We have been at Guardian Manly since the day it opened its doors. They have navigated Covid, new centre teething issues and have come through as a very well managed centre. My girls love it there and often ask to go on the weekends!

My daughter has been enrolled here for 5 months. Initially she was shy and struggling with separation from me but the team worked so hard to support her every week and she now loves going to daycare. Each of the educators has a personal relationship with her and she has really come out of her shell. I couldn’t recommend the team here more.

Welcome to our Centre

Welcome to Guardian Childcare & Education Manly, an expansive, light-filled centre across from the beach. Our childhood education programs are focused on play-based learning, where our spacious day care and child care centre provides a nurturing and stimulating environment for children aged six weeks to six years of age, supporting them to discover the world in a safe and secure way.

Our Manly day care and child care centre is conveniently situated for families living in surrounding suburbs such as Manly, Manly Vale, Balgowlah, Fairlight and Queenscliff.

Our exciting, resource-rich environments include:

  • Passionate Educators who focus on relationships with children and families
  • Bright, modern learning spaces designed to inspire curiosity, fun, and a sense of belonging
  • Engaging outdoor environment including a spacious rooftop garden and large sandpit to spark learning and exploration

Supported through a passionate and dedicated team of University-qualified Teachers and Educators, our child care and day care centre in Manly is an inclusive learning environment for children where a personalised approach to learning opportunities ensures children are supported to be bold, creative, and curious in their learning journey.

Children attending our Manly child care centre will also have the chance to see the same familiar faces as they move on up from our nursery room, into our Preschool program, designed specifically to help prepare your child transition from early learning to primary school.

Eligible children who turn 4 years old on or before 31 July 2024 will receive up to $2,110 in additional subsidies. This fee support is on top of any Child Care Subsidy eligible families may be receiving. If your child is 3 years old and not yet 4 years old on, or before 31 July in 2024 and is enrolled at our Centre, you will receive up to $500 in fee relief. Ask us for more information when you visit our Centre. 

As part of our unique Visible Learning Program, families will also have the chance to gain an understanding of their child’s learning. Easily accessible for families, our Learning Exchange Display provides the opportunity for our Teachers and Educators to share with you any updates on their progress every day. You will also have the chance to share with us your own personal goals and visions for us to implement, having direct input in your child’s educational journey!

Families will also be given access to our family communication app Storypark, where we will share with you any significant updates in your child’s day, as well as any other important updates that happen in the centre – ensuring that you’re always connected, even when you’re not here.

If you’re looking to begin the adventure and are wanting to explore, book a tour and meet our team at Guardian Childcare & Education Manly today!
