Our Philosophy and Values

Home » Work With Guardian » Our Philosophy and Values

The early years are the most critical stage of a child’s development and we have a responsibility to do all we can to optimise a child’s developmental experience during their time with us. To achieve this our centres employ teams of early childhood educators who:

  • Have a passion for the education of children
  • Hold early childhood qualifications, with a commitment to continuous learning
  • Optimise learning opportunities for our children
  • Offer a diverse cultural experience for our children
  • Enjoy working with a business that is committed to its people and running quality centres

We ensure that our children are safe and respected during every moment of their time with us by:

  • Creating a learning environment within which our children can develop socially, emotionally, cognitively and physically
  • Following the Guardian Curriculum which believes children are global citizens with rights
  • Establishing well maintained, resourced and clean environments in our centres with beautiful soft furnishings that create a home-like atmosphere
  • Striving to successfully implement the National Quality Framework to the highest standards
  • Ensuring the Convention of the Rights of the Child is displayed in the centre and followed by all

We make every effort to model our behaviours on the Guardian values:
