Guardian Early Learning Centre – St Kilda Road

Every day is an opportunity for discovery and growth at Guardian Early Learning Centre – St Kilda Road. With a range of exciting, resource-rich environments – a rooftop playground with incredible scenic views – children are encouraged to explore and learn.

The light-filled and homely centre also has multi-age play spaces, a wooden tram car, herb and vegetable gardens, a water pump, a bike path, and natural climbing structures.

We are proud to have a culturally diverse team and celebrate a variety of cultures and holidays throughout the year. The community-minded team also organise a range of family events throughout the year, including our annual Gran Prix party in the rooftop garden.

Our on-site chef, Lydia, prepares five nutritionally balanced meals using seasonal ingredients every day. 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

Guardian Early Learning Centre – St Kilda Road is a beautiful day care centre located in the leafy green area of Melbourne on St Kilda Road near Albert Park Lake and Fawkner Park. Our kindergarten is dedicated to offering fun, developmentally appropriate classes where each child can learn through play and exploration.

The learning spaces within the centre foster creativity, excitement and wonder as the children explore and discover. The art studio features a curved window overlooking the park to inspire creativity and imagination.

The recently renovated rooftop garden boasts water play area, sand and gravel pits, and even a tram cubby house perfect for creative and sensory play. Children love tending to the vegetable garden which grows the likes of eggplants, lettuce and cauliflower, much of which are used in the centre’s meals or shared with families. With wooden frames for climbing and expansive views over the bay and city, this outdoor environment is a wonderful place to explore and learn.

Our babies room features an indoor sandpit where inquisitive minds can touch and play – perfect for sensory exploration. The rooftop features a large open air outdoor play space where that promotes learning, curiosity and adventure – there you can find our unique cubby house inspired by the trams around St  Kilda Road.

Our spacious centre is equipped with the finest Reggio Emilia-inspired learning materials for every level of early childhood development. We have a team of passionate and committed educators who are dedicated to making every child and family member feel loved and supported in our home away from home environment.
