Guardian Childcare & Education Springfield

Every day is an opportunity for discovery and growth at Guardian Childcare & Education Springfield, which is rated exceeding in the National Quality Standard. With a range of exciting, resource-rich environments including herb and vegetable gardens, a passionfruit vine, a spacious veranda, natural play structures, and an open-plan atelier, children are encouraged to explore and learn.

We are proud to have a culturally diverse team and celebrate a variety of cultures and holidays throughout the year. We also organise a range of fundraising events for the children to be involved in.

Children get out and about on regular excursions, so we have a great connection with the surrounding community. We visit locations such as our local parklands for nature walks, the library, F45, Bunnings and the Queensland Museum.

Our on-site cook prepares five nutritionally balanced meals using seasonal ingredients every day. To further explore food at the centre our cook and Educators host cooking classes for the children to get involved in.

Learn More About Our Centre

Guardian Childcare and Education Springfield is located at the bottom of the GE corporate building, and looks out over the growing community of Springfield. We pride ourselves on our genuine connections to the community through our regular Nature Walk excursions, connections with the local library and various other initiatives designed to support our children in becoming connected with, and visible within, the community.

Our play spaces are designed to stimulate creativity and imagination, with a wide range of experiences to choose from. The outdoor environment has been carefully landscaped to promote exploration and adventure. Exploration of open ended resources is encouraged through their inclusion across the indoor and outdoor environments. Exploration and engagement with natural resources collected from our community excursions adds complexity to the children’s play. They especially love playing with blocks, lights and sand, and use their imagination to create daily adventures with these materials.

Our on-site cook prepares fresh, nutritious meals each day. The children love learning about where the food comes from and watching how it is prepared.

Our knowledgeable Educators are passionate about their roles. This is reflected in the quality of the programs provided to the children, visibility of learning through authentic and relevant documentation, and genuine interest they take in each and every child and family. We love building connections with the families at our centre, and endeavour to learn as much as we can about them to allow us to prove a high level of care to the children.

Our open-door policy means you are welcome to spend as much time as you like with us, so you can see us in action and gain confidence in the quality of our care.
