Children also visit the local dentist and post office to deliver letters to their overseas pen pals.

Children and families at Guardian Blackburn North 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.

The Team at Guardian Blackburn North use the family communication app StoryPark to stay connected and ensure families are kept up-to-date about what’s happening in the Centre and what the children have been doing throughout the day. This ongoing partnership promotes continuity of learning.

A dedicated on-site cook prepares five nutritionally balanced meals using seasonal ingredients every day. The children and Educators often collect herbs and vegetables from the gardens to add to the daily meals and use in cooking classes.

More about Guardian Blackburn North

Guardian Childcare & Education Blackburn North offers a friendly and welcoming atmosphere, with an exciting outdoor learning environment that has dedicated spaces for different ages. Children under two have access to a cosy yard with a sheltered verandah and AstroTurf where learning opportunities are planned and set up based on the children’s interests. 

The toddler space includes a large sandpit and cubby house, with easels fixed on the fence for children to use in various creative ways. It also has a large hanging tree which provides plenty of shade during summer. Children over three have a large space covered in AstroTurf, complete with climbing and obstacle equipment to continuously challenge children’s growing skills and abilities. There is also a cubby house and a very popular mud kitchen where children enjoy experimenting and creating. 

All children have access to our unique ‘Secret Garden’, a fenced off space at the back of the centre that is filled with large trees and plants, a big sandpit and dirt pit, gazebo, and a fruit and vegetable patch created by the kindergarten children. They love picking different products from this space to include in their lunch. Our qualified cook prepares fresh and nutritious meals on-site each day, using a four week rotating menu that changes each season. 

Our educators are approachable, knowledgeable and passionate about each and every child in their care. They go out of their way to create strong and trusting relationships with families, so that all children and families feel confident and supported. 

Learning at Guardian – Blackburn north starts early. Children are capable of communication and learning at every age. A child does not reach the age of four or five and become magically ready for primary school. They are learning from the very moment they enter this world as a baby – and our teams and Teachers understand what that learning looks like every step of the way. 

Our approach to learning is about more than 123s and ABCs. We nurture children’s natural desire to learn through play-based experiences that inspire curiosity about the world. We teach through real-word settings and scenarios because our children of today will face a different world tomorrow. They are entering a fast-paced, rapidly changing world, where technology rules and the traditional methods of teaching are no longer as effective. 

That’s why our approach is focused on the latest research and insights into how children learn best, focusing in on the specific skills they will need to thrive in the 21st Century. Guardian Teachers and Educators are continually adjusting their ways of thinking to support the children of today who will require the skills to be: 

  • Innovative and adaptable 
  • Creative, critical thinking problem-solvers and decision-makers 
  • Lifelong learners 
  • Able to work in partnership and collaboration with others. 

If you’re thinking of enrolling at Guardian Blackburn North, we’d encourage you to book a tour today. During your tour you will have the opportunity to meet our Centre Manager, Educators and have a really good look around the Centre while the team answer any questions you may have.
