Guardian Childcare & Education Bentleigh

(Formerly Kids Time)

Guardian Childcare & Education Bentleigh is teaming with learning experiences for children aged from six weeks to six years. The stunning Centre includes herb gardens, a water play area, bike paths, natural play structures and a range of age-specific play areas where children are encouraged to explore and learn.

The light-filled and multi-level Centre has a mix of indoor and outdoor learning environments where the exciting programs and practices comes to life. Children and families at Guardian Bentleigh also have the benefit of a Kindergarten Program led by quality Teachers who are there to help prepare your child for the exciting transition to school.

At Guardian Bentleigh, our children are also excited to get out and about on regular excursions, so we have a great connection with the surrounding community. We often walk to our local shops, post office and primary school, where the children visit the library and get to experience life at ‘big school’ first hand. These real-world experiences build familiarity and help the children make that exciting transition to primary school.

With a community-minded and culturally-diverse team of Educators who have been with the Centre for a long time, we celebrate a variety of holidays throughout the year. To build on our community spirit and teach the children about the world around them, we also host fundraisers for a range of local causes.

Our on-site cook prepares four nutritionally balanced meals using seasonal ingredients every day. To further explore food at the Centre, our Educators host cooking classes for the children to enhance their understanding of good nutrition and to encourage them to try new foods and flavours.
