We are really happy at Guardian Wanniassa. Every morning, our child is greeted by a number of different staff members, who are warm and welcoming. It’s nice to see the same and consistent staff every day.The communication from the centre is great and we receive regular storypark updates. We highly recommend this centre.

I love this childcare! My child has been attending for over 12 months now, and I always have peace of mind knowing she is safe, well looked after and fed very well while in their care. I am always kept up to date with what is going in the centre and with my child. The facility is always clean, well presented, has loads of natural light and most importantly an amazing team of childcare workers. The childcare director Michelle, is such a lovely and welcoming face and runs the centre very well, ensuring the educators to child ratio is spot on. I 100% recommended!

Our son loves his time at Guardian Wanniassa. Staff are wonderful and are amazing with communication. They work hard to promote a sense of community throughout the centre. The centre is very clean and well run, and they’re always updating their resources.As first time parents and our son’s first time in care, we have found the experience to be almost seamless, and they completely guided us in introducing him to the centre. He has learnt so much in the 6 months he’s been there, and we feel so fortunate to be apart of the Guardian community.

The Staff at Guardian Childcare Wanniassa are approachable and present. They have been informative and value each child/family. The transition to a new centre isn't always easy but the staff made this experience less stressful and have given our family a sense of ease during the whole process.

Guardian Wannissa a spectacular early learning centre where not only do our children learn and nourish in an inclusive and caring environment, but who's educators also feel like family to us.our two Children Joey and Delilah both have attended the centre, have been taught and cared for at Wanniassa by a team of amazing educators.it truly speaks volumes as a parent when your children are excited to go to school and give hugs to their educators, and on return after a long day are happy and smiling.Michelle and her team have been like a family to us and after 5 years at the centre this is our last year as our little miss spreads her wings and moves on to preschool, all the skills she has learned at Guardian will certainly give her a great start on her new journey.I highly reccommend Guardian Wanniassa Early Learning Centre, the educators are committed, caring and informative with all areas of the care and education of the children in the centre.any concerns or queries as a parent Michelle takes on board and addresses in a professional yet caring manner.Ii would like to say a massive thankyou to Michelle our amazing centre director and the team at guardian Wanniassa for a wonderfulv 5 years.

Both of my children now attend guardian wanniassa and I wouldn't enrol them anywhere else. My eldest has been there since they were just newly opened, and any concerns I have ever had they have been answered professionally and promptly.

Welcome to our Centre

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.

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. 

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.

Guardian Childcare & Education Wanniassa offers plenty of open space for children to explore, move and play throughout the day. An abundance of natural light floods the open planned centre, creating a warm and bright environment. Outside, the well-kept play yard features natural stones, grassed spaces, trees and sandpits that promote discovery and adventure.

Quality educational resources keep the standard of learning high, with an experienced and established team that are experts in their field. Each and every one of our educators is passionate about helping our children learn, grow and develop confidence in their abilities.

Clear and frequent communication with families is paramount, and we pride ourselves on the strong relationships we have built as a result. Our dedicated resource room provides a private space for educators and families to meet, or for families to relax.

Our on-site cooks prepare delicious meals that are rotated with each new season. All meals are nutritious, balanced, and cater to all tastes and preferences.
