Guardian Childcare & Education Tullamarine

(Formerly Mickleham Road)

Guardian Childcare & Education Tullamarine (formerly Mickleham Road) is bursting with exciting and resource-rich environments – including three spacious outdoor yards. The Centre features pergola areas, shady trees, vegetable gardens, natural climbing structures, an art room and a range of age-specific studios and workshops.

The Teachers and Educators at Guardian Tullamarine provide wonderful learning programs for children, including a leading Kindergarten Program that also provides all the benefits of long daycare to parents and carers.

Connections to the local community are important at Guardian Tullamarine, so the Centre offers excursions to the zoo, farm, local library and our nearby park. The team and children also take part in community fundraising activities by holding regular cupcake stalls which the children are actively involved with.

Our on-site cook Kevin is also a popular asset to the Centre, preparing nutritionally balanced meals and snacks every day, using seasonal ingredients. The children enjoy these meals at our family dining area and are invited to eat breakfast on arrival each day with their siblings and friends. The children and Educators at Guardian Tullamarine often collect herbs and vegetables from their very own veggie patch to add to their daily meals and to use in cooking classes. Every Friday Kevin hosts a hands-on cooking class with children which goes through different recipes, cooking skills, hygiene and discussions on where food comes from.
