About

Every day is an opportunity for discovery and growth at Guardian Childcare & Education Flinders Street. With a range of exciting, resource-rich environments – including multiple enclosed outdoor areas, art ateliers and music and movement programs – children are encouraged to explore and learn.

The light-filled and open-plan centre also has luscious indoor gardens, a creek bed, a treehouse, sandpits, and natural play structures.

As the only inner-city childcare centre in Adelaide accepting children under 2.5-year-olds, our centre has a strong community, with many of our parents popping in on their breaks, or taking the children out to lunch to surrounding cafes.

Children get out and about on excursions, so we have a great connection with the surrounding community. We visit a variety of locations, including the Botanic Gardens, Rundle Mall, Adelaide Sustainability Centre, and the museum.

We are proud to have a culturally diverse team and celebrate a variety of cultures and holidays throughout the year.

Our on-site cook prepares five nutritionally balanced meals using seasonal ingredients every day. To further explore food at the centre, our Educators host cooking classes for the children to get involved in to enhance their understanding of good nutrition.

Begin the adventure at Guardian today by booking a tour.

All the staff, especially Courtney Aschmalz being the hero at Guardian Flinders Street child care centre. Our eldest daughter, Anching who joined the centre when she turned 8 months and now she is almost 2 years 9 months. We’re so pleased with how they’re structured their learning & teaching style, engagement with kids and caring factor at all times being the top most thing we have found during the whole time. Our daughter talks about Courtney at home, even in dreams and so obsessed with her that she wanted to go to child care so she get some hugs from her… she also love other educators but seems that Courtney is her favourite among all. Anching always come home and talk about her day, and enjoyed every moment being in child care. We have recently enrolled our second daughter at the age of 6 months, and she is being cared by the staff very well. Thank you for Guardian flinders street staff for looking after our girls. There is no regrets whatsoever, recommend Guardian flinders street to any parents who are looking or thinking of sending their kids to child care. Sent from my iPhone

I honestly don't think it’s possible to find a better childcare centre! Talia and the team are always full of positive energy and you can see everyone in the team loves caring for the children and watching them develop and grow like they are their own! My daughter has grown so much independence and confidence and her social skill have excelled since starting at the centre 10 weeks ago. I love that it’s a small centre and the children get a lot of one on one attention. Every time I go to pick up my daughter a child is being cuddled or the children are surrounding the educators while a book is being read to them or they are playing a game. My daughter talks about Talia, Laura and Courtney like they are her best friends ❤️

My little boy has been here since he was 6 months old, and he now, he is almost 2 1/2 years old!! He loves every moment of it and always walk into the centre by himself, giving some of the educators a warm little hug along the way... and I love seeing him happy always around the educators and friends! Truly never a dull moment. The team has been great in helping me bringing up a beautiful happy boy. The education, the weekly pictures and updates, the outdoor activities super CUTE i must say, and just the team itself.. its a like BIG family.. and that itself is the most important value for me.. warm, caring, and strong bond... So, yes this is certainly an amazing centre!! Highly recommend it to any parents

Fabulous childcare centre with educators that are caring and clearly love what they do. Our little boy has been going since 5 months old and has developed some lovely connections with his peers and educators.

An exceptional facility, located in the heart of the city, with caring, dedicated staff. Our little girl has been going to Guardian now for some time and and has progressed through the various stages, starting as a shy, reserved child downstairs to now wanting to go see her educators and friends upstairs with the ‘big kids’. Diverse, inclusive and supportive, Guardian Flinders Street is managed wonderfully by Talia and her team who forge lasting relationships with the children, create memories through their play and education and share outings and experiences in the city. Big shout out to Courtney and Laura who have supported our daughter and helped her thrive at Guardian. Could not recommend highly enough!
