Guardian is much more than a place of childcare and learning. It is a place where children feel safe and secure to be themselves. A place where children can be curious, imaginative and brave in their learning We create an environment that supports children with the best possible start to life.
We believe that if we focus our enormous passion on the care and education of young children, then these children will leave us with the capacity for a lifelong interest in learning, enhancing their personal development and the contribution they make to the world of tomorrow.

Our purpose is clear
To ensure children are supported to be brave, curious, and imaginative in their learning, to give them the best possible start to life.
The Guardian Team have collectively defined the mindsets that shape how we think, feel, and act each day. Every day we aspire to be:
Positive: Being passionate and finding joy in what we do.
Brave: Trying new things, reimagining what’s possible, challenging ourselves.
Thoughtful: Being open, honest and fair, being empathetic, being inclusive, being respectful.
Professional: Going above and beyond, doing our best always, being a role model, getting better every day.
When we live our mindsets, we deliver on our true potential and we can better support, enable, and nurture children during their early years.
Guardian is a place where people can grow and thrive in their careers, knowing they will be inspired by the people they work with, have a voice in decisions the impact the lives of young children, and know their contribution matters.
