   28 ratings more

Every day is an opportunity for discovery and growth at Guardian Childcare & Education Underwood. With a range of exciting, resource-rich environments – including a spacious outdoor area – children are encouraged to explore and learn. The light-filled and open-plan centre also has herb and vegetable gardens, an art atelier, a water pump, a creek bed, a worm farm, and natural play structures. At Guardian Preston, we are focused on teaching children how to learn to set them up for a lifetime of curiosity and education. Our Centre delivers a leading Kinder program that helps children make the exciting transition to primary school.

Children get out and about on excursions, so we have a great connection with the surrounding community. We visit a variety of locations, including local parks, Bunnings, Big W and our local cafe for babyccinos.

We are proud to have a culturally diverse team and celebrate a variety of cultures and holidays throughout the year.

Our on-site cook prepares four nutritionally balanced meals using seasonal ingredients every day. To further explore food at the centre, our Educators host weekly cooking classes for the children to get involved in to enhance their understanding of good nutrition. Children can also enjoy their meals in the dedicated piazza while socialising.

Begin the adventure at Guardian today by booking a tour to explore the centre, chat with our team of Educators and learn more about our high-quality curriculum.

This is a beautiful centre where kids are no. 1. My LO started in the Toddler room and has moved into Junior Kindy and I think testament to the centres caring philosophies is that 1. the staff are the same and 2. the kids are the same 3. us parents all rave about how we love the centre so much and how happy our LO's are there. My LO loves loves loves kindy, loves her teachers Miss Jenny and Miss Tegan and we couldn't be more blessed knowing how happy, safe and content she is when she's at kindy. Her educational outcomes are wonderful as well and the kids do a variety of fun things every day. Cant recommend Jacaranda highly enough.
Jacaranda daycare is by far the best child care around, my daughter has been attending since she was 12 months old, she has been to a couple of different child cares and jacaranda makes me feel so welcome and at ease leaving my precious baby there, I haven't felt comfortable leaving her anywhere else! The ladies are all wonderful and there's very little staff changes which I love. The staff is the most important thing and Bianca has chosen the best educators around!
