Guardian Childcare & Education Prahran

(Formerly High Street)

Guardian Childcare & Education Prahran is rated exceeding in the National Quality Standard. The modern yet homely centre boasts a range of exciting and inspiring environments, including two spacious outdoor yards, a water pump, workshop area, vegetable gardens, a worm farm and two open-plan studios.

The teachers and educators at Guardian Prahran provide wonderful learning programs for the children, including a leading Kindergarten Program that will help prepare your child for the exciting transition to primary school.

Children also get out and about on weekly excursions from Guardian Prahran, so we have a great connection with the surrounding community, visiting a range of locations, including Victoria Gardens, Prahran Library, Prahran Markets and Lumley playground. This helps the children gain an understanding of the world around them and build connections into the wider community.

At Guardian Prahran, we’re proud to have a culturally diverse team and celebrate a variety of events and holidays throughout the year. We also love to get involved in local fundraising events which further extends on our community connections.

The children enjoy meals freshly prepared on-site by our dedicated chef, using seasonal ingredients often harvested from our very own gardens. In addition, our educators love hosting regular hands-on cooking classes with the children. These experiences enhance the children’s understanding of good nutrition and lay the building blocks for establishing healthy food habits for life.

Our Educators

Our team of Educators are committed and passionate about ensuring your child will be safe, nurtured and cared for every day. At Guardian, children are encouraged to engage in interest-led play that creates learning and meaningful experiences.

Our Educators seek to optimise diverse learning opportunities and implement the Curriculum as framed by the Early Years Learning Framework.

You and Your Child

All Guardian Centres provide a Centre-to-Family communication platform so families can maintain contact with their children’s experiences through photos, stories and learning outcomes.

Our Centres use Storypark and each family is provided with a secure login to access on their computers, mobiles or apps.

Learn More About Our Centre

We offer a comforting family home-style environment complete with reggio-inspired learning materials where children feel a sense of belonging, security, confidence and inclusion. Our well-appointed and large outdoor spaces allow children to explore our natural learning environments, tend to our vegetable patch or explore amongst the trees and flowers.

Our educators pride themselves on the relationships they build with our families and our centre’s connection to the community. We invest time and energy into understanding each family’s needs and wants for their child, offering a developmentally-appropriate ‘learn through play’ educational approach that encourages children to explore, discover and create through a variety of experiences.

Each day the children are fed seasonal fruits and vegetables from a menu that promotes healthy eating. We use as many natural and unprocessed foods as possible, incorporating dishes from many different cultures and encouraging the children to try lots of new and exciting flavours.
