About Guardian Childcare & Education Lemon Tree

   17 ratings more

Guardian Childcare & Education Lemon Tree is bursting with resource-rich environments for early learning. Following a recent Centre-wide renovation, this modern Centre is an oasis of learning for children aged from six weeks to six years. The children are able to explore and learn through modern resources, natural play structures and a range of age-specific play areas.

The first five years of your child’s life are incredibly important when it comes to social and emotional development, and setting them up with a love of learning that lasts a lifetime. That’s why, at Guardian Lemon Tree, we’re focused on teaching children how to learn versus just ticking a box. This approach to education comes to life in our Kindergarten Program, which is led by qualified teachers who are there to help prepare your child for the exciting transition to school.

As part of our strong community focus, all age groups participate in regular excursions out into our local community, connecting with local businesses and residents alike.

Our on-site chef Ishi is the heart of our Centre, preparing four nutritionally balanced meals using seasonal ingredients every day. Ishi also hosts regular cooking experiences for the children to help extend on their knowledge of good nutrition and encourage them to try new foods and flavours. Some of Ishi’s favourite recipes are even available for your to try at home, including the ever-popular Scrumptious Sausage Rolls.

My daughter attended pre-school there. She had an amazingly welcoming and stimulating experience. She adjusted very quickly as each child is welcome when arriving to the room. It was great to see that for such young age, Sarah and Chetna developed a program where the pre-schooler learnt about materials. My daughter learnt about the water cycle through art and experiment projects. The second year she learnt about Volcanos and the earth. She was happy and looking forward each day to go to the kinder. She got happily attached to her friends. Kids were taught to love each other and take care of each other as well as the environment. The frequent visits to the park were an extension of their material experimentation. The second year the pre-school program involved the community including parents creating workshops if they want. The diversity of the staff's background made the environment inclusive. My daughter got attached and still loves visiting Sarah, Chetna, Megan and Imalka.
My son August has been attending Lemon Tree since he was as 10 months old. We have been so thrilled with the centre. All the educators are professional loving careers of August and all the children in their care. Sarah the manager sends out clear communication and is very easy to get a hold of whenever you need to speak to her. We love the story park online service where the room educators update parents throughout the day of what their little ones have been up to. You get to see pictures and hear stories which while your at work makes your day go by that little bit quicker. I would highly recommend this centre to any parent looking for a professional, warm, caring, fabulous environment for your child.
