Guardian Childcare & Education Daw Park

Located in the inner south of Adelaide, Guardian Childcare & Education Daw Park is a custom-designed early learning environment for children aged six weeks to six years. The new, light-filled Centre boasts two spacious outdoor areas filled with nature-inspired materials that encourage children to explore, ignite their curiosity, learn and have fun.

Guardian Daw Park also provides a leading Kindergarten Program led by university-qualified teachers, designed to help prepare your child for the exciting transition to primary school.

A word from Guardian Daw Park Centre Manager, Jodie Hannaford

“I believe that all children are unique and should be respected, and I thoroughly enjoy watching them grow and develop into independent little people. I’m very passionate about delivering high-quality care to all families and children within my Centre. I am an advocate for professional development for myself and all Educators. I believe continued development builds strong and passionate Educators, who actively implement, promote and advocate for high-quality outcomes for children and families.”

“I want all children to know that they are successful, capable and confident learners and that they are all unique. I want to offer them a place where they are comfortable and confident to engage in learning relationships with their Educators and peers. I will endeavour to help them understand that they have a right to contribute to communities, groups and the greater world.”
