Guardian Childcare & Education St Kilda North

Every day is an opportunity for discovery and growth at Guardian Childcare & Education St Kilda North. With a range of exciting, resource-rich environments – a rooftop playground with incredible scenic views – children are encouraged to explore and learn.

The light-filled and homely centre also has multi-age play spaces, a wooden tram car, herb and vegetable gardens, a water pump, a bike path, and natural climbing structures.

We are proud to have a culturally diverse team and celebrate a variety of cultures and holidays throughout the year. The community-minded team also organise a range of family events throughout the year, including our annual Gran Prix party in the rooftop garden.

Our on-site chef, Lydia, 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.

There is so much to see, touch, learn and explore at Guardian Childcare & Education St Kilda North!

Our high-quality early childhood centre is conveniently located in the lovely area of Melbourne on St Kilda Road near Albert Park Lake and Fawkner Park.

The centre boasts of remarkable views, overlooking Port Phillip Bay, Albert Park and wonderful views of the city which spark the most incredible conversations with children about our world!

Our modern and light filled centre is equipped with Reggio-Emilia inspired learning materials across seven classrooms, shared active spaces, a shared dining hall, and an open aired rooftop garden. The recently renovated rooftop includes veggie gardens, a water play area, sand and gravel pits and expansive views over the bay and city.

Our babies room features an indoor sandpit along with a variety of open-ended experiences where inquisitive minds can touch, play and learn.

Natural resources, loose parts and recycled materials are used throughout the learning environments to foster creativity, excitement and wonder as the children explore and discover.

Our team of passionate Educators and leaders are committed to creating a welcoming and inclusive environment for all children and families. The educational experiences offered within the rooms reflect the needs, developmental levels and interests of each child and is created in accordance with the Early Years Learning Framework and our own Guardian Curriculum.

Our integrated kindergarten program, run by a Bachelor Qualified Early Childhood Teacher, is dedicated to offering educational, fun and developmentally appropriate classes where each child can learn through play and exploration. The program incorporates incursions, group focused projects and other kinder specific experiences focused on educating children to prepare for their transition to school and life outside of an early childhood environment.
