Every day is an opportunity for discovery and growth at Guardian Childcare & Early Learning – Hillside. With a range of exciting, resource-rich environments including vegetable gardens, a sandpit, natural play structures and a range of age-specific ateliers, children are encouraged to explore and learn.

Our on-site cook, Kathy, who has been with the centre for over 10 years, prepares five nutritionally balanced meals using seasonal ingredients every day. Children love to interact with Kathy and are encouraged to help prepare their meals alongside the cook, to enhance understanding about good nutrition. Children can also enjoy their meals in the dedicated piazza while socialising.

We invite you to tour our centre to learn more about our high-quality Curriculum and Reggio-inspired early learning environments.

Learn More About Our Centre

Guardian Childcare & Early Learning Centre – Hillside provides a friendly and engaging centre for all families. The children can learn, grow and develop in a range of expansive spaces that offer endless stimulation for big imaginations. The outdoor spaces are set up daily with the children, which allow them to be the creators of their own play experiences.

The children at our centre love experimenting with recyclable materials, like constructing city buildings out of boxes. We also try to incorporate a lot of natural materials from local parklands into our program, so that children can learn about the natural environment around them.

The children enjoy hosting special guest visitors that link in with what they are learning. An example of this is when we were investigating owls, and we invited keepers to bring an owl along to our centre for the children to see and touch. Further to this the Children at Guardian Childcare & Early Learning – Hillside are provided with opportunities to further investigate topic of interest through Excursions. For example when the Pre Kinder Children we investigation different modes of transport the group were provided with the opportunity to go on a Bus Trip around Melbourne.

Our educators are always excited to meet new families and their children. We go the extra mile to ensure that you are well-informed about your child’s day and developmental progress. Our door is always open for you to visit throughout the day and on special events, and we can always call you to provide an update on your child for peace of mind.
