Our Tempe day care and child care centre is conveniently situated for families living in surrounding suburbs such as Wolli Creek, St Peters, and Sydenham. With easy access from the Princes Highway, it is also suitable for those commuting from both the southern and inner west suburbs of Sydney.

Our exciting, resource-rich environments include:

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

Situated near Tempe Recreation Reserve and across from Cooks River, our Tempe day care and child care centre is also in proximity to Tempe Primary School and Tempe High School, providing ample opportunities for excursions and any other activity-based outings. Our day care and child care centre offers onsite parking; making it easier for you during pick up and drop off times.

Children attending our Tempe 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.

Great centre, lovely team in the Nursery. Loved being kept up to date on my daughters day on the app and knowing her nap times to help with routine when she gets home. We felt very welcomed for her first daycare experience. We’re also kept aware of viral outbreaks and any other news

I believe Guardian Tempe is the best Childcare Centre in the area, it has the most spacious outdoor area rooftop for the children to explore. Yes, Certainly preschool room needs a bit of settling in, but it's working towards the excellence, hopefully with all of our ECT staffing coming back on board from their extended holidays...

Our 2 sons attend Guardian Childcare. First at Guardian Childcare in Coorparoo, Brisbane. And when we moved to Sydney we looked at 10 different centres to enrol our boys in however none lived up to the same standard that Guardian has. Our nearest Guardian Centre is actually 25 mins away from us but we feel that the travel is worth it as we know our child is receiving the best care among the best educators that I can find. Thank you guardian for upholding such a high standard and for the care you provide which is invaluable.

My son has been attending the centre since the November/20 and absolutely loves the staff. He has had the same educators from the toddlers room up to the preschoolers, which has given him so much confidence in the early stages of his life. His development has been fantastic and the best part is how caring his educators and staff in general are. My son asks to go to school on weekends, which is new to us, that is how much he enjoys being there.The centre has recently changed management teams, however, Grace and her crew are fabulous, taking onboard all feedback the parents provide and we have noticed how much better it is run now.On behalf of our little family, we would like to say a big thank you to Menaka, Luciana, Lily and all educators doing their absolute very best.

The new centre manager Grace is a capable leader, she has a keen sense of the group’s pivotal norms, she knows how to cultivate group identity and efficacy, which helps to bring my family’s confidence back to the services after having had so many unpleasant experiences, what’s more, my partner and I have decided to continue our son’s daycare services at Tempe centre. Keep up Grace and Tempe Team.

My daughter has been attending Guardian Childcare and Education Tempe this year through the pandemic and I am so pleased we decided to go ahead with her enrolment, we have just enrolled for 2022 also. She attends 2 days per week and I can tell she benefits from it in so many different ways, I can see that she looks forward to it as well which is by far the biggest benefit of all. I have found the educators to be warm, welcoming, patient and kind. They are always willing to communicate with the parents and keep us in the loop of the children's development and any information we may need to address during what has been a somewhat challenging time for all. I could not recommend a better service, we would have been lost without the them this year.

Its time for my daughter to start a new stage of her life at a Kindy.Just want to say Thank you so much for taking care of Alice this year. Alice made lots of friends and enjoyed her time at the Tempe centre. We will strongerly recommend your centre to friends around the area.Special thanks to Ms KAT and Ms DEWI. Their smile always making the pick up and drop off full of happiness. Also Ms DEWI's comment through storypark is also very professional and informative. The comment helped Alice grow.Wish all the staff at Tempe centre the best in the future. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

My bub started going to day care when she was only 7 months and I was very emotional and scared to send her to the day care. I was assured by the staff that they will take care and they actually do. I am so happy that I found the right day care for my baby. The educators are so amazing and so loving and caring. They ensure that the babies are learning something new everyday and are happy and smiling when they are in daycare. Not only the educators but the team leaders and centre manager are very supportive and understanding. They never mind if I call them several times in a day to check on my baby because I am a worrying mum. I think I found second home for my baby. They are like extended family to people like us who have no family here. Definitely recommend this daycare.

I took a tour of this lovely centre and enrolled right away, you know when somewhere feels special, when the educators take that extra moment to connect with both my son and I. He was so excited it was hard to leave, but again the room educators were there to help out, I love the cooked meals provided and the nappies available, two less things I need to deal with in the mornings.The staff were so friendly, my son and I can't wait to start!

From Day 1 , I have been amazed by the caring educators at Guardian Tempe - Karina not only comforted my crying daughter as I dropped her off, but also comforted her crying father and called twice on that first day to let me know She was okFast forward two years and Guardian Tempe still has the most amazing staff who I know love and look after my daughter - and I can see the benefits in her social skills; speech and confidenceThey are a great team and we love them

My daughter has been going to Guardian Tempe for 2 years and we've never had any concerns or reservations about sending her to daycare. She loves attending and I've never had any issues settling her or concerns about leaving her. She particularly loves Thursday's when Miss Amy comes for Happy Feet and Friday's when the lovely center manager takes them for a yoga class. The communication is definitely getting better and StoryPark is a great tool that allows us to see photos and hear about what the kids have been up too through the day. Miss Karina is my daughter's 'focus educator' and she is delightful and always knows what's going on with my daughter.
