Every day is an opportunity for discovery and growth at Guardian Childcare & Education Blackburn North, which is rated exceeding in the National Quality Standard. With a range of exciting, resource-rich environments – including two spacious outdoor spaces – children are encouraged to explore and learn.

The light-filled and homely centre also has a secret garden, vegetable patches, native trees, cubby houses, a tree swing, and a range of age-specific ateliers.

We are proud to have a culturally diverse team and celebrate a variety of cultures and holidays throughout the year.

Children get out and about on excursions, so we have a great connection with the surrounding community. We often visit Cootamundra Park to spot birds, collect rubbish and play under the trees, in addition to visiting the dentist and post office to deliver letters to overseas pen pals.

Our on-site cooks prepare five nutritionally balanced meals using seasonal ingredients every day. The children and Educators often collect herbs and vegetables from the gardens to add to the daily meals and use in cooking classes.

Both my children attend Guardian Blackburn North and I would highly recommend this centre. My children have attended since they were 10 months old and now are in the Kinder room. The care and professionalism of the educators is second to none and with out a doubt they have been a major part in shaping my children into the kind, empathetic, resilient and happy kids they are today. Through out what has been a very difficult year the educators at Blackburn North have been the one constant sense of normality for my children and they are greeted on every attendance with warm smiles and excitement from teachers. I can not thank the amazing team at Blackburn North enough for their dedication and love for what they do!
My daughter has been attending Blackburn Early Learning Centre since she was 1 year old. I am very happy with the services they offer, they do not just care for the children but they educate by example and they are always making new projects and activities to keep their minds busy. Manager and her team always do all they can to help with every concern. My daughter feels safe and happy since day 1, and I feel she is in good hands when i leave her there.
