Founded in 2004, Guardian Childcare & Education has grown to over 130 fully owned centres across Australia and become a household name in early learning. With over 92% of centres meeting or exceeding the National Quality Standard, Guardian is proud to be a place that families can trust, where people thrive, and children grow.
Connecting and coordinating more than 130 sites to meet the communication requirements of 2020 and beyond is a daunting task for any provider. After providing bespoke voice and data solutions to Guardian since 2013 and managing 1/3 of Guardian centres for the last 3 years, Switch Telecom was awarded the entire contract in July 2020. The meticulously designed voice and data solution for Guardian is a fully managed deployment that includes hi-speed internet connections at all locations, a central, cloud-hosted phone system that allows for maximum flexibility and ease-of-use, a complete hardware refresh and state-of-the-art cyber protection with Meraki and Umbrella by Cisco.
