Guardian Childcare & Education Preston West

(Formerly Explorers Early Learning Preston)

Guardian Childcare & Education Preston West is a light-filled Centre bursting with incredible resources and indoor and outdoor environments for children to explore and learn. The Centre includes an art piazza, an outdoor dining space, community gardens, a messy play area, cubby houses, climbing equipment, sensory gardens, tepees and much more.

Guardian Preston West offers a leading Kindergarten Program, led by our university-qualified teachers which helps prepare our older children for the exciting transition to school. This program is in addition to the amazing learning experiences our dedicated Educators and Teachers prepare for children of all ages – from six months to six years.

Our children at Guardian Preston West love playing peek-a-boo, and Educator Yoyo Zhou recently shared this learning opportunity on the Guardian Learning Exchange. She incorporated a mirror into the game as another learning opportunity for the children. This is just one example of how our dedicated Teachers and Educators go above and beyond to deliver meaningful learning experiences for the children.

The team at Guardian Preston 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.
