Welcome to Guardian Watsonia Childcare and Education

Welcome to Guardian Watsonia Childcare and Education!

Aspire to be … bold, curious, creative

Guardian is much more than a place of childcare and learning. It is a place where children feel safe and secure to be themselves. A place where children can be curious, imaginative and brave in their learning We create an environment that supports children with the best possible start to life.

We believe that if we focus our enormous passion on the care and education of young children, then these children will leave us with the capacity for a lifelong interest in learning, enhancing their personal development and the contribution they make to the world of tomorrow.

  • 100% of profits are re-invested back into our Centres and Teams to deliver the best early childhood education experience in Australia.
  • We’re proud to say that 94% of our Centres meet or exceed the National Quality Standard.
  • We have modern Centres in key locations across metro NSW, VIC, ACT, QLD and SA that provide care and education to more than 10,000 children each day.

Programs Meet the team Parent communication and involvement Programs


The first five years in a child’s life are critical. During these years they shape so much of the person they will become. The program recognises this and tailors an individual approach for each and every child. The personalised nature of the program means that the children’s needs are met and their interests are fostered while they learn alongside their peers.

The educators use both structured and unstructured play in the indoor and outdoor learning environments to deliver the program. They are highly skilled at spotting learning opportunities in everyday moments, guiding children towards lessons and skills they will carry with them for life. 

The program is always relevant for the age and stage of the children. The babies and toddlers have ample opportunities to explore the world around them, making new discoveries around every corner. As the children grow and look towards their big step to big school, the program shifts gears to help prepare them for this transition. 

As global community citizens, the program helps the children to prepare for this role with regular community incursions and excursions. The children learn about who they are and their place in the community as they develop a strong sense of belonging.
