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 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.

There is so much to see, touch, learn and explore at Guardian Childcare & Education St Kilda North!
Our high-quality early childhood centre is conveniently located in the lovely area of Melbourne on St Kilda Road near Albert Park Lake and Fawkner Park.
The centre boasts of remarkable views, overlooking Port Phillip Bay, Albert Park and wonderful views of the city which spark the most incredible conversations with children about our world!
Our modern and light filled centre is equipped with Reggio-Emilia inspired learning materials across seven classrooms, shared active spaces, a shared dining hall, and an open aired rooftop garden. The recently renovated rooftop includes veggie gardens, a water play area, sand and gravel pits and expansive views over the bay and city.
Our babies room features an indoor sandpit along with a variety of open-ended experiences where inquisitive minds can touch, play and learn.
Natural resources, loose parts and recycled materials are used throughout the learning environments to foster creativity, excitement and wonder as the children explore and discover.
Our team of passionate Educators and leaders are committed to creating a welcoming and inclusive environment for all children and families. The educational experiences offered within the rooms reflect the needs, developmental levels and interests of each child and is created in accordance with the Early Years Learning Framework and our own Guardian Curriculum.
Our integrated kindergarten program, run by a Bachelor Qualified Early Childhood Teacher, is dedicated to offering educational, fun and developmentally appropriate classes where each child can learn through play and exploration. The program incorporates incursions, group focused projects and other kinder specific experiences focused on educating children to prepare for their transition to school and life outside of an early childhood environment.
