Learn More About Our Centre

Custom designed to enhance learning, the architecturally designed space references the history of the area and the building’s former service as an Australia Post distribution centre. Features include:

  • Spacious outdoor play areas with shade, sand-pits and play-structures
  • A kitchen garden where children will grow and harvest veggies and herbs
  • An art-studio located in a shipping container which will offer pottery, arts and crafts, fostering a love of creative expression
  • A piazza where children can interact with the kitchen and socialise whilst sharing meals
  • Huge windows that allow children to look out onto Hoddle Street and beyond

As well as giving our children a world-class early learning experience, this unique space will also feature a materials centre known as The Exchange which will be the heart of The Guardian Education Project, providing resources and training to Guardian educators from all over Australia.

Guardian is thrilled to announce that The Exchange will soon showcase the ‘Hundred Languages of Children’ Exhibition, an iconic display that beautifully illustrates the learning potential of children and foundation for Guardian’s Curriculum.

Meet our Centre Manager

Hello, I’m Melinda and I have been part of the Guardian family for many years having worked as an Operations Manager and previously a Centre Manager for two Guardian centres. Whilst working with Guardian, I am furthering my education by studying a Bachelor of Teaching at the Macquarie University, specialising in birth to five years.

I believe a key to successfully managing an early learning centre is through relationships. It is the educators and staff we work alongside that creates a beautiful and engaging environment for children. This transcends through the interactions we not only have with each other, but also with the children and families who become part of our service. I have been with Richmond from when the centre was under construction and I remember my first visit it was a shell with no walls. It has been wonderful seeing the transformation to where it is today and I can only imagine what will come next.
