My 3 children have been at Guardian since September and I can't even begin to describe the difference in care compared to their old childcare that we moved them from. Every educator at Guardian Mq is attentive, caring and empathic towards every child. I have witnessed a marked difference in my oldest behaviour since starting, he is so much happier and I can honestly say this is all down to the educators. I can tell that they really do care about every child and have seen clear, suitable and important behaviour management strategies put in place for the challenging behaviour that my oldest can sometimes display. This has had such a positive impact on him, he is so much happier and settled. I cannot thank the educators enough.I highly recommend the centre, your family will not be disappointed with the level of care provided and the nurturing environment that Centre Manager Natalie and her staff provide.

Could not recommend this centre highly enough. They have been the kids home away from home for years now. From the food to the staff everything is done with the kids best interest in mind.

This centre is outstanding. Such genuinely caring and lovely staff in the nursery and an equally caring and kind manager. Many of the staff have been here for a few years because the culture is so nice. Guardian is like a second home for my little one. He started at six months and I was so nervous because of his age but when I picked him up he wouldn’t stop smiling and absolutely loved it and ate plenty of food. This centre is just wonderful and staff treat the children like their own. I am beyond grateful for the staff at this centre.

Very happy with the education, attention the teachers pay to my child, the genuine love and care the teachers have are very amazing. I can see my kid learns a lot from daycare and repeats them back to me.

I love Acre Woods Macquarie Park. The last 2 years they have helped our family so much, it has been great for our son. I feel like the educators are almost part of our family.

We were recommended to Acrewoods by a colleague and two other friends who had or are sending their wards here. We sent our child here for a year. We experienced the nursery and toddler rooms, and found the Educators extremely caring, friendly and professional. They took very good care of our child and were very patient and loving with her. The Centre Director is also a very warm and welcoming professional. All of them were very understanding, kind and friendly. Very prompt and responsive to any query related to the care. I can wholeheartedly recommend this centre to anyone looking for a safe, friendly and caring environment in the Macquarie Park area. Thank you to all of you at Acrewoods for looking after our baby.

Guardian childcare (previousley Acre Woods) at Macquarie Park is such a great place for kids with a very good team of management and educators. I put my son in this childcare when he was 9 months old and we had a vey good experience since he started. Amazing nursery staff helped me and my son in this transition and I had much less stress as I had to go back to work.We saw him thriving in this childcare and This is the type of centre that I would always recommend.

Staff are very experienced, professional, and caring. Above all there is common sense, and quick satisfactory resolution to issues. Been to multiple care places, and this is by far the very best.

I am open to different aspects of feedback and always communicate with our families, children, and team.”

More about Guardian Macquarie Park

Our childcare and early learning programs at Macquarie Park 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. All of the classrooms overlook the outdoor learning environment which is surrounded by trees, producing plenty of natural shade and it encourages curiosity and exploration. 

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 Macquarie Park. For example: 

  • Excursions. Venturing out into the local area allows children to explore the world around them. 
  • Visiting local amenities. The local library, primary school and art gallery provide opportunities for children to form their identities and feel a part of a community. 
  • Hosting fundraising events. These provide rich and varied learning experiences that develop community-minded citizens. 
  • Language lessons and cultural celebrations. Our Educators bring different skills, experiences and cultures to their roles, providing unique learning opportunities for the children in their care. 

If you’re thinking of enrolling at Guardian Macquarie Park, we’d encourage you to book a tour today. During your tour you will have the opportunity to meet our Centre Manager, Educators and have a really good look around the Centre while the team answer any questions you may have.  We even have a list of questions you can ask us to make sure Guardian Macquarie Park is the right fit for you and your family.
