At Guardian Childcare and Education St Ives, children aged 6 weeks to 6 years are cared for in a nurturing, play-based environment by dedicated and experienced educators. Using a personalised approach, the educators ensure that every child can thrive in all areas of their development.

The learning spaces at the centre are bright and filled with light, purposefully designed to inspire the children in their daily learning activities. Each of the six indoor learning spaces and the three outdoor play spaces were designed to spark the children’s curiosity and imagination, setting the scene for learning and play.

The outdoor play areas include a large sandpit, cubby house, teepee, mud kitchen and more to ensure that the children can explore the outdoors alongside their peers. In addition to the environments at the centre, the children also participate in regular excursions to connect with the local community and landmarks.

For families, the centre provides full transparency including real time updates and communication through the Storypark App. This ongoing partnership promotes continuity of learning and is important to help children make a smooth transition to Primary School.

Located a short walk from multiple bus stops, the centre is also easily accessible by car with undercover parking available onsite. The convenient location is also close to St Ives Primary School and Gordon East Primary School. Why not book a tour of this inclusive and supportive centre today?

Programs Meet the team Parent communication and involvement


The centre programs revolve around the interests and skills of the children. The educators take a personalised approach to get to know each child, their needs and what interests them most. They then tailor the program to match.

With a mix of structured and unstructured play, the educators embed important foundational learning and skills throughout the day. What may seem like fun and play to the children or even to an outside observer, the educators carefully plan activities with real learning benefits. Whether it’s counting the chairs to put out at lunch or practising social skills through dress up play, the children are always growing, learning and developing.

Community is also a strong focus in the program. The educators make the most of their community connections to plan engaging incursions and excursions for the children to enjoy. This enhances their sense of belonging as they develop an understanding of the world around them.
