About Guppy's ELC Acacia Ridge
At Guppy’s we strive to provide an early education service that is based upon the guiding principles of the National Quality Framework, which encompasses the Early Years Learning Framework and My Time Our Place Framework, and the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guideline. We believe in designing an environment where children feel safe and secure and which provides them the opportunity to develop themselves in their own unique way through discovery and exploration. At Guppy’s we believe that programs should reflect on the needs and interests of the children. We encourage children to engage in many different forms of learning through play, exploration, self- expression, critical thinking and problem solving. We will ensure that the service programs, policies and procedures reflect, respect and are align with National Quality Standards and the service philosophy.
At Guppy’s we recognise all children as individuals regardless of their cultural background, disability, gender, beliefs and attitudes. All children are to be treated equally without bias or judgement. Individual efforts and skills are encouraged, recognised and appreciated and this is reflected through the service programs. No children are excluded on ground of gender, disability or behaviour.
At Guppy’s we believe in enhancing children’s self-esteem through interactions, developmentally appropriate experiences, and relationships between children and educators forged on mutual trust and respect. We equip children with life skills that will enable them to experience fulfilling and rewarding participation within the community through providing opportunities to work together co-operatively, to explore human relationships and to practice non-violent conflict resolution strategies.

Rather inconsistent unfortunately. Some staff are just wonderful while I witnessed others give the children their phone with a show on it to occupy them. When I contacted the owner Suzanne Parker about this and a number of other issues, she was blunt, unapologetic and rude. The Centre is rundown and outdated. Really poor ownership and I feel for those few staff that genuinely care for the kids as they are so much better than this establishment.

Not happy at all. In Acacia Ridge, the children crying for the first half of the day, then the staffs try to do something for the other half. Smells really bad inside one of the rooms. The gate is locked so we cant go inside to see what is going on. Before they open the gate they grab your baby to show they care about your child while others are just crying. I'm not gonna let my baby to go there anymore. Just go there 11am to see whats going on in Acacia ridge Guppys.
