Guardian Childcare & Education Wanniassa

Guardian Childcare & Education Wanniassa is one of six state-of-the-art Guardian Childcare Centres in the ACT. The Centre has a strong focus on sustainability, boasting a range of exciting, resource-rich environments including an open-plan outdoor space, vegetable gardens, a compost bin, a worm farm and an active recycling program.

The first five years of your child’s life are incredibly important when it comes to social and emotional development, and setting them up with a love of learning that lasts a lifetime. That’s why at Guardian Wanniassa we’re focused on teaching children how to learn versus just ticking a box. This approach to education comes to life in our Preschool Program, which is led by qualified teachers who are there to help prepare your child for the exciting transition to school.

Our on-site chef prepares 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, our chef runs fortnightly cooking lessons and has a designated spot for children to sit and watch her cook – this helps the children gain a wonderful understanding of nutrition and encourages them to try new foods.

At Guardian Wanniassa 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.
