Guardian Childcare & Education Homebush

(Formerly Sweet Peas)

Guardian Childcare & Education Homebush has a range of exciting, resource-rich environments including herb and vegetable gardens, climbing frames and space for bike riding. Teachers and Educators at Guardian Homebush also provide wonderful learning programs for the children, including a leading Preschool Program for those preparing for the transition to primary school.

The Team at Guardian Homebush use the family communication app StoryPark to stay connected and ensure families are kept up-to-date about what’s happening in the Centre and what the children have been doing throughout the day. This ongoing partnership promotes continuity of learning.

We are proud to have a culturally diverse team of Educators at Guardian Homebush, who celebrate a variety of cultures and holidays in our Centre throughout the year. To further explore our local community, children regularly get out and about for a range of excursions.

Our dedicated on-site cook prepares five nutritionally balanced meals using seasonal ingredients every day. To further explore food at the Centre, our Educators host cooking classes for the children to get involved in to enhance their understanding of good nutrition. Children can enjoy their meals either indoors in the piazza or outside in the shade whilst socialising.

Our Educators

Our team of Educators are committed and passionate about ensuring your child will be safe, nurtured and cared for every day. At Guardian, children are encouraged to engage in interest-led play that creates learning and meaningful experiences.

Our Educators seek to optimise diverse learning opportunities and implement the Curriculum as framed by the Early Years Learning Framework.

You and Your Child

All Guardian Centres provide a Centre-to-Family communication platform so families can maintain contact with their children’s experiences through photos, stories and learning outcomes.

Our Centres use Storypark and each family is provided with a secure login to access on their computers, mobiles or apps.

Learn More About Our Centre

Guardian Childcare & Education Homebush is spacious and light, with glass walls and large windows overlooking the beautiful landscape of Sydney Olympic Park. Our outdoor space is surrounded by native plants and birds, and is covered by beautiful parasols to allow year-round play. We have two large sandpits, climbing equipment, wooden decking with cubby houses, as well as beautiful gardens. The children especially love tending to our herb garden and worm farm!

Inside you will notice our unique social piazza – a middle room onto which all the other rooms connect. Each day we open all the doors so the children can mix freely with other age groups, including their siblings. Our project work is all around the centre, which is based on the children’s current interests while also covering all areas of the curriculum.

Due to our fantastic location, we often venture out into our community. We take the children to Bicentennial Park to feed the ducks, go on road safety walks, and the preschoolers visit the primary school. We also regularly visit our neighbours who save milk bottles, lids and wooden crates for us to make wonderful creations like plant pots, treasure baskets, and even igloos!

We love holding family fun days such as afternoon teas, and parties for special holidays and festivals. All family and friends are invited, which creates a fabulous community atmosphere.

Day to day, families are welcome to visit their children any time. You can stay for a meal or play session, or take them out for lunch. To keep your mind at ease, we can call or email you during the day with an update on your child’s wellbeing. You can also book meetings with our Educators throughout the year to discuss your child’s development one-on-one.

Our Educators are friendly, welcoming and know each and every family member by name. They can also speak two languages, which helps children from different cultures to feel confident and settled in our care.
