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 cook.
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 cook. 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 or with siblings. 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.

More about Guardian Export Park expand_more
Guardian Childcare & Education Export Park in the western suburbs of Adelaide is inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach. Our curriculum is rich and vibrant, and we rely on input from our families to stimulate learning through our natural environments. Our possibilities for learning are child led and aided by individual observations and intentional learning experiences this is shown in our children’s learning journeys. Our program supports many different cultural beliefs, interests and stages of development. Our centre supports the principles of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.
Our children are encouraged to make choices and give direction over their curriculum. Our children are successful, competent and capable learners. The children are encouraged to learn through experiences based on touching, moving, listening, observation and research. Our children are respected as individuals and are encouraged to learn in their own unique way with the world around them.
As Educators we provide the children with endless ways to express themselves. With the support of Educators, each child has a true sense of belonging to the Export family and are encouraged through excursions to be involved in the wider community. Our Children feel safe in their environment and love the flexibility of being able to move between the indoor and outdoor play spaces. The children enjoy the company of the Educators in all areas of their curriculum and find our team supportive of their learning and decision making throughout their day.
Our families are celebrated and the role of parents and carers are respected and supported. Parents are a vital component in our philosophy and are viewed as partners, collaborators and advocates for their children. Our Educators respect that parents are their child’s first teacher and involve parents in every aspect of the curriculum. Families are encouraged to be involved in our program and work closely with educators to ensure their child succeeds in every stage of their emotional wellbeing and development.
Our Educators are co-learners with every child in their learning journey, embracing each child’s interests and curiosities. Our Educators have a sound knowledge of the Early Years Learning Framework; Belonging, Being and Becoming and have embedded the National Quality Standards into the service delivery. They provide a professional, caring and stimulating setting to enhance children’s learning. The Educators work closely with the community and are actively encouraged to access personal and professional development.
We know it’s a big decision to make about who will care for your child, but we aim to make it an easy one by providing a home-away-from-home at Export Park, where children learn and feel safe to explore in a variety of settings.
Our world-class curriculum is delivered by qualified teachers through exciting and engaging play-based experiences, including our leading Kindergarten Program for our older children. We combine this with the highest quality care, and communicate it all back to you so you can see how your child is growing and developing every day.
Guardian Export Park has rooms and Educators dedicated to each age group: Baby, Toddler and Kindergarten. Our enrolment options provide long day care hours to support families, combining the security of ongoing bookings with the flexibility to access casual care days when needed (if spaces are available in your room).
Our close partnership with families allows us to offer a range of additional benefits to the learning and childcare experience for the children in our Centres. We pride ourselves on the support we offer families and want to help make it a little easier to balance all those daily commitments,
We treasure each child and take pride in their care and learning from babies through to their transition to school.
