My kids have attended Guardian Essendon for more than a year. The services provided by the centre is well above nearby centres as we have tried a few in the area over the last 5 years.Some of the amazing things about this centre are:- The centre manager is so kind and would always respond to all emails/requests in a timely manner. She will offer help and be flexible with arrangements if she can.- They have educators who have been with the centre for many years. My daughter's educator in the toddler room this year is a super star, she comes up with the most creative and amazing activities for the kids, as well as a high quality educational program that really teach kids some vital skills.- Communication from the centre's management and the educators is the best I've experienced. They would let you know in advance about staff arrangements, special events and any issues with your kids. They also share regular updates of the kids development. I just received my daughter's end of year book, the pages are so thoughtfully created with lots of beautiful photos and information, it really brought tears to my eyes reading through it.And if you ask my kids who is their favorite person, they will always say the educators' name!

Thanks Marianne and the team for always taking such good care of my girls. It makes leaving them each day a little easier knowing they are with really good people who genuinely care for them.

We absolutely love Guardian Childcare & Education in Essendon. Our daughter started in the nursery as a baby and is now a toddler in another room. Seeing her grow and flourish into such an amazing and confident person is just so fantastic. The staff are so caring and attentive to each individual child, and they take the time to learn and understand each child’s little differences too – which really makes it a home away from home. The facilities are fantastic and communication has always been excellent. Our daughter has learnt so much; her language, coordination and socialisation skills has made a significant leap thanks to the outstanding curriculum that the educators deliver – she comes home singing the alphabet with so much joy. Our son has now started in the nursery and we cannot wait to see him grow with the guardian family too. We highly recommend – Best child care centre in Essendon.

All of the educators are lovely and our daughter loves them all. When we were choosing a childcare for our daughter we wanted to see how she responded to the environment. The minute she went straight to Jess we knew she would be in good hands and it was where she wanted to be. We love the centre

I have nothing but thanks and praise for the wonderful team at Guardian Childcare Essendon! My little one started there when she was just 9 months old - and being a co-vid baby, I knew it would be a BIG adjustment for her. It was a big adjustment - but couldn't have possibly gone more smoothly than it did with the fabulous educators there!The whole team spent so much time getting to know my little one in all her particularities, so they could really adjust their approach around sleep, feeding, and bottles to help her settle in there. This was no small task, yet with patience and good humour they accomplished it.Their communication with us was amazing (faultless really) throughout. I was never left worrying how my little one was doing (a blessing when you're back to work and need that certainty of knowing your bub is safe, well and cared for).I also love that they provide so much exploratory learning for the little ones there - plus loads of indoor and outdoor play. It's messy, joyful, and the kids just love it!To Monica (educator extraordinaire!), Kaya, Marianne, Jess R, Jess, E, Joyce and all the wonderful team at Guardian Essendon (sorry I can't include all of your names!) our most heartfelt thanks. You did that one thing we didn't necessarily expect from a childcare centre - really got to know and care about our little one for the sparky individual she is.

It's such a challenging time right now within our current environment with COVID-19. My husband and I just wanted to give a shout out to the new Assistant Centre Manager Marianne and her team of educators. They are all doing such a great job. Their level of care, professionalism along with their ability to communicate effectively certainly gives that confidence we need as parents when leaving our son in their care. We recently transitioned from another centre and wish we did this much sooner, they have made our transition effortless always going above and beyond to make it easy when our son suffers with separation anxiety. Thank you to Marianne and the team!

Both my kids attend (my daughter for 3 years now) and we are really happy there. The educators are welcoming, friendly, great with kids and adapt to their individual needs. I have always felt comfortable talking with the educators and or managers if i have needed to address something. Bianca the Manager (or most recent manager) was fantastic and really made great changes - otherwise, i think we would have changed places with the manager who was running it before (over 3 years ago now). It's a humble daycare and most importantly, our kids are happy, learning and enjoy going.

We have found the Centre Manager Bianca, to be amazing! We have had our daughter there for 2 years and she sufers with separation anxiety. But Bianca and the caring Educators have always made sure that our drops offs have gone smoothly and Bianca has ensured that the communication channels are open at all times.She runs a fabulous centre and is a very professional operator!

We have moved to this place this year and so far our daughter is having a great experience. The place is well equipped with a big range of activities for the kids on a daily basis. Also the educators are very good as well as the centre management which we found them very helpful during the signing up process and later on with handling all of queries. The working hours and the fact that they are only off on public holidays is handy specially around the Christmas holidays.
