Our son started at Guardian Artarmon when he was 10 months old, he is about to turn 3 and we still love the centre. It’s a small centre with a nice welcoming feel, all the educators and parents acknowledge each other each day. The outdoor learning spaces are as large as the indoor spaces which is great as our son loves the water play and sandpit outside. They create great learning experiences and communicate well with us as parents on his development. The location is also really convenient with a secure undercover carpark which is great for pick up and drop off in the rain. I highly recommended this centre.

Our daughter attending guardian artarmon for a year and was in the shooting stars room. We absolutely loved our child attending here. The staff are extremely caring and it felt like we were dropping our child off with family every time. She was treated like a celebrity at drop off as they were so excited to see her. The only reason we had to leave was because we moved away. I wish we could have moved the daycare with us 😭 special mention to Carol the centre manager and Ivana the baby room leader. M.Hiscox misses you all and still talks fondly of her time there xx

Our first son has been at this childcare centre for 2 years and our second will be joining in a few months. We have continued to take our son here despite Covid and the drive being a bit of an inconvenience with us working from home. The staff at Guardian Artarmon are caring, professional and knowledgeable. Great communication around what our kid is up to and any challenges and milestones. Highly recommend!

Guardian Artarmon is one of my top choices made so far after I gave birth to my son who is now 15 months old. Charlie first joined this Centre when he was turning 12months at that time I had visited quite a few childcares to contribute to the final decision. There are many good childcare’s out there, but as a mum you just want to find the best one which suits your son and your family values. On my visitation day, we were actually 15mins late already due to the traffic but the Centre manager Clare did not get mad with us at all instead she was so friendly and patient with us. She not only followed COVID rules checking our temperatures before we walked in but also gave us some information about this Centre. After we got inside the baby classroom, my baby Charlie went straight to the floor and started to play by himself. I was totally shocked and continued to talk with Clare ,making sure I do ask her lots of questions. As return, she can answer any question I had prepared earlier on even she can tell you how old of each child in front of us. From my experience, she is full of knowledge, passion and professionalism. Because of this nice start , I enrolled my son quickly after we left the Centre. However, this is just the beginning! Each time I dropped Charlie at Centre, the educators made me full of confidence that my son is going to have a great time at Centre , indeed no one has disappointed me, I have great respect for these people who are trained to do their job well. Carol, Ivana, Anna , Joanna , etc everyone who is on the team would make you happy and assured that your baby is also happy. After sending him to childcare almost 4months now, I am still happy about my decision and I can tell my son has grown tremendously in his both character and abilities. The learning curve and environment is very suitable to kids at this age, watching him playing different activities each time on story park with other kids from different backgrounds are so enjoyable, I would never thought a one year and 2months baby can make card to me, be able to draw and paint with the educators’ support, lol.. Anyway I am truly fascinated by such experience which Guardian Artarmon have deemed to create each day! During the last Christmas season, we were even invited to join the online carol party with our kids to share the unforgettable memories due to COVID-19, it was so much fun. At last, Life at Guardian is the best gift I can give to my son, hope you can find your best Centre for your precious one, too.I highly recommend this place to you because this team is so reliable, you won’t want to miss it!

This is a friendly and safe environment for kids to play and grow. The center manager is kind, professional and well knowledgeable. ALL Staff here made me feel welcome and confident to drop off my kid on his two orientation days and first official day so far. My kid is turning to 1 this coming Friday, it is always hard for us to put him to sleep at home, but with the educators' help, he went to sleep in half an hour today in his first official day! I AM super happy about it. Thanks to Clare and all her professional team for the support and genuine care for my son!

An awesome child care where staff love what they are doing and share the love with the children. Very good environment :)A year after my son is put into this centre, we notice that he has developed good habits learnt from the centre. Among the many good habit: always sit down sweetly and eat (doesnt roam around with food), wearing a hat when outside, doesnt throw thing anymore. Thank you for making such a great contribution to the growth of our son!

My Little one joined Artarmon Guardian when he was 9 months and now he is 3. I have recently moved so had to change the childcare facility and I can share that Artarmon Guardian is the best. All the educators love, care and support the overall development of the child. There is a special bond and personal care touch as well. If I can move back I shall sure do...They send you detail updtes how your kid is growing and also support you when you need it.

Our Artarmon childcare Centre is conveniently located for busy families living in the surrounding suburbs of Willoughby, Chatswood, Lane Cove and Northbridge.

The indoor learning environments and spaces, from the babies room to spaces for older children, are designed to create a warm and inviting home away from home. Our friendly Educators and Teachers strive to create meaningful relationships with children and families, while also focusing on helping each child reach their full potential.

At our lower north shore childcare Centre, there is no shortage of fantastic outdoor learning spaces, including an herb garden, a water play area, and a wooden cubby house.

This fee support is on top of any Child Care Subsidy eligible families may be receiving.

Learn More About Our Centre

Guardian Childcare & Education Artarmon is a beautiful early learning centre that incorporates indoor and outdoor settings to provide a natural learning environment for children. Our Educators are warm, friendly, and inviting, and focused on creating a nurturing environment for each age group.

Our early learning centre provides a stimulating care and education environment for children aged six weeks to six years. Our Artarmon child care centre uses play-based learning to support each child’s progress that aligns with outcomes in the National Quality Framework for Early Childhood Education.

Our childcare centre is a part of the local community and we understand the importance of providing a stimulating environment for those important early years of a child’s life. Located on the lower north shore, our Centre is situated in a beautiful area just off the main road.

Families living in the northern suburbs of Sydney, including Artarmon, Lane Cove, Willoughby, St Leornards, Crows Nest and Chatswood can easily access Centre on the way to or from the CBD, relieving the stress for busy families looking for childcare nearby. The child care centre is also close to public transport and conveniently located for families on the north shore.

We understand the importance of providing quality early learning experiences for children in their formative years. Our passionate Educators love supporting children as they develop socially, intellectually and emotionally through those vital early years with a high-quality early education.

The centre also features a babies room, where our specialist nursery Educators support individual routines and secure attachments in a warm environment. Your child will love the indoor and outdoor learning environments, which encourage creativity and exploration and learning resources for all age groups.

The Artarmon early learning centre also has a herb garden that our Educators and children work on collaboratively to grow a variety of plants. Children are regularly given the chance to use these ingredients in our cooking activities.

We also have a fun and engaging water area, where children can explore the properties of water through play. In summer, this space can allow room for activities that can help cool the children down. The wooden cubby house is another popular attraction amongst the children, providing endless opportunities for imagination and pretending.

We invite families to come into the childcare centre at drop-off or pick-up time to spend some time chatting with our Educators, meeting all the children, and exploring our various learning environments. This is a great way for our Educators to develop their understanding of your child’s needs and find ways to provide the best possible early childhood education and childcare experience.

You can also speak to the team about how our curriculum supports how children learn, including school readiness for older children getting ready to start primary school. Why not ask about how you can take advantage of the Child Care Subsidy? Or how our professional kitchen serves up nutritious meals for growing children.

For our four and five-year-olds, we have a dedicated preschool program that can help promote the development of some skills and behaviours they’ll use moving into primary school. Many of our Kindergarten Teachers are university-qualified in early childhood education, meaning they have a strong understanding of early childhood development and learning.

Some of the benefits of our kindergarten curriculum are:

  • Children are supported and guided through social and emotional development to help their sense of identity, communication skills, and wellbeing, and to build their confidence.
  • We encourage children to explore their full creative potential, and we do this by making learning fun and engaging. Through using their creativity, children are empowered to develop their language skills, begin to understand numbers and shapes and become more independent.
  • Our curriculum aims to invoke lifelong feelings of curiosity and a love of learning so that children continue to develop their skills, knowledge and understanding of the world throughout their life.

Our Educators are passionate about childcare and childhood development and work hard to find each child’s unique interests, passions, and talents to incorporate them into learning. We believe that no two days should be the same in those first few years, so our learning environment is constantly changing to provide new opportunities for exploration and engagement with children.

Our Artarmon childcare Centre welcomes babies as young as six weeks, and work with families through the age stages until finally preparing our older children for the exciting transition to primary school with our leading Preschool Program. In fact, we have an amazing Nursery Team that includes a ‘Baby Ambassador’ who specialises in the developmentally appropriate care and learning of babies. One-on-one time and cuddles are prioritised for your baby, with the security of always having a familiar Educator close by who knows your baby.

Communication with families is vital, so we use a family communication app called Storypark. It 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 setting 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! With many of them being university-qualified, our team can connect with every child in a genuine and meaningful way to inspire curiosity and promote growth and development.

Our focus is on building strong relationships with each child and family, to create an atmosphere of safety and security to support children to develop a lifelong love of learning and self-confidence, all in a safe environment.

We also host fun events throughout the year which is a great way for our families to come together and have some fun. We look forward to welcoming you to our Centre soon! Why not book a tour to see the centre meet our highly qualified team and get to know the Centre Manager? We’d love to meet you and your family.
