Guardian’s leadership team is made up of leading early childhood professionals with many years of combined experience in the sector and other industries. This team guides the business and our centres.
In 2010 Wolsely Private Equity invested in Guardian, providing capital to improve the quality of our existing centres and to fund the group’s continued growth. Navis Capital subsequently acquired a majority interest in the group in 2013 from Wolsely and became our major shareholder. As of February 2016, Partners Group has agreed to acquire the controlling stake in Guardian Early Learning Group with the deal expected to close in the first quarter of 2016.
