Guardian Childcare & Education Blackwall

Guardian Childcare & Education Blackwall NQS Rated Exceeding by ACECQA

Our centre has been recognised as ‘Exceeding’ the National Quality Standard. This is the highest rating you can receive from a regulatory authority assessment and we are proud to deliver an exceptional service to the children and families who attend our centre.

Awarded NSW State Finalist at the 2022 KindiCare Excellence Awards

Guardian Childcare & Education Blackwall is located on the beautiful Central Coast, 80km north of Sydney and boasts a range of exciting, resource-rich environments, including a sprawling outdoor space.

The warm, welcoming Centre also has a herb garden, natural play structures, and a range of age-specific areas for the children to explore and learn.

Teachers and Educators at Guardian Blackwall also provide wonderful learning programs for the children, including a leading Preschool Program for those preparing for the transition to primary school. Children also get out and about on excursions into the local community – often walking to our local parks, and the older preschool children visit Peninsula Leisure Village once a month to visit the elderly residents.

Our dedicated on-site cook prepares three nutritionally balanced meals using seasonal ingredients every day. The children also enjoy hands-on cooking classes, which enhance their understanding of good nutrition.

Learn More About Our Centre

This newly renovated centre has wonderful home-like indoor and natural outdoor spaces that provide plenty of opportunity for exploration, play and learning.

We have five indoor Reggio-inspired learning and play environments and our secure outdoor spaces include fruit trees, bush tucker garden, climbing fort, yarning circles and a range of different spaces for active and quiet play. The children have learned to care for and respect the environment through tending to our plants, worm farm and using our compost bins. They can also pick healthy ingredients from our vegetable gardens to include in meals.

Our early childhood educators have a great love and passion for children and our development-appropriate learning programs are tailored for our Nursery, Toddler, Kinder and Preschool children. Our Educators’ stability is a high priority allowing you and your child to develop strong and trusting relationships with our Educators.
