The management and staff at this centre are amazing. I cannot thank them enough for the love and attention they give to our daughter, whom we enroled here since she was 8 months old. The manager is very attentive to all the kids and teachers, and there's barely any staff turnaround. My daughter loves her educators and looks forward to seeing her friends. The centre is one of the smallest ones we've seen, with fewer than 50 children in total, which makes it easier to provide the individual care. The infants room has never had more than 8-9 babies over the past months that our daughter has gone there. The babies also get to go on excursions to a nearby park on an octa-pram, which is both fun and safe for them. All in all, a great cozy childcare where you can develop personal relations with all the staff and have peace of mind about your kid.

Guardian Box Hill is such a wonderful childcare facility. It feels so warm and welcoming like a home rather than a centre but also with such professionalism, energy and inspiration from the amazing staff. It is such a reasurring feeling to enrol your child at a place where you know they will be safe, happy, cared for and will be enriched by a variety of both creative and structured learning opportunities. Their attention to detail is outstanding.

Fantastic educator as a very cosy childcare. Love that it is not on a main road but still easily accessible. My child has experienced growth in cognition, social skills and behaviour since attending which is exactly what we were after!

What a wonderful centre with lovely staff who take so much care in looking after your little one! Our child has been going there since a few months and we're happy the way she has been settling despite of a new place for her. The Centre Manager Veronica is excellent especially when it comes to individual attention and responds to all your queries promptly. We love the different activities and experiences they organise for little ones. The staff is so warm and always welcome all of us with a wide smile and greetings!

My daughter has been going to this centre since she was in babies room and now is in toddler room, and I can't praise enough for the experience we have had throughout. Centre director Veronica takes every pain to not only make sure that every child is taken care of their individual needs but also makes every effort to make sure the parents are at ease in every way possible. All the educators are incredibly affectionate and caring towards the children and always have a smiling face even at the end of a tiring day. Highly highly recommended.. it's truly a home away home for the child!!

This is such a beautiful centre. My daughter is about to finish here after 4 1/2 years, and my 2yo is still here. They genuinely care so much about the kids; and put so much effort and thought into activities and interests for the kids. There is great stability of educators, and they are knowledgeable and caring. My kids love it here, and so do I.

My daughter has been attending the centre since she was almost 11 months old until now (5.5 yo). I have actually enrolled her in a different daycare before I found Guardian Box Hill (when it was still called Sweetland Rd ELC!), and when I did the centre tour, I just fell in love with how everything is set up, and the whole feel of the centre. So, I moved her right away. The educators have been so wonderful with helping her adjusting to childcare life, considering that she was a very clingy baby and I felt safe leaving her in their hands. I feel that her development and learning is well supported here and it has been amazing to see her personality blooms over the past 4 years. I am very grateful for Veronica and her team and will not hesitate to put my youngest here next year when I have to go back to work!

As a first time mum, putting your child in a childcare is one of the hardest thing to do! After a lot of research, consideration and discussions, I decided to choose Guardian Box Hill for my 13 month old son. I never regret the decision! They might be not a very big center, but they have a homey feeling where my son feels loved and taken care of. This is the type of childcare where ‘everyone knows everybody’, they have experienced staffs that has been working there for ages. I’m so grateful for the educators in this place (especially Maggie and Rupinder) because they really care, passionate and loving the children in the babies room. I feel so relieved seeing that my son is settled and loving this place, he’s so excited to come here and sometimes doesn’t even want to leave. Veronica the center manager is very kind, understanding, flexible and very reassuring as well. I feel so lucky to find this place and trusting my son into their care. I will highly recommend Guardian Box Hill if you’re looking for a caring, reliable and homey childcare for your precious little ones.

Both my kids have been cared for by the amazing staff at Guardian Box Hill. My son started at the centre when we moved to the area when he was 3yo back in 2015 and my daughter started at 9.5months in 2017 (she's now 4yo).Quite a few of the carers/educators at the centre have been there for many years which speaks volumes of the warm and caring environment at the centre.The centre has a homely and inviting feel which I love and both my kids have enjoyed their time at Guardian Box Hill, my son still has fond memories there.

This was the 3rd child care place we looked at for our son 2 years ago and as soon as we were welcomed at the door and stepped into the building we knew it would be the right fit for our family. The place is bright, clean and has a homely feel. The educators are friendly and genuine. Our son has been happy here, starting off in the baby room and now a big kinder boy. We are more then happy to recommend this wonderful child care.

I have had my daughter attend Guardian since she was 9 months (currently 17 months). She attended Guardian three days a week at the start and two days at another childcare centre nearby my home residence. In comparison of her attendance simultaneously with Guardian and the other childcare, I was able to differentiate the level of care my daughter received. Where Guardian, communicates directly to us regarding her day, if non-attendance Guardian contacts us to check in on my daughters welfare, when concerns arises with my daughter we are immediately notified even if it may seem not important, and many other little things that are really the big things during our daughter’s development in her early childhood years. She is now attends on full-time basis from June 2020. Although, she stayed home with me during COVID19 as I was working from home. Guardian found ways to engage interaction with Sofya so that she doesn't lose her connection with the staff by inviting her to zoom sessions, reading books, singing and seeing the people and children at the childcare. I simply enjoy the interaction with the staff in discussion of her day at their care and the daily StoryPark update where I am able to see pictures what she has been up to on that day. I highly recommend Guardian childcare for their friendliness, prompt response and ability to provide the best care, the security and appropriateness in their dealings in regards to her daily well-being and etc. I solely want to thank all the staff making me feel comfortable in my journey in raising Sofya after when that uneasiness of transitioning to going back to work after maternity leave. Thank you Rupinder and Maggie for making our daughter feel safe and happy.

My son attends Sweetland road and we are so happy with the centre. The staff are caring, nurturing and experienced. Management are friendly and approachable. Staff really get to know your child. There’s a real garden outside which is huge and allows for plenty of fun activities. The environment inside is warm and welcoming with both natural and man made resources to encourage learning. The food menu is restaurant quality and varies each season to expose the children to a variety of tastes. There are well thought out educational yet fun activities every day ( eg cooking, games, play doh, painting ) special days and celebrations eg NAIDOC week, Chinese New Year, tree day, Father’s Day, and the centre also organises incursions and excursions.

My daughter has been in this Childcare for almost two years now. She got lots of friends there now and she feels comfortable there. The educators often give me feedback on how we can help kid to develop better in certain area. The center manager and educators are like friends for us, I feel lucky that I found this place for my daughter. There are not many child care center can do really well like this.

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, our Guardian Box Hill childcare centre 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.

At our Guardian Box Hill early learning centre, we have a leading two-year funded 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.

The Victorian Government offers funding to provide families up to 15 hours of Free Kindergarten a week, in addition to the Childcare Subsidy. The funding offsets the fees for three and four-year-old children that are part of the centre’s long day care Kindergarten program. Families will save up to $2,050 a year for children aged three years old and above in eligible long day cares in 2024. Ask us for more information when you visit our Centre. 

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.

Book a tour of our Guardian Box Hill long day care centre today, or speak to one of our friendly team.

We’re Exceeding! What does that mean? Every six months, our Centres are assessed by ACECQA, the national body with the responsibility for monitoring the quality of all registered child care centres in Australia.

So, I moved her right away. The educators have been so wonderful with helping her adjusting to childcare life, considering that she was a very clingy baby and I felt safe leaving her in their hands. I feel that her development and learning is well supported here and it has been amazing to see her personality blooms over the past 4 years. I am very grateful for Veronica and her team and will not hesitate to put my youngest here next year when I have to go back to work!

As a first time mum, putting your child in a childcare is one of the hardest thing to do! After a lot of research, consideration and discussions, I decided to choose Guardian Box Hill for my 13 month old son. I never regret the decision! They might be not a very big center, but they have a homey feeling where my son feels loved and taken care of. This is the type of childcare where ‘everyone knows everybody’, they have experienced staffs that has been working there for ages. I’m so grateful for the educators in this place (especially Maggie and Rupinder) because they really care, passionate and loving the children in the babies room. I feel so relieved seeing that my son is settled and loving this place, he’s so excited to come here and sometimes doesn’t even want to leave. Veronica the center manager is very kind, understanding, flexible and very reassuring as well. I feel so lucky to find this place and trusting my son into their care. I will highly recommend Guardian Box Hill if you’re looking for a caring, reliable and homey childcare for your precious little ones.

Both my kids have been cared for by the amazing staff at Guardian Box Hill. My son started at the centre when we moved to the area when he was 3yo back in 2015 and my daughter started at 9.5months in 2017 (she's now 4yo).Quite a few of the carers/educators at the centre have been there for many years which speaks volumes of the warm and caring environment at the centre.The centre has a homely and inviting feel which I love and both my kids have enjoyed their time at Guardian Box Hill, my son still has fond memories there.

This was the 3rd child care place we looked at for our son 2 years ago and as soon as we were welcomed at the door and stepped into the building we knew it would be the right fit for our family. The place is bright, clean and has a homely feel. The educators are friendly and genuine. Our son has been happy here, starting off in the baby room and now a big kinder boy. We are more then happy to recommend this wonderful child care.

I have had my daughter attend Guardian since she was 9 months (currently 17 months). She attended Guardian three days a week at the start and two days at another childcare centre nearby my home residence. In comparison of her attendance simultaneously with Guardian and the other childcare, I was able to differentiate the level of care my daughter received. Where Guardian, communicates directly to us regarding her day, if non-attendance Guardian contacts us to check in on my daughters welfare, when concerns arises with my daughter we are immediately notified even if it may seem not important, and many other little things that are really the big things during our daughter’s development in her early childhood years. She is now attends on full-time basis from June 2020. Although, she stayed home with me during COVID19 as I was working from home. Guardian found ways to engage interaction with Sofya so that she doesn't lose her connection with the staff by inviting her to zoom sessions, reading books, singing and seeing the people and children at the childcare. I simply enjoy the interaction with the staff in discussion of her day at their care and the daily StoryPark update where I am able to see pictures what she has been up to on that day. I highly recommend Guardian childcare for their friendliness, prompt response and ability to provide the best care, the security and appropriateness in their dealings in regards to her daily well-being and etc. I solely want to thank all the staff making me feel comfortable in my journey in raising Sofya after when that uneasiness of transitioning to going back to work after maternity leave. Thank you Rupinder and Maggie for making our daughter feel safe and happy.

My son attends Sweetland road and we are so happy with the centre. The staff are caring, nurturing and experienced. Management are friendly and approachable. Staff really get to know your child. There’s a real garden outside which is huge and allows for plenty of fun activities. The environment inside is warm and welcoming with both natural and man made resources to encourage learning. The food menu is restaurant quality and varies each season to expose the children to a variety of tastes. There are well thought out educational yet fun activities every day ( eg cooking, games, play doh, painting ) special days and celebrations eg NAIDOC week, Chinese New Year, tree day, Father’s Day, and the centre also organises incursions and excursions.

My daughter has been in this Childcare for almost two years now. She got lots of friends there now and she feels comfortable there. The educators often give me feedback on how we can help kid to develop better in certain area. The center manager and educators are like friends for us, I feel lucky that I found this place for my daughter. There are not many child care center can do really well like this.
