Guardian Early Learning – Newstead is a bright and friendly childcare centre in sunny Brisbane.

With music time, dress up area, recycling centre and regular incursions, there’s never a dull moment here at Newstead!

Having opened last year on June 6th, Newstead recently celebrated their first birthday, which was an exciting time for the families and educators. Most of the team have been at the centre since the doors opened and have added new educators to the team as the service has filled with more and more children. Centre Manager, Melissa Hunt says, “We have a strong group of experienced educators with a great passion for Early Childhood. We pride ourselves on teamwork and our relationships with our families.”

Books, books, books!

The dedicated educators support children in their explorations, research and meaningful play. “We are currently working closely with the local library and have had them visit us to read with us,” says Melissa. “Early Literacy is an important part of early learning and we pride ourselves on being able to give the children access to a range of early literacy.”

This literacy partnership came about because the children at Guardian Early Learning – Newstead love their books and can often be found in a corner or with friends and educators reading. The children have even created their own library in the centre where they made their own library cards and can also borrow books.

What makes Guardian Early Learning – Newstead different

Guardian Early Learning – Newstead is a unique open plan centre with indoor and outdoor play offered at all times of the day no matter the weather. These spaces allow children to choose various experiences throughout the day depending on their own unique interests – whether that’s through quiet time on their own or collaboration with their peers. The educators take time to set up the environments to support and challenge children in their learning and these set ups will change frequently to keep children engaged and curious.

“I just wanted to take the time to say thank you for all you and your staff have done during Lucas’ time there, particularly, yourself, Andrea, Bhavisia and Karlie. You always go above and beyond the call of duty and Lucas was lucky to have the opportunity to attend the centre. You have surrounded yourself with a wonderful group of educators and that is why your centre is as successful as it is…. well done!”  – Caryn Wyatt

We know that mornings are often a busy time so we provide breakfast for our families allowing them to eat a nutritious breakfast while spending quality time with their child and talking with the educators. Excursions are next on the centre’s agenda and they are currently in the process of organising their first excursion for their 3-5 year olds and are very excited about this, so watch this space!
