Petit Elderslie has been helping our family for the last 4 years and I can guarantee they are the best in the area.The staff are supportive, caring and happy, which in turn makes for a happy, safe, and loving environment for our children.

Staff are very friendly. My daughter (8mths) settled in easily and had no issues at the daycare. A special thank you to Miss Lauren in Baby Boulevard. She always kept me updated, answered all my questions and made me feel extremely confident in the daycare, especially with me being entirely new to the process! Thank you Lauren - you are a great representative for Petit!

Can’t express how much I love this centre!! After a horrible experience at a previous centre I was feeling deflated but as soon as I walked into Petit Elderslie I felt the warmth from every single staff member we encountered! Fast forward to his first day he had a absolute ball, when it was time to pick him up he was happy as Larry playing with the other children laughing his head off. Was a beautiful and appreciated sight. I know look forward to daycare :)

Learn More about Our Centre

Guardian Childcare & Education Elderslie offers the warmth and comfort of a family home in the southwest Sydney suburb of Elderslie. Located on Kingsman Avenue, access to the Camden Bypass makes it convenient for families in neighbouring suburbs of Camden, Narellan and Spring Farm.

Our spacious day care centre provides quality care in 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 Elderslie is open from 7.00am to 6.30pm 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 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 and is aligned with the National Quality Standards and the Early Years Learning Framework.

Through our high-quality preschool program, children can develop some of the skills 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 Elderslie is the perfect 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!
