Guardian Childcare & Education in Glen Eira

With six high-quality childcare centres in the City of Glen Eira, every day is an opportunity for discovery and growth at Guardian Childcare & Education.

Our play-based learning programs are led by qualified Teachers and experienced Educators to support children in developing those important social and emotional skills, along with literacy, numeracy and problem-solving ability. Aligned with the Early Years Framework, the National Quality Standard and the Australian school curriculum, we support children to build a lifetime love of learning.

We are proud to be part of the Kindy Tick program. Thanks to the Victorian Government, families can access up to 15 hours of Free Kindergarten a week, in addition to the Child Care Subsidy, from 1st January 2024. The funding offsets the fees for three and four-year-olds enrolled in our long day care Kindergarten program. This means that families can save up to $2,050 a year.

Children participate in a range of exciting learning experiences in our childcare centres in the Glen Eira area. These may include language, dance, yoga and sport. Our modern purpose-built Centres feature stunning outdoor play spaces. Our fees include sunscreen, linen, baby formula, nappies and incredible on-site Chefs preparing five fresh, nutritious meals and snacks each day.

Our Glen Eira childcare centres are close to public transport and local primary schools. Guardian childcare centres are a proud part of the local community and opportunities for families to come together.

We are committed to ensuring safe, secure and inviting environments for babies, toddlers, and kindergarten-aged children.
