From the gorgeous, architecturally designed churches to Leichhardt Town Hall and Pioneers Memorial Park, the suburb of Leichhardt is known for both its pretty views, stunning buildings, and its big blue skies. Just 5 kilometres west of the Sydney Central Business District, Leichhardt is a short commute for anyone who travels into the city.
And the many landmarks that are found along the way—such as the Leichhardt Fire Station, the Norton Hotel, and the Old Cyclops Toy Factory—are all a fun part of Leichhardt’s history for those who are curious to discover.
Plus, families in the area also enjoy the colourful mural art, the commercial art galleries, and the annual Italian Festa on Norton Street, making it a fun suburb to explore with the kids.
Of course, the multiple opportunities to find quality Leichhardt childcare programs in the surrounding area is another reason many families choose to reside here. Working parents even have several top-rated Guardian childcare centres to choose from. Each of which are perfect for children aged 6 weeks to 6 years of age.
At just 1.1 kilometres from Leichhardt, our Guardian Lilyfield centre is a quick commute for parents who need a Leichhardt early learning program for their child as they work. And our Guardian Lilyfield centre boasts some pretty unique offerings for children indeed. With lots of native trees and bamboo, vegetable gardens, and a range of age-specific studios where our programs come to life, children enrolled in our Lilyfield centre have many opportunities to think, grow, and learn throughout the day and make lots of friends while doing so.
Plus, our Guardian centre in Camperdown—located only 1.6 kilometres outside of Leichhardt—offers exciting play spaces, including a spacious rooftop playground, water play areas, art ateliers, a vegetable garden, and a worm farm. Parents needing Leichhardt child care appreciate just how much our Guardian Camperdown centre has to offer in such close proximity to where their family lives, works, and plays in and around Leichhardt.
For parents who don’t mind a short 2.2-kilometre drive, our Guardian Haberfield location is also available to provide an impressive Leichhardt daycare option for working families. At Guardian Haberfield, children enjoy the age-appropriate indoor and outdoor adventure spaces, a natural mud kitchen, bike paths, a water pump, and vegetable gardens all conveniently located on the premises.
Located just 2.8 kilometres outside the Leichhardt suburb, our Guardian Balmain Cove also provides Leichhardt day care programs for children. Guardian Balmain even has herb gardens, worm farms, a large verandah, natural play structures, and a range of age-specific play areas where children are encouraged to explore and learn daily.
Lastly, our Guardian Marrickville centre is a short 4.1-kilometre commute from the heart of Leichhardt. Impressively, the children at this Leichhardt childcare centre recently read and painted their way through The Very Hungry Caterpillar, and they love harvesting food from the herb and vegetable gardens we tend at the centre.
What each of these Leichhardt daycare options has in common is Guardian’s commitment to supporting children and their learning.
In fact, children enrolled in any of our Guardian centres spend their days playing and learning in the exciting indoor and outdoor environments, eating nutritious meals and snacks that are prepared by Chefs right on-site with fresh ingredients and seasonal produce, and learning from a play-based curriculum that’s specifically designed to ignite curiosity, discovery, and fun.
Parents can also stay connected to their child’s development and education each and every day through The Learning Exchange and the StoryPark App.
That’s why our nearby Guardian centres are perfect for your Leichhardt child care needs.
