attentive...everyone is family! It's a great atmosphere for developing your child's social and skills. And parking is so easy!!!
Absolutely beautiful! Our youngest daughter (2.5) attends here 3 days a week in Toddler 2. All of the staff are like family especially to our little one. Every night when our little girl goes to bed she says goodnight to all the kids by name and all the educators. She tells us all the time that she LOVES the educators (by name) and when we leave she insists on blowing them kisses goodbye. We feel so safe sending her and reassured with the care she receives. And if that didn't put our mind at ease the 30-60 photos we receive at the end of the day on Story Park along with a well written outline of the learning objectives really make us feel as if we were with her all day. Guardian Moorabbin was the best decision we've ever made for her education and wellbeing.

We have sent all 3 kids to this centre and are very happy with the teachers and carers. Our youngest is in toddler one room were she is looked after by Nasrin and her team whom are all very caring and professional. The majority of the room leaders have been with Gaurdian Moorabbin for many years and really create a lovely bond with all the families.
The toddler 1 room staff are amazing, kids love them. Very happy with the service.
My son has been going to Guardian Moorabbin now for 3 years. The best decision I made to move him here. The staff are absolutely amazing. The care they have for the children is brilliant. My son walks in with a smile every day. He has learnt so much from the great educators teaching him. The new centre manager Pryia is absolutely brilliant. Has brought such positivity to the staff, families and especially the children. The offer me such support through all the tough times and especially through Covid & Lockdowns, the centre remains to keep all the children safe and happy. I highly recommend this centre.

The educators are experienced and passionate. They looked after my child with great care and he has grown and learned a lot in the short span of 5 months in the childcare.
Where should I start from? they provides an exceptional customer service, quality time for bubs, great food and very professional attitude. Yes it may look not new center but for sure this place is trustworthy to have our kids there with piece of mind that they will be safe, in a good hand and surely having fun. Thank you so much for taking care of our little one :)
I sincerely appreciate all the staff in this center. They all provide excellent service and work very hard. My second son is so happy to be there and every morning eager to go and play with his friends. My first son also was in this center for 2 years and was very happy(he is in primary school now)Thanks so much to everyone in Guardian Moorabbin
I changed to this centre over a year ago. Best decision ever! Right from the beginning I felt confident that my daughter was going to get the care and education she needed because Karl (manager) asked what I was looking for from a childcare centre. I wanted my daughter to be 'school' ready so Karl placed her into the Kinder room to make sure that my needs were met. Karl and the team at Guardian make sure that not only do they look after your child but they also look after 'their families'.
Being a first time mother I had so much anxiety sending our son to daycare. My husband and I visited 8 different centres but none of them “felt right” - until we found Guardian Moorabbin. Whilst the facilities are lovely (clean, inviting rooms and a vibrant, huge outdoor area) it’s the staff who make this centre so special. You can feel and see the genuine care and love they have for the children, and I drop off my son in the morning knowing that he will be happy and cared for. I have met and spoken with many of the other parents at this daycare and they all have expressed the same sentiment, so I’m confident that this opinion is shared throughout the centre’s community. Another huge bonus for me is that it is tucked away behind Holmesglen TAFE, completely away from the main road and public walkways, which adds to it feeling very safe and secure (also being right near the Holmesglen hospital gives me more peace of mind in case of emergency). Love this place.
We could not be happier with the care, love, encouragement and support our child and our family has been provided at Guardian Moorabbin. Our daughter has flourished in their care and constantly talks about her educators, her friends and the many daily activities provided at the center. The staff have been professional at all times. They are highly responsive and proactively work with us while respecting our parenting style and our particular child's routine and needs. We love Guardian Moorabbin and the extended family they have created for us.

My children are both incredibly happy here. My kinder daughter asks me every day if she's going to care that day, she learns so much! The things she comes home explaining to me has me flawed.The educators are wonderful, always professional and always go above and beyond for my children.Never felt a centre that feels like home to us. I feel like I've found my extended village.Highly reccomend
Very polite staff. Well trained personnel.From grandparents of Saanvi.

Cannot recommend highly enough - the staff are amazing and are all long standing so have seen my kids from the baby room right through until kinder. It very much feels like a shared journey. The team are responsive to the needs of my family and we are very grateful for the quality care they provide. Words are not enough to describe the experience - it is the felt experience of people who know your kids and care about them and their development that makes this small and lovely centre stand out from the rest.
Cannot recommend enough. We visited and toured many centres around the Moorabbin/Highett area when looking to put our little one in Nursery and this centre was the hands down winner. We immediately felt comfortable, supported and not judged. The staff are very approachable and warm.The anxiety of leaving our baby for the first time greatly reduced knowing she was in great hands.3.5 years later and we now have 2 kids at the centre who are thriving. The educators are absolutely incredible, the girls tell me the food is amazing, they learn so much and have a great time playing. There isn't a day where they don't enthusiastically tell us all about the amazing day they have had.Could not be happier with our decision.
My eldest daughter has been going to Guardian Moorabbin for 2 and a half years now and we love it. She looks forward to going every day. All the educators have been amazing- nurturing, supportive and foster all types of learning. I trust them implicitly with the care of my child. My second daughter will be going mid year and I dont feel anxious at all. I highly recommend this child care centre.
Highly recommended!! Our family have been using Guardian Moorabbin over the last 4 years for our 2 kids, from nursery through to kinder and we cant praise them enough. The moment we visited on open day, it had a sense of 'family' and we loved that it was an intimate centre compared to others. Our kids have developed so much over the time and are given opportunities to learn through play, imagination, practice whilst still having structure. So many of the educators hold a special place in our hearts, they genuinely care and make our kids feel like rock stars every time walk in!

Very very inviting environment (except for the mess that Holmesglen is causing right now, although temporary but not the centre's fault).Good healthy food for all the kids with a great chef. Gentle & loving educators who never fail to say 'Good Morning' to each individual when we enter the pre-kinder room. My son loves to go there and always has stories to say about the daily activities conducted. Surely recommended and you will never regret! :)

My mind is at ease when i am at work - Happy, friendly, loving, nurturing and committed staff all round. Clean environment, nourishing food, brilliant carers/educators.... i have only good things to say.
finding best child care is most daunting task but living in Moorabbin close to guardian made my life easy. the most caring staff which makes my child loves to go to child care and never complains on anything. they always provide nutritious food and is always looking to provide new learning activities for the children. I highly recommend Guardian Moorabbin to anyone looking for a loving care for their little one/s.

I would not trust anyone else with the care of my child. I had a lot of difficulty with other services before I used Guardian but their understanding of my anxiety and the care they give my child, has more than confirmed that I made the right decision. I recommend them highly to anyone needing quality care. The activities they do, inside and outside, and the amount my child has learnt under their care is exceptional. I wont be going anywhere else.

Wow how great is the new yards. Just love natural feel, logs, sandpit and the big fort :)All the educators are just lovely and Ben loves to say hello to the centres birds and fish every morning.
