Guardian Childcare & Education Brighton

Guardian Childcare & Education Brighton (formerly Fox Kids) is a light-filled and homely Centre with a beautiful oak tree on full display, vegetable gardens, a stream, a mud pit, alfresco dining areas and a range of age-specific studios.

Children get out and about on weekly excursions at Guardian Brighton, so we have a great connection with the surrounding community. We visit various locations in our leafy suburb, including the school next door, which is a key part in our Preschool Program designed to prepare your child for the exciting transition to school.

With a diverse range of cultural backgrounds amongst our Educators and children at Guardian Brighton, we love exploring cultural differences, as well as embracing various holidays and celebrations throughout the year.

Our on-site cook, Denesh, prepares five nutritionally balanced meals using seasonal ingredients every day. To further explore food at the Centre, we offer self-serving opportunities during mealtimes, and host weekly hands-on cooking classes to help the children extend their knowledge of nutrition and encourage them to try new foods.

Begin the adventure at Guardian Brighton today by booking a tour to explore the Centre or speaking to one of our team.
