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 to share what’s important for the day and any news from home.
Breakfast time where families are welcome to stay and enjoy breakfast with the children.
An opportunity to play and discover with open-plan play in family groups and multi-age groupings.
Planned experiences. This is where the Guardian difference comes to life. Alongside our Educators your child’s exploration leads to learnings in numeracy, literacy, language, critical thinking, problem solving, leadership, social skills, technology, creative arts and much more.
An opportunity for children to come together for a healthy snack, often they help prepare their food alongside our carers and cook.
Individually tailored to your child’s needs and curiosity the planned experiences continue, this includes both indoor and outdoor programs.
Another nutritious meal expertly prepared by our cook. Families are invited to join the children for meals and excursions if they wish.
If your child wants to, or needs to sleep, it’s time to rest and recharge. For children who don’t need to rest the planned experiences continue, in most cases outdoors.
Another chance for the children to come together and re-fuel in small groups. There is also an opportunity to rest or play together and reflect on the day.
As you arrive to pick up your child, there’s a chance to speak with our Educators and share news about the day. Our Storypark App also allows you to stay in touch 24/7 wherever you are.
End of day
Your child is encouraged to grab a light snack before they leave the centre. We’re mindful of how routines vary, throughout the day if we notice your child looking tired food will be provided.

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!
