Guardian Childcare & Education Springfield


Guardian Childcare & Education Springfield is rated as 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 studio, children are encouraged to explore and learn every day.

Guardian Springfield offers a leading Kindergarten Program, led by our university-qualified teachers which helps prepare our older children for the exciting transition to school. This program is in addition to the amazing learning experiences our dedicated Educators and Teachers prepare for children of all ages – from six months to six years.

We are proud to have a culturally diverse team and celebrate a variety of cultures and holidays throughout the year which gives the children an appreciation for diversity and an understanding of the world around them.

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.

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.
