Guardian Childcare & Education Torquay

Guardian Childcare & Education Torquay NQS Rated Exceeding by ACECQA

Our centre has been recognised as ‘Exceeding’ the National Quality Standard. This is the highest rating you can receive from a regulatory authority assessment and we are proud to deliver an exceptional service to the children and families who attend our centre.

Guardian Childcare & Education Torquay (formerly Kids Club) is beautifully located by the beach, embracing the local community’s coastal surroundings via an amazing beach kinder program. Since the program launched in 2016, children in the Centre have the opportunity to explore the community and ignite their curiosity for nature and the environment. Guardian Torquay also runs a more formal Kindergarten Program, led by university qualified Teachers who will help prepare your child for the transition to primary school.

In addition to taking advantage of its stunning location, Guardian Torquay boasts a range of exciting, resource-rich environments in the Centre itself. This includes a recently renovated outdoor space, herb and vegetable gardens, a pirate ship, cubby house, water pump, riverbed and a range of age-specific workshops and studios.

Our on-site cook, who has been with the Centre for almost a decade, prepares nutritionally balanced meals and snacks using seasonal ingredients every day. The children and educators often head out into the Centre’s garden to gather ingredients to add to the daily meals, and to collect eggs from the resident chicken.

“I love watching children’s development, and think it’s really special that we get to be a part of that. At the Centre, we keep portfolios for all of the children, and it’s always lovely being able to reflect and see how much they’ve learnt throughout the year. At the end of the day, forming bonds and connections with the family is the most rewarding to me.”
