Guardian Childcare & Education St Kilda North

Guardian Childcare & Education St Kilda North is located just 6km south-east of the Melbourne CBD. Close to the suburbs of Prahran, Middle Park, Windsor, Balaclava and Elwood, Guardian St Kilda North is a convenient choice for families who work in the city and want high-quality early education and care.

The light-filled, modern yet homely Centre boasts a rooftop playground with incredible scenic views. It also has multi-age play spaces, a wooden tram car (in true Melbourne style), herb and vegetable gardens, a water pump, a bike path, and natural climbing structures for children to explore.

The Teachers and Educators at Guardian St Kilda North provide wonderful learning programs for the children, including a leading Kindergarten Program for those preparing for the transition to primary school.

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

The Guardian St Kilda North community spirit was alive and on show recently when the children decided to create a beautiful rainbow banner to display in their window for the locals to enjoy. They then donated this to the local police station to “share the love”.

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 hands-on cooking classes for the children to enhance their understanding of good nutrition and to encourage their curiosity about new foods.
