Guardian Childcare & Education Point Cook South

Guardian Childcare & Education Point Cook South is a light-filled and homely Childcare Centre with a range of spacious indoor and outdoor areas designed to inspire curiosity and exploration.

The Centre boasts three custom-designed yards with vegetable gardens, fruit trees, mud pits, a wooden tepee, natural play structures and a range of other age-specific play areas.

At Guardian Point Cook South, the children get out and about on regular excursions to the local supermarket, the zoo, and Featherbrook Primary School who form an important part of our Kindergarten Program. This program is led by university-qualified teachers who are there to help prepare your child for the exciting transition to primary school.

As part of our community focus, we also have a dedicated parent café in our reception area, where parents can snack on coffee and cakes throughout the day as they do pick-up and drop-off. This community focus was recently on show as our children and families supported bushfire victims through a fundraising car boot sale.

According to Assistant Centre Manager Kim, “We came together to do what we can to assist with the fires currently burning in our country. Families arrived with car boots full to do their part to help. Many discussions with children and their parents were had about the importance of helping people around us who aren’t as fortunate as we are, who may not have the necessities like cereal or a toothbrush. It was amazing to see our community come together and be so generous.”

Our on-site cook prepares meals fresh in the Centre every day, using seasonal ingredients often collected by the children from our on-site vegetable and herb gardens. The Centre also hosts regular hands-on cooking classes for the children, which extends on their understanding of where food comes from and how to establish healthy habits for life.

Our Centre at Point Cook South inspires curiosity, foster creativity and support discovery with a variety of sensory-rich, real-world, sustainable spaces designed for early learning. The environment plays a huge factor in learning outcomes for children, so we pride ourselves on helping children and families feel welcome and able to build a sense of belonging, which supports our teaching.   

Children are provided with a wide range of resources and materials to inspire their learning and development. We focus on real-world, ‘open-ended’ materials that encourage creativity, problem-solving and physical development. This type of play launches children into an environment where the learning opportunities are endless.  

We’re also dedicated to health and wellbeing at Guardian Point Cook South. The health, safety and wellbeing of our people – big and small – is always our highest priority. We know parents are busy, so our policies – whilst grounded in safety – also consider life’s practicalities.

  • Excursions  
  • First aid  
  • Children and water play  
  • Sun protection for children

  • Handling incidents and injuries  
  • Illness procedures. 

We have additional healthy and safety measures in place such as designated pick up and drop off locations and procedures; routine temperature checks to manage illness; a diligent approach to hygiene and hand washing; and effectively raising and consulting on safety or wellbeing concerns. 

In addition, educating children about the importance of healthy eating and wellbeing is an important part of early childhood development. We believe in providing a positive eating environment that reflects dietary requirements, cultural and family values, and promotes lifelong learning for children.  

We’re also incredibly passionate about connections, communication and being an active part of our local community at Point Cook South. 

With excursions into our local community to explore and learn, plus a variety of incursions and in-Centre events – our practices and programs focus on collaboration, diversity, uniqueness and experiences that open up young minds to a world of possibilities.
