At Guardian Sydenham we have a strong focus on community with our out and about program. The program promotes ALL ages 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.  

Our online portfolio program, StoryPark, provides educators with the opportunity to interact with families, sharing information about their child’s daily interactions, and their journey through the learning centre. We pride ourselves on using the Guardian Early Learning Group Curriculum, and a school readiness program, which fits within the Early Years Learning Framework, National Quality Standards, Regulations and the Reggio-Emilia approach to education. 

Our onsite centre chief Tania is dedicated to providing 5 nutritious meals throughout the day. Through conversations with our families 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 get involved in to enhance their understanding of good nutrition. 

Our educators are carefully selected for their passion, expertise and qualification in the early year’s education field and we pride ourselves on the quality of our care and the warm and secure learning spaces we provide. Our centre management are passionate about providing high-quality education and care to the children who attend our learning centre and therefore we welcome any feedback from our families and visitors. Our learning centre also provides necessities such as nappies, wipes, sunscreen and bedding for nap time.

We have had our 3 children at Sydenham Rd since they were around 10 months each. They are now 7yrs- attending vacation care, 4yrs- in the kinder room and 2 yrs- in the Green room. We have loved every minute of being apart of Sydenham Rd. The staff are loving, caring and fun. They know how to make learning fun and interesting. The rooms and out door areas are clean and bright and filled with fantastic educational toys and experiences. We would highly recommend this centre. We will be bring our children here for many more years to come.
As a first time mom, I felt guilty enrolling my then 4 months old son in a childcare so that I can come back to work. Looking back, I realized that it's one of the best decision my husband and I made. Our son is nearly 8 months old now and we never had any problem. The educators and staff have always been wonderful! I can see how much they love and care for the children and families. They always ask for my consent first before introducing anything to my son especially with food. I love how spacious the rooms are for it enables kids to move around and explore. Equipment and toys were always clean and well maintained. The centre follows government guidelines on preventing spread of virus. It also makes my husband and I feel happy and proud whenever they share photos of our son doing fun and educational activities through story park. Our son has definitely progressed well with the help of the educators and he seems very happy! All we have are just positive feedbacks for Guardian Childcare Sydenham and I am happy to recommend it to anyone.
