Guardian Childcare & Education Lilyfield

(Formerly Billy Kids)


Guardian Childcare & Education Lilyfield (formerly Billy Kids), is located a short drive from the Sydney Inner-West suburbs of Leichhardt, Haberfield, Rozelle and Forest Lodge. The Centre is a great option for local families wanting high-quality childcare close to home or on the way to the CBD for work.

The Centre is rated exceeding in the National Quality Standard and boasts a range of exciting, resource-rich environments – including three spacious outdoor spaces complete with a water pump, a rock-climbing wall, hills and alfresco dining areas – children are encouraged to explore and learn.

Guardian Lilyfield is a light-filled Centre that is both modern yet homely and is home to lots of native trees and bamboo, vegetable gardens and a range of age-specific studios where our programs come to life – including a leading Kindergarten Program for those aged from three and up.

Centre Manager Danielle shares on our blog why she loves working with children and leading her team of Educators to make a real difference in the learning experiences of the children at guardian Lilyfield:

“What I get most excited about is that learning for children is an endless adventure and can be facilitated no matter the topic or idea. The possibilities can change, be questioned, be extended, or lead to something else entirely. No learning moment or experience is ever the same and once scaffolded and nurtured by our Educators, it can be so meaningful.”

Our on-site cooks prepare five nutritionally balanced meals using seasonal ingredients every day. To further explore food at the Centre our Guardian Lilyfield Educators host hands-on cooking classes for the children to expand their understanding of good nutrition and to encourage them to try new foods.

Before your child starts at Guardian, we invite you and your child to come and spend some time with us. This can help to make your child’s first day less daunting, particularly if they are new to formalised childcare. For extra peace of mind, we have an open door policy where you can call or drop in at any time of the day to check on your child.

Our playgrounds are designed as a place of wonder and inspiration and we have three separate playgrounds to meet the developmental needs for children of all ages. There are veggie patches to care for, a mud kitchen and water pump to ignite the imagination and promote thinking around maths and science. We have quiet spaces to relax and places for active play where children can ride their bikes, climb and run. Our outdoor art room and beautiful deck with al fresco dining provide multiple opportunities for outdoor experiences.

    All of the educators are kind, patient and are great with kids. They're often chatting with us about our child to make sure her major developments are well supported.
