- Monthly awards for team members who show exceptional effort because positivity is contagious
- Thank You Thursday posts on Workplace so that team members can thank each other directly for awesome work

As a contributing member of our team, you deserve to feel appreciated, so we do what it takes to help you feel that way.
PERSONAL AND FAMILY SUPPORT
Get the personal and family support you need
Working at Guardian means more than just receiving a paycheck. We also offer several programs to give you the personal and family support you need to live a comfortable lifestyle.
We understand that the cost of childcare is an important consideration for working parents, so we provide an affordable childcare option with generous discounts. Our program lowers your childcare fees based on years of service at the day care centre of your choice and is in addition to any childcare subsidies you receive, so it noticeably lowers your childcare expenses.
As a member of our team, you’ll also have access to:
- Our Employee Assistance Program (EAP) where team members and their immediate family members get free and confidential support for work-life stressors, family issues, financial concerns, relationship problems, and even drug or legal concerns
- Novated Lease arrangements to reduce the cost of buying and running a car
With our personal and family support programs, you can be sure that you and your immediate family will be well taken care of.
Get the support you need. Call us today at 1300 765 560.
PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT AND EDUCATION
Take your career to the next level
At Guardian, we believe in lifelong learning for both the children we care for and the team members we employ. But, we also understand that you may need some extra time and support to successfully take your career to the next level.
To help you get there, we offer assistance and mentorship programs for all team members who qualify.
So, whether you’re interested in a traineeship position while you earn your Certificate III or you’re working towards a Bachelor of Education degree or our nationally accredited Diploma in Early Childhood Education, you will receive support in your endeavours from Guardian.
We also offer tons of professional development opportunities that are self-paced and online—allowing you to choose which courses you’re interested in taking based on your career and personal goals.
Furthermore, we also provide the incredible opportunity for Educators to travel to Italy for a Reggio Emilia study tour so they can further their understanding of our unique approach to early learning.
FLEXIBLE WORK OPTIONS
Receive the flexibility you’re looking for
But when it comes to the childcare employee benefits that many of our team members appreciate the most, it’s the flexible work options that we offer.
At Guardian, we understand that everyone has personal and family obligations outside of employment, so we make it as easy as possible for you to find a flexible work option that meets your current needs, including:
Whatever your schedule looks like, our flexible work options allow you to earn a competitive wage, have the childcare employee benefits you need, and see that your other responsibilities are covered at the same time.
