Guardian Childcare & Education Montmorency

Guardian Childcare & Education Montmorency is a beautiful early learning Centre, catering for children from six weeks to six years of age. The sprawling Centre features plenty of indoor and outdoor spaces for the children to explore and learn, including vegetable and herb gardens, natural play structures and a range of age-specific play areas.

Located 18km from the Melbourne CBD, Guardian Montmorency is a convenient choice for families seeking high-quality care close to home, or on the way to the city for work. It is also a great choice for families living in bordering suburbs, including Eltham, Briar Hill, Greensborough, Lower Plenty and Viewbank.

The team of professionally-certified early childhood Educators and Teachers deliver an advanced play-based and nature-inspired curriculum, as well as a leading Kindergarten Program to help prepare your child for the exciting transition to school.

Centre Manager at Guardian Montmorency, Kahli Edwards, is a huge advocate for early learning and nurturing the unique abilities and personalities of each and every child in her care.
“Throughout my career I have learnt that no two children are the same. We all learn, cope, and deal with things differently. With that in mind, my approach has been to nurture each individual child and their needs by offering guidance, support, and patience.”

Guardian Montmorency has a dedicated on-site cook who prepares five nutritionally balanced meals using seasonal ingredients every day. Children are fortunate to enjoy their meals in the dedicated piazza where they dine with their friends and Educators.

With a community-minded team of Educators who have been with the Centre for a long time, we are proud of our culturally diverse team and celebrate a variety of holidays throughout the year, including Diwali and Chinese New Year.
