Guardian Childcare & Education Paradise

Guardian Childcare & Education Paradise is rated exceeding in the National Quality Standard. The Centre has a range of exciting, resource-rich environments including an art studio, herb and vegetable gardens, water pumps, a creek bed, mud pits, shady trees, and natural play structures.

The first five years of your child’s life are incredibly important when it comes to social and emotional development, and setting them up with a love of learning that lasts a lifetime. That’s why at Guardian Paradise we’re focused on teaching children how to learn versus just ticking a box. This approach to education comes to life in our Kindergarten Program, which is led by qualified teachers who are there to help prepare your child for the exciting transition to school.

Children enjoy excursions into the local community, as well as in-Centre experiences such as dance classes and visit from special guests, including space engineers and nutritionists.

Our on-site cooks prepare five nutritionally, balanced meals using seasonal ingredients every day. To further explore food at the Centre, Educators host regular hands-on cooking experiences for the children to extend on their knowledge of nutrition and to encourage them to try new foods.

At Guardian Paradise, we’re confident our unique approach to combining education, play, and care will be the difference you’re looking for.  Book a tour or contact our team today.

Our Educators

Our team of Educators are committed and passionate about ensuring your child will be safe, nurtured and cared for every day. At Guardian, children are encouraged to engage in interest-led play that creates learning and meaningful experiences.

Our Educators seek to optimise diverse learning opportunities and implement the Curriculum as framed by the Early Years Learning Framework.

Our Centres use Storypark and each family is provided with a secure login to access on their computers, mobiles or apps.

Learn More About Our Centre

Guardian Childcare & Education Paradise was established in 2006 and is a long day care service. Paradise is in walking distance from the O’Bahn bus service at the Paradise Interchange, with an easy commute into the CBD of Adelaide. We provide care for children 6 weeks – school age with a range of rooms to assist in the quality care of your child.

Our centre is cosy, warm and caring with plenty of space for children to discover, play, and learn. We boast two beautiful ateliers spaces which are rich in resources where our children can extend and deepen their creativity and learning. We also invite members of the community to run a range of workshops in these spaces from clay and flower workshops to science presentations.

Our outdoor classrooms consist of several unique, challenging and sensory aware areas allowing children to challenge themselves within a natural play environment. From individual and group play to spontaneous and planned experiences, our curriculums are designed to help children develop into confident young individuals.

We are proud of our play-based learning curriculum that focuses on the holistic development of the child. Our work with the children has reaped many rewards including our recent title as 2019 state winners of the Primary Mathematics Association Numeracy Challenge.

All Educators within our service hold current police clearances, child safe environments, food handling and first aid training including asthma and anaphylaxis certificates. We have an extensive training budget to allow our Educators to maintain their knowledge within the early childhood sector.

We are proud to have Educators, children and families that come from a variety of countries around the world, which means the children have lots of opportunities to learn about different cultures. We make a point to engage with families and learn about their background so that each child feels accepted and welcomed. We value and celebrate different cultures throughout the year.

Open communication with families is critical and the use of StoryPark heightens this communication. We constantly seek feedback from children and families on how we can improve our service. By getting to know our Educators, you can be confident your child is in the care of passionate and experienced professionals.

The diversity in our service even extends to our delicious and nutritious meals. Our amazing chefs create dishes from all around the world, with families often requesting a copy of the recipes! The children are exposed to a variety of foods from all different cultures, with every effort made to use wholesome ingredients and lots of fruit and vegetables.

We also care for a diverse range of animals at the centre. From observing our hermit crabs and stick insects, to patting our rabbit and feeding our fish and turtle, not forgetting our beautiful budgies. There are lots of opportunities to learn about different species and create inspired animal artwork!
