Welcome to Guardian Childcare & Education Mentone East

Welcoming children aged 6 weeks to 6 years, Guardian Childcare & Education Mentone East focuses on learning through play. Passionate degree-qualified teachers and educators help the children develop essential social, cognitive and emotional skills in a safe, supportive and nurturing environment. The community-minded team values the individuality of every child and tailors a program to suit their unique needs and interests.

The inviting centre boasts comfortable and cosy interiors and an exciting outdoor space. There are native trees, creek beds, water play areas and herb and vegetable gardens where the children and educators gather ingredients for chef-prepared meals. 

The team has built a wonderful connection with Mentone Park Primary, which children visit as part of the Kindergarten transition program. This helps ensure school feels safer and more familiar when they do start primary school. Other activities include visits to local community spots including Mentone Reserve, affectionately known as ‘Duck Park’.

Situated southeast of Melbourne, the centre is close to public transport with ample parking on site. Convenient and easy to access, why not book a tour of this warm and nurturing 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.
