Guardian Childcare & Education Point Cook West

(Formerly Explorers Early Learning -Point Cook)

Guardian Childcare & Education Point Cook West is bursting with incredible resources in both the indoor and outdoor environments. In addition to light-filled indoor spaces, there are three large outdoor areas for each age group. The Centre offers art, gardening, music and French programs, as well as speech therapy.

Guardian Point Cook West also includes a thriving community garden and a number of loving pets for the children to enjoy and learn from.

As part of our outstanding commitment to high quality care and education, children and families at Guardian Point Cook West also have the benefit of a Kindergarten Program led by quality Teachers who are there to help prepare your child for the exciting transition to school.

The team at Guardian Point Cook West use the family communication app StoryPark to stay connected and ensure families are kept up-to-date about what’s happening. We share photos, videos and updates about the experiences the children are doing throughout each day, and the learning outcomes delivered from these. This ongoing partnership promotes continuity of learning and ensures our families feel connected to what is happening in the Centre at all times.

As part of our commitment to health and wellbeing, our dedicated on-site chef prepares nutritionally balanced meals using seasonal ingredients every day. The children also have the opportunity to participate in hands-on cooking classes using ingredients sourced from our vegetable and herb gardens.
