Every day is an opportunity for discovery and growth at Guardian Childcare & Education Walker Street, which is rated exceeding in the National Quality Standard. With a range of exciting, resource-rich environments including herb and vegetable gardens, a worm farm, and natural play structures, children are encouraged to explore and learn.

The light-filled centre is also home a spacious outdoor area – including an alfresco dining space, stage, an obstacle course, and troughs for water play – and a range of age-specific ateliers where our programs come to life.

Children get out and about on regular excursions, so we have a great connection with the surrounding community. We visit locations such as our local library, post office and grocery store.

We are proud to have a culturally diverse team and celebrate a variety of cultures and holidays. Our community-minded Educators also organise family dinners on a Friday evening, as well as various events and fundraisers throughout the year.

Our on-site cooks prepare 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.

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.

We've been so pleased with the care our 2 kids receive at Guardian Walker St. Michelle and the educators put a lot of effort into the program, caring for each child as a unique individual and creatively nurturing their interests in a huge variety of play-based opportunities. We love getting the photos and detailed stories every day on StoryPark, it helps us feel included in their day!
My 2 years old daughter started childcare at Walker Street ELC when she was 10 months old. She loves being there and has gained a lot of skills and good habits since she's been going there. The carers are amazing, the food is prepared fresh daily. We love the daily activities they do, they're creative and stimulating. My daughter always comes home so happy. Highly recommended!
