At Guardian Springfield the children get out and about on regular excursions, which fosters a great connection with the local community. We visit local places such as the parklands for nature walks, the library, F45 gym, Bunnings and the Queensland Museum. These opportunities to get out and about give the children an appreciation for their local community and the people who live there.

We have an incredible on-site cook who prepares five nutritionally balanced meals using seasonal ingredients every day. To further explore food at the Centre our cook and Educators also host cooking classes for the children to get involved in.
