Guardian Childcare & Education Point Cook South
Every day is an opportunity for discovery and growth at Guardian Childcare & Education Point Cook South. With a range of exciting, resource-rich environments – including three custom-designed yards – children are encouraged to explore and learn.
The light-filled and homely centre also has vegetable gardens, fruit trees, mud pits, a wooden teepee, natural play structures, and a range of age-specific ateliers.
Children get out and about on excursions, so we have a great connection with the surrounding community. We visit locations such as local supermarkets, the zoo, and Featherbrook Primary School, whom we have a great relationship with.
We are proud to have a culturally diverse and celebrate a variety of cultures and holidays. As part of our community focus, we have a dedicated parent cafe in our reception area, where parents can snack on coffee and cakes throughout the day.
Our on-site cook prepares five nutritionally balanced meals using seasonal ingredients every day. To further explore food at the centre, our Educators host cooking classes for the children to get involved in to enhance their understanding of good nutrition.

Take a Look Around
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 for conversation to share what's important for the day/what's happened the night before at home.
Breakfast time where families are welcome to stay and enjoy breakfast with the children.
As children are arriving and families are coming and going, there's an opportunity for play as well as family grouping, open-plan play and multi-age grouping.
As the children come together, planned experiences begin. This is where the Guardian programs and practices come to life. Examples of learning include numeracy, literacy, language, critical thinking, problem solving, leadership, social skills, technology, science, creative arts, curiosity and more.
There's an opportunity for children to come together and enjoy morning tea.
Following morning tea, the planned experiences continue. This includes both indoor and outdoor programs.
There's an opportunity for children to come together for lunch. With an open-door policy, families are able to join the centre for meals and excursion if they wish.
For children who want to, or need to, there's an opportunity to sleep, rest or relax. For children who don't need to rest, there are planned experiences, which are more likely to be outdoors.
Children come together for afternoon tea in small groups or with siblings (they can also rest and play together, too). This time also presents an opportunity to reflect on the day.
End of the day
As families arrive to pick up children, there's an opportunity to speak to Educators and share information about the day.
End of the day
Some centres offer early tea or light snack at the end of the day, which they can grab as they leave the centre. We’re mindful of how routines vary at home, so if throughout the day, we notice children look tired, food will be provided.
Open 6:30am to 6:30pm

Learn More About Our Centre expand_more
Guardian Childcare & Education Point Cook South is a clean, fresh and spacious child care centre, with beautiful natural light that streams into every room. Outside, a love of nature is fostered through three custom designed spaces.
Our nursery children have a secluded space in which to safely explore nature with friends their own age. Our toddler yard have a large shaded space perfect for picnics, with construction materials and a home corner for imaginative play. Finally, our large yard is complete with two large sandpits and a digging patch, as well as logs, rocks and mud pit for the most adventurous explorers!
The children love visits from families and special guests, with the opportunity to learn about everything from pets and recyclable materials to musical instruments. Cultural celebrations are also popular, predominantly Indian and Chinese, to honour the backgrounds of many of our children.
Our qualified chef cooks delicious multicultural meals based on the latest nutritional guidelines for children. All religious and dietary requirements are catered for, with a seasonal menu that rotates every five weeks.
Our experienced team of educators encourage the children to make choices about what they want to learn, at their own pace. While flexibility is promoted, personal and educational growth is always paramount.
We believe in creating strong and lasting relationships with families, who are welcome to get involved in everyday life at the centre. From helping with the settling in process to discussing development, our door is always open to ensure you and your child feel happy, confident and secure with our service.

What Our Families Say
“It’s not easy to leave your child in the care of someone else, however, from day one I can comfortably say that your staff have always provided the best care for both my children. I always see all the great things they do with the children but most importantly they are always there to comfort the children and take such great care of them.”
– Ivana Dusenjko, Mickleham Road, Vic
"The transition into childcare was made easy by the supportive and compassionate staff. Daily communication (both email and verbal) kept me up to date with my daughter's progress socially, emotionally and intellectually. The 'child centred' approach is amazing; for my child to make connections to her own world and experiences. She loves going.”
– Sarah Collingwood, Jacaranda – Sunnybank, Qld
"“The team are passionate about being early childhood Educators. The environment is filled with many indoor and outdoor activities allowing a child-led development by following their natural interests (inspired by Reggio Emilia). A philosophy we follow in our home. My four-year-old daughter’s language and social skills have improved greatly.””
– Angela K, Lane Cove, NSW
