Guardian Childcare & Education Torquay

(Formerly Kids Club)

Every day is an opportunity for discovery and growth at Guardian Childcare & Education Torquay (formerly Kids Club), which is rated exceeding in the National Quality Standard. With a range of exciting, resource-rich environments – including a recently renovated outdoor space – children are encouraged to explore and learn. The light-filled and spacious centre also has chickens, herb and vegetable gardens, a pirate ship, cubby house, water pump, riverbed and a range of age-specific ateliers.

Embracing the local community’s coastal surroundings, Guardian Childcare & Education Torquay has an amazing beach kinder program, where the children have the opportunity to explore the community and ignite their curiosity for nature.

Our on-site cook, who has been with the centre for over seven years, prepares five nutritionally balanced meals using seasonal ingredients every day. The children and long-standing staff of Guardian Childcare & Education Torquay head out into the centre’s garden to gather food to add to the daily meals and collect eggs from the chicken to gift to parents.

Begin the adventure at Guardian today by booking a tour to explore the centre, chat with our team of Educators and learn more about our high-quality curriculum.
