Guardian is a place where our people are recognised and rewarded for bringing their whole self to work. It’s what’s in you that makes a child’s experience truly unique.

The Centre

Taringa is one of our newest editions to the Guardian community. Our 121-place open plan centre boasts a beautiful wrap around outside play and discovery environment for children from birth to five.

With views of Mount Coot-tha, children enjoy their meals with a view at their purpose-built breakfast bar.

Our light-filled centre inspires the minds of children with a wooden forte, water play, natural gardens and environments where our exciting programs come to life.

Located close to public transport, Taringa is easily accessible for educators and families.
