Guardian Childcare & Education Coorparoo
(Formerly Hopscotch House)
Every day is an opportunity for discovery and growth at Guardian Childcare & Education Coorparoo (formerly Hopscotch House). With a range of exciting, resource-rich environments including a vegetable garden, chickens, a cubby house, a mud pit and a range of age-specific ateliers, children are encouraged to explore and learn.
The light-filled and spacious centre has a mix of indoor and outdoor learning environments – including two kindergarten programs – and boasts an exciting sustainability program that all the children love participating in.
With a variety of cultures amongst the Guardian Childcare & Education Coorparoo team, we love exploring cultural differences as well as embracing various holidays and celebrations throughout the year.
Our on-site cook, Elaine, prepares five nutritionally balanced meals using seasonal ingredients every day. Elaine has a wealth of experience, having trained in London as a chef, and working in the childcare sector for a number of years. She looks forward to creating additional experiences for the children to explore food at the centre.

Take a Look Around
Rhythm of The Day
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 to share what’s important for the day and any news from home.
Breakfast time where families are welcome to stay and enjoy breakfast with the children.
An opportunity to play and discover with open-plan play in family groups and multi-age groupings.
Planned experiences. This is where the Guardian difference comes to life. Alongside our Educators your child’s exploration leads to learnings in numeracy, literacy, language, critical thinking, problem solving, leadership, social skills, technology, creative arts and much more.
An opportunity for children to come together for a healthy snack, often they help prepare their food alongside our carers and chef.
Individually tailored to your child’s needs and curiosity the planned experiences continue, this includes both indoor and outdoor programs.
Another nutritious meal expertly prepared by our chef. Families are invited to join the children for meals and excursions if they wish.
If your child wants to, or needs to sleep, it’s time to rest and recharge. For children who don’t need to rest the planned experiences continue, in most cases outdoors.
Another chance for the children to come together and re-fuel in small groups. There is also an opportunity to rest or play together and reflect on the day.
As you arrive to pick up your child, there’s a chance to speak with our Educators and share news about the day. Our Storypark App also allows you to stay in touch 24/7 wherever you are.
End of day
Your child is encouraged to grab a light snack as they leave the centre. We’re mindful of how routines vary, throughout the day if we notice your child looking tired food will be provided.

What Our Families Say
“It’s not easy to leave your child in the care of someone else, however, from day one I can comfortably say that your staff have always provided the best care for both my children. I always see all the great things they do with the children but most importantly they are always there to comfort the children and take such great care of them.”
– Ivana Dusenjko, Mickleham Road, Vic
"The transition into childcare was made easy by the supportive and compassionate staff. Daily communication (both email and verbal) kept me up to date with my daughter's progress socially, emotionally and intellectually. The 'child centred' approach is amazing; for my child to make connections to her own world and experiences. She loves going.”
– Sarah Collingwood, Jacaranda – Sunnybank, Qld
"“The team are passionate about being early childhood Educators. The environment is filled with many indoor and outdoor activities allowing a child-led development by following their natural interests (inspired by Reggio Emilia). A philosophy we follow in our home. My four-year-old daughter’s language and social skills have improved greatly.””
– Angela K, Lane Cove, NSW
