Guardian Childcare & Education Bruce

Guardian Childcare & Education Bruce is one of six Guardian Childcare Centres in the ACT, boasting a range of exciting, resource-rich environments including a family library, a sustainability garden and natural play structures where children are encouraged to explore and learn.

The light-filled centre also has a mud pit, a cubby house, a woodwork station, vegetable gardens, Indigenous totem poles, a beautiful outdoor mural, and an open-plan atelier.

Our team of professionally-certified early childhood education specialists deliver an advanced play-based and nature-inspired curriculum, as well as a leading Preschool Program to help prepare your child for the exciting transition to school.

Children at Guardian Bruce also get out and about on excursions, so we have a great connection with the surrounding community. We visit locations such as our local ponds, shopping centres, Café Momo, the Canberra Raiders training field and Maribyrnong Primary School, whom we have a great relationship with and who play a big role in our transition to school programs.

We are proud to have a culturally diverse team and celebrate a variety of cultures and holidays. Our community-minded team organise regular visits from Duncan Smith, from the Wiradjuri Echoes, who does monthly Indigenous learning with the children.

Our on-site cooks prepare five nutritionally balanced meals using seasonal ingredients every day, often collected by the children from our on-site vegetable gardens. To further explore food at the Centre, Educators host regular hands-on cooking experiences for the children to extend on their knowledge of nutrition and to encourage them to try new foods.

At Guardian Bruce, we’re confident our unique approach to combining education, play and care will be the difference you’re looking for. Book a tour or contact our team today.
