Welcome to our Centre

Guardian Childcare & Education Kinfolk Albury is an architecturally designed Centre located in the heart of Albury. The Centre has been purpose-built to deliver high quality care and education to children aged from six weeks to six years.

The large, light filled piazza is a communal area housing our central kitchen. It is also home to the Guardian Kinfolk Albury creative space, the Atelier, which provides a dedicated area for children to explore and interact with resources and each other.

Detailed attention has been placed on planning each indoor and outdoor space at the Centre with a focus on nature and sustainability. Our Centre has been designed to stimulate children’s creativity, exploration and sense of belonging.

Teachers and Educators at Guardian Kinfolk Albury also provide wonderful learning programs for the children, including a leading Preschool Program for those preparing for the transition to primary school.

Every element of Guardian Kinfolk Albury has been designed with your child at the heart of their early learning experience. This is supported by our world-class curriculum and is inspired by the internationally renowned Reggio Emilia.

Eligible children who turn 4 years old on or before 31 July 2024 will receive up to $2,110 in additional subsidies. This fee support is on top of any Child Care Subsidy eligible families may be receiving. If your child is 3 years old and not yet 4 years old on, or before 31 July in 2024 and is enrolled at our Centre, you will receive up to $500 in fee relief. Ask us for more information when you visit our Centre. 

We want your children to be cared for, educated and to experience a sense of belonging. We support this by providing Enrichment Programs at no extra cost, embedded into your child’s daily curriculum. These include; Sustainability, Social and Emotional, Music and Movement, Community Art and also through cooking experiences conducted by our wonderful Chef.

We believe in the importance of our community and the rich resources our local region brings. We respect and value the richness that diversity in our community offers, from the Wiradjuri culture of our region to the welcoming of international traditions.
