“There’s nothing quite like the look on a child’s face, when they discover something new and for the very first time. I love being able to share in this moment with them.”
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.

More about Guardian Phillip Street expand_more
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 education. We love seeing our children excited to return each day!
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 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 take 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. And we work closely with children and families to develop a sense of responsibility to care for the environment.
