Guardian Early Learning – Richmond

Every day is a new opportunity for discovery and growth at Guardian Early Learning – Richmond. With a range of resource-rich environments, including two spacious outdoor areas, an art atelier, yoga program, and alfresco dining, children are encouraged to explore and learn.

The light-filled centre also features a light atelier, tinker yard, herb and vegetable gardens, and a range of age-specific ateliers where our exciting programs come to life.

As the centre shares a building with the Victoria Guardian Head Office, our team has access to brilliant training programs, and a shared cafe – including a well-loved barista – that we utilise for family breakfast each morning.

We are proud to have a diverse team of Educators and celebrate a variety of cultures and holidays, as well as organising our Urban Atelier program for the kindergarten children to connect with our local community.

Our on-site chef prepares five nutritionally balanced meals using seasonal ingredients every day. The children and Educators often collect vegetables from the garden to add to the daily meals and use in cooking classes, and enjoy lunch in the cafe once a week.
