Guardian Childcare & Education Caulfield North

The light-filled state-of-the-art Centre boasts a range of exciting, resource-rich environments including four spacious yards, herb gardens, sandpits, shady trees, natural play structures, and a range of age-specific play areas.

Educators at Caulfield North also run French lessons, yoga classes, weekly family breakfasts, and an interactive indoor/outdoor program for the children to enjoy. Among these programs are some exciting projects, including harvesting vegetables in the toddler room, watching eggs hatch and caring for chicks in the kinder room and eating up a (healthy) storm with the Centre’s onsite chef. Read more on our blog about all the activities available to children at Guardian Caulfield North.

At Guardian Caulfield North 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.

Our on-site chef prepares five nutritionally balanced meals using seasonal ingredients every day. To further explore food at the Centre, Educators host regular hands-on cooking experiences for the children to extend on their knowledge of nutrition and to encourage them to try new foods.

At Guardian Caulfield North we’re confident our unique approach to combining education, play and care will be the difference you’re looking for. Book a tour or contact our team today.

More about Guardian Caulfield North

Guardian Caulfield North is a wonderful childcare Centre in Melbourne offering high quality programs for children from six weeks to six years of age. Our Centre in Caulfield North creates a warm and friendly environment that enhances early learning for babies and children. Our Centre is: 

  • Purpose built with a focus on sustainability 
  • Engaging outdoor play spaces perfect for exploration and discovery 
  • Bright, resource filled interiors to challenge and inspire 
  • Nutritious meals created by our on-site cook 
  • Exciting educational programs from yoga to cooking classes. 

At Guardian Caulfield North we know that children learn through exploration and stimulating experiences. Our play-based programs are designed to foster children’s learning and development in a fun and positive way.  

In addition to high quality care and education, at Guardian Caulfield North we also provide: 

  • Kindergarten Program: We help prepare your child for Primary School with our leading curriculum delivered by Teachers with specialist early childhood university degrees. The Guardian ‘Moving on Up to School’ Kindergarten Program is our contemporary approach that gives your child the full benefits of a structured daily learning program while you are supported with the longer care hours we provide. That means your child gets the best start to their schooling, while you’re able to better juggle the day-to-day thanks to longer care hours than those provided by community-based programs. 
  • Partnership with Families: Your peace of mind is important to us, so we work with you and your child every step of the way. 
  • Community connections. Regular excursions to explore the local area, as well as a ‘home-away-from-home’ approach to care. 
  • Wellbeing and nutrition. Educating children about the importance of healthy eating and wellbeing is an important part of early childhood development. As in the home, our kitchens are often the heart of our Centres – acting as a meeting place for children, families and Educators. Where adults role-model a healthy love of food and shared mealtimes. Nutritionally balanced, seasonal meals and snacks prepared by a dedicated on-site chef, as well as regular cooking classes for the children.  
  • Real-world inspired environments. Our Centres inspire curiosity, foster creativity and support discovery with a variety of sensory-rich and sustainable spaces designed for early learning that encourage your child to think, question and do amazing things.  
  • Designated drop off and pick up zones to assist with those busy mornings and afternoons. 
  • Casual care days where possible to help you manage the unpredictable nature of work life and home life.   
  • Assisting you with government subsidies and entitlements to help you make the most of the financial support which may be available 
  • Our family communication app StoryPark to keep you informed throughout the day with photos, videos and updates about your child  
  • We hold parent and educator sessions to keep you informed of your child’s individual progress.  

If you’re thinking of enrolling at Guardian Caulfield North, we’d encourage you to book a tour today. During your tour you will have the opportunity to meet our Centre Manager, Educators and have a really good look around the Centre while the team answer any questions you may have.
