“I highly value maintaining partnerships with families to gather the individual needs of each child in my care.”
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 chef.
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 chef. 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. 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 as 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
Caring for the environment is a big passion for a lot of our children, and they enjoy taking on outdoor responsibilities like watering the plants and tending to the garden. They take pride in watching things grow, and this helps to create a feeling of responsibility and belonging.
Our wonderful cook makes nutritious, home-style meals, using fresh ingredients from the garden where possible. The children love visiting the kitchen to watch the cook in action! Our menu has been reviewed by Nutrition Australia, which ensures all the daily requirements are being met. Bake sales are always a fun experience, with all proceeds going directly to the Starlight Foundation.
We believe in treating children as individuals, and encourage them to create their own learning experiences under the guidance of our friendly and engaging educators. Open communication helps to build strong relationships with families, and this begins before your child’s first day. New families are encouraged to attend orientation prior to the start date in order to meet our team and become familiar with the centre.
Once in our care, our open door policy means you are always welcome to come and visit your child. There are many opportunities to see the learning that takes place each day, and you can also book discussion times with an educator to develop shared goals for your child.
To find out more about what we have to offer, please contact our friendly team.
