Guardian Childcare & Education Oakleigh East

(Formerly Coco's)

Guardian Childcare & Education Oakleigh East is one of more than 40 incredible Guardian Childcare Centres across Victoria. The Centre is big on space with four incredible outdoor areas where children are encouraged to explore and learn.

The light-filled and homely Centre is a home-away-from-home for the children, with a wooden cubby house, herb and vegetable gardens, fruit trees, pet bunnies, weekly Mandarin lessons and yoga classes as part of our commitment to wellbeing. These spaces encourage the children to learn about the world around them through a play-based approach, with the added benefit of a Kindergarten Program led by university-qualified teachers who are there to help prepare your child for the exciting transition to school.

Children at Guardian Oakleigh East also have the opportunity to get out and about on weekly excursions, so we have a great connection with the surrounding community. We visit various locations in the area, including the local nursing home, park, and local primary school, which is an important part of our Kindergarten Program.

Our on-site chef at Guardian Oakleigh East prepares nutritious and delicious meals every day, using seasonal ingredients – some harvested by the children from our very own vegetable and herb gardens. To further explore food at the Centre, our chef and educators host regular hands-on cooking classes to enhance the children’s’ knowledge of nutrition and to encourage them to try new foods.
