Guardian Childcare & Education Box Hill

Guardian Childcare & Education Box Hill NQS Rated Exceeding by ACECQA

Our centre has been recognised as ‘Exceeding’ the National Quality Standard. This is the highest rating you can receive from a regulatory authority assessment and we are proud to deliver an exceptional service to the children and families who attend our centre.

Guardian Childcare & Education Box Hill has won several industry awards, including Best Childcare Centre in 2018 and boasts a range of indoor and outdoor environments, including herb and vegetable gardens, a spacious deck and natural play structures where children are encouraged to explore and learn.

Located 14km east of the Melbourne CBD, Guardian Box Hill is a convenient choice for families seeking high-quality care close to home, or on the way to the city for work. It is also a great choice for families living in bordering suburbs, including Blackburn, Mont Albert, Bennettswood, Balwyn and Canterbury.

Guardian Box Hill offers a leading Kindergarten Program, led by our university-qualified teachers which helps prepare our older children for the exciting transition to school. This program is in addition to the amazing learning experiences our dedicated Educators and Teachers prepare for children of all ages – from six months to six years.

Children have the opportunity to explore the local community through the Guardian Box Hill excursion program, visiting locations such as the local café, aged care facility, library, local shops and the vet. With a community-minded team of Educators who have been with the Centre for many years, you can be assured when it comes to consistency in high-quality care and education.

Our on-site cook prepares five nutritionally balanced meals using seasonal ingredients every day, with the children and Educators often collecting herbs and vegetables from the Centre gardens to add to the daily meals and use in cooking classes.
