Welcome to our Centre

Guardian Childcare & Education Phillip Street is conveniently located in the heart of the Sydney CBD. Our location means families can access the highest quality education and care in close proximity to work. All with less rushing around and more time with your child.
But being a child care centre in the CBD doesn’t mean we’ve compromised on space or outdoor access. In fact, the 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 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 Guardian Phillip Street children and families have the added benefit of a 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, and 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 visit our Centre.
Supported by a dedicated team of university-qualified Teachers and Educators, our Sydney CBD early learning 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. This community spirit was also on display when the children at Guardian Phillip Street developed a Pen Pal Program and Zoom meetings with their friends at home during COVID-19 to help keep them connected to others.
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. The children chat with the cook throughout the day and enjoy helping push the food trolleys at mealtimes.

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 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.

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.
