Guardian Childcare & Education Rouse Hill North 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 Rouse Hill North is rated as Exceeding in the National Quality Standard. With a range of exciting and engaging environments – including an outdoor oasis complete with a beautiful tree, herb gardens, cubbyhouse, rock climbing wall, water pump and creek bed – children are encouraged to explore and learn.

The cozy, boutique Centre is also home to our resident bunny, Jack Jack, and guinea pig friends Love and Lola, and features a range of age-specific ateliers where our programs come to life.

We are proud to have a culturally diverse team at Guardian Rouse Hill North, and we celebrate individuality, advocate for inclusion, and support children in learning about the world around them in all its diversity.

Teachers and Educators at Guardian Rouse Hill North also provide wonderful learning programs for the children, including a leading Preschool Program for those preparing for the transition to primary school.

Our on-site chef, Kate, prepares four nutritionally balanced meals using seasonal ingredients every day. Our children thoroughly enjoy helping her peel veggies, taste ingredients, explore the nutritional value of different foods, and participate in the full cooking experience at the kitchen servery window. This helps extend on the children’s knowledge about food, as well as their taste buds!

Children of all ages enjoy regular excursions, building genuine and long-lasting connections with the local community. To bring some delight to their neighbourhood, Guardian Rouse Hill North children recently participated in their local bear hunt – a live-action experience of the book, We’re Going On A Bear Hunt.

We also get out and about regularly, visiting locations such as our neighbouring park, the local shopping complex and the local primary school, which forms an important part of our transition to school programs. We have recently installed home-made birdhouses in many trees in the nature park which has been a wonderful experience for the children. We also partner with a local retirement home and share regular zoom sessions, including reading, signing, artworks and exchanging letters with the residents – a wonderful experience for all involved.

Our Educators

Our team of Educators are committed and passionate about ensuring your child will be safe, nurtured and cared for every day. At Guardian, children are encouraged to engage in interest-led play that creates learning and meaningful experiences.

Our Educators seek to optimise diverse learning opportunities and implement the Curriculum as framed by the Early Years Learning Framework.

You and Your Child

All Guardian Centres provide a Centre-to-Family communication platform so families can maintain contact with their children’s experiences through photos, stories and learning outcomes.

Our Centres use Storypark and each family is provided with a secure login to access on their computers, mobiles or apps.

Learn More About Our Centre

Guardian Childcare & Education Rouse Hill North is located in a lovely, quiet neighbourhood. The benefit of being a small centre, established in the community for 22 years, is the genuine feeling of togetherness and belonging, and that comes from knowing our children and families really well. We understand all the complexities of family life, and our goal is be consistently approachable and to create a supportive network for you.

We welcome children from six weeks to just before they head off to school, liaising closely with local primary schools to develop common goals and strategies to ensure your child’s transition to school is smooth.

The foundation of our learning opportunities is built on real life experiences to delve deeper into each child’s wonderings about their world and each other. We endeavour to help each child become a respectful and passionate learner and an advocate for themselves and others. Families are encouraged to share knowledge about their child to be actively involved in their learning; we value face to face discussions, communication via Storypark, phone calls and emails, monthly newsletters, and offer interviews for more in-depth conversations around summarising and assessing children’s progress against the National Quality Standards.

Our Educators are kind, dedicated and professional, using their intimate knowledge of each and every child to create a fun, inspirational, and educational environment in which children can learn and grow. Our Educational Leader, Mandy, was awarded NSW’s Advocate of the Year at Guardian’s 2019 Awards Night.

Our chef, Kate, was awarded NSW’s Cook of the Year at the 2019 Guardian Awards Night. Kate engages the children in preparing the meals each day, posts helpful hints and recipes for families on Storypark, and spreads her passion about healthy eating throughout our centre.

Taking care of our vegetables and herbs is always exciting; we harvest the basil, rosemary, parsley, kale, lettuce and carrots and the children help Kate prepare these to include in our delicious meals. Our pet rabbit, Jack Jack, and our guinea pigs, Lola & Love, also enjoy munching on our home grown basil and kale.

We are forthcoming with information and updates, and families are encouraged to share knowledge about their child’s learning and progress, and to be actively involved in our programs. Excursions in our local community extend the children’s learning as we buy first aid supplies from the local chemist, enjoy spring rolls at the restaurant in our local shopping village, and enjoy a babycino at the local café. We also take advantage of the park next to our centre where the children can explore and collect, leaves, bark, seed pods, feathers and other natural treasures.

To find out more about our wonderful centre, please contact Melinda, our Centre Manager.
