Awesome childcare. Our son has been at Guardian for over 10 months since he was 8 months old. They’ve really helped shape him into a lovely little boy. We’re always amazed at this little things he’s picked up, from putting rubbish in the bin, tucking his chair away and tidying up his toys at the end of the day. The facility is awesome, the educators amazing, and the learning program fun and engaging.Highly recommend!

The nursing team is amazing, specially the manager Soyoung who has great ideas to make the nursery very organised with all information of each child well captured. My son went to this nursery in 2013 and I was very satisfied but this year I was very impressed.

In addition to my below 12month old 5 Star review, I would like to THANK Guardian for keeping up with their professional and loving approach towards my toddler who will soon be turning 3yrs of age. Guardian is a second home to her and the caring educators are an extension of the discipline and development program that I share along with them. Keep up the great work GUARDIAN!!________________My 1 year old toddler has been a part of Guardian at Gladesville for the past 4 months and I marvel at the exponential growth phase she is going through due to all the learning and development programs that Guardian has to offer. I absolutely love to see her daily pics in action and look forward to reading her observation reports. This assures me of the constant attention that my child is given to develop not only her personality but also allows her a well rounded approach to speech, movement, talking, singing, playing, reading, learning, defining her fine motor skills, eating habits and cleanliness regime. Each educator has a combined energy of professionalism with the personal touch that I see reflecting in my girls secure and happy relationship she has developed with the team. I absolutely recommend this center for anyone who wants to have peace of mind while you are at work and are re-assured that your baby is well cared for in capable hands.

Highly recommend Acre Woods Gladesville. Nurturing and caring childcare facility with excellent, updated outdoor/indoor play spaces. Delicious meals, including dinner, prepared by onsite cook. Attentive and highly-skilled staff lead by very dynamic and professional centre manager, Emily.

My son Charles has been at Acre Woods for 1.5years. He is my first child so I didn't really know what to expect from childcare. After talking with friends, Acre Woods does so many things above and beyond. Charles likes Dinosaurs so they made him a Dinosaur area in the room, he likes Lizards so they arranged a class excursions to go hunting for them. They genuinely care for him. His favourites are Tina and Emma and they greet him each day with a big hello, smile and hug. I'm a very happy parent.

Highly recommend Acre Woods Gladesville. Warm and friendly staff. I fell in love with the large nature play area that is partly undercover so the children always have fresh air, even on rainy days the children can play outside. The play stations change almost every month so it always appears updated and interesting. Both my children love coming to little school and each have their own favourite teacher. I’m very impressed with their learning program too. Overall, I have been super happy with the level of care my miss 2 and master 4 have had at this school.

I started my baby in the nursery at 6 months, the ladies were very sympathetic and allowed me to stay as long as I needed. There was a few issues i had with service eg daily updates/pictures not being sent or her daily sheet not being filled out, but enter the staff- Tina and Sharah, and I/we couldn't be happier.Both these girls go out of their way to look after my baby they are caring, warm, fun, knowledgeable, they are fabulous at their jobs. I like all the staff there, but Tina and Sharah are absolute stand outs, you can tell they do it for the love.Now were are 3 months later and my baby girl almost jumps out of my arms to go to them or play and most days when i collect her I get a quick glance and a smile and she crawls off to keep playing...The centre itself is HUGE my little girl is an explorer so she loves crawling from one side to the other, and they have just undergone a renovation so its all brand new!!!Highly recommend this centre

My son has been attending this centre for nearly 3 years now and loves it here, especially the huge covered play area. The staff are also great and attentive. This place also has the edge over other centres through their extended operating hours and providing a light ‘dinner’.

More about Guardian Gladesville

Guardian’s wonderful teaching team at our Gladesville kindergarten and early learning centre facilitate varied, fun and interesting learning experiences tailored to each individual child. Many of our families and educators are from the local area which creates a strong feeling of community and belonging for everyone at the centre. We welcome you to come and meet our passionate team of educators and to experience our beautiful learning environments for yourself.

Our childcare and early learning programs offer so many benefits for families, including: 

  • Preschool Program: We help prepare your child for Primary School with our leading curriculum delivered by Teachers with specialist early childhood university degrees. 
  • Partnership with Families: Your peace of mind is important to us, so we work with you and your child every step of the way. 
  • Community connections. Regular excursions to explore the local area, as well as a ‘home-away-from-home’ approach to care. 
  • Wellbeing and nutrition. Nutritionally balanced, seasonal meals and snacks prepared by a dedicated on-site chef, as well as regular cooking classes for the children. 
  • Provide real-world inspired environments. Our Centres inspire curiosity, foster creativity and support discovery with a variety of sensory-rich and sustainable spaces designed for early learning that encourage your child to think, question and do amazing things.  

We know it’s a big decision to make about who will care for your child, but we aim to make it an easy one by providing a home-away-from-home at Gladesville, where children learn and feel safe to explore in a variety of settings.  

Our world-class curriculum is delivered by qualified teachers through exciting and engaging play-based experiences, including our leading Preschool Program for our older children. We combine this with the highest quality care, and communicate it all back to you so you can see how your child is growing and developing every day.

Our enrolment options provide long day care hours to support families, combining the security of ongoing bookings with the flexibility to access casual care days when needed (if spaces are available in your room).  

Our close partnership with families allows us to offer a range of additional benefits to the learning and childcare experience for the children in our Centres. We pride ourselves on the support we offer families and want to help make it a little easier to balance all those daily commitments, through initiatives such as:  

  • Designated drop off and pick up zones to assist with those busy mornings and afternoons. 
  • Casual care days where possible to help you manage the unpredictable nature of work life and home life.   
  • Assisting you with government subsidies and entitlements to help you make the most of the financial support which may be available 
  • Our family communication app StoryPark to keep you informed throughout the day with photos, videos and updates about your child  
  • We hold parent and educator sessions to keep you informed of your child’s individual progress.  
  • Providing your child with unexpected benefits such as exposure to a range of cultures and languages via our diverse and multi-cultural educator mix.   

Each Guardian childcare and early learning Centre is as unique as the children within it. However, creating community connections is something we’re incredibly passionate about at Guardian Gladesville.
