Absolutely loved how much support Chen and Dani have been to my son, they made him feel welcomed and have always tried to listen to my concerns and help me address them. I would also like to thanks Placida for her ongoing support and always understanding me as a parent and guiding us. After worst two last experiences I am really glad that this one has turned out to be the best.

Mel, Caitlin and the Wanda Street Guardian Team have been completely transformative for our child, in the best possible way. He started at Guardian after previously being enrolled at a different centre that we feel never truly made him feel welcome. We made the change to Love Kids/Guardian and from before Day One (thanks to some orientation hours) Mel and Caitlin had made him feel welcome and part of the 4yo Kinder room. He has absolutely blossomed since then. He doesn't complain or cry about drop-off like he did at the old centre. Instead he comes home excited about stories from his day or activities planned for the week, he's making friends and developing socially. His vocabulary and intellectual curiosity are rapidly growing. Friends and family are commenting about how different he seems this year, how much more confident he is and he has calmed down so much. He's a completely different child and we are delighted with his development. Placida the Manager, as well as all the fantastic teams in each room, the entire centre has helped to make my son feel much more comfortable and safe and cared-for, and we cannot thank them enough.If you are unsure about your child's current centre, and are worried about the transition to a new centre being too disruptive, well I can assure you that I've been in that exact situation and had the exact same concerns... but the Guardian team have addressed every concern, made our child feel cared-for and part of the community, and been fantastic communicators with our family every step of the way. I highly recommend this centre.

Our experience with Lovekids(Guardian), Mulgrave, started 14 yrs ago with our first son, last year our youngest "graduated" from them. From day one our kids felt at home with the staff. We feel like they become part of the family. I am sad that we had to leave them.

Welcome to our Centre

Guardian Childcare & Education Mulgrave South is a convenient childcare choice for families living in and around Windsor, Bligh Park, McGraths Hill and Oakville.

With a range of resource-rich environments – including a spacious open-plan yard – the modern yet homely Centre has herb and vegetable gardens, native trees, a fort and natural play structures where children are encouraged to explore and learn.

The first five years of your child’s life are incredibly important when it comes to social and emotional development, and setting them up with a love of learning that lasts a lifetime. That’s why, at Guardian Mulgrave South, we’re focused on teaching children how to learn versus just ticking a box. This approach to education comes to life in our Kindergarten Program, which is led by qualified teachers who are there 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. 

With a dedicated team of Educators who have been with the Centre for a long time, we are proud to be a culturally diverse Centre and celebrate a variety of cultures and holidays throughout the year. This extends the children’s knowledge of the world around them and increases their understanding of diversity.

Our on-site cook prepares nutritionally balanced meals using seasonal ingredients every day in our dedicated kitchen. This space also hosts regular hands-on cooking classes where the children and Educators collect herbs and vegetables from our gardens to add to the daily meals.

Begin the adventure at Guardian Mulgrave South today by booking a tour to explore the Centre or speaking with the team.

We’re Exceeding! What does that mean? Every six months, our Centres are assessed by ACECQA, the national body with the responsibility for monitoring the quality of all registered child care centres in Australia. A rating of Exceeding National Quality Standard means that you can be assured that this Centre is providing an exceptional level of care and attention for your child.
