Guardian Childcare & Education St Ives

Welcome to Guardian Childcare & Education St Ives, we are excited to share that we are NOW OPEN. Our brand-new 122 place purpose-built early learning centre is conveniently situated for families living in surrounding suburbs such as Turramurra, North Turramurra, Roth Park,  Warrawee, St Ives Chase, Gordon, Gordon Park, Brown’s Forest, Killara and East Killara.   

Easily accessible from Hunter Avenue and Eastern Arterial Road, our early childhood centre is conveniently located near a number of bus stops, and it hosts undercover onsite parking; making it easier for you during pick up and drop off times.  

Situated near Barra Brui Park, our childcare centre is also in proximity to St Ives High school and St Ives Primary school, providing ample opportunities for excursions and any other activity-based outings.

Focused on play-based learning, our expansive, purpose-built centre is a nurturing and stimulating environment for children aged six weeks to six years of age, enabling them to discover the world in a safe and secure way.

These resource-rich environments include: 

  • Six beautiful, light-filled learning spaces designed to inspire curiosity, fun, and a sense of belonging 
  • Three architecturally-designed outdoor play spaces full of intrigue and adventure

Supported through a passionate and dedicated team of bachelor-qualified Teachers and Educators, our centre team implements a personalised approach to learning to ensure that each child receives the best possible care tailored to their own individual needs.

Children attending our early learning 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.

As part of our unique Visible Learning Program, families will also have the chance to gain an understanding of their child’s learning. Found directly near the front of the centre, 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, 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, enquire and speak to one of our team members to learn more about our brand-new childcare centre today!
