Very satisfied with Gardian Childcare& Education. The staff are very eager every morning to greet my child. I have had both my children coming to this organisation and each time very happy with the level of care they have and are providing to my family. Front office team are great if I have a question. The level of hygiene standards and protocols are high. Thank you Guardian Team at Bruce.

The staff are beautiful, caring and thoughtful who make my children feel safe and included. You can tell the kids are genuinely happy to be at school with the educators and their friends. They get exposure to so many different activities and get to do a huge variety of educational activities. They are fed extremely well and I genuinely couldn't be happier with the centre.

We are very happy with Guardian Bruce for Amelia. All of the early learning teachers and admin staff have been so approachable, welcoming and supportive. Storypark is also really great to hear what activities they are doing and the intended learning outcomes. I love reading what Amelia has been up to and seeing the photos. We can see that in the few weeks of starting childcare she has become more confident and is learning really useful skills. My mouth waters each time I read the daily menu. It is great to hear about the various healthy food they get to eat. It is also really sweet that birthday’s are celebrated with a cake. Each time I pick up Amelia I love to peek through the window to see what Amelia is up to and it makes me feel so happy to see her talking or playing with other children and playing with a puzzle, toys or reading. I will definitely recommend Guardian Bruce to friends with children in early development years because it has been really good for Amelia and our family so far.

Love having our kids at Guardian Bruce. We were worried it would be an impersonal experience given that it is a chain, but boy were we wrong. Siobhan and her team have made us feel welcomed, supported, and like family since day dot. I have no stress when my boys are there - which is a gift in itself. Highly recommend these guys!

Piece of mind is all a parent can ask for when they send their child to childcare and Guardian Bruce brings that in spades! As a early years teacher myself, I know what best practice looks and feels like and the quality of the care at Guardian is second to none. They staff are incredibly warm and responsive and my son runs into the centre each day excited for the day a head. That is all I need to see to know that he is looked after, loved and engaged. We could not ask for better! Thank you to all the staff and leadership at Guardian!

Whether you live in or outside Belconnen, 'Guardian Childcare & Education' in Bruce is the best daycare centre for your children. There are many reasons why 'Gaurdian' is head and shoulders above the rest, however the most important reason, is the staff. The staff are so exceptional that when the majority moved from a Gungahlin centre to the Bruce 'Gaurdian' child care centre, we moved suburbs in child care services to ensure our little one would continue to have the exceptional education & heartfelt care that we had come to expect & respect. What we didn't know about our move was that we would get that and so much more.Gaurdian focus on doing the things that matter most to parents really well. The food is fresh and caters to different & fussy paletes. They are meticulous with regard to allergies and dietary requirements.The centre is flexible with hours & casual days which is important when things inevitably change at the last minute.They manage illness very well & in a time where COVID has affected so much of our lives, Gaurdian have managed this crises with professionalism & excellent administration. The communication lines have been clear & consistent which meant understanding the quagmire of free child care was very easy for our family. They continue to monitor the virus exceedingly well; every morning, every child's temperature is checked. You know & can trust that your child is in a safe environment.The diversity in staff is excellent, it's refreshing to know that my child is exposed to different world views and cultures. The staff regularly coordinate fun activities; pyjama days, indigenous learning, musical performers. They make children feel special on their birthday which is just lovely when you sadly have to work.But what sets them apart is that they do the little things really well. Having extra clothes for those times you've forgotten to pack back up clothes. Giving your child special hugs when you're running late and have to rush off. You get a sense of old fashion care while still being at the cutting edge of modern technology with Gaurdian. You know exactly what's happening in your child's life through the use of the Storypark app which is easy to use & updated many times a day.Siobhan Wong, Centre Manager, is always giving of her time & is knowledgeable about complex matters regarding Centrelink, such as Child Care subsidy and being up to date with immunisation records. What impresses me most is her wish to continually improve the centre. She welcomes feedback & actions suggestions. She is backed up by excellent managers.Hayley Jacka, Assistant Centre Manager, is incredible with both children & parents. Her phone manner is always friendly and informative. She has assisted me many times in last minute changes to days & organising any account issues. She has a genuine care for children and a rare love of her job. I've lost count in how many times I hear from children 'Lay-ley is my favourite'.Jodie-Lee & Kate are phenomenal at multi-tasking; there are so many kids that 'only want Jodie & Kate' at drop off & they manage to be all things to all kids at all times. They always have a smile on their faces which I personally find delightful and amazing. I really love that they take the time to give more than just the bare minimum information when you come to pick up your child at the days end.Gaurdian has the most outstanding inside & outside facilities I've seen in my 10 years of daycare. Quiet time is used well with the transmission of learning tools onto the roof; kids can have a nap or engage while lying on their back meaning learning is not interrupted. Outside there's a myriad of options and multiple spaces for children of all ages; several sandpits, climbing apparatus, nature learning, bird houses (with birds!), turtles and even a chicken coupe! They manage the movement of children of differing ages through all of these spaces magnificently.The carpark is easy to get in and out of quickly, even at peak times.Keep up the great work Gaurdian, we're very glad we made the switch

My son has started in Guardian Bruce since he was just 2,5 mons old. I used to worry to much about his wellbeing in daycare. But after nearly a year my son stay with them, i am totally happy now. He is very active, socialize, happy and love all the staffs in there. 100% reccomend this centre for parents. I will have a second one coming soon and i am happy to send her there when she is around 4,5mons.

BEST CHILDCARE CENTRE IN CANBERRA!Amazing educators who truly care about the children. I feel relaxed leaving my two year old with the educators all day. My child absolutely adores all of them and sometimes I think my daughter loves them more than she loves me!! We see them all as family not just educators. The centre itself is clean and full of fun activities for the children to do. The play area is huge and plenty of fun activities for the little ones. The educators keep you informed daily with things about the day and about your child which is a bonus. They supply yummy and healthy meals and my daughter loves it. This centre is more than a centre it's a second home for my daughter and she loves it so much. I cant recomended Guardian in Bruce highly enough. Honestly best centre!! My daughter will be staying there until BIG school. We are very lucky to have found them <3 It's worth every penny!

Educators are loving and caring. Management is great - very approachable, always look for new ideas. Centre promotes healthy eating and sustainability. Management organises many events outside work hours e.g. xmas party for families every year, Easter egg hunt, mother's and father's days special evenings, Aboriginal story evenings around the fire, lots of fundraising activities just to name a few. I love the variety the Centre offers and that people who work there sincerely love what they are doing.

Welcome to our Centre

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.

Eligible children who turn 3 years of age on or before 30 April 2024 may receive up to 300 hours of free preschool. This fee support is on top of any Child Care Subsidy eligible families receive. Ask us for more information when you visit our Centre. 

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.

My son has started in Guardian Bruce since he was just 2,5 mons old. I used to worry to much about his wellbeing in daycare. But after nearly a year my son stay with them, i am totally happy now. He is very active, socialize, happy and love all the staffs in there. 100% reccomend this centre for parents. I will have a second one coming soon and i am happy to send her there when she is around 4,5mons.

BEST CHILDCARE CENTRE IN CANBERRA!Amazing educators who truly care about the children. I feel relaxed leaving my two year old with the educators all day. My child absolutely adores all of them and sometimes I think my daughter loves them more than she loves me!! We see them all as family not just educators. The centre itself is clean and full of fun activities for the children to do. The play area is huge and plenty of fun activities for the little ones. The educators keep you informed daily with things about the day and about your child which is a bonus. They supply yummy and healthy meals and my daughter loves it. This centre is more than a centre it's a second home for my daughter and she loves it so much. I cant recomended Guardian in Bruce highly enough. Honestly best centre!! My daughter will be staying there until BIG school. We are very lucky to have found them <3 It's worth every penny!

I highly recommend this childcare. The staff are friendly, they communicate regularly with parents and make a huge effort at putting the children first. The centre is clean, open plan and an adventure playground for my little one.

I've had two children attend Guardian ELC Bruce (one current 2019) and I couldn't be happier. Belle and her staff are truly fantastic. Great indoor facilities and a large outdoor play area.

Educators are loving and caring. Management is great - very approachable, always look for new ideas. Centre promotes healthy eating and sustainability. Management organises many events outside work hours e.g. xmas party for families every year, Easter egg hunt, mother's and father's days special evenings, Aboriginal story evenings around the fire, lots of fundraising activities just to name a few. I love the variety the Centre offers and that people who work there sincerely love what they are doing.

Every part of our experience at Guardian Bruce has been excellent. It’s always hard to leave your child in the care of others but the wonderful educators here have made it the best experience possible. My son loves his friends, that activities and especially, his educators!
