"I have learnt that we as Educators have a duty to respect, and trust in the children to be an initiator, an explorer, and a self-learner."
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 bring in food and share it with their children at the breakfast table.
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 also invited to join the children for excursions throughout the day 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.

More about Guardian Sunnybank expand_more
Previously known as Jacaranda Childcare centre, Guardian Childcare & Education Sunnybank is an early learning centre that services a number of local areas, including: Springwood, Logan Central, Mount Gravatt, Rocklea and Beenleigh.
At the centre we encourage and use a holistic approach for the children, families, educators and the community. For our children to be, belong and become we foster the values of intentional teaching, love, diversity, respect, equity, kindness and friendship.
As Educators we use intentional teaching and play based learning to enhance every child’s desire to know and learn. We welcome the diversity of our families and the local community and we encourage participation in all aspects of our curriculum. We invite you to share our values and welcome discussion with our experienced educators. Your child will love their day at Guardian Sunnybank with our friendly and passionate team of educators. We have high Educator to child ratios allowing educators and families to work together to ensure a happy and productive time whilst children are in our care.
Our Educators take the time to provide families with up to date information on their child’s day and development progress. Our Educators are selected for their qualifications and expertise in the early childhood field and we pride ourselves on the quality of our care and the warm and secure learning environment we provide.
Your child’s learning and development will benefit greatly from the interaction with educators and other children at the centre. We make sure that our curriculum and school readiness program fits within the Commonwealth Government’s Early Years Learning Framework and National Quality Standards.
Our close partnership with families allows us to offer a range of additional benefits to the learning and childcare experience for the children in our St Kilda South childcare centre. We pride ourselves on the support we offer families and want to help make it a little easier to balance all those daily commitments, through initiatives such as:
- Designated drop off and pick up zones to assist with those busy mornings and afternoons.
- Casual care days where possible to help you manage the unpredictable nature of work life and home life.
- Assisting you with government subsidies and entitlements to help you make the most of the financial support which may be available.
- Our family communication app StoryPark to keep you informed throughout the day with photos, videos and updates about your child
- We hold parent and educator sessions to keep you informed of your child’s individual progress.
- Providing your child with unexpected benefits such as exposure to a range of cultures and languages via our diverse and multi-cultural educator mix.
