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 for conversation to share what's important for the day/what's happened the night before at home.
Breakfast time where families are welcome to stay and enjoy breakfast with the children.
As children are arriving and families are coming and going, there's an opportunity for play as well as family grouping, open-plan play and multi-age grouping.
As the children come together, planned experiences begin. This is where the Guardian programs and practices come to life. Examples of learning include numeracy, literacy, language, critical thinking, problem solving, leadership, social skills, technology, science, creative arts, curiosity and more.
There's an opportunity for children to come together and enjoy morning tea.
Following morning tea, the planned experiences continue. This includes both indoor and outdoor programs.
There's an opportunity for children to come together for lunch. With an open-door policy, families are able to join the centre for meals and excursion if they wish.
For children who want to, or need to, there's an opportunity to sleep, rest or relax. For children who don't need to rest, there are planned experiences, which are more likely to be outdoors.
Children come together for afternoon tea in small groups or with siblings (they can also rest and play together, too). This time also presents an opportunity to reflect on the day.
End of the day
As families arrive to pick up children, there's an opportunity to speak to Educators and share information about the day.
End of the day
Some centres offer early tea or light snack at the end of the day, which they can grab as they leave the centre. We’re mindful of how routines vary at home, so if throughout the day, we notice children look tired, food will be provided.
Open 7:00am to 6:00pm
Monday to Friday
Our team of Educators are committed and passionate about ensuring your child will be safe, nurtured and cared for every day. At Guardian, children are encouraged to engage in interest-led play that creates learning and meaningful experiences.
Our Educators seek to optimise diverse learning opportunities and implement the Curriculum as framed by the Early Years Learning Framework.
All Guardian Centres provide a Centre-to-Family communication platform so families can maintain contact with their children’s experiences through photos, stories and learning outcomes.
Our Centres use Storypark and each family is provided with a secure login to access on their computers, mobiles or apps.
Playdays Preschool and Long Day Care Centre – Rouse Hill is located in a lovely, quiet neighbourhood. The benefit of being a small centre is we enjoy a wonderful rapport that comes from knowing our children and families really well. We welcome children from 6 weeks to just before they head off to school. We liaise closely with the local Primary School, developing common goals and strategies, ensuring your child’s transition to school is smooth.
The foundation of our learning opportunities is built on real life experiences to delve deeper into each child’s wonderings about their world and each other. We endeavour to help each child become a respectful and passionate learner and citizen.
Taking care of our vegetables and herbs is always exciting; we harvest the basil, chives, parsley, kale, lettuce and carrots and our Little Chefs help prepare these to include in our delicious meals. Our pet rabbit, Bun Bun, and our guinea pigs, Sparkly & Freddy, also enjoy munching on our home grown basil and kale. We also take advantage of the park where the children can explore and collect, leaves, bark, seed pods, feathers and other natural treasures.
Our educators are kind, dedicated and professional. They use their intimate knowledge of each and every child to create a fun, inspirational, and educational environment in which children can learn and grow. Families are encouraged to share knowledge about their child to be actively involved in their learning.
We are always forthcoming with information about our centre and your child’s learning and progress, and we welcome family involvement in our service. Meals provided are nutritionally balanced and are made from scratch by our on-site cook. The children even help to make afternoon tea three times a week!
