This is such a beautiful centre. My daughter is about to finish here after 4 1/2 years, and my 2yo is still here. They genuinely care so much about the kids; and put so much effort and thought into activities and interests for the kids. There is great stability of educators, and they are knowledgeable and caring. My kids love it here, and so do I.

Care for Kids review
Thumbs up Would recommend to a friend
I have had my daughter attend Guardian since she was 9 months (currently 17 months). She attended Guardian three days a week at the start and two days at another childcare centre nearby my home residence. In comparison of her attendance simultaneously with Guardian and the other childcare, I was able to differentiate the level of care my daughter received. Where Guardian, communicates directly to us regarding her day, if non-attendance Guardian contacts us to check in on my daughters welfare, when concerns arises with my daughter we are immediately notified even if it may seem not important, and many other little things that are really the big things during our daughter’s development in her early childhood years. She is now attends on full-time basis from June 2020. Although, she stayed home with me during COVID19 as I was working from home. Guardian found ways to engage interaction with Sofya so that she doesn't lose her connection with the staff by inviting her to zoom sessions, reading books, singing and seeing the people and children at the childcare. I simply enjoy the interaction with the staff in discussion of her day at their care and the daily StoryPark update where I am able to see pictures what she has been up to on that day. I highly recommend Guardian childcare for their friendliness, prompt response and ability to provide the best care, the security and appropriateness in their dealings in regards to her daily well-being and etc. I solely want to thank all the staff making me feel comfortable in my journey in raising Sofya after when that uneasiness of transitioning to going back to work after maternity leave. Thank you Rupinder and Maggie for making our daughter feel safe and happy.
