Guardian Childcare & Education Gladesville

(Formerly Acre Woods)

Guardian Childcare & Education Gladesville has been rated as Exceeding the National Quality Standards for childcare. Located near both Victoria Road and Ryde Aquatic Centre, our convenient location means you can spend less time commuting between home and work and enjoy more quality time with your child, hearing about all the exciting things that they’ve learned with us throughout the day.

The Centre boasts a range of exciting, resource-rich environments including a brand-new outdoor oasis complete with garden beds, water pump, two-tier climbing net and a beautiful indoor/outdoor environment where our exciting programs come to life.

The teachers and educators at Guardian Gladesville provide wonderful learning programs for the children, including a leading Preschool Program for those aged from three and up.

Guardian Gladesville also uses the parent communication app StoryPark to stay connected with their families and children and to ensure parents are kept up-to-date about what’s happening in the Centre and what their child has been doing throughout the day. This ongoing partnership promotes continuity of learning and sharing with children and families some of the experiences planned at the Centre.

Our on-site cook, Maggie, who has been with the Centre for eight years, prepares five nutritionally balanced meals using seasonal ingredients every day, and the Educators host hands-on cooking experiences for the children to extend on their knowledge of nutrition and to encourage them to try new foods. Children can also enjoy their meals in the dedicated piazza while socialising with their peers and educators.
