About

Every day is an opportunity for discovery and growth at Guardian Childcare & Education Queen Street, which is rated exceeding in the National Quality Standard. With a range of exciting, resource-rich environments – including modern indoor/outdoor spaces complete with a project atelier, natural play structures and indoor gardens – children are encouraged to explore and learn.

The light-filled and open-plan centre also has city views, water play, a worm farm, and sandstone play areas, where our programs come to life.

Children get out and about on excursions, so we have a great connection with the surrounding community. We visit locations such Brisbane River to watch the City Cats, Queen Street Mall, the Botanical Gardens and our local library.

We are proud to have a culturally diverse team and celebrate a variety of cultures and holidays throughout the year. The community-minded team also organise a range of fundraising events for the children to be involved in.

Our on-site cook, Renata, prepares five nutritionally balanced meals using seasonal ingredients every day. To further explore food at the centre, Renata host cooking classes for the children to get involved in to enhance their understanding of good nutrition.

A very bad experience. Changed from previous daycare due to work location. Never had any issues in previous, and zero issues in current daycare - my little boy has always been very happy and relaxed with anyone - except at Guardian Queen Street. Not warm or caring. Food was terrible; my little boy lost weight in the 3 weeks he was there (for the first time in his life). My son developed a bad rash around his mouth because dummy was put in nonstop all day (usually only sleeps with it), dummy often not cleaned, covered in jam/margarine. Educators would not listen to me at all that my son needs 2 naps (completely average for his age), his sleep became completely erratic while there, despite never having issues before. As the weeks went on, my son would become extremely upset at drop off and when I would arrive to collect him, he would already be crying and looked as if he had been for a long time. No/sparse information on Storypark app - no info on food/sleep and “daily”photos uploaded often weeks/months later. Staff turnover seems high. We took our son out urgently on a Friday and started a new daycare on the Monday, hence not getting a chance to do “stay and play” in his new daycare - he is SO happy in the new daycare. By the second day, zero tears at drop off, happy and smiling, eating and sleeping well, with warm, caring people who update us every day. I never usually write reviews but if I had seen a recent review of the baby room in Guardian, I could have saved myself and my son a lot of stress and upset.

From the very beginning, the educators have been like a second family to Sophie - she still loves to go and play with her educators from Ruby (from her baby months) including Margie, Eileen, and Joan, because of the strong bonds formed then. In Opal green, she just loves her new educators Lauren, Ivy and Trojan. There are many others who greet her each day. Sophie enjoys going to Guardian each day and we are thrilled with her development while being at Guardian.

Guardian at Queen Street is a brilliant centre. There is always a friendly welcome on arrival and such a caring vibe. Our daughter loved it from her first day and has continued to learn and grow. She is stimulated and extended and her learning has gone from strength the strength. There is also a great debrief at the end of the day outlining any issues and explaining how different things are progressing. We couldn’t be happier with the centre and have loved entrusting them with the care of our child.

Queen street has been a loving and friendly home for my daughter and I will be forever grateful for the care and love taken in taking care of her. I had complete peace of mind every time I dropped her off. She talked about her teachers so lovingly and had such fun learning along the way. The center is very organised, friendly and always willing to help where they can. Thank you Guardian Queen Street for being amazing!

Incredible team that goes above and beyond providing support, guidance and care to all family members, from mum and dad to bub. We have watched our child emotionally, socially and independently develop exponentially under their loving care. Nothing is ever to much trouble and all team members feel like an extension of their family. We will be so sad to leave them when the time comes.

Michelle, Emma and their team are absolutely amazing. They are always accommodating and put the children and families first. Our little one really came out of her shell by being here and we are so grateful! The centre itself is fantastic and the activities the children do from day 1 make such a difference to their development. Can’t sing their praises enough!

We have been attending the centre for just over 2 years now. The educators and centre manager could not be more nurturing and caring towards my daughter and our family. I could not be happier, could not recommend guardian queen street enough!
