Guardian Childcare & Education Point Cook North

(Formerly Play & Learn)

Guardian Childcare & Education Point Cook North (formerly Play & Learn) is located a short drive from Hoppers Crossing, Truganina, Werribee and Seabrook, and is a great option for local families wanting high-quality childcare close to home or on the way to the CBD for work.

The light-filled Centre boasts a range of exciting, resource-rich environments including a creek bed, purpose-built hills and tunnels, water play areas, vegetable gardens, natural climbing structures, and a range of age-specific studios and spaces.

At Guardian Point Cook North children are encouraged to explore and learn, with the added benefit of a Kindergarten Program led by quality teachers who are there to help prepare your child for the exciting transition to school. Our location across from the local primary school also has the added benefit of our children having existing friendships when they make the move to primary school.

Children get out and about on weekly excursions, visiting locations such as parks, our local aged care facility, the local primary school, and the café for babyccinos! Plus, our on-site cook prepares five nutritionally balanced meals every day, with the children and Educators often collecting vegetables from the garden to add to their meals and to use in cooking classes.

Begin the adventure at Guardian Point Cook North today by booking a tour to explore the Centre or speaking to one of our friendly team.

Learn More About Our Centre

At Guardian Childcare & Education Point Cook North your child will be nurtured and cared for by our team of Educators who will support your child as they learn and grow. Through a range of fun-filled learning experiences, we ensure your child is developing skills that will set them up for a lifelong love of learning. 

Community is a big part of daily life at our centre. We offer exciting experiences for all age groups including excursions to the local school, park, café and aged care facility. Even our youngest community members can take part in these excursions through the use of our eight-seater pram. Our regular visits from our local vet are always a highlight for both the children and Educators! 

Our newly renovated outdoor yards are a wonderful feature of our centre where children are free to play and discover. Children are able to explore sustainability concepts through caring for the gardens, spend time constructing in our sandpits and take appropriate risks through running, jumping and playing in our open spaces. 

We cater our services at the centre to make life easier for our busy families. We provide nutritionally balanced meals prepared by our own chef in our centre kitchen and provide necessities such as nappies, sunscreen and bedding for nap times. 

Whether your child is six weeks or six years old, our Teachers and Educators are always observing – working to understand your child’s individual traits, likes and motivations. This means they’re better able to find what lights up each child’s curiosity and enthusiasm for learning. Plus, Our Preschool and Kindergarten Programs are designed and led by teachers with specialist early childhood university degrees – all with all the benefits of long day care flexibility for families. 

We want to better understand your child to deliver them the best early learning experience possible. So we connect with families in person and through our StoryPark app, so you can enjoy the learning journey alongside your child. StoryPark enables the centre to provide real time updates to families, which is important for you but also supports open communication between the educators and the families. The focus is on providing children with plenty of opportunities and set them up for a lifelong love of learning. You’ll be kept up to date on our unique Visible Learning Program, which gives you a great understanding of your child’s learning for the day at pick up. It will give you plenty to talk about with them on the drive home! 

Our routines are flexible, and programs are based on the children’s personal interests. Each child is encouraged to contribute their ideas about what to learn. We offer a variety of incursions and excursions throughout the year, all of which are included in your child’s fees. We love seeing the children grow and develop during their time with us, and then welcoming their siblings when it’s their turn to attend the centre. It’s this consistency and family focus that has earned us the trust of our community. 

Guardian Childcare & Education Point Cook North is an early learning centre that services a number of local areas, including: Werribee, Altona, Altona North and Hoppers Crossing.
