With two spacious outdoor play areas, nine light-filled learning spaces and two dedicated art spaces your child will have the room to be curious, creative and imaginative in their learning.

Both the indoor and outdoor spaces at our Richlands early learning centre are designed to encourage children to ignite their curiosity, learn and most of all have fun. With large verandas and shady spots for sunny days, plus an alfresco dining area, the Centre is a real home away from home for the children and families. In addition, babies have their own secure play space designed to engage and delight!

Our degree-qualified Teachers will help prepare your child for Primary School with our leading curriculum and Kindergarten Program, which is delivered through incredible play-based experiences.

Regular excursions to explore the local area, as well as a ‘home-away-from-home’ approach to care mean you and your child will feel part of our Centre community. 

From 1 Jan 2024, eligible children will receive up to 15 hours of free Kindergarten per week at our Centre, up to 600 hours of free Kindergarten per year.

We love bringing our toddler to Guardian Richlands. The staff are friendly and attentive. Our daughter is always happy when she arrives to see her educators and enjoys the activities they get to do every day.

I highly recommend this center because they totally look after your kids and if there's something wrong (e.g sick or anything else that bothers the kid) they update you as soon as they saw you in the afternoon or call you as soon as possible. As a first time parent, I really appreciate what they're doing for my son. I can see more improvements after putting him in this center.

Guardian at Richlands is amazing. The staff are friendly and caring. My son enjoys going for the day and playing with the educators and other children. Seeing him happy at the end of the day is what makes me know he's in good hands when I leave him.

The service provided by my Childs Educators in Nursery One, especially Belle and Sharon has been extraordinary and truly admire their jobs on taking care of my son. He has learnt a lot from the centre and we are honestly impressed.

Our family loves this centre. It's so beautiful and new and the educators are all so lovely. Our little boy has become so confident and thrived while being at the centre. I feel happy knowing that he is looked after so well while my husband and I are at work.
