Guardian Childcare & Education St Kilda South

Welcome to Guardian Childcare & Education St Kilda South, an expansive, light-filled Melbourne day care centre. Our childhood education programs are focused on play-based learning, where our spacious day care and child care centre provides a nurturing and stimulating environment for children aged six weeks to six years of age, supporting them to discover the world in a safe and secure way.

Our St Kilda South day care and child care centre is conveniently situated for families living in surrounding suburbs such as Middle Park, Albert Park, Elwood and Balaclava. Just six kilometres from Melbourne city centre, it is also well-located for families commuting to the city.

Our exciting, resource-rich environments include:

  • Passionate Educators who focus on relationships with children and families
  • Beautifully designed learning spaces to inspire curiosity, fun, and a sense of belonging
  • Engaging outdoor environment including a two-hundred-year-old Moreton Bay Fig tree, a wrap-around playground, water play area and natural play structures to spark learning and exploration

Our St Kilda South early learning centre has a dedicated on-site cook who prepares nutritious meals daily. Educators host hands-on cooking classes for the children to expand their knowledge and taste buds!

Supported through a passionate and dedicated team of University-qualified Teachers and Educators, our child care and day care centre in St Kilda South is an inclusive learning environment for children where a personalised approach to learning opportunities ensures children are supported to be bold, creative, and curious in their learning journey.

Children attending our St Kilda South child care centre will also have the chance to see the same familiar faces as they move on up from our nursery room, into our Kindergarten program, designed specifically to help prepare your child transition from early learning to Primary school.

As part of our unique Visible Learning Program, families will also have the chance to gain an understanding of their child’s learning. Easily accessible for families, our Learning Exchange Display provides the opportunity for our Teachers and Educators to share with you any updates on their progress every day. You will also have the chance to share with us your own personal goals and visions for us to implement, having direct input in your child’s educational journey!

Families will also be given access to our family communication app Storypark, where we will share with you any significant updates in your child’s day, as well as any other important updates that happen in the centre – ensuring that you’re always connected, even when you’re not here.

If you’re looking to begin the adventure and are wanting to explore, book a tour and meet our team at Guardian Childcare & Education St Kilda South today!
