Guardian Childcare & Education Haberfield

Welcome to Guardian Childcare & Education Haberfield, the perfect childcare and daycare centre for families living in surrounding suburbs such as Five Dock, Leichardt, Lilyfield, Ashfield and Canada Bay. With a range of resource-rich environments, our centre is a stimulating and nurturing environment for children aged six weeks to six years.  

Focused on play-based learning, children are supported with a team of culturally diverse, passionate, and dedicated Teachers and Educators who take on a personalised approach to learning. This ensures that each child receives the best possible care tailored to their own individual needs! 

Our childcare centre provides children with ample open-ended experiences that allow them to explore and discover their world in a safe and secure way. These include inspiring spaces such as: 

  • Age-specific indoor and indoor spaces for adventure, 
  • A natural mud kitchen for children to play, 
  • Bike paths and a water pump for play, and; 
  • Vegetable gardens for active learning about nature and sustainability 

Children will also have the chance to see the same familiar faces as they move on up from our nursery room into our leading Preschool program, designed specifically to help prepare your child for a smooth transition from early learning to Primary school. 

As part of our unique Visible Learning Program, families are able to track and keep up to date with the progress of their child’s learning via the Learning Exchange Display – found directly near the front on the centre. Here, our Teachers and Educators will share with you any significant updates on your child’s development, as well as providing the chance for you to share your own goals and visions – providing direct input into your child’s educational journey!  

As a way to stay connected to families, families will have access to our family communication app StoryPark.  Here we will share with you any significant updates on your child’s day to day, as well as any other important updates that happen in the centre.

More about Guardian Haberfield

Haberfield is a suburb in the Inner West of Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia. Haberfield is located 6.5 km west of the Sydney central business district in the local government area of the Inner West Council. Guardian Childcare Haberfield services a number of local areas, including: Ashfield, West Ashfield, Five Dock, Leichhardt, Croydon, Rodd Point and Annandale. 

Our Haberfield centre offers a range of experiences through our childcare program that we believe are important for any child’s development in their early years. Our curriculum is modeled on the National Early Learning Years Framework which recognises the incredible value of investing in the first five years of a child’s life and the vital role that educators play in developing the whole child. 

At Guardian Haberfield we prioritise working with families, not just children – because we understand that a true family childcare service should focus on childhood education as well as connecting your young ones to the community and preparing them for school. 

With extended standard hours and a goal to create the best educational programs for children in the country, we’re here for you during those crucial Preschool years. 

We offer a curriculum broader than just literacy and numeracy, including language, art, music, social skills, sport, sustainability and much more. With a strong focus on family involvement, engagement and communication, Guardian Haberfield also offers a solid team of experienced educators who are passionate about their roles, and this is reflected in the genuine interest they take in each and every child and family. We love building connections with the families at our Centre, and endeavour to learn as much as we can about them. 

We value the role of families as a child’s first teacher and we’re committed to developing trusting relationships by listening and responding to families about all aspects of their child’s learning and development. So, our approach is focused on the latest research and insights into how children learn best, and the specific skills they will need to thrive in the 21st Century. 

We have an on-site cook who prepares all meals fresh each day, using seasonal and healthy ingredients. We also grow a range of fresh ingredients at most of our Centres, that the children love getting involved with – often harvesting those vegetables and herbs to use in the Centre kitchen as part of their learning about nutrition and wellness. It’s a real playground to plate experience! 

We aim to cater for children’s individual routines by practicing consistency between families’ homes and centres and by talking to parents about changes as children grow. 

We ensure that all children have the opportunity to achieve and experience a variety of developmentally appropriate activities in aesthetically pleasing environments designed for growing bodies and creative minds. 

We also offer a number of additional benefits for busy families, such as: 

  • Designated drop off and pick up zones to assist with those busy mornings and afternoons. 
  • Casual care days where possible. 
  • 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. 
  • We hold parent and educator sessions to keep you informed of your child’s individual progress.
