We have attended Guardian Walker St nearly four years now, and the team there has been amazing to us. Our youngest loved going to Nursery 1, and when she had a health emergency the whole team had hands on deck and took such great care of her, we can’t thank them enough. Our eldest who at the time attended the preschool room was able to regularly visit his little sister when she was new and make her feel like home at the centre. Such lovely memories, thank you to the whole team!

My daughter had a great experience at childcare from the start. The staff had been truly amazing & patient with my daughter who has speech delay. They made sure to give her required encouragement & also did speech exercises with her out of their busy schedule. I cannot thank them enough for the progress my daughter made in her confidence within few months of joining. Very appreciative & special shoutout gor Verita, Aneeka & Ishini for the most amazing support.

Absolutely outstanding Early Childhood facility!Since beginning at Guardian my son has been so excited to go to school each day and has been in a happy mood when at home!My little one has a Level 2 ASD diagnosis and is non-verbal. Seeing his happiness and the bond he shares with the educators has been so important, and I can see how cared for and supported he is each day within the centre. This warmth and security has helped him so much in not only his happiness but his overall development. Guardian is an inclusive environment, and my little boy is able to access all the experiences on offer.In addition to the top-notch learning experiences his beautiful teachers provide, the other staff are supportive and friendly and the extras are dealt with efficiently and professionally.

This is one of the best child care centres on the north shore. Location is great, right in the centre of North Sydney, and the food seems great because our daughter had 3 servings at breakfast and lunch often (refusing solids at home of course). The staff are amazing and our daughter loved them. Our daughter's physical and verbal abilities came on leaps and bounds while she was there. Thanks Ishini and team :)

Everyone at Guardian Walker St is fantastic! My two-year-old daughter has been here for a year now, and she loves it! She is currently in the Toddler room with educator Sophia, and it is a great room! It is a very small room, so my daughter knows all the kids and they all get heaps of attention. She happily yells ‘I am back everybody!” after the weekend, and frequently looks at pictures of her friends and educators and says things like, “Oh Sophia, I love her!”.Ishini, the manager, is a fantastic and lovely person! She really cares about all the families at Guardian, and it shows!My daughter always comes home with wonderful stories and arts and craft projects, and always asks to go again the next day.All the educators are lovely people and I am very happy that we found Guardian Walker St as your daycare centre!

My little one started here when he was 3.5 months and has loved every day of it. All of the educators in the centre have taken great care of him and he has learnt so much in the time he was there. Sadly we had to leave due to moving interstate. If we were to move back to North Sydney there would be no hesitation to enrol him back into GC&E Walker st. Thank you to Ishini and her team for always taking great care of my baby. (We'll definitely pop in to say hi when we're in Sydney)

I am so thrilled with the care and attention my son received from the educators in Nursery 2 at the Guardian Walker Street centre.I loved receiving the photo updates and summaries of the kid's day. It really helped get rid of any of that returning to work guilt I was feeling. I can't recommend Guardian Walker Street enough.

We have had a wonderful experience. Rebekah and her team are good communicators and caring. My child has thrived at the centre. Nura and Mandy in nursery 1 are fantastic. We have not had much interaction with other individual educators at this point but I have full confidence that they will be just as amazing.

Learn More About Our Centre

Guardian Childcare & Education Walker Street offers the warmth and comfort of a family home, right in the hear of North Sydney. Our purpose-built outdoor space is accessible from every classroom and has plenty of room in which to run, ride and explore.

The children love playing outside with friends of different ages, or with their brothers and sisters. We also have a quiet decking space for babies to safely explore the world alongside the older children, which helps to develop their social interaction skills.

We have many budding artists in our care, making our art studio a hub of activity! We believe in embracing our children’s interests and encouraging creative expression, whether that’s individually or collaboratively. Project-based learning allows children to extend their knowledge and abilities in both small and large groups.

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. The centre is filled with bright, stimulating materials that encourage children to explore and engage their curiosity to discover more about the exciting world around them.

Children are supported through those important early years to explore and develop their social and emotional skills through their early learning journey by a dedicated team of university-qualified Teachers and Educators. They create learning experiences in a nurturing environment that fosters creativity and imagination in a safe environment for young age groups.

Guardian Walker St is open from 7.00 am to 6.00 pm every weekday, so each family are provided with plenty of flexibility for the hours they work and the time they choose to drop off and pick up their child. During drop-off or pick-up times, we encourage you to stay for a little while and spend some time exploring the learning environment.

Our Educators and Teachers in each age room can provide some understanding of the various play materials and education spaces throughout the Centre to help you discover some ways to continue learning at home. We encourage involving the whole family in their child’s care and education to ensure they are happy as they learn and grow.

Our family communication app, Storypark, provides you with photos and updates on your child throughout the day, offering you the opportunity to stay informed about your child’s early learning and development. We also set up different learning outcomes for the children through Storypark, which supports them in achieving developmental milestones and understanding new ideas.

For children aged three and four, we have a preschool program led by university-qualified Teachers that can support your child in their preparation for the step up into primary school. Our preschool curriculum is based on leading child development research and demonstrates our commitment to providing the best possible start to life for your child through quality child care services.

Our early childhood education program is led by specialist Educational Leaders who guide teaching and learning in a flexible and research-supported way. The leading curriculum supports discovery and gives children the best start to life, as well as being aligned with the National Quality Standard.

Through our high-quality preschool program, children have the opportunity to learn some of the skills that are often only introduced in early primary school. We begin learning and exploring shapes, numbers and letters through fun, play-based activities.

We develop each child’s literacy and numeracy skills to help them feel confident and prepared during the challenging leap into primary school. Our high-quality program supports the needs and routines of each of our families, and we ensure each child’s cultural and family background is supported and encouraged.

We’re committed to children’s nutrition, and our on-site cook prepares each meal fresh and packed with all the nutrients that children need at their age. We encourage children to engage in food preparation and to ask questions about where their food comes from, why it’s good for them, and how they can eat it. We also encourage exploration of the cultural heritage behind different foods, helping promote diversity and inclusion from an early age.

As part of our unique Visible Learning Program, families will be able to gain an understanding of their child’s education. Our Learning Exchange Display will provide the opportunity for our Teachers and Educators to share updates on your child’s progress. It will also be a chance for you to have direct input into your child’s learning!

Why not come and meet the team and have a look around our Centre today? We’d love to show you why Guardian Childcare & Education Walker St is the perfect learning environment for your child. At Guardian, we believe that together, we can give young children the best start to life.

We look forward to welcoming you soon!
