Guardian Childcare & Education Sydenham

Guardian Childcare & Education Sydenham provides an incredible learning environment and leading curriculum that promotes holistic development for children across all areas, through our focus on intentional and spontaneous learning.

Our Centre boasts a range of modern facilities and world-class learning environments, including:

  • Spacious well thought-out indoor spaces
  • Expansive yards with natural play structures for the children to explore
  • A dedicated dining space for the children to come together to share a meal
  • An ‘Invention Room’ for all age groups to explore, problem solve and create
  • Gardening spaces to promote awareness of caring for our environment
  • A well-stocked Centre Library
  • A leading Kindergarten Program
  • Vacation Care Program for children aged 5-12
  • Modern resources, and a range of age-specific studios and workshops.

At Guardian Sydenham we have a strong focus on community with our ‘out and about’ program. The program promotes all age groups having the opportunity to explore the environment outside of the centre and gain a greater understanding of the world around them. We network with many local businesses such as the local library, bakery, schools and aged care.

We are proud to have such a culturally diverse team at Guardian Childcare & Education Sydenham and we celebrate a variety of cultural events and holidays throughout the year.

Read more on our blog about Guardian Sydenham Centre Manager Parwinder, and her passion for early education and care.

Parwinder says: “My favourite part about working with children is watching them grow and utilise the skills they learn in our care. It may not seem obvious, but a lot of the skills we teach the children, particularly through intentional learning, are lifelong skills, and are the tools that they’ll use for the rest of their lives. It’s important to remember that we are always learning from the children, and that it’s not a one-way street.”

Our on-site Centre chief Tania is dedicated to providing five nutritious meals throughout the day, and through conversations with our families we ensure the menu is culturally diverse and accommodating to all children. To further explore food at the Centre, our cook hosts regular cooking experiences for the children to enhance their understanding of good nutrition.
