The staff are lovely and very supportive. The centre is clean and they provide a large variety of excellent activities and play experiences to grow and extend my son's learning and skills. Communication is excellent and we are invited to participate and can see what is happening via Storypark. My son always comes home happy.

My kids go here to preschool & nursery respectively.The teachers across rooms at this centre care for kids so nicely even when the kids don’t belong to their room. Every teacher knows the name of every child at the childcare which is so nice.Amanda, the centre manager is so switched on when it comes to ideas and so involved and collaborative when it comes to queries/ discussions from/ with parents. She replies to queries within the day.My elder daughter started liking childcare and being independent thanks to teachers like Romi, Mercedes, Angela, Jacki & Nabina. She is a shy child and a tad bit reservedAfter seeing my elder one’s progress I got my younger one enrolled in there as well this yearIt’s a very happy and community oriented childcare and we are happy to be a part of Guardian (Acacia Gardens).

My son has been going there for just over a month now and I couldn’t be more happy with the centre and staff! The staff in the nursery room are super caring, kind and very knowledgeable! The supervisor of the centre Amanda has been so helpful and has made both my son and I feel welcome and at ease with the whole transition of attending the centre! I feel comfortable leaving my son there knowing he will be cared for. Thank you to all the lovely staff at Guardian Acacia Gardens!

The team are fantastic. I like the fact they know all the kids so well and they get to know the families too. I love that you guys do regular events where family members can see what they do, The communication between staff and families is fantastic. The centre is always clean and tidy and looks inviting for the kids. I like the fact that the kids get the opportunity to do messy play and I don't have to clean up afterwards.

As a new mother, one is always apprehensive about sending your baby to any Daycare Centre. My son has not only loved this place, but has thrived into a confident boy. 4 years of his life has been spent in this place, the best way a child should. Now my daughter has followed suit.

This is a wonderful facility where my three children have attended over several years.The facilities are great , clean and fun, the educators are fantastic and well versed in early childhood.All my children love attending the centre, the older two still want to continually visit see the great team.It will be a sad day when we no longer share our children’s milestones with the great caring, fun, enthusiastic, engaging and energetic staff. They provide a lovely safe environment for children of all ages and well deserving of excellency in accreditation.I may just need to have another child to continue such great relationships built over the years.

The team here have been nothing short of amazing. I was worried about my girl settling in, but they were totally responsive and on board.They are happy to adjust and try new things as needed, with baby's preferences constantly growing and changing.They are honest when you speak to them and will give you as much detail as you ask for.Pretty sure she now "runs" the place and has everyone wrapped around her little finger 😂.

The combination of amazing learning environments and experiences, highly dedicated educators, outstanding centre manager and small community feel make this center one that I will forever be grateful for finding.We have been a part of this center for almost 5 years now with 2 children and it just keeps getting better.

The team at Guardian Acacia Gardens are incredible. Always friendly and welcoming, they are caring and engaging with my kids. The Centre is always clean and calm when you walk in. The food is fresh and prepared daily with a menu that makes my mouth water! Communication is spot on, with the Director having found the perfect balance between hounding parents and informing us. My kids come home happy, content and with skills that still stun me (in a great way!) - they are really thriving at Guardian Acacia Gardens.

I have had two children attend this day care from nursery through to preschool. Every staff member has always made us feel at home and part of a family. There is a strong community bond within the centre. Everyone is friendly and accommodating to our families needs. My children have loved day care. The centre is always clean and entertaining. My children have had great care, education and meals while developing at this daycare. I highly recommend this long day care centre.

I have nothing but positive feedback for Guardian Childcare centre. From the moment I walked into this centre I knew it was going to be better than the rest and to date I believe this to be true.Leaving your children with someone you don't know is a really hard decision however, I have grown to know and trust all the educators at Guardian and each and everyone is beyond amazing. They take the time to learn about the likes and dislikes of your child and they care about them like they are their own.I believe the learning curriculum is superior than other centres. My children are always doing fun and interesting actives and they enjoy the time they spend at day-care.Then their is Ms Charmaine that is an amazing cook.

My kids have been going here for the past 4 years and we've just finished in 2020.I just want to say that Playdays (the name I'll always love) is the most caring, fun & welcoming day care you'll ever visit or attend.Every staff member has looked after our kids with such love and care we'd never expected out of total strangers (not strangers anymore).Management (Amanda) is outstanding and you can tell they look after not only the kids but staff members. Sharman (the cook), its fantastic and she's always playing with the kids well loved.All staff members thank you for all the love and attention you've given our kids over the years. Mercedes, Emily, Amanda, Kelly, Elizabeth, Antoinette, Gemma, Lesley, Sunai, Katrina, and hopefully we didn't miss out any names =)

My daughter has attended for the last 4 years (since 8mths old) and my son attended the year previous so we have been part of their family for 5 years.So many things to say about the wonderful educators at Guardian. The education and learning opportunities that the kids are presented with daily is outstanding as well as providing a beautifully clean and tidy environment for them. There is genuine care and love for our kids and all educators make an effort to get to know each of the children at the centre and support them. There is fantastic communication from Amanda and her staff about upcoming events and news to share. They really drive to engage parents into activities they are doing at daycare.We truly appreciate everything Amanda and her team do fostering the minds of our future generation and providing quality care. Makes it easy to feel confident in trusting the care of our child to them.

Guardian Acacia Gardens is an absolutely amazing centre and I am so thankful every day that my children were lucky enough to get a spot there. I have a little girl in the nursery room and a boy in the pre school room. I can’t speak highly enough of how loving, caring and friendly all the educators are. They know my children as well as I do and each time I drop them off I know they’re going to have an amazing day.The facilities and programs are outstanding and my children also love all the food they are provided with each day. It is so professionally run and the communication with families is brilliant 💗.

Since my daughter first started in care at 6 months old in 2014 I have had nothing but wonderful interactions with her educators and she still misses them and asks to go and see them often even though she is in year 1 at school now. My son also began attending at 6 months old and he loved all his educators right away and is now enjoying learning all his skills needed for school in the preschool room. Such a great centre and wonderful dedicated staff who many have been at the centre since my eldest started in the nursery room.

I only heard good things about Guardian Childcare (previously playdays) and was excited and nervous at the same time to enrol my daughter there.My worries and anxiety about daycare for my then 1yo was quickly put to bed, when I met the new centre manager and nursery educators. They genuinely care for the kids and you can see the kids are happy.I don't see any of the kids not wanting to be dropped off.I would highly recommend Guardian Acacia Gardens if you are looking for a safe and nurturing childcare. It is amazing and is exceeding the national standards in all areas.

A fantastic Early learning Centre that both our children have attended over the last 4 years from nursery through to preschool rooms. We were initially drawn to the welcoming home like environment, lovely natured and supportive staff. The program has exceeded our expectations. They provide much more to us than simply a place to mind our children while we work. Our children have grown and thrived under their education and care. They have formed trusting bonds with their educators and valued relationships with their peers. Excellent communication, clean environment, interesting activities and nutritious as well as culturally diverse food on offer. We couldn't have asked for more. Thank you to all the staff at Guardian childcare & Education Acacia Gardens

Guardian Acacia Gardens is a wonderful centre with caring, dedicated staff. Our daughter has attended there over the past 3.5 years and each room from Nursery to Preschool has been a positive and nurturing experience. I couldn't recommend this centre and the wonderful team of educators more!! The rooms are beautiful, fun and clean, and they have a great outdoor play area. We will miss them all very much!

My daughter has been at Guardian Acacia garden for couple of months now,we are so happy and thankful for the management to gave us the opportunity to be the part of this wonderful service. she has already managed to expand on her vocabulary dramatically. The positive influence all staff have on my daughter is just amazing and very impressive as I can now see changes in her attitude regarding sharing with others and simple things like listening and following instructions. Every educator has a very special bond and relationship with my daughter and I would like to thank all staff for nurturing and looking after her as though she was their own. I would like to especially thank all teacher's for making my daughter so comfortable.I recommend this place to all the parents if you are looking for a safe, fun and educational environment for your little ones, then Guardian Acacia garden is exactly the place for that.

This is a brilliant child care service. A supportive and nurturing environment where your children develop both themselves and friendships with their peers. Additional needs for children are met without any hesitation. The educators are remarkably good in their positions, and form lovely bonds with the children. I wouldn't place my children in any other centre.

Over the past 4 years I have been a parent of this centre as I have sent all 3 of my daughters to Play Days Acacia Gardens. Over this time I have had the pleasure of getting to know all of the staff in each room and have received nothing but impeccable care for my children as well as fantastic communication skills displayed to both my husband. The staff at Play days have always been so welcoming, warm and gentle that drop off's have never been issue and my daughters really love going to day care and enjoy their daily activities which have been planned for them. Can't thank all the staff enough for all they have done for our family over the years

I have nothing but positive feedback for Guardian Childcare centre. From the moment I walked into this centre I knew it was going to be better than the rest and to date I believe this to be true.Leaving your children with someone you don't know is a really hard decision however, I have grown to know and trust all the educators at Guardian and each and everyone is beyond amazing. They take the time to learn about the likes and dislikes of your child and they care about them like they are their own.I believe the learning curriculum is superior than other centres. My children are always doing fun and interesting actives and they enjoy the time they spend at day-care.Then their is Ms Charmaine that is an amazing cook.

My kids have been going here for the past 4 years and we've just finished in 2020.I just want to say that Playdays (the name I'll always love) is the most caring, fun & welcoming day care you'll ever visit or attend.Every staff member has looked after our kids with such love and care we'd never expected out of total strangers (not strangers anymore).Management (Amanda) is outstanding and you can tell they look after not only the kids but staff members. Sharman (the cook), its fantastic and she's always playing with the kids well loved.All staff members thank you for all the love and attention you've given our kids over the years. Mercedes, Emily, Amanda, Kelly, Elizabeth, Antoinette, Gemma, Lesley, Sunai, Katrina, and hopefully we didn't miss out any names =)

My daughter has attended for the last 4 years (since 8mths old) and my son attended the year previous so we have been part of their family for 5 years.So many things to say about the wonderful educators at Guardian. The education and learning opportunities that the kids are presented with daily is outstanding as well as providing a beautifully clean and tidy environment for them. There is genuine care and love for our kids and all educators make an effort to get to know each of the children at the centre and support them. There is fantastic communication from Amanda and her staff about upcoming events and news to share. They really drive to engage parents into activities they are doing at daycare.We truly appreciate everything Amanda and her team do fostering the minds of our future generation and providing quality care. Makes it easy to feel confident in trusting the care of our child to them.

Guardian Acacia Gardens is an absolutely amazing centre and I am so thankful every day that my children were lucky enough to get a spot there. I have a little girl in the nursery room and a boy in the pre school room. I can’t speak highly enough of how loving, caring and friendly all the educators are. They know my children as well as I do and each time I drop them off I know they’re going to have an amazing day.The facilities and programs are outstanding and my children also love all the food they are provided with each day. It is so professionally run and the communication with families is brilliant 💗.

Since my daughter first started in care at 6 months old in 2014 I have had nothing but wonderful interactions with her educators and she still misses them and asks to go and see them often even though she is in year 1 at school now. My son also began attending at 6 months old and he loved all his educators right away and is now enjoying learning all his skills needed for school in the preschool room. Such a great centre and wonderful dedicated staff who many have been at the centre since my eldest started in the nursery room.

I only heard good things about Guardian Childcare (previously playdays) and was excited and nervous at the same time to enrol my daughter there.My worries and anxiety about daycare for my then 1yo was quickly put to bed, when I met the new centre manager and nursery educators. They genuinely care for the kids and you can see the kids are happy.I don't see any of the kids not wanting to be dropped off.I would highly recommend Guardian Acacia Gardens if you are looking for a safe and nurturing childcare. It is amazing and is exceeding the national standards in all areas.

A fantastic Early learning Centre that both our children have attended over the last 4 years from nursery through to preschool rooms. We were initially drawn to the welcoming home like environment, lovely natured and supportive staff. The program has exceeded our expectations. They provide much more to us than simply a place to mind our children while we work. Our children have grown and thrived under their education and care. They have formed trusting bonds with their educators and valued relationships with their peers. Excellent communication, clean environment, interesting activities and nutritious as well as culturally diverse food on offer. We couldn't have asked for more. Thank you to all the staff at Guardian childcare & Education Acacia Gardens

Guardian Acacia Gardens is a wonderful centre with caring, dedicated staff. Our daughter has attended there over the past 3.5 years and each room from Nursery to Preschool has been a positive and nurturing experience. I couldn't recommend this centre and the wonderful team of educators more!! The rooms are beautiful, fun and clean, and they have a great outdoor play area. We will miss them all very much!

My daughter has been at Guardian Acacia garden for couple of months now,we are so happy and thankful for the management to gave us the opportunity to be the part of this wonderful service. she has already managed to expand on her vocabulary dramatically. The positive influence all staff have on my daughter is just amazing and very impressive as I can now see changes in her attitude regarding sharing with others and simple things like listening and following instructions. Every educator has a very special bond and relationship with my daughter and I would like to thank all staff for nurturing and looking after her as though she was their own. I would like to especially thank all teacher's for making my daughter so comfortable.I recommend this place to all the parents if you are looking for a safe, fun and educational environment for your little ones, then Guardian Acacia garden is exactly the place for that.

This is a brilliant child care service. A supportive and nurturing environment where your children develop both themselves and friendships with their peers. Additional needs for children are met without any hesitation. The educators are remarkably good in their positions, and form lovely bonds with the children. I wouldn't place my children in any other centre.

Over the past 4 years I have been a parent of this centre as I have sent all 3 of my daughters to Play Days Acacia Gardens. Over this time I have had the pleasure of getting to know all of the staff in each room and have received nothing but impeccable care for my children as well as fantastic communication skills displayed to both my husband. The staff at Play days have always been so welcoming, warm and gentle that drop off's have never been issue and my daughters really love going to day care and enjoy their daily activities which have been planned for them. Can't thank all the staff enough for all they have done for our family over the years
