Guardian Childcare & Education Camberwell

Welcome to Guardian Childcare & Education Camberwell, a unique and inviting day care centre split between two 1930s houses, featuring high ceilings, native trees and a spacious outdoor area. Our childhood education programs are focused on play-based learning, where 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 Camberwell day care and child care centre is conveniently situated for families living in surrounding suburbs such as Hawthorn East, Canterbury, Surrey Hills, Burwood and Glen Iris.

Our exciting, resource-rich environments include:

  • Passionate Educators who focus on relationships with children and families
  • Spacious, age-specific studios designed to inspire curiosity, fun, and a sense of belonging
  • Engaging outdoor environment including a water play area, pergola and natural play structures to help spark learning and exploration.

Supported through a passionate and dedicated team of University-qualified Teachers and Educators, our child care and day care centre in Camberwell 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.

At our Camberwell child care centre, we’re proud to have a culturally diverse team, with several Mandarin-speaking Educators.

Children also get out and about on regular excursions into the local community, with a beautiful park and library within walking distance from the centre.

Children attending our Camberwell child care centre will also have the chance to see the same familiar faces as they move on up from our nursery room, into our 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 the 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 Camberwell today!
