  • Parents Only

Located in South Melbourne, Guardian Early Learning – South Melbourne offers newly renovated indoor and outdoor environments for children to explore, learn and grow. The large outdoor play spaces at Guardian South Melbourne feature natural play structures, sand pits and water play.

Guardian South Melbourne is conveniently located only 10 minutes drive from Melbourne CBD. The centre is also within 300m walking distance of both Park Street and Sturt Street light rail stations and provides pram parking on-site to ease the commute.

This centre encourages practices and programs to help prepare your child for formal schooling and beyond. We’ve taken a look at what makes Guardian South Melbourne so special.

Supportive environments to learn and explore

Guardian South Melbourne will offer stimulating learning environments for children to explore and discover with open ended materials and resources.

To compliment your child’s lifelong learning journey, educators at the centre will be committed and passionate about ensuring each child feels safe, nurtured and cared for every day. At Guardian, each child is encouraged to engage in interest-led play that creates an engaging learning experience.

Educators at the centre seek to optimise diverse learning opportunities and implement the Curriculum as framed by the Early Years Learning Framework.



Good nutrition is important for growing bodies

Good nutrition is an essential part to every child’s development. At Guardian South Melbourne, the centre will provide children with meals and snacks using fresh ingredients and seasonal produce prepared by our on-site cook.

Children at the centre enjoy five nutritionally balanced meals each day, prepared by the on-site cook using fresh and seasonal ingredients. We cater to all dietary and cultural requirements.

Children at Guardian South Melbourne will be involved in the growth and harvesting of fruit, vegetables and herbs in the centre’s gardens which allows them to play an active role in the meal times at the centre.

Meal times are not just about eating. They provide a fantastic opportunity for children to experience new tastes and textures, and to gather together socially. When children, educators and families come together to eat and drink, an opportunity for social and language development exists along with self-help and hygiene skills.

Is your child ready for school?

At Guardian South Melbourne, our practices and programs help prepare your child for formal schooling and beyond.

Guardian work to develop skills that will help children to thrive in the 21st Century. These are called 21st Century skills and encompass the following areas:

  • Creativity and innovation
  • Collaboration and teamwork
  • Critical thinking and problem solving
  • Communication

Learning is a journey that never ends.

We believe setting the foundations for future success starts with a child who is confident and aware of our everchanging and globally connected world.
