Guardian Childcare & Education Market Street (Queens View)

Guardian Childcare & Education Market Street (Queens View) is located in the Sydney CBD. This convenient location means families can access the highest quality education and care in close proximity to work. That means less rushing around in the morning and evenings, and more time with your child.

Being in the CBD doesn’t mean we’ve compromised on space our outdoor access. In fact, the Centre has a range of exciting, resource-rich environments including herb and vegetable gardens, city viewing platforms, a wooden castle and a range of multi-age spaces where children are encouraged to explore and learn. And the first thing you will notice when you step foot in the Centre is the incredible view of the historic Queen Victoria Building, otherwise known as QVB.

But our Centre is more than just a pretty space, as you can read in our blog.

The Teachers and Educators at Guardian Market Street provide wonderful learning programs for the children, including a leading Preschool Program for those preparing for the transition to primary school. The Guardian Market Street Educators are a dedicated team who have been with the Centre for many years. We are proud of our culturally diverse team and celebrate a variety of cultures and holidays throughout the year, including Holli and Diwali.

The children are fortunate to get out and about on weekly excursions in the local thriving community, visiting Abby’s Bookstore, the QVB, the koi pond under our building, Hyde Park and surrounding businesses. And our on-site cook prepares five nutritionally balanced meals using seasonal ingredients every day and often includes the children in hands-on cooking experiences to teach them about nutrition and wellbeing.

Sustainability is a huge focus at Guardian Market Street (Queens View) with a dedicated sustainability educator who has developed a sustainability plan that includes a veggie patch, worm farm and native Australian plants. The children take on the responsibility of taking care of and watering the gardens, which has even resulted in a few vegetables that make their way into the Centre kitchen.

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

Queens View Early Learning Centre is located in the heart of the city, with a large outdoor play space that offers amazing views of Sydney Tower and the Queen Victoria Building. The children love to play outside on the open-air deck, where they can take in the sights and sounds of the bustling city around them.

The buddy program at our early learning centre partners older children with younger children to help them develop their self-help skills such as feeding, cleaning up, creating games and more.

Connecting to the community around them, children will engage in a variety of activities such as visiting a local fruit shop in the morning, helping in fundraising activities for a number of charities, or popping in to Darling View Early Learning Centre — our ‘sister centre’ located right next door — or visiting one of our other education and childcare centres in the Sydney CBD.

Our relationships with families are important to us and we encourage families to meet with us during the year to develop shared goals for their child, and to enjoy our breakfast and afternoon tea events with other families. Our door is always open, and you are welcome to come by or phone us at any time throughout the day.

Our wonderful cook prepares nutritious meals that are as healthy as they are delicious, and the children love to eat alfresco with their friends on the outdoor deck. Scones are a favourite, and are in such high demand that we created a cookbook to share the recipe with families!

Coming along on a tour and Orientation Day before your child enrols is a great way to get to know our Educators, and to get a feel for our kindergarten.

Looking for something a little closer to work? We have plenty of early learning and childcare centres in Sydney, so even if you change jobs or move offices, there’ll always be a centre within close reach.
