Welcome to our Centre

We can’t wait to welcome your family to our brand new, purpose-built childcare centre in Tarneit; where your child will be supported to be creative, bold, and imaginative in their learning.

Our Tarneit early learning centre offers state-of-the-art facilities and is conveniently situated for families in the surrounding community of Melbourne’s western suburbs. Located close to Tarneit Rise Primary School and Nearnung Primary School, and walking distance to the train station, our Tarneit day-care and kindergarten is a great choice for children aged six weeks to six years.

The education and care of children is our top priority. Each child is supported to explore their world in a safe and secure way within a warm and stimulating environment. The passionate, dedicated team of Teachers and Educators ensure that each child receives care tailored to their individual needs by providing a personalised approach to play-based learning.

Guardian Childcare & Education Tarneit is in high demand with families in the area, due to our high quality education, care, and world-class environments which include:

  • Fresh, modern indoor learning spaces to inspire wonder, curiosity, and a sense of belonging.
  • Incredible programs such as Joy of Reading, Cooking & Nutrition, Out & About Community Excursions and Sustainability, with daily learning experiences designed to support your child’s development and growth
  • Large outdoor spaces bursting with resources to spark discovery and imagination.
  • On-site Chef who cooks fresh, healthy meals daily in our fully equipped kitchen

Our Centre provides nappies, SPF 50+ sunscreen, all nutritious meals and snacks, high quality formula and bed linen.

Your child will have the chance to see the same familiar faces as they move on up from our nursery room, into our dedicated two-year funded Kindergarten program, designed specifically to prepare each child for a smooth transition from early learning to primary school.

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. 

As part of our unique Visible Learning Program, families will be able to gain an understanding of their child’s education. Our Learning Exchange Display will provide the opportunity for our Teachers and Educators to share updates on your child’s progress. It will also be a chance for you to have direct input into your child’s learning!

Families will have access to our communication app Storypark, allowing us to share important Centre updates, as well as exciting activities or milestones – ensuring that you remain connected, day-to-day.

Our Tarneit Centre is in high demand, and we don’t want your family to miss out. Book a tour now to see our high-quality, brand-new childcare centre in Tarneit.

Learn More About Our Centre

Guardian Childcare & Education Tarneit is a beautiful new, purpose-built Centre where children can experience a safe and secure environment where they feel empowered to grow and develop at their own pace. Our experienced Educators are warm and welcoming and develop genuine relationships with each child to understand their unique interests, skills and talents.

Guardian Childcare & Education Tarneit provides high-quality education and day care for families in Tarneit and the surrounding suburbs of Werribee. We have a nurturing and stimulating environment that truly caters to each child’s individual needs. Our qualified Educators and Teachers are passionate about providing an engaging program for children of all ages, including babies, toddlers and preschoolers.

We’re open from 7.00 am to 6.00 pm from Monday to Friday, so families have the opportunity to experience a little bit of added flexibility in the hours they choose for their child to be at our Centre. During drop-off and pick-up times, we encourage you to spend some time inside the Centre, talking to our Educators and exploring their learning environment for yourself. This can help families stay more connected to their child’s learning and provides an opportunity for our Educators to discover ways to enhance your child’s growth and development at childcare.

Our indoor learning area is filled with fun and engaging learning materials for the children to explore and engage with using their imaginations and creativity. Through play-based learning, children have the opportunity to develop their understanding of the world around them and practice engaging their critical thinking, creativity and imagination.

Children are also encouraged to spend some of their time in our outdoor play space, where they can experience a variety of resources and natural elements that spark their curiosity and engage their senses. Children can examine and explore the properties of water through our fun water feature area, or they may like to replicate some structures they have seen in the real world with our large sandpit.

Three and four-year-old children have the opportunity to take part in our kindergarten program alongside our long day care. Our kindergarten curriculum provides children with some of the skills and confidence they’ll need as they make the exciting step up into primary school.

Some of the benefits of our kindergarten program are:

  • We provide a safe and secure learning environment where children feel trusted and supported to be themselves. We foster the emotional and social development that children need to begin developing a sense of identity, and connection with their world, and to advocate for their wellbeing.
  • We foster creativity in the lead-up to transitioning into primary school, through play-based learning that encourages an understanding of basic shapes, numbers and phonics.
  • We develop children’s self-respect and confidence, empowering them to make decisions for themselves and to take responsibility for their learning. Through the increased independence that comes with this, children feel more comfortable being separated from families and can feel more empowered to try new things as they begin primary school.

Our family communication app, Storypark, provides you with access to photos, videos and updates on your child’s progress at our Centre. We create learning outcomes for each child to help both our Educators and families track their child’s development, growth and learning in those first few years of life.

As part of our unique Visible Learning Program, families will be able to gain an understanding of their child’s education. Our Learning Exchange Display will provide the opportunity for our Teachers and Educators to share updates on your child’s progress. It will also be a chance for you to have direct input into your child’s learning!

Why not come and meet the team and have a look around our Centre today? We’d love to show you why Guardian Tarneit is the perfect learning environment for your child. At Guardian, we believe that together, we can create life-long learners.

We look forward to welcoming you soon!
