"My approach is to nurture each child and their needs by offering guidance, support and patience."
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.

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 to share what’s important for the day and any news from home.
Breakfast time where families are welcome to stay and enjoy breakfast with the children.
An opportunity to play and discover with open-plan play in family groups and multi-age groupings.
Planned experiences. This is where the Guardian difference comes to life. Alongside our Educators your child’s exploration leads to learnings in numeracy, literacy, language, critical thinking, problem solving, leadership, social skills, technology, creative arts and much more.
An opportunity for children to come together for a healthy snack, often they help prepare their food alongside our carers and chef.
Individually tailored to your child’s needs and curiosity the planned experiences continue, this includes both indoor and outdoor programs.
Another nutritious meal expertly prepared by our chef. Families are invited to join the children for meals and excursions if they wish.
If your child wants to, or needs to sleep, it’s time to rest and recharge. For children who don’t need to rest the planned experiences continue, in most cases outdoors.
Another chance for the children to come together and re-fuel in small groups. There is also an opportunity to rest or play together and reflect on the day.
As you arrive to pick up your child, there’s a chance to speak with our Educators and share news about the day. Our Storypark App also allows you to stay in touch 24/7 wherever you are.

“It’s not easy to leave your child in the care of someone else, however, from day one I can comfortably say that your staff have always provided the best care for both my children. I always see all the great things they do with the children but most importantly they are always there to comfort the children and take such great care of them.”
– Ivana Dusenjko, Mickleham Road, Vic
"The transition into childcare was made easy by the supportive and compassionate staff. Daily communication (both email and verbal) kept me up to date with my daughter's progress socially, emotionally and intellectually. The 'child centred' approach is amazing; for my child to make connections to her own world and experiences. She loves going.”
– Sarah Collingwood, Jacaranda – Sunnybank, Qld
"“The team are passionate about being early childhood Educators. The environment is filled with many indoor and outdoor activities allowing a child-led development by following their natural interests (inspired by Reggio Emilia). A philosophy we follow in our home. My four-year-old daughter’s language and social skills have improved greatly.””
– Angela K, Lane Cove, NSW
