Guardian Childcare & Education Barangaroo

Guardian Childcare & Education Barangaroo NQS Rated Exceeding by ACECQA

Our centre has been recognised as ‘Exceeding’ the National Quality Standard. This is the highest rating you can receive from a regulatory authority assessment and we are proud to deliver an exceptional service to the children and families who attend our centre.

Guardian Childcare & Education Barangaroo is rated exceeding in the National Quality Standard. Conveniently located in the heart of the Sydney CBD, families can access the highest quality education and care in close proximity to work. Which means less rushing around and more time with your child.

But being in the CBD doesn’t mean we’ve compromised on space or access to the outdoors. The open-plan Centre has a wet/dry creek, bark pit, climbing structures, hills and a range of age-specific play areas where children are encouraged to explore and learn.

Being in the heart of the city, children have access to a number of exciting locations for excursions. We often visit the museum, aquarium, reserve and our local construction crane, which the children are always eager to see.

The Team at Guardian Barangaroo use the family communication app StoryPark to stay connected and ensure families are kept up-to-date about what’s happening in the Centre and what the children have been doing throughout the day. This ongoing partnership promotes continuity of learning.

Children and families also 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.

Our on-site cook prepares five nutritionally balanced meals using seasonal ingredients every day. To further explore food at the centre, our community-minded Educators at Guardian Barangaroo host weekly cooking classes for the children to help enhance their understanding of good nutrition. In fact, they recently hosted a teddy bear’s picnic featuring delicious Lemon Myrtle Teacakes inspired by a visit to the Bush Tucker Garden in Sydney. The children are often involved in the preparation of their menu and enjoy working, cooking and chatting with our chef through the open window to our dedicated kitchen.

More about Guardian Barangaroo

Guardian Childcare Barangaroo is an early learning centre that services the Sydney CBD.  

The team at Guardian Childcare & Education Barangaroo have worked together for two years and are supportive of each other with shared values and goals. Between us we speak Chinese, Spanish, Hindi plus a whole host of other languages and have qualifications over and above the legislative requirements. 

We are focused on building a community, which is especially important for a CBD service such as ours. Families are welcome to join in on our excursions, story time or pop in throughout the day. Our breakfast program invites families to join their children for breakfast, meet other families, spend time with the educators and see their child’s favourite resources, art works and more. 

In further collaboration, the service implements its nutritious food policy through working with families. Educators actively promote healthy eating and eliminate the use of high sugar and salt and use mealtimes for intentional teaching about healthy foods. The centre has an open kitchen where children are able to watch the cooking process and even become involved in the preparation of meals. 

Our regular excursions are a great way for children to connect with the local community. With visits to the Barangaroo reserve, museums, the aquarium, cafes and restaurants, children will experience first hand the people and places of the CBD. 

We know that starting at a new early learning centre can be a daunting time for families, so we provide three to four days of orientation designed to build the relationship between the centre, the family and the child. We’ll work with families to support the transition, discuss where they feel their child is developmentally and agree on where the child’s interests can be supported and challenged. And we will continually work with families to ensure their child is happy and well cared for throughout their time with us. 

The centre provides onsite pram and short-stay car parking to ensure a convenient pick up and drop off. 

Our children at Guardian Barangaroo recently had the honour of celebrating and recognising the local Gadigal Community who are the traditional owners of the land where Barangaroo now stands.  

The children were asked to create two art works that depicted the historical Indigenous culture with the theme of ‘Land’. These artworks were then turned into stencils and painted on the core of the new One Sydney Harbour tower building to live on as part of history – paying respect to the traditional people and their land. 

The artworks will be temporarily visible during the construction phase of the building (for 10-12 weeks). A perfect blank canvas for the children to show off their work for all of Sydney to see. The artwork features on the core of the building, which gives it strength. As the floors of the building are constructed the artworks will be covered, invisible, yet a permanent part of the history of One Sydney Harbour. The artworks will then be reinterpreted as a symbol to feature on the side of the completed building.
