A love of food starts early

When you join Guardian, you will be contributing to a team effort to create awesome learning experiences for children in a safe and secure environment. You will have the opportunity to collaborate with Educators and Teachers to make food part of the learning journey and have the satisfaction of seeing how children respond to new and wonderful flavours. In addition, you will have a great place to work, filled with exciting opportunities to grow your career.

You will be creating menus full of delicious and nutritious snacks and meals for children and their Educators, as well as being part of the learning experience when they help you prepare food, forage from the garden, and learn about what they’re eating.

It all comes together at mealtimes, where children and teams share food together, enjoying each other’s company and learning how nothing brings people together like great food.

Introducing GStar

Recognising and celebrating great work

We all know that when we feel valued, we also feel motivated to do our best in supporting and nurturing children. When we feel valued, it creates a positive and supportive work environment.

GStar is simple and easy-to-use platform to shine a spotlight on team members. We can recognise their achievements, mindsets and important milestones like birthdays and workplace anniversaries. It’s all about celebrating the big and little wins each day in your team and Centre.

GStar also has a points system – being recognised for great work helps you accrue points that can be redeemed for rewards, from brand-name merchandise and gift cards, to travel experiences, charitable donations and more.

GStar is helping us make Guardian Centres places people love to be.
