"In my view, teachers have the power to support children to learn and develop into becoming adventurous, creative & confident individuals. I value each child’s voice and enjoy scaffolding engaging and resourceful experiences with them. I appreciate the meaning full moments I share with children.
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.

A Day at Arthur Street ….
At Arthur Street our children, families and Educators begin their day with a family breakfast offered from 7am. Our family breakfasts have become a beautiful daily transition ritual where you are welcome to serve the first meal of the day to your child before you head off to work. There is a great vibe during this time as families often take the time to sit and chat with each other which creates a sense of community within the centre.
A familiar Educator from every age group is always ready to welcome your child as they begin their day. By incorporating playful elements and by beginning to establish a trusting relationship with you and your child, our Educators help your child to overcome any distress that they may experience in the initial days of settling into their new space.
Children are learning from birth. Each day there are a variety of experiences designed and planned to encourage our children to explore and learn. We know that play is powerful. As children engage in various play experiences, they will become confident to explore further and to wonder and learn about their world. Our Educators are close by, to support and promote strong positive dispositions for learning and to extend and deepen the learning that quality play experiences provide.
The open nature of learning environment encourages children to develop socially, play independently and also to collaborate with others as they explore, investigate, wonder and imagine. Children move with purpose across indoor and outdoor spaces, choosing and accessing different materials as they become inventors, investigators, scientist, chefs, artists and designers during their play.
Children’s health and wellbeing is our main priority at Arthur Street. Our chef has wonderful relationships with each child and encourages them to have positive associations with food. The four main nutritious meals of the day (breakfast, morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea) are progressive, served straight out of our open kitchen enabling the children to develop positive associations with food and respond to their bodily needs by making independent decisions around what they want to eat.
Our Educators support children as they participate in routines that are smooth, familiar and predictable and meet the needs of each individual child. Routines provide many opportunities for significant learning and for rest and relaxation throughout the day.
We know families want to hear about the learning and fun their children are having with us each day and we share this with you through our wonderful Storypark App. Each child has their own portfolio which is regularly added to by both families and Educators and a reflection with photos is also posted each day, capturing children’s learning across the centre.
These photos often provide a wonderful opportunity for families to communicate with their child about their day and are an invitation for families to have input and share ideas with Educators about their child’s learning and development by leaving a comment or posting a story or photo of their own. At the end of each day, an Educator is always available to share information about your child’s day.
Making the right choice in care and education for your little one is a big decision. Whether you are just starting to look, or are ready to secure a position, we will support you each step of the way.
