Welcome to our Centre

Welcome to Guardian Childcare and Education Wodonga West, formerly Bumble Bees Childcare Centre. 

Our purpose-built childcare centre in West Wodonga is located on Melbourne Road and offers quality care and education for children aged 6 weeks – 6 years. Our Centre team provides each child with a warm, safe, secure environment where they can grow and develop. 

Engaging, play-based learning programs support children’s curiosity through hands-on fun. At our West Wodonga child care, children are given opportunities to engage their natural curiosity.  

Our Centre has five beautiful learning spaces, grouped by age. Each room is full of high quality educational resources for the best play-based learning experiences. Every child is supported in their growth and development, encouraging a lifelong love of learning. 

Children attending our West Wodonga child care centre have access to: 

  • Leading educational programs such as Joy of Reading, Cooking, Out & About Community Excursions, Sustainability and more. 
  • Fresh, nutritious meals and snacks with the best seasonal ingredients, prepared on-site 
  • Baby nappies, wipes, linen, sunscreen all included 
  • Experienced Educators and degree-qualified Teachers who focus on building strong relationships with families 

Our team is passionate about providing the highest levels of education and care. Each educator at our West Wodonga early learning centre considers each child’s abilities, interests, cultural diversity and family circumstances when planning and implementing learning experiences.  

Our high-quality Kindergarten program has a strong focus on social and emotional development. We support children to develop the skills needed to become confident, engaged learners as they move up to school.  

The Victorian Government offers funding to provide families up to 15 hours of Free Kindergarten a week, in addition to the Childcare Subsidy. This funding offsets the fees for three and four-year-old children that are part of the Centre’s long day care Kindergarten program. Families will save up to $2,050 a year for children aged three years old and above in eligible long day cares in 2024. Ask us for more information when you visit our Centre.  

We value the important relationships we build with families. Our goal is to work with our families to create a Centre with a strong community focus.

Learn more about Guardian Wodonga West

Guardian Childcare & Education Wodonga West is located on Melbourne Road and has a welcoming, ‘home away from home’ environment for families in West Wodonga and the surrounding areas.  

We’re passionate about creating a safe and stimulating environment for children to explore and grow. Our dedicated team of university-qualified Teachers and Educators will work together with you to create the best learning experiences possible for your child. 

At Guardian Childcare & Education Wodonga West we strive to provide the highest quality of education and care for your children. Our innovative teaching methods are designed to help our young learners develop their skills in a safe, fun and stimulating environment. We believe that early years learning should be creative and fun. 

Our Educators and Teachers are warm and welcoming and are experienced in providing children with a safe, secure environment to grow and develop freely in their first few years. Our Centre features multiple spacious rooms filled with beautiful colours and natural lights. There are plenty of fun and stimulating materials around the Centre to keep the children engaged and to inspire them to explore their childcare environment. 

We provide all fresh and nutritious meals and snacks each day to ensure each child has the opportunity to develop positive healthy eating habits. Our Educators empower each child to become active in the food preparation process, and many of the children help select ingredients, ask our Cook questions and learn about the various nutrients in each meal. 

Our approach to early childhood education at Guardian Childcare & Education Wodonga West means your family has access to a high-quality education in a safe environment close to home. We’re about building strong relationships with children and families, ensuring we create amazing learning experiences for each child and age group. 

We are committed to best practices in our Wodonga West child care Centre, ensuring a safe, secure, and inviting environment for babies, toddlers, and kindergarten-aged children in a long day care setting. 

Each learning program is designed by experienced Educators and Teachers to support children in developing social and emotional skills, along with literacy, numeracy and problem-solving ability that prepares them for a life of learning. Our learning programs are aligned with the Early Years Learning Framework, the National Quality Standard, and the Australian School Curriculum. 

For children aged three and four years, we have an amazing kindergarten program that runs with our long day care to help prepare them for their upcoming transitions into formal schooling.  

Our 3-year-old program emphasises developing some of the social and communication skills that the children will use as they gain more independence. We encourage development in these areas through group play and some slightly more structured activities. 

In 4-year-old kindergarten, children further develop their communication, social and emotional skills, and they also begin exploring some numbers, shapes and phonics. We encourage children to practice reading simple sounds and words on their own, and we empower them through the learning process that comes with this. Through developing skills in these areas, children can feel more ready and confident as they begin their first year of primary school. 

Open each weekday from 6.30am to 6pm, Guardian Wodonga West aims to provide children with a wide variety of experiences and learning opportunities, so we offer many different teaching programs throughout the week to help foster growth and development.  

Sustainability is another focus at our Centre, and we empower children to develop an understanding of recycling and other sustainable practices while developing a genuine passion and care for looking after our planet.  

We have a beautiful, spacious outdoor environment for the children to explore and practice engaging their imaginations and creativity. 

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. 

Why not come and meet the team and have a look around our childcare Centre today? We’d love to show you why Guardian Wodonga West is the perfect learning environment for your child. At Guardian, we believe that together, we can create life-long learners. 

We look forward to welcoming you soon!
