Guardian Early Learning Bruce
Every day is an opportunity for discovery and growth at Guardian Early Learning Centre Bruce. With a range of exciting, resource-rich environments including a family library, a sustainability garden, yoga classes, and natural play structures, children are encouraged to explore and learn.
The light-filled centre also has a mud pit, a cubby house, a woodwork station, two chickens, an orchard, vegetable gardens, fruit trees, Indigenous totem poles, a beautiful outdoor mural, and an open-plan atelier.
Children 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, Cafe Momo, the Canberra Raiders training field and Maribyrnong Primary School, whom we have a great relationship with.
We are proud to have a culturally diverse team and celebrate a variety of cultures and holidays. Our community-minded team also organise regular visits from Duncan Smith, from the Wiradjuri Echoes, who does monthly Indigenous learning with the children.
Our on-site cook prepares five nutritionally balanced meals using seasonal ingredients every day. The children and Educators often collect herbs and vegetables from the gardens to add to the daily meals and use in cooking classes.
Begin the adventure at Guardian today by booking a tour to explore the centre, chat with our team of Educators and learn more about our high-quality curriculum.Read More
Take a Look Around
Rhythm of The Day
With endless possibilities, there’s never a dull moment at Guardian and no two days are the same. Here’s what a day at Guardian might look like. Please note, this will vary depending on centre opening hours.
Handover time with children, families and our friendly Educators. There's a chance for conversation to share what's important for the day/what's happened the night before at home.
Breakfast time where families are welcome to stay and enjoy breakfast with the children.
As children are arriving and families are coming and going, there's an opportunity for play as well as family grouping, open-plan play and multi-age grouping.
As the children come together, planned experiences begin. This is where the Guardian programs and practices come to life. Examples of learning include numeracy, literacy, language, critical thinking, problem solving, leadership, social skills, technology, science, creative arts, curiosity and more.
There's an opportunity for children to come together and enjoy morning tea.
Following morning tea, the planned experiences continue. This includes both indoor and outdoor programs.
There's an opportunity for children to come together for lunch. With an open-door policy, families are able to join the centre for meals and excursion if they wish.
For children who want to, or need to, there's an opportunity to sleep, rest or relax. For children who don't need to rest, there are planned experiences, which are more likely to be outdoors.
Children come together for afternoon tea in small groups or with siblings (they can also rest and play together, too). This time also presents an opportunity to reflect on the day.
End of the day
As families arrive to pick up children, there's an opportunity to speak to Educators and share information about the day.
End of the day
Some centres offer early tea or light snack at the end of the day, which they can grab as they leave the centre. We’re mindful of how routines vary at home, so if throughout the day, we notice children look tired, food will be provided.
Open 7:30am to 6:00pm

What Our Families Say
“It’s not easy to leave your child in the care of someone else, however, from day one I can comfortably say that your staff have always provided the best care for both my children. I always see all the great things they do with the children but most importantly they are always there to comfort the children and take such great care of them.”
– Ivana Dusenjko, Mickleham Road, Vic
"The transition into childcare was made easy by the supportive and compassionate staff. Daily communication (both email and verbal) kept me up to date with my daughter's progress socially, emotionally and intellectually. The 'child centred' approach is amazing; for my child to make connections to her own world and experiences. She loves going.”
– Sarah Collingwood, Jacaranda – Sunnybank, Qld
"“The team are passionate about being early childhood Educators. The environment is filled with many indoor and outdoor activities allowing a child-led development by following their natural interests (inspired by Reggio Emilia). A philosophy we follow in our home. My four-year-old daughter’s language and social skills have improved greatly.””
– Angela K, Lane Cove, NSW
