Guardian Childcare & Education Cherrybrook

(Formerly Playdays)

Every day is a new opportunity for discovery and growth at Guardian Childcare & Education Cherrybrook (formerly Playdays), which is rated exceeding in the National Quality Standard. With a range of resource-rich environments, including a spacious undercover patio, vegetable gardens, built-in tunnel, clay play area and a range of age-specific ateliers, children are encouraged to explore and learn.

The homely centre is located in a quiet residential area, with horses living across the road. We look forward to taking the children on excursions to visit the horses, local library and catch a train from the soon-to-be completed Cherrybrook station.

With a community-minded team of Educators, there’s always something happening at Guardian. Regular guests include the dentist, Swim Safe team, optometrist, Rangers on the Run and a chick hatching program.

Our on-site cook prepares three nutritionally balanced meals using seasonal ingredients every day. To further explore food at the centre, our dedicated Educators host weekly cooking classes for the children to get involved in to enhance their understanding of good nutrition.

Learn More About Our Centre

Guardian Childcare & Education Cherrybrook is a small early learning and childcare centre with a big heart. Hidden away in the West Pennant Hills valley, our permanent and stable team means your child will be greeted every day by educators that they know and trust, in an environment that develops a love of learning and strong friendships.

Our program is individually tailored to each child. We have developed a unique early learning curriculum that promotes learning and development by taking children’s personal interests, and turning them into opportunities for educational play. We also prepare the children for the big wide world through our unique school readiness program.

We believe that children who eat well, learn well. As such, we offer a delicious wholefood early learning menu that is prepared on site each day using only the freshest seasonal ingredients.

Within our Centre, the children love playing host to special guests such as visitors from NSW Dog Safety, LazyTown, Bob Turner Wildlife, and the Muru Mittigar Aboriginal community. Outside the centre, our annual Forest Elves and Fairies Walk in the local Cumberland State Forest is always a huge hit!
