Margaret Street Early Learning Centre

Every day is an opportunity for discovery and growth at Margaret Street Early Learning Centre, which is rated exceeding in the National Quality Standard. With a range of exciting, resource-rich environments including, an undercover outdoor space, a forte, a craft shed, vegetable patches and a range of age-specific ateliers where our exciting programs come to life.

Children get out and about on regular excursions, so we have a great connection with the surrounding community. In addition to visiting our local parks and florist, the children love hosting fundraisers in our building to raise money for the Starlight Foundation.

With a community-minded team of Educators who have been with the centre for a long time, we are proud to have a culturally diverse team and celebrate a variety of cultures and holidays including Chinese New Year.

Our on-site cook prepares five nutritionally balanced meals using seasonal ingredients every day. To further explore food at the centre, our Educators host cooking classes for the children to get involved in to enhance their understanding of good nutrition and improve their fine motor skills.

Our Educators

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.

Learn More About Our Centre

Margaret Street Early Learning Centre is a cosy home away from home, with three rooms that cater for children from six weeks to six years old. Our partially covered outdoor space enables children to engage with their environment through all seasons—even the wettest of days. The space features a bark garden, herb garden and worm farm, as well as a mini rain water tank from which they can access water to care for the gardens. All play spaces are interactive to encourage experimentation and exploration, with a range of tools available to help challenge their thinking. Children can also look out onto the street to observe the ‘real world’ in action and love to watch the buses and taxis speeding past, changing traffic lights, busy people rushing to work, and the occasional fire trucks that rush by!

Our childcare centre menu provides balanced and nutritious meals that are prepared fresh using high quality, seasonal ingredients. They adhere to dietary and cultural requirements, and are on a four-week rotating menu that changes to suit the season. Meal times are very social and we use this time to discuss the topic of healthy eating with the children.

If you are thinking of enrolling your child, we offer tours and an orientation program at all of our early learning centres in NSW to help you become more familiar with our team and how we work. We always welcome feedback on how we can improve our service and how we can make life easier for you.
