Our childhood education programs are focused on play-based learning, and our spacious day care and child care centre provides a nurturing and stimulating environment for children aged six weeks to six years of age, supporting them to discover the world in a safe and secure way.

Our Blackburn North day care and child care centre is conveniently situated for families living in surrounding suburbs such as Blackburn, Box Hill North, Doncaster, Doncaster East, Donvale and Nunawading.

Our high quality, well-resourced environments include:

  • Passionate Educators who focus on relationships with children and families
  • Beautifully designed learning spaces to inspire curiosity, fun, and a sense of belonging
  • Two spacious outdoor play areas with native trees, a ‘secret garden’, tree swing and vegetable patches, sparking adventure and exploration

Supported through a passionate and dedicated team of University-qualified Teachers and Educators, our child care and day care centre in Blackburn North is an inclusive learning environment for children where a personalised approach to learning opportunities ensures children are supported to be bold, creative, and curious in their learning journey.

Easily accessible from Surrey Road, our day care and child care centre Blackburn North is conveniently located near a number of bus stops, and offers onsite parking; making it easier for you during pick up and drop off times. Situated near Cootamundra Park, our Blackburn North child care is also in proximity to Old Orchard Primary School, St Philips Primary School and Blackburn High School, providing ample opportunities for getting out and about into the community.

Children attending our early learning centre will also have the chance to see the same familiar faces as they move on up from our nursery room, into our Blackburn North Kindergarten program, designed specifically to help prepare your child transition from early learning to primary school.

As part of our unique Visible Learning Program, families will also have the chance to gain an understanding of their child’s learning. Easily accessible for families, our Learning Exchange Display provides the opportunity for our Teachers and Educators to share with you any updates on their progress every day. You will also have the chance to share with us your own personal goals and visions for us to implement, having direct input in your child’s educational journey!

Families will also be given access to our family communication app Storypark, where we will share with you any significant updates in your child’s day, as well as any other important updates that happen in our centre – ensuring that you’re always connected, even when you’re not here.

More about Guardian Blackburn North

Guardian Childcare & Education Blackburn North offers a friendly and welcoming atmosphere, with an exciting outdoor program with a 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 have access to a large space complete with climbing and obstacle equipment to continuously challenge children’s growing skills and abilities. There is also a cubby house and a 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. 

Our friendly educators are approachable, knowledgeable and passionate about each and every child, providing a high quality of child 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 within our educational environment. 

Learning at Guardian Early Education & Childcare 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 – and our team of Educators and Teachers understand what that learning looks like every step of the way.
