I can't recommend them enough! They make my little girl feel like a rockstar every morning with all the staff members stopping what they're doing to say hello! The educators are so patient and lovely and organise amazing activities! We've seen such a big difference in our daughter's development since she started childcare. We feel extremely lucky to be part of the Guardian Childcare - Export Park family!

Soon I will have my 2nd child in care here, we have been with this centre for 2 years now and I love how caring the staff are, the educators and the managers. The office staff are super helpful. I am happy to bring my 2nd child here and have full confidence in the staff here. Incidents are reported quickly and we are notified instantly. The range of activities are great, and the cook is great too...accommodating my fussy eater.

We couldn’t be happier with Export Park Childcare centre. My 2 boys are really happy there. I’ve found the educators so caring and compassionate and have gone out of their way to accommodate my son with allergies.

Our twins have been attending this daycare since they were 15 weeks old and we have had nothing but amazing things to say about the center and the educators. We have always felt supported, listened too and our wishes and routines followed. The kids have such an amazing relationship with their room educators and I love seeing this. Can't highly recommend enough.

Having just left after 2.5 years I wanted to share our appreciation for the girls at the centre.AkiWe cannot thank you enough for everything you have done for Macie & Patrick. Macie went into your care as a baby and still loves you now. The kind of care you have provided is truly priceless. The best we can do is express our appreciation. Thanks for your patience and for the quality of care you provide each and every day. The centre would be lost without you!SuzanneJust wanted to let you know how much we appreciate the work you do every day. I remember wanting Macie to be around you to keep the English accent haha! We will miss your friendly face and kind nature. So on behalf of Macie & Patrick and their entire family, thank you so much!MarinaThanks so much for making my babies feel entertained, loved, and special. And thank you for making me feel at ease whilst I am at work!ShvetaThank you for everything you have taught Macie this year. She always comes home excited about her days with Shveta. On behalf of Macie and her entire family, thank you for the big difference you have made in her life! Macie is really going to miss seeing you every week.GabbyYou make learning an adventure for Macie. We adore you so much and appreciate all your care and commitment to our kids. You are a blessing not only to toddlers but to many working parents. Thank you for all your hard work and dedication. You are one in a million!MariahThank you so much for all you do! We wanted to express our appreciation for the affection, care, and support you have shown to our precious girl. We wish you all the best in whatever comes your way!Danni, Molly and LorenAlthough we only saw each other for hi and goodbye, you were always a happy memory from Macie’s day. Thank you so much for the support and fun interactions you provide every day to all those lucky kids!My reason for 4 star is that in the past 12 months I feel the centre has lost its way. We are taking the kids out because of this.

More about Guardian Export Park

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: BabyToddler 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.
