Guardian Early Learning – Charlotte Street

Every day is an opportunity for discovery and growth at Guardian Early Learning Centre – Charlotte Street. With a range of exciting, resource-rich environments including a spacious rooftop playground, city views, a vegetable garden, and natural play structures, children are encouraged to explore and learn.

The light-filled centre offers a community feel in a corporate environment, with a soothing open-plan atelier where our exciting multi-age programs come to life.

We are proud to have a culturally diverse team and celebrate a variety of cultures and holidays. We also organise a range of events and fundraisers throughout the year.

Children get out and about on regular city walks, so we have a great connection with the surrounding community. Popular destinations include the Botanical Gardens, Queen Street Mall, St Stephen’s Cathedral playground, and local shops.

Our on-site chef, Christine, prepares five nutritionally balanced meals using seasonal ingredients every day. The open kitchen allows Christine to chat to the children throughout the day, and host regular “Cooking with Christine” classes for the children. Parents are welcome to join us for a buffet breakfast each morning from 7:30am.

To further explore food at the centre, our Educators host cooking classes for the children to get involved in to enhance their understanding of good nutrition.

Learn More About Our Centre

Charlotte Street has a unique indoor environment that stimulates, learning, imagination and adventure with a wide range of experiences to choose from. The children especially love playing with blocks, lights and sand, and using their imaginations to create daily adventures with these materials. We also hold regular city and garden excursions which gives children the opportunity to get children out and explore the local community.

Our outdoor environment is literally a breath of fresh air and comes complete with interactive gardens and city views – a popular feature for both families and children. This space encourages exploration, creativity and development through play children are able to see the clouds and hear the sounds of the community.

We offer a Curriculum broader than just literacy and numeracy, including language, art, music, social skills, sport, sustainability and much more. With a strong focus on family involvement, engagement and communication, Guardian Early Learning Centre – Charlotte Street also offers a solid team of experienced educators who are passionate about their roles, and this is reflected in the genuine interest they take in each and every child and family.
