Rhythm of The Day
With endless possibilities, there’s never a dull moment at Guardian and no two days are the same. Here’s what a day at Guardian might look like. Please note, this will vary depending on centre opening hours.
Handover time with children, families and our friendly Educators. There’s a chance to share what’s important for the day and any news from home.
Breakfast time where families are welcome to stay and enjoy breakfast with the children.
An opportunity to play and discover with open-plan play in family groups and multi-age groupings.
Planned experiences. This is where the Guardian difference comes to life. Alongside our Educators your child’s exploration leads to learnings in numeracy, literacy, language, critical thinking, problem solving, leadership, social skills, technology, creative arts and much more.
An opportunity for children to come together for a healthy snack, often they help prepare their food alongside our carers and cook.
Individually tailored to your child’s needs and curiosity the planned experiences continue, this includes both indoor and outdoor programs.
Another nutritious meal expertly prepared by our cook. Families are invited to join the children for meals and excursions if they wish.
If your child wants to, or needs to sleep, it’s time to rest and recharge. For children who don’t need to rest the planned experiences continue, in most cases outdoors.
Another chance for the children to come together and re-fuel in small groups or with siblings. There is also an opportunity to rest or play together and reflect on the day.
As you arrive to pick up your child, there’s a chance to speak with our Educators and share news about the day. Our Storypark App also allows you to stay in touch 24/7 wherever you are.
End of day
Your child is encouraged to grab a light snack before they leave the centre. We’re mindful of how routines vary, throughout the day if we notice your child looking tired food will be provided.

Learn More About Our Centre expand_more
Guardian Balmain Cove early learning centre is designed to replicate the comfort of a family-style environment where our Educators create a warm and loving atmosphere for each and every child. Well-designed interior spaces and a large outdoor space mean there is plenty of room for your children to explore and grow.
The Centre, located at 35 Terry Street Rozelle, provides occasional care and exceptional early childhood education services for families in Balmain, Balmain East, Lilyfield, Drummoyne, and Haberfield.
We’re passionate about preparing our children to be the big thinkers of the future, so our values are centred around providing them with positive attitudes towards humanity and democracy. We teach these values to the children through play-based learning, often led by the child. Our child care centre is filled with bright, stimulating materials that encourage children to explore and engage their curiosity to discover more about the exciting world around them.
We have four rooms tailored for child-led learning as they grow and each child can enjoy indoor or outdoor play, based on their needs and interests. We love to bring special guests and new experiences into the centre for the children to engage with and explore. We also value our connections with the community and children of all ages regularly attend excursions out into our local community.
Our Nursery has all the comforts of home with equipment and learning materials specific to the development and learning needs of children between six weeks and 18 months of age. We delight in watching your children gain confidence in what they have learnt as babies and then expand on their skills and knowledge.
Our Junior Toddler and Senior Toddler rooms facilitate each child’s learning based on their interests as they discover their independence through our Preschool Room where children have a sense of ownership of the room and contribute to the curriculum whilst continuing their day-to-day routine.
Through our preschool program, children have the opportunity to learn some of the skills that are often only introduced in early primary school. We begin learning and exploring shapes, numbers and letters through fun, play-based activities.
We develop each child’s literacy and numeracy skills to help them feel confident and prepared during the challenging leap into primary school. Our program supports the needs and routines of each of our families, and we ensure each child’s cultural background is supported and encouraged.
As part of our unique Visible Learning Program, families will be able to gain an understanding of their child’s education. Our Learning Exchange Display will provide the opportunity for our Teachers and Educators to share updates on your child’s progress. It will also be a chance for you to have direct input into your child’s learning!
Why not come and meet the team and have a look around our Centre today? We’d love to show you why Guardian Balmain Cove is the perfect learning environment for your child. At Guardian, we believe that together, we can create life-long learners.
We look forward to welcoming you soon!
