Our little one looooves her daycare. Being our first daycare experience, the team at Guardian really went out of their way to make the transition as easy as possible for her and for us (despite being exclusively breastfed, contact nap kind of baby). They really set the standard high when it comes to genuine care, great communication with us, thought through educational activities as well as free and outdoor play and retaining that connection to nature as much as possible within the city setting. The amazing food and cooking experiences have also been such a highlight for her (thank you Philip!). We can't recommend the center highly enough.

Our son has been at Guardian Philip street since he was 1. We have been impressed at how quickly it became his second home and how easily he bonded with the staff and other children. The educators are professional, accessible and transparent. We have also appreciated their total support in our decision to use cloth nappies. Would definitely recommend.

Carers and staff are very friendly and passionate. At pick up, staff are transparent with how the day went and provide regular feedback on improving the child's experience at the centre. Photos show that daily activities for the children are new and engaging experiences that develop their skills at an age-appropriate level.

The Guardian Phillip Street Centre has been a home away from home for our daughter, who has attended the centre from 12 months old. The educators at the centre are extremely competent and always have a warm and friendly demeanour. The centre manager is pragmatic and thoughtful. The chef is wonderful and cooks all kinds of delicacies for the children. Our daughter is so happy at the centre, has made many friends and is thriving in the environment created by the Phillip Street staff. We feel really blessed to have enrolled our daughter here and would (and do!) recommend it to all families!

I honestly can't give enough praises to this childcare centre!SInce the beginning of our journey, with my daughter starting care at only 6 months, the team of educators have gone above and beyond for me and my family. They are so dedicated and even check in on the children's progress on their days off work.I think they realised straight away that me - as a first-time-mum -would need a lot more guidance/attention than my 6 month old daughter would. I am still breastfeeding and throughout the past months the educators have made sure i always have a quiet spot to feed my baby and they give me a call each day to let me know when she is up for her lunchtime feed.Additionally we also get daily posts and pictures on the storypark app and the occasional one-on-one video all visible to my family abroad who absolutely love feeling part of our daughter's journey in the centre on the other side of the world.She is absolutely thriving and so incredibly stimulated every single day. We simply cannot give her the same attention and learning experiences at home and feel very humbled by all the love and one-on-one cuddles our little girl receives every day.I truly cannot recommend this centre and their dedicated loving management, chef and educators highly enough.

My son joined Phillip Street in early 2021 and in this time, we have come to love this small community. The team are dedicated about quality and consistency, which is reflected across all spaces. There is always a range of learning experiences happening and from the moment my son arrives, to the time he goes home – I can see just how much he is learning each day. The cook provides a range of healthy and tasty meals for the children throughout the day, and often a little take home snack for us busy families as well. The educators share daily updates and write personalised stories for my son, showcasing what he learns, where his interests are and ideas for us to continue on with him at home. Phillip Street has certainly proven to be the right community for us and we highly recommend it for anyone else looking for care and education needs.

I strongly recommend the service to any parents working in the city. The quality of care has been excellent and our son, albeit very young, seemed to enjoy every moment of it. Educators also take the time to write personal notes about each child on Storypark (platform for parents) at the end of each day, which is very thoughtful.

I have both a toddler and a preschooler at this school. The educators are all extremely kind to the children and my kids love exploring the city on their many excursions. Would highly recommend to anyone working or living in the area. They have new initiatives constantly (such as learning Spanish with the kids), which also makes the daycare exceptional.

Our daughter has been here once a week between the ages of approximately 9 and 14 months. It’s an amazing child care service - so much better than the one she goes to near our house which is unfortunately so much more convenient! Excellent healthy food, daily photo updates, great activities and facilities and kind staff. Thank you for an excellent service. Michael and Sian

Our 14 month old daughter has been attending casually at the centre since she was 11 months old and despite not attending regularly, is always happy to attend and has a great time thanks to the excellent staff.Rhiannon the centre manager is very efficient and responsive on email communication.The nursery room staff are wonderful: they really get to know each child and follow individual sleep/feed etc routines. The thought and effort that goes into planing a varies of daily activities is impressive: not just sitting around with toys, but lots of educational (but fun) activities.The resident chef and daily meals are better than what you could ever make at home.The physical space is warm and inviting. Low tables and chairs, a very kid-level and calm environment, despite the city location.The use of the StoryPark app to provide updates and photos on the kids activities at the end of each day (including a summary of their eating, drinking and sleeping) is a great way of having a sense of what your child is getting up to and how they are travelling each day.But for our work at home arrangements and long commute to the city, we would very happily send our daughter here every day.

Our daughter has been at this centre for over a year and absolutely loves attending each day. The range and quality of activities that the kids undertake is great and its evident that they are planned around learning and development theory. The carers are wonderful with the kids (and parents) and I can trust that my little one will be well taken care of each day.

Our son has been enrolled in the nursery since the start of this year (at 12 months) and I can’t give enough praise for this centre and their carers! The centre is vibrant and clean and so well kept, so many activities and toys, he has a ball. The carers are incredible and my son practically leaps from my arms each morning to go and play - he has made amazing friends and they provide daily photos and updates. Really can’t speak highly enough of our positive experience with the Phillip St team

Our daughter has been going to the centre when she was 3.5 years old, and it has been a wonderful experience for us.. She has shown improvements in speaking and loves going to the centre. After 3 months there, she can write her own name! She used to have trouble in sitting down and reading books, now she loves reading books! Great outdoor area and most importantly the educators are wonderful, very caring and loving. When our daughter was sick, Helene the centre manager called & checked on us which we really appreciate. I also love the meals are cooked fresh everyday in their own kitchen. Centre is clean, tidy and has great resources. They also take the children out to the state library, botanical garden, martin place and involve families in the children learning experience. I could go on continue writing great things about The Pavilion, I am very glad that our daughter can find a second home while mum and dad are working.. Nothing makes parents more relief than seeing her child is happy and safe, thank you Helene Erin Lisa Lili Lizzy and The Pavilion team in making that happen :)

Welcome to our Centre

Rated ‘Exceeding’ in the National Quality Standards

Guardian Childcare & Education Phillip Street is conveniently located in the heart of the Sydney CBD. Our central city location means busy working families in the city can access the highest quality education and care close to work. All with less rushing around and more time with your child.

But being a child care centre in Sydney CBD doesn’t mean we’ve compromised on space or outdoor access. In fact, our Phillip St early learning centre has a range of exciting, resource-rich environments including herb gardens, a spacious outdoor area, a dirt pit, and a range of age-specific studios where children are encouraged to explore and learn.

Children are supported through those important early years to explore and develop their social and emotional skills through their early learning journey by a dedicated team of university-qualified Teachers and passionate Educators. They create learning experiences in a nurturing environment that fosters creativity and imagination in a safe environment for young age groups.

Our early childhood Educators understand the importance of building strong relationships with families to provide a secure learning environment for all children across each age group. They support and encourage children to learn problem-solving and develop self-confidence and social skills based on genuine care and high-quality learning environments.

At our Guardian Phillip Street childcare centre, children have the added benefit of a two-year Preschool Program led by quality teachers who are there to help prepare your child for the exciting transition to school. The specialist program offers an early learning curriculum in line with the Early Years Learning Framework, and National Quality Standards, all with the additional benefits of long day care. We focus on each individual child and ensuring each child feels safe and secure to learn and grow.

Eligible children who turn 4 years old on or before 31 July 2024 will receive up to $2,110 in additional subsidies. This fee support is on top of any Child Care Subsidy eligible families may be receiving. If your child is 3 years old and not yet 4 years old on, or before 31 July in 2024 and is enrolled at our Centre, you will receive up to $500 in fee relief. Ask us for more information when you take a tour of our Centre! 

Supported by a dedicated team of university-qualified Teachers and Educators, our Sydney CBD long daycare centre provides an inclusive learning environment where children are supported to be bold, creative, and curious in their learning journey.

Since opening, our passionate team of Educators have been building relationships with the surrounding community and often take the children to visit local landmarks such as Hyde Park, the Botanical Gardens and Martin Place.

Our on-site Cook prepares all nutritionally balanced meals and snacks using seasonal ingredients every day. To further explore food at the Centre, our community-focused Educators host cooking classes for the children to get involved in to enhance their understanding of good nutrition.

Begin your learning journey at Guardian Childcare & Education Phillip Street today by booking a tour to explore the Centre or speaking to one of our team.

Learn More About Out Centre

Guardian Childcare Phillip Street (formerly The Pavillion) is an early learning centre that services the Sydney CBD.

Guardian Childcare & Education Phillip Street is located in the centre of Martin Place, less than 100 metres from Martin Place Train Station. We enjoy views of nearby Sydney Tower from our outdoor space, which is an open-air environment.

Our smaller size means we offer a wonderful family atmosphere and can create strong bonds with each and every child and their family. We aim to create an atmosphere that is warm and welcoming, where children receive the best quality care and early childhood education. We love seeing our children excited to return each day!

We strive to provide the highest quality of education and care for your children. Our innovative teaching methods are designed to help our young learners develop their skills in a safe, fun and stimulating environment. We believe that early education should be creative and fun.

Our Educators and Teachers are warm and welcoming and are experienced in providing children with a safe, secure environment to grow and develop freely in their first few years. Our childcare Centre features multiple spacious rooms filled with beautiful colours and natural lights. There are plenty of fun and stimulating materials around the Centre to keep the children engaged and to inspire them to explore their childcare environment.

We believe in fostering autonomy in the children and allow them to choose activities that best suit their own unique interests. We aim to develop independent, capable young learners with a strong sense of enthusiasm and curiosity to explore the world around them.

We love taking the children on exciting excursions in the local community, like boarding fire trucks at the local station or spotting dinosaurs at the Australian Museum. We also visit our local florist to collect fresh flowers each week. Back in our centre, the children love and care for our outdoor edible garden, and collecting items for use in their meals.

Whether you are a new or existing family in our service, our educators will spend quality time with you to help build a strong level of trust and to understand how we can best support the unique needs of your child.

With seven incredible locations across the Sydney CBD, there’s a Guardian Centre to suit your busy family lifestyle and location. Our Centres in Barangaroo, George Street, Bligh Street, Margaret Street, Phillip Street and two Market Street locations mean access to the highest quality education and care for your child in close proximity to your workplace. Which means less rushing around and more time with your child.

Guardian Phillip Street is conveniently located in the heart of the Sydney CBD and has a range of exciting, resource-rich environments including herb gardens, a spacious outdoor area, a dirt pit, and a range of age-specific studios where children are encouraged to explore and learn.

Since opening, our team of Educators have been building relationships with the surrounding community and often takes the children to visit local landmarks such as Hyde Park, the Botanical Gardens and Martin Place.

Our on-site cook prepares four nutritionally balanced meals using seasonal ingredients every day. To further explore food at the Centre, our community-focused Educators host cooking classes for the children to get involved in to enhance their understanding of good nutrition.

Our Preschool Program is delivered by teachers with specialist early childhood university degrees, with all the benefits of long day care flexibility for families. We work closely with children and families to develop a sense of responsibility to care for the environment.

Nothing makes parents more relief than seeing her child is happy and safe, thank you Helene Erin Lisa Lili Lizzy and The Pavilion team in making that happen :)
