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. 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.

Learn More About Our Centre expand_more
Guardian Childcare & Education Queen Street is a bustling early learning centre on Queen Street and Adelaide Street in the Brisbane CBD. We have relationships with many of the local businesses and offices, making our Centre a safe and secure environment for children in working families.
For children aged four and five years, we have a kindergarten program that ties in with childcare to provide all the benefits of long day care while providing your child with the best possible preparation for primary school.
Some of the key benefits of our kindergarten program are:
- Your child will be developing fundamental skills and knowledge in a learning environment that responds to their needs in a changing world. This means that each child’s unique skills, stage of development, and challenges will be taken into consideration at kindergarten.
- Our kindergarten and preschool curriculums are based on world-leading research and best-practice teaching and deliver on the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) and the National Quality Standards (NQS).
- The program is led by bachelor-degree Teachers and highly experienced educators, meaning you can feel confident that we understand your child, their development, and their learning.
At Guardian Queen Street, we believe that strong connections with the local community are one of the most important aspects of child development. We regularly take the children out on fun and adventurous excursions to the nearby Brisbane River, the Queen Street Mall, The Brisbane City Botanic Gardens, and the local library.
These excursions provide children with the opportunity to interact with the public in a safe and secure setting. Educators help children practice their social skills, build their confidence and develop their independence, ultimately boosting development and providing progress toward key milestones.
Our Centre is conveniently located in the heart of the Brisbane CBD, with plenty of public transport nearby. We can provide the opportunity for families to spend some time with their children on the way to work, dropping them off as they get to the city rather than closer to home. You may also choose to visit your child throughout the day, and we welcome families to drop in and have a chat at lunchtime or at other stages throughout the day.
We make drop-offs and pick-up times a meaningful experience with learning opportunities and the chance to interact with families. These are great times for you to come into the Centre and take a look around the learning environment while exploring the various materials and activities we have for the children.
We’re proud to be a multicultural team, with Educators and Teachers who speak a wide variety of languages other than English. This helps to create a fair and inclusive environment where children feel free and empowered to be themselves and explore their own cultural identities. It also helps children develop an understanding of inclusion and respect for their peers’ differences.
We develop each child’s literacy and numeracy skills to help them feel confident and prepared during the challenging leap into primary school. Our program supports the needs and routines of each of our families, and we ensure each child’s cultural background is supported and encouraged.
As part of our unique Visible Learning Program, families will be able to gain an understanding of their child’s education. Our Learning Exchange Display will provide the opportunity for our Teachers and Educators to share updates on your child’s progress. It will also be a chance for you to have direct input into your child’s learning!
Families will have access to our communication app Storypark, allowing us to share important Centre updates, as well as exciting activities or milestones – ensuring that you remain connected, day-to-day.
Guardian Childcare & Education Queen Street boasts a passionate and experienced team of Educators and Teachers who have a passion for early learning. We work to understand each child’s development and to support them in their learning and growth. If our new childcare centre is near you, consider taking a look at how we can provide a great start to life for your child.
If you travel to the Brisbane CBD for work each day, Guardian Queen Street is a safe, inclusive and fun environment for your children to develop and grow in their first few years of life! Book a tour and meet the team today!
