  Welcome to Guardian Childcare & Education Watsonia, formerly Watsonia Early Learning Centre, a modern, purpose-built childcare and day care centre for children aged six weeks to six years of age. Our child care centre is perfectly situated for families living in surrounding suburbs such as Macleod, Watsonia, Watsonia North, Bundoora and Greensborough.

  Focused on giving your child the best possible start to life, diverse team of Teachers and Educators take on a personalised approach to learning – ensuring that each child receives the best possible care tailored to their own needs.
  With four different rooms, from Nursery, Toddler, Pre Kinder and Kindergarten, each child is enabled to learn and discover the world in a modern, safe and secure environment.

  The Victorian Government offers funding to provide families up to 15 hours of Free Kindergarten a week, in addition to the Childcare Subsidy.
