Take a Look Around
Welcome to our Centre
Welcome to Kilsyth Early Learning Centre, proudly owned by Guardian Childcare & Education!
Our childcare centre in Kilsyth caters for children aged 6 weeks – 6 years, providing them with a ‘home away from home’ where they can learn and grow.
Children experience an exciting program, where they learn through play. At our Kilsyth child care, we ensure children always have opportunities to engage their natural curiosity. From the way we read stories, to the fun educational resources that fill our rooms, we aim to inspire awe and curiosity in everything we do.
On any given day your child may be exploring our outdoor environments, participating in music classes, learning about food and nutrition, learning self-care through regular yoga and mindfulness practice or learning about diversity through exposure to a wide range of cultures.
.The indoor spaces at our Centre balance calming, natural resources with pops of gentle colours. The children have access to a wide range of quality resources that align with their interests and developmental needs. They can read books, play with toys or create their own imaginative play adventures.
The inspiring natural outdoor space is ideal for discovery and play. We believe in encouraging a connection to nature from a young age. Not only does it encourage a necessary appreciation and respect for our planet, but it creates a sense of calm and wonder as nothing else can. From the teepee to the sandpit, bikes, stepping stones and impressive fort, the children develop their physical and gross motor skills while they play outdoors. Large windows connect the indoor and outdoor spaces to offer flexibility in our program.
We also offer a comprehensive, government-approved Kindergarten program, designed to prepare each child for a smooth transition to primary school.
All children attending our Kilsyth day care centre will have access to engaging, resource-rich environments, with:
- An experienced, qualified team who focus on building strong relationships with children and families
- Unique outdoor play spaces ready for hours of exploration
- Incredible learning programs to support children’s curiosity and creativity
- Nutritious and tasty meals and snacks, all prepared fresh on-site daily
We value the strong relationships we build with our community; our organised morning teas give families the opportunity to properly connect.
We even provide healthy take home meals, available from our kitchen – perfect for busy families.
Each day we upload photos to Kindyhub showing what activities the children have been participating in. Our educators also record other health and wellbeing observations such as what your child has eaten and their nappy changes/visits to the toilet.
With a bus stop at the door, our Kilsyth long day care centre is easy to access via public transport. Families can also use the onsite, undercover car park for added convenience. We’re a short drive to Kilsyth Primary School, Gladesville Primary School and Ruskin Park 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.

Rhythm of The Day
With endless possibilities, there’s never a dull moment at Guardian and no two days are the same. Here’s what a day at Guardian might look like. Please note, this will vary depending on centre opening hours.
Handover time with children, families and our friendly Educators. There's a chance for conversation to share what's important for the day/what's happened the night before at home.
Breakfast time where families are welcome to stay and enjoy breakfast with the children.
As children are arriving and families are coming and going, there's an opportunity for play as well as family grouping, open-plan play and multi-age grouping.
As the children come together, planned experiences begin. This is where the Guardian programs and practices come to life. Examples of learning include numeracy, literacy, language, critical thinking, problem solving, leadership, social skills, technology, science, creative arts, curiosity and more.
There's an opportunity for children to come together and enjoy morning tea.
Following morning tea, the planned experiences continue. This includes both indoor and outdoor programs.
There's an opportunity for children to come together for lunch. With an open-door policy, families are able to join the centre for meals and excursion if they wish.
For children who want to, or need to, there's an opportunity to sleep, rest or relax. For children who don't need to rest, there are planned experiences, which are more likely to be outdoors.
Children come together for afternoon tea in small groups or with siblings (they can also rest and play together, too). This time also presents an opportunity to reflect on the day.
End of the day
As families arrive to pick up children, there's an opportunity to speak to Educators and share information about the day.
End of the day
Some centres offer early tea or light snack at the end of the day, which they can grab as they leave the centre. We’re mindful of how routines vary at home, so if throughout the day, we notice children look tired, food will be provided.
Open 7:00am to 6:30pm
