Guardian Childcare & Education Hornsby NQS Rated Exceeding by ACECQA

Our centre has been recognised as ‘Exceeding’ the National Quality Standard. This is the highest rating you can receive from a regulatory authority assessment and we are proud to deliver an exceptional service to the children and families who attend our centre.

Guardian Childcare & Education Hornsby is rated exceeding in the National Quality Standard. The Centre boasts a range of incredible environments to inspire young minds and bodies, including a water pump, vegetable gardens, creek bed and a range of age-specific play areas.

At Guardian Hornsby, children and families also have the added benefit of a leading Preschool Program led by quality teachers who are there to help prepare your child for the exciting transition to school.

Centre Manager Natalie shares why she loves working at Guardian Hornsby: “Every day is different, and there is so much to learn from the children as well as teach them. I like the quiet moments of reflection with children where they might share a fact you have taught them or the conversations over meal times where they are relaxed, and we can share a bit of who were are with each other as people. As a Centre, I believe we make a difference in children, and that excites me. The early years are so important and to be able to guide children in that first step of their life long journey is very rewarding to be a part of and share with our families.”

We are proud to have a culturally diverse team of Educators and celebrate a variety of cultures and holidays, including Nowruz and Chinese New Year. Our community-focused team organise bi-monthly BBQs and regular afternoon tea events that our families love attending.

Kids Gourmet Food, an esteemed catering company, delivers three fresh meals daily, in addition to two meals our team prepare each morning. The children and their educators enjoy venturing into the Centre’s garden to gather ingredients to use in cooking classes which extend on the children’s’ knowledge of nutrition and encourages them to try new foods.

Learn More About Our Centre

At Guardian Childcare & Education Hornsby we pride ourselves in building a community of learners as children, families and Educators connect together to support children’s learning and development. We are passionate in welcoming a variety of cultures and backgrounds to our centre.

Our diverse range of qualified Educators respect and care for each individual child as we help them develop into capable and confident members of the wider community. Many of our Educators are fluent in a second language with these including Cantonese, Hindi, Mandarin and Persian providing us with the opportunity to support the families within our wider community.

Guardian Hornsby offers a comprehensive educational program based on all areas of development including literacy and numeracy. Our practices and programs help prepare your child for formal schooling and beyond. The big issues facing future generations will require them to be innovative and adaptable – to think creatively and critically, and to find solutions which include the multiple perspectives of social, environmental, political, economic and cultural thinking. As part of this, we work to develop skills that will help children to thrive in the 21st Century. These are called 21st Century skills and encompass the following areas:

  • Creativity and innovation
  • Collaboration and teamwork
  • Critical thinking and problem solving
  • Communication

Learning is a journey that never ends and our learning experiences at Hornsby are planned by our qualified educators based on the needs and interests of individual and groups of children

Our outdoor space offers a large undercover area to allow children to enjoy the outdoors all year round. Our outdoor environment encourages sensory, messy and exploratory play. This provides children with a great opportunity to make their own discoveries using their senses, curiosity and knowledge as children engage in the sandpit, mud pit, water creek and bark area.

Situated on a residential street near Hornsby Hospital we pride ourselves in building connections for children and families within business in the local community by welcome them to the centre or taking children on excursions to visit them. Come and have a look for yourself by taking a tour of our centre.
