Guardian Childcare & Education Camberwell

(Formerly Tiggers)

Guardian Childcare & Education Camberwell is rated as exceeding in the National Quality Standard. With a range of exciting, resource-rich environments including yoga experiences, a pergola, a water play area, and natural play structures, children are encouraged to explore and learn.

The light-filled Centre is split between two 1930s houses, and features high ceilings, native trees, a spacious outdoor area, and a range of age-specific studios and spaces.

The first five years of your child’s life are incredibly important when it comes to social and emotional development, and setting them up with a love of learning that lasts a lifetime. That’s why, at Guardian Camberwell, we’re focused on teaching children how to learn versus just ticking a box. This approach to education comes to life in our Kindergarten Program, which is led by qualified teachers who are there to help prepare your child for the exciting transition to school.

At Guardian Camberwell we’re proud to have a culturally diverse team, with a number of our Educators fluent in Mandarin. We celebrate a variety of cultures and holidays throughout the year, which offers the children an insight into diversity and the world around them.

Children also get out and about on regular excursions into the local community. We have a beautiful park and a library within walking distance from the Centre, so all age groups are able to join in.

Our on-site cook, Chris, prepares five nutritionally balanced meals using seasonal ingredients every day. Having been with the Centre for over 12 years, Chris puts his heart and soul into every meal, and the children love chatting with him and participating in hands-on cooking classes.
