Meet our Centre Manager
I have had am opportunity to join our service from the beginning and I’m passionate about making sure each and every child feels included, supported and our delivery of education meets a holistic approach for each child.
Rhythm of The Day
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 for conversation to share what's important for the day/what's happened the night before at home.
Breakfast time where families are welcome to stay and enjoy breakfast with the children.
As children are arriving and families are coming and going, there's an opportunity for play as well as family grouping, open-plan play and multi-age grouping.
As the children come together, planned experiences begin. This is where the Guardian programs and practices come to life. Examples of learning include numeracy, literacy, language, critical thinking, problem solving, leadership, social skills, technology, science, creative arts, curiosity and more.
There's an opportunity for children to come together and enjoy morning tea.
Following morning tea, the planned experiences continue. This includes both indoor and outdoor programs.
There's an opportunity for children to come together for lunch. With an open-door policy, families are able to join the centre for meals and excursion if they wish.
For children who want to, or need to, there's an opportunity to sleep, rest or relax. For children who don't need to rest, there are planned experiences, which are more likely to be outdoors.
Children come together for afternoon tea in small groups or with siblings (they can also rest and play together, too). This time also presents an opportunity to reflect on the day.
End of the day
As families arrive to pick up children, there's an opportunity to speak to Educators and share information about the day.
End of the day
Some centres offer early tea or light snack at the end of the day, which they can grab as they leave the centre. We’re mindful of how routines vary at home, so if throughout the day, we notice children look tired, food will be provided.
Open 6:30am to 6:30pm
Monday to Friday

A beautiful purpose built centre with yoga studio and children's cooking classes like MasterChef! But the best part is the staff, always communicating really well and always in the same rooms so you get to know them and my children really love them. Their events are really sweet and we always get good pictures of the kids playing. We moved my elder daughter over form her old daycare because my younger was settled in, first time in care, within a week (3 days).

This is an awesome childcare and we are very happy that our child is attending this centre. The educators takes great care to our child and we can see her development under their care. It is just difficult to get a slot, but when you do, it would all be worth the wait. ☺️
My little bub started when he was 7 month old and I was really worried as a new mum but the educators were so supportive, caring and always there to answer my questions and settle my concerns. Now he is 20 months old, knows all his educators by their names and looks forward going to the centre everyday. The educators has been amazing with all the transitions and always attentive of my boy's learning and development stages. He is growing and learning everyday. I cannot thank them enough for everything they have done. Highly recommend if you are looking for a safe and wonderful place for your little one ❤️
Lovely people are working here😍🥰
my little brother attends and he's learning so much, the staff are very well and truly respectful to everyone

My baby girl joined the Truganina Early learning Centre full-time when she was just 4 months old. I was really concerned and literally cried my eyes out for first couple of days. But, it was really surprising to see my girl transitioning into the day-care routine so easily, credit goes to all the educators at the centre. She is now 7.5 months old and loves going there. All the educators and managers have happy faces and are open to conversation whenever required. As a mother, I always have few concerns which are acknowledged and taken care of on time. Happy and content to see my baby enjoying and learning new things everyday. Highly recommended if you are looking for a safe and happy environment for your baby.
I feel at ease sending my daughter here and even though we’ve moved houses, she will continue at Truganina Early Learning Centre until she moves on to Primary school.
our little one started last month and we've been very happy with her care and growth. The educators are warm and attentive and the management is excellent. Amazing place for our children to grow and learn.
Friendly staff, my little one was extremely upset but in couple of weeks I started seeing his happy face on the app. Staff helps a lot to settle him down. They upload photos on the app and it’s great to see it. Not only this they asked me my kid’s routine and eating habits to build relationship with the kid. Great place to start

I had some worries before we sent our kid to their centre; but when we had our orientation, they were able to tour us with their facilities, showed us some of their portfolios on handling kids and what will be their activities for kids. My kid is safe and learned new things whenever she gets home.

Great staff; from centre management through to the chef. My son loves going here. I’m certain he’s always being well looked after and learning more and more every day. I definitely highly recommend this centre to any parents I speak with and feel that the staff goes above and beyond to build a rapport and bond with the kids to make them as comfortable as possible. Making for not only a great learning environment but a great social one too.
I am very much satisfied with the service provided by TRUGANINA childcare. The best part is their super amazing and friendly educators. They make sure the kid is fed and looked after well. Thank you TRUGANINA team.
Where do I start!! Truganina Early Learning Centre (TELC) is simply the BEST childcare in Truganina. My 32 month old daughter has been experiencing separation anxiety since few months and could not cope in the previous childcare. During the process of choosing another childcare, we were very lucky to speak to Rebecca and Donna from TELC, who have been very positive from Day 1 that they have strategies in place to help my daughter and our family. This is only the third week and my daughter has gained her confidence back and does not stop talking about her friends and educators. The managers/educators are highly experienced and promote a sense of belonging, nurturing, social interaction that fosters self-confidence, trust and creativity. My daughter is always greeted with smiles, hugs and lots of love from everyone as soon as she enters TELC. As parents, we cannot ask for more. One thing that also stands out in TELC is that the Managers are very hands-on and greatly involved with the children. TELC absolutely ticks all the boxes of a great childcare centre and I would recommend this place with no hesitation to any parent. Big thank you to all amazing educators in TELC.
One of the best child care center in Western Melbourne Region, Very friendly and highly experienced staff, dedicated to their job , loving , caring and professional, safety and hygiene comes first in the center and my daughter loves being at her second home.
This daycare centre is A+ with everything, from the care of your children with the staff to the presentation cleanliness, and overall warm and comforting feeling the moment you step through the doors. If you are looking at moving your child or even starting of your child this would be the place.

Great service, Educators show so much care with the children. Very happy with the service they provide. The centre is big, spacious and clean, very inviting the way they have set out each room.
This is the best childcare in Truganina. Staffs are very professional and caring.
It has been nearly a year since we moved to Truganina Early Learning Centre and we couldn’t be happier. The staff are lovely and caring and always greet my daughter and I by name with genuine enthusiasm. My daughter comes home happy and loves telling us about all her learning experiences. I have absolutely no hesitation sending her to TELC or recommending it to others. We drive past at least 15 other centres just to attend this wonderful centre who care for the whole family and even help with yummy take home dinners. Communication is great and prompt as well. Highly recommended.
Being first time parents leaving your child, with essentially people you don't know was hard! But every single step of the way they made it so easy and effortless to leave our baby girl. We didn't need to look at any others as the first day we did a tour we knew that our daughter was going to be well cared for and safe! We receive photos through the day and a little report at the end of the day just to let us know how her day was. My daughter is only 19 months old and doesnt speak yet but i know she loves it here. She is always coming home smiling and extremely playful like she is trying to tell us how much she loves it! And she always give a wave and a kiss good bye. What more can you ask for really? It's a no brainer. No need to look at another daycare juat enrol here. I promise you will not regret it.
I have 2 boys (4 and 1) who attend here and they love it always come home happy and tired. They're comfortable with the educators and so am I
As a first-time parent putting our child in care was a huge decision. We looked at a number of centres and could not go passed Truganina Early Learning Centre.I felt very comfortable with all the staff from the start. It’s been the right decision for us, my toddler enjoys his time at Truganina Early Learning Centre, especially the huge play area and extracurricular activities “We have been extremely happy with the care, and highly recommend them to anyone looking for a warm, friendly and genuinely caring environment for their kids. The communication is great, with regular updates on the kids’ daily activities including photos and posts about their development and interests. Educators know every child’s name and give them warm and big smiles. Most importantly they know my child very well . I feel very comfortable leaving my baby at Truganina Early Learning Centre and know he is receiving the best education and care possible.I want to thank all the fantastic team. I can’t believe the change I have seen in my little boy he comes home so happy and content and I can’t thank you enough to all the team. Day care has been the best thing for my son. He is so happy to attend the centre and the staff are always looking after his needs I would just like to thank all of the staff for the wonderful environment and care they provide. My baby is settled in and loving his time there. I'm a very happy mum as I return back to work!

Such a great Child Care service! Staffs are always so on to it once I drop my kids off; to me that shows how much they care to look after these kids not only that, teaching them new things everyday also shows as my kids have learnt so much since they started this service! Both staffs and director do an awesome job with keeping parents up to date on what’s been happening in the service each day! I love the communication they have and how fast they can respond to anything you need help with. I highly recommend this service in Truganina.
04:15 27 May 20
I could not fault this centre! The care my child has received since being here has been AMAZING. The educators & director actually care for all of the children and it shows in everything they do. They’re constantly trying new things wherever they can and ensuring the children have many different activists available. My child’s learning and overall development has increased dramatically since we moved from a previous centre. We absolutely love everyone here and couldn’t be more thankful we found this place!
Love this centre. Best staff around. Professional service that make all the families feel special and cared for. Always have new and exciting learning experiences for the children making every day fun.
Best child care centre in Truganina and Tarneit. Friendly and care taking staff. Highly recommended.
Excellent service and good staff
Best Childcare Centre in Truganina, happiest my son has ever been since joining Truganina Early Learning Centre. Staff and management are amazing!!!
A beautiful, exceptionally clean centre with passionate staff. My son settled in right away and loves it. Highly recommend.
We can not recommend Truganina Early Learning Centre enough. We have viewed a numbered other centres in the area and TELC felt like home. Putting your child into care for the first time is extremely stressful however the staff made the transition so easy. The staff are extremely welcoming taking into account our needs and the needs of our son. Our Son loves going to "Little School" and adores his educators. We love knowing that our son is being taken care of in a caring and loving environment. Thank you to the wonderful team at Truganina Early Learning Centre.
This centre is so professional. The staff and the management is amazing. My son gets treated with the most respect and is always looking forward to being able to go and have a good time.This centre is like walking into a whole big family. Always get greeted with smiles and my son just can’t wait to jump out of my arms to start enjoying his day.I know he is being treated and looked after well and I don’t have to worry or stress. I would recommend this centre to anyone who is looking for a family based and professional centre. Can always guarantee that the food is going to be yummy and nutritious. Best management team and so helpful! Great job Truganina Early Learning Centre,
Went for an open day recently and the staff were so helpful with all the questions. So convenient being so close to the station also.

Best I’ve seen in the area! High quality service & amazing educators!
My daughter started at the service on their first day and I could not be happier. There are centre's on every corner but the most important things to me are the relationships with the educators the approachable management and that my daughter learns and is happy and excited. Congratulations to the team on providing a great environment, high quality resourses and a caring and loving environment. The use of daily reporting to families and the physical information about your child in an app is a great feature. If you are looking for a service, don't commit until you have been to TELC.

This centre is amazing, the staff are so professional & caring. When you walk in the front doors you feel welcomed straight away, they have thought of everything from children being involved in much as possible to having a family room where new parents have the chance to have a coffee or tea and chill while there little one does orientation. I highly recommend this childcare centre!!

My daughter took 2 months to get used to the previous centre, but she took only a week to do so in this one. Big thanks to her educators (shout out to Fadia, TJ, Karen) and the casual educators as well for their service. The managers of the centre are also very responsive and accommodating, which we greatly appreciate in these hard times.
Friendly staff, good location and lot of activities!
All Educators who deal with my son are fantastic
