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 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.

More about Guardian Margaret Street expand_more
Guardian Childcare Margaret Street is an early learning centre that services the Sydney CBD and is rated as exceeding the National Quality Standard for childcare, delivering excellent outcomes for children and families.
Guardian Childcare & Education Margaret Street is a cosy home away from home, with three rooms that cater for children from six weeks to six years old. Our partially covered outdoor space enables children to engage with their environment through all seasons—even the wettest of days. The space features a bark garden (add and) vegetable (remove herb) garden (remove and worm farm) as well as a mini rain water tank from which they can access water to care for the gardens. All play spaces are interactive to encourage experimentation and exploration, with a range of tools available to help challenge their thinking.
Children can also look out onto the street to observe the ‘real world’ in action and love to watch (remove the buses and taxis speeding past,) (add the new light rail along George Street, traffic buzzing past) changing traffic lights, busy people rushing to work, and the occasional fire trucks that rush by!
Our childcare centre menu provides balanced and nutritious meals that are prepared fresh using high quality, seasonal ingredients. They adhere to dietary and cultural requirements, and are on a four-week rotating menu that changes to suit the season. Meal times are very social and we use this time to discuss the topic of healthy eating with the children.
If you are thinking of enrolling your child, we offer tours and an orientation program at all of our early learning centres in NSW to help you become more familiar with our team and how we work. We always welcome feedback on how we can improve our service and how we can make life easier for you.
Guardian Margaret Street is rated exceeding in the National Quality Standard, and it’s not hard to see why. Being in the CBD doesn’t mean we’ve compromised on space or outdoor access. In fact, the Centre boasts a range of exciting, resource-rich environments, including an undercover outdoor space, a fort, craft shed, vegetable patches and a range of age-specific play areas, where our exciting programs come to life.
Children at Guardian Margaret Street also get out and about on regular excursions, so we have a great connection with the local community. In addition to visiting our local parks and florist, the children love hosting fundraisers in our building to raise money for the Starlight Foundation, which is a wonderful learning experience for all.
The first five years of your child’s life are incredibly important when it comes to social and emotional development, and setting them up with a love of learning that lasts a lifetime. That’s why at Guardian Margaret Street we’re focused on teaching children how to learn versus just ticking a box.
Read this blog on the benefits of CBD based childcare to understand the many benefits in enrolling your child in a childcare and early learning centre close to your workplace. Some of those benefits include: more time with your child, convenience, unique community excursions, room to move and explore and giving your child the chance to explore the big world around them!
We’re confident our unique approach to combining education, play and care will be the difference you’re looking for.
