At Guardian Braybrook children will have the opportunity to get out and about on regular excursions, so we will have a great connection with the local community. And with a diverse and community-minded team of Educators, we are proud to be able to celebrate a variety of cultures and holidays throughout the year. These celebrations will also provide the opportunity to teach children about diversity and the world around them.

Guardian Braybrook will have an on-site chef preparing five nutritionally balanced meals using seasonal ingredients every day. To further explore food at Guardian Braybrook, our Educators will host hands-on cooking classes where the children can get involved and enhance their understanding of good nutrition.
