Kind and caring centre that is working with a little one that has severe separation anxiety. This centre has tried everything to make the transition smooth for both mum and toddler.

Nothing but good things to say and would happily recommend to anyone. Our now one year old has been at guardian Montmorency now for 4 months and they’ve all been great. Gemma and Cloe are the two regular staff in Nursery one, the communication, warmth and care is exactly what we where after when touring faculties.

Amazing service and the best staff! I know, as I have been there for nearly 10 years with my 4 children. Over the years it has only become better and better thanks to Kahli, Monique and staff. I would 100% recommend Guardian Montmorency and do, to all my friends for childacare and Kinder! Their kinder program with Donna as Team Leader is just as good as any other! They have also had renovations which makes the centre nice to be in and best of all, my kids love it there. Thank you!

Our little one has been attending Guardian Monty since she was 10 months old - she is now 4.5The staff identified when it was time to move our daughter up to the next room, even before her 'age' meant she was to move. They have been attentive to our individual requirements and all of the educators have been wonderful. Not once have we walked in and been concerned.Due to Covid stay home rules - our little one is crying as she misses her educators! I know it will be sad when we start school next year!

Our team of Educators are committed and passionate about ensuring your child will be safe, nurtured and cared for every day. At Guardian, children are encouraged to engage in interest-led play that creates learning and meaningful experiences.

Our Educators seek to optimise diverse learning opportunities and implement the Curriculum as framed by the Early Years Learning Framework.

Learn More About Our Centre

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 care up to 5 days a week. Families can opt to send their child for only one day, or the full five-day week – or anything in between. Bookings are usually permanent, although some providers give the option 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.

For children aged three and four, we have a kindergarten program led by university-qualified Teachers that can support your child in their preparation for the step up into primary school. Our kindergarten curriculum has the Victorian Government Kinder Tick, which demonstrates our commitment to providing the best possible start to life for your child. Our program is led by specialist Educational Leaders who guide teaching and learning in a flexible and research-supported way.

Through our kindergarten program, children have the opportunity to learn some of the skills that are often only introduced in early primary school. We begin learning and exploring shapes, numbers and letters through fun, play-based activities.

We’re committed to children’s nutrition, and our on-site cook prepares each meal fresh and packed with all the nutrients that children need at their age. We encourage children to engage in food preparation and to ask questions about where their food comes from, why it’s good for them, and how they can eat it. We also encourage exploration of the cultural heritage behind different foods, helping promote diversity and inclusion from an early age.

We develop each child’s literacy and numeracy skills to help them feel confident and prepared during the challenging leap into primary school. Our program supports the needs and routines of each of our families, and we ensure each child’s cultural background is supported and encouraged.

As part of our unique Visible Learning Program, families will be able to gain an understanding of their child’s education. Our Learning Exchange Display will provide the opportunity for our Teachers and Educators to share updates on your child’s progress. It will also be a chance for you to have direct input into your child’s learning!

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.
