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.

More about Guardian Montmorency

If you’re looking for a child care centre in Greensborough then take a tour of Guardian Montmorency and discover why so many parents rate us 5 stars. Located 18km from the Melbourne CBD, Guardian Montmorency is a convenient choice for families seeking high-quality care close to home. 

With our focus on creating a fun, innovative environment for your child’s education and deepening his or her connection to the local communities you’ll discover why meeting our staff and learning about how we do things differently is worthwhile. 

Many of our Educators have been with the centre for many years, and have forged strong bonds with local families. We love seeing the children grow and develop during their time with us, and then welcoming their siblings when it’s their turn to attend the centre. It’s this consistency and family focus that has earned us the trust of our community. 

Guardian Childcare & Education Montmorency provides long care hours for families, making juggling those daily commitments a little easier. Long daycare centres provide care and education programs for children (usually aged from six weeks to six years). This is before a child starts formal schooling. These centres provide full day care from early morning to early evening, and provide up to 5-days a week care. Families can opt to send their child or only one day, or for the full five-day week – or anything in between. Bookings are usually on a permanent basis, although some providers give the options of casual bookings when needed. 

Working families are those who use this type of care most, and the centres provide close to everything required during the day for your child – as part of their daily fee. This can include all or some of the following: nappies, formula, meals, bedding, water bottles, hats and sun cream. The centres are usually arranged according to age group – with rooms dedicated to babies, toddlers and preschool-aged children. 

Book and take a tour at Guardian Montmorency today and find out why our care for children is rated among the top several child care centres in the state. 

You are welcome to speak to our educators at any time during the tour for further context on why we arrange our rooms the way we do. There is real science behind it and it’s quite fascinating when you consider the layout and resourcing from the eyes of the child and their developmental stage. 

The environment plays a huge factor in learning outcomes for children, so we pride ourselves on helping children and families feel welcome and able to build a sense of belonging, which supports our teaching.   

Our professionally qualified and caring Educators ensure our children are safe, respected and stimulated in high quality and naturally-inspired environments. Our centre follows a unique play-based learning approach that focuses on developing children’s natural skills, initiative and curiosity to inspire confidence and happiness, and to prepare them for success in life-long learning. 

Guardian Childcare & Education Montmorency is an early learning centre that services a number of local areas, including: Eltham, Doncaster, Templestowe, Greensborough, Heidelberg and Preston.
