Absolutely whole heartedly LOVE Guardian St Kilda North. My children are so cared for and their development has gone from strength to strength. The Educators take a personalised approach and feedback on our children's progress and learning. Our two girls are thrilled to be there daily and wake up and look forward to attending. We can't speak highly enough about this wonderful family at St Kilda North. Thank you to Mei and all the team.

My 14 month old son started at Guardian Childcare & Education St Kilda North in the baby room in August 2020 in the middle of stage 4 lockdown.I had an online zoom tour by the centre manager Jose who's very helpful and friendly, and I was very impressed by the facilities, staff and menu.The centre's and building covid procedures are excellent and gives me peace of mind My baby went to Gaby the baby room supervisor immediately on the first day of orientation.My baby settled in quickly and moved to the toddler room after a month and is thriving. They have many activities and I can see my son's rapid growth and understanding.The food is delicious and healthy and caters for my son's intolerance.It is important for me to get updates on how much he eats and his nappy changes which the staff are happy to show me daily.It was a big decision to move to Melbourne but Guardian Childcare & Education St Kilda North made my baby's transition easier, which made the entire move more enjoyable.Thankyou Jose, Mei, Jess, Gaby, Basuli, Marla, Lydia and everyone that I haven't mentioned.PS The underground carpark is a huge plus as we no longer have to run in the rainNov 2022 - Love the smaller classes compared to other huge centres, I feel there is more attention on each child. Lynda the chef serves a big interesting variety of healthy food daily to increase my child's taste buds.Mei goes above and beyond to accommodate for casual days and ALL the educators and staff are wonderful, especially Goun, Donna, Shruti and everyone in Raindrop. Thankyou All xx

The educators in the Sunnyside Room are not only professional but they care and love our son as much as we do. He loves going every day and we have so much comfort knowing he is being well looked after and cared for.

Great Centre, Amazing educators & caring management team. My 4 YO daughter loves going here and she has learnt a lot of things from this centre. Activities like Show & Tell really boosts the confidence among the children & their peers and she has started interacting with this world a lot more. Thank you Team! Keep up the good work.

We have been a member if this Centre for about 7 years now and I could not be happier with how my children have been looked after. I fully trust the whole team and my children feel like they are a part of a family when they are there. They feel safe, looked after, they are learning new things and skills every day and always with a smile on their face. One of my children learned how read and write in their kindy program and the other one (currently in kindy) is almost there. It is a very safe environment for the kids to express themselves in any way, the staff is amazing, great management, always willing to listen and help whenever they can. I’ll miss them once my second child start school. 😊

The Educators are guardian are amazing. They have been looking after our twins since they were 3 months old and the boys have just blossomed there.Run in for a fun day of playing and learning and don’t want to leave when we pick them up.

our children have attended full time for most of their lives there, our son for nearly 3 years to kinder now and our 2 yo daughter from 5 months in the nursery room till now. As full time working parents, we feel reassured that Guardian provides a safe and fun environment for them to develop. For us there’s no better way to describe it other than seeing the children enthusiastic going and happy coming home everyday.

Guardian St Kilda Road has become my son’s second home. He loves his teachers and friends. The teachers are amazing and the new management has done an awesome job in transforming the processes. I love that they are very responsive and communicate well with the parents be it over the phone, in person, emails or newsletters. They attend to the children’s needs and encourage their strengths and individuality. I feel confident that my son is learning, being looked after and enjoying each day in this centre. Well done everyone!

This childcare is absolutely fantastic. They have proper processes in place and the staff follows them religiously. It is full of caring and passionate educators who treated my child as a part of their family. I could leave my baby here without any worries. There are so many interesting activities even for a 6 month old baby. They have a curriculum which enhances children's development.Their chef, Lydia cooks amazing food which is healthy and yummy!The management listens to your concerns and tries its best to keep our minds at ease. This centre is a benchmark for a child care!I would like to thank all her educators and her carers who took care of her and if I could , I would definitely bring her back to this centre.Only reason we had to move her to another childcare in the suburb was because the travel to the city was getting hectic.

I cannot say enough good things about Guardian, St Kilda Road (woodlands). They have looked after my son for the past 19 months impeccably, and I have never had a single issue or incident with them. The only reason my son has moved, is that we have moved to a new area and he needs to go to Kinder with kids he will go to school with. Aymie is the centre manager who goes above and beyond and actions requests almost immediately. My son went into the Raindrop room in 2018, and I'm calling out Rhi and Jade in particular for the care and understanding they give my VERY high energy boy, who was the only one in the class who never had a nap. They are understanding, they have taught him so much - songs, rhymes, how to share, how to dance, how to make friends. Always grateful, and would recommend to anyone who wants not only a childcare centre, but somewhere their child can grow. Thanks to all there. - Lyndsey Walker.

My son loves this place. He has been coming here since the 2nd of July last year for 2 days per week. He looks forward to coming to see his friends and his favourite teachers here so much that he gets upset when I drop him off at a different centre 2 days per week. He enjoys the roof top playground and does not need to go to a playground on the way home unlike days when he has been at the other centre.

Absolutely love this place. My little one started his first day care with them. His english was bad bad cause we just moved to Australia and our lovely Shauna took care of him and make him fill comfortable in the environment. After two month he was happy to go there and didn't want to leave place, found friends and completely settled in the day care. I was so calm cause I known that my son is in good place. Everyday I received in the app what they were doing during the day with images and story so I felt connected and had something to discuss in the evening time. He ate there everything he didn't at home so can say that the food was really good even if I haven't tried it. Want to say Thank you to the Nakita who organised his enrolment as fast as I needed (I called on Friday evening and we started orientation on Tuesday). Thank you Shauna for sitting with Liosha on you knees whole settlement period and for the love you share with them, for all activities they had in the centre. We finished with day care in the middle of dec and my son keep asking about Shauna so that means something to me. Love you guys. Big hugs from us and wish you all the best!Anna

Since the start of a new management team about a year ago, the centre considerably improved and continuously developing. I was initially reluctant to choose the centre on a tall building as I thought it wouldn't have an outdoor area. I was wrong, It has the best rooftop on St Kilda Road, and potentially in the CBD. More importantly, most of the educators I have met are really friendly and patient with the kids (and their parents). The educators and the management are highly responsive your needs and are flexible. Highly recommend it!

After what we thought was going to be big changes with the new management it has been such a great transition.They have been so helpful and accommodating and I can already see how happy everyone is which is so important for my daughter. There has been few changes such as new resources and a bit more organisation with queries and events.

My 3 year old girl loves here, he brings her craft everyday home with pride and keeps on talking to me about it. The staff are so creative, they plan and organise the activities well, and during activities they teach children about the material, the history, etc.
