Guardian Childcare & Education Blackburn South

Welcome to Guardian Childcare & Education Blackburn South, a modern, purpose-built and vibrant centre. 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 South child care centre is conveniently situated for families living in surrounding suburbs Burwood East, Box Hill, Nunawading, Forest Hill, Vermont and Bennettswood.

Our exciting, resource-rich environments include:

  • Passionate, friendly Educators who focus on relationships with children and families
  • Engaging, light-filled learning spaces to inspire curiosity, fun, and a sense of belonging
  • Expansive outdoor environment with a water pump, creek bed, vegetable gardens, a teepee and natural climbing structures to spark curiosity and adventure

Supported through a caring, dedicated team of University-qualified Teachers and Educators, our Blackburn South day care and child care centre 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.

We celebrate our culturally diverse team at our Blackburn South early learning centre with a variety of events throughout the year.

Children are taken out and about on weekly excursions to grow their connection with the local community. We visit various locations such as local parks, cafes, forests and Blackburn Lake.

Children attending our Centre will also have the chance to see the same familiar faces as they move on up from our nursery room, into our Blackburn South 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.

If you’re looking to begin the adventure and are wanting to explore, book a tour and meet our team at Guardian Childcare & Education Blackburn South today!
