Guardian Childcare & Education Export Park

Every day is an opportunity for discovery and growth at Guardian Childcare & Education Export Park, which is rated exceeding in the National Quality Standard. With a range of exciting, resource-rich environments – including the largest outdoor play spaces in the western suburbs, complete with a water pump, a creek bed, natural play structures and luscious gardens – children are encouraged to explore and learn.

The light-filled centre is fondly referred to as “Adelaide’s best kept secret!” and features music classes, language lessons, weekly soccer skills, and a range of age-specific ateliers.

Children get out and about on weekly excursions, so we have a great connection with the surrounding community. We love going to the airport for morning tea, supermarkets, local Aboriginal wetlands, the zoo and the Adelaide Central Markets.

With a community-minded team of Educators who have been with the centre for a long time, we are proud to have a culturally diverse team and celebrate a variety of cultures and holidays.

Our on-site cook prepares five nutritionally balanced meals using seasonal ingredients every day.

Learn More About Our Centre

Guardian Childcare & Education Export Park 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 treasure each child and take pride in their care and learning from babies through to their transition to school.
