The Nairne centre staff have been very welcoming, nurturing, and transparent since we enrolled our daughter. We love the daily overview and photos of her adventures, the approach to both social and independent learning and development, and the varied meal plan. Just wish she didn't get sick every other day...here's hoping her immune system builds up soon!

I toured Guardian Nairne for the first time and from the moment I arrived I was blown away. Both the Management and Educators answered all my questions and showed a high level of kindness, respect and knowledge. As we walked through the centre I was informed of all the existing and future plans for the centre and how each of my children’s days will look when they open their doors. I am so glad to have found such a caring and supportive environment for myself and children to be apart of.

Learn More About Our Centre

Guardian Childcare & Education Nairne is a new and purpose-built Centre in the beautiful Adelaide Hills, where children aged six weeks to six years can come for a safe and secure environment to freely grow and develop. We’re open from 6.30 am to 6.30 pm on weekdays, so families have plenty of flexibility around drop-off and pick-up times.

Guardian Nairne is perfect for families living in or near the Nairne area, providing an environment that is both welcoming and nurturing in the heart of the local community. We have qualified staff who are passionate about creating experiences for children that promote learning and development through play, offering activities such as music and movement, arts and craft, literacy and numeracy, problem-solving games, balanced nutrition (prepared fresh on-site) and much more.

Our Educators and Teachers are all passionate and highly experienced, and we have university-qualified Early Childhood Teachers providing care and education to the children as well. Our Teachers and Educators work to understand each child’s unique characteristics, interests and talents to make learning a more fun and engaging experience.

We have a spacious outdoor area filled with stimulating natural materials for children to explore their world and develop an understanding of nature. They may choose to spend some time creating amazing shapes and structures in our shaded sandpit area, or running around on our spacious grass space.

Communication and transparency are important to us, and our family communication app, Storypark, provides us with the opportunity to freely share photos, videos and updates with families on their child’s development, growth and learning. Through informing families on their child’s progress, families can be empowered to continue the learning at home and further discuss any new ideas or concepts that the child explored that day.

Guardian Nairne fosters strong community connections, supporting children through their development of social, communication and emotional skills. We regularly go out on fun and engaging excursions in our local area. Children have the chance to run around and engage in some physical activity in an outdoor environment while interacting with the public when we head to a local park or football oval.

We also have a strong positive relationship with the local Nairne Primary School, which is within walking distance of the childcare centre. Through this community connection and interaction with school-age children, we can begin preparing children for the step up into formal education through the assistance of our local primary school, which is where many of our children may end up going.

Our kindergarten program is another way we begin to prepare our children for the exciting, but often daunting, transition into primary school. Three and four-year-olds have the opportunity to learn some of the basic skills they’ll be exposed to in their first year of primary school, such as shapes, colours, numbers and phonics. Through introducing these in preschool, children can feel more prepared and confident as they begin the transition.

Our kindergarten program also aims to develop children’s social and emotional skills, by providing a safe and secure learning environment, they have the space to take risks and challenge themselves, helping build self-confidence and develop independence. We make education fun through engaging play-based learning, helping instil positive attitudes towards learning that develop the children into naturally curious, lifelong learners. Nairne preschool and kindergarten also come with the benefit of long day care, making it ideal for busy families.

We don’t just provide school hours care. Guardian childcare in Nairne is open for 12 hours a day, so there is plenty of flexibility for when you choose to drop off and pick up your child, including. We encourage you to spend these times in our centre, discussing your child’s early learning and care experience with our friendly Educators and Teachers, while taking a look around the learning environment for yourself. You’ll see why so make families make Guardian Nairne their chosen child care centre.
