Take a Look Around
Welcome to our Centre
Brand new Centre – opening early 2024!
We can’t wait to welcome you to our brand new, purpose-built childcare centre in Banksia Park in Adelaide; where children aged six weeks to six years will be supported to be creative, bold, and imaginative in their learning.
At our Guardian Banksia Park daycare centre, the education and care of children is our top priority. Each child is supported to explore their world in a safe and secure way within a warm and stimulating environment. Our diverse team of Teachers and Educators ensure that each child receives care tailored to their individual needs with a personalised approach to play-based learning.
Located within the vibrant City of Tea Tree Gully, our Banksia Park long day care centre is an ideal choice for local families seeking high-quality education and care.
It is also a great choice for families living in bordering suburbs including Tea Tree Gully, Fairview Park, and Surrey Downs. It is just a short drive to Banksia Park Primary School and Saint David’s Parish School.
Our Banksia Park childcare centre will offer world class facilities including:
- Leading learning programs such as Joy of Reading, Cooking, Out & About Community Excursions, Sustainability and more
- State of the art learning spaces full of high quality educational resources to promote curiosity and wonder
- Expansive outdoor space to play, discovery and explore
- Chef based on-site providing fresh meals and snacks daily, full of the best seasonal ingredients
Children at our new Banksia Park child care centre will also have the chance to see the same familiar faces as they move on up from the nursery room, into our two-year Kindergarten program, designed specifically to help prepare each child for a smooth transition from early learning to primary school.
Our Centre will provide nappies, SPF 50+ sunscreen, all nutritious meals and snacks, high quality formula and bed linen.
As part of Guardian’s unique Visible Learning Program, families will be able to gain insights into their child’s education each day. Our Learning Exchange Display will provide the opportunity for our Educators and Teachers to share updates on your child’s progress. It’s a great chance for you to have direct input into your child’s learning!
Families will have access to our communication app Storypark, allowing us to share important Centre updates, as well as exciting activities or milestones – ensuring that you remain connected, day-to-day.

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 for conversation to share what's important for the day/what's happened the night before at home.
Breakfast time where families are welcome to stay and enjoy breakfast with the children.
As children are arriving and families are coming and going, there's an opportunity for play as well as family grouping, open-plan play and multi-age grouping.
As the children come together, planned experiences begin. This is where the Guardian programs and practices come to life. Examples of learning include numeracy, literacy, language, critical thinking, problem solving, leadership, social skills, technology, science, creative arts, curiosity and more.
There's an opportunity for children to come together and enjoy morning tea.
Following morning tea, the planned experiences continue. This includes both indoor and outdoor programs.
There's an opportunity for children to come together for lunch. With an open-door policy, families are able to join the centre for meals and excursion if they wish.
For children who want to, or need to, there's an opportunity to sleep, rest or relax. For children who don't need to rest, there are planned experiences, which are more likely to be outdoors.
Children come together for afternoon tea in small groups or with siblings (they can also rest and play together, too). This time also presents an opportunity to reflect on the day.
End of the day
As families arrive to pick up children, there's an opportunity to speak to Educators and share information about the day.
End of the day
Some centres offer early tea or light snack at the end of the day, which they can grab as they leave the centre. We’re mindful of how routines vary at home, so if throughout the day, we notice children look tired, food will be provided.
Open 6:30am to 6:30pm
