My son is happy and healthy here. The educators are kind and compassionate and fill his days with fun and have the right mixture of play and learning, exploring his interests. Communication is good I like the app where I get photos and updates about his day from time to time.

After visiting a number of Childcare centres in the area, I knew as soon as I walked in this was the one. Staff are super friendly, management keeps you informed and the nursery rooms are clean. Educators are always willing to provide an update about my daughters day and if there is an incident no matter how minor they always call which I appreciate. Daughter always comes home clean which is pretty impressive. Highly recommend this daycare.

The communication about my sons learning is clear and visible. I like how there has been active community engagement being made through the spring lake walks that has started in the younger age groups. The team has been consistent since opening so that relationships can be maintained.

As soon as I walked into Guardian Springfield Lakes I knew that it was where I wanted my child to attend. The experience we have had has been outstanding. The educators care about the children and you feel so much joy from the centre. We are warmly greeted each day when we walk in wether it be by Hayley, Dani or Jemma. My child’s educators Emma, Kiki and Chloe always go above and beyond and I love seeing what they have been up to during the day via the daily storypark posts.
