More Availability in Quality Childcare for Parents in the South East

With access to top childcare a cause of angst for today’s parents, the opening of a number of new centres by Edge Early Learning, across Brisbane and the Gold Coast, will alleviate pressure and provide superior early education options.

There are limited vacancies currently available at the privately-owned and operated Edge Centres, based conveniently in Pimpama, Tarragindi, Strathpine, West End – in Jane Street and Montague Road.
And in July a new centre will be opening in Milton, followed by South Brisbane and North Pimpama respectively in early 2019, increasing Edge Early Learning’s footprint in the local south east Queensland community.
Edge Early Learning is Queensland’s newest network of community based early childhood education centres, established in 2017, boasting a unique environment that is both inspiring and challenging, with passionate educators and program philosophies that aim to give children the best opportunity to learn and grow.
Edge Early Learning Chief Executive Officer, Annie Bryce, said that the vision was to create a safe and welcoming environment for children and families with shared community and educational values.
“We’re more than just a place to learn, our centres offer a sense of community that underpins our mantra to give children the best opportunity to develop new skills and learn about the world,” she said.
“Our emergent curriculum allows our children to thrive and builds on capturing their interests and passions at a certain point in time, beginning with the value we place on play.”
“We encourage every child to explore, identify, negotiate and take risks,” Annie added.
The new Milton centre is taking enrolments now in advance of opening its doors mid-year and has received a high level of interest, from this highly populated and commuter-packed region of Brisbane.
“Keeping up with demand, while delivering a high level of excellence in education is a delicate balance but one where the children and parents remain top of mind and we thrive on providing this environment to families,” said Annie.
With a team of passionate and experienced educators, Edge Early Learning’s educational program supports and enhances learning milestones and journeys across all areas of early development, including promoting health and wellbeing.
“Learning occurs naturally when teachable moments are captured and that is why our skilled educators implement this approach to encourage children to be curious and active learners,” she said.
“Our team have developed our philosophy, learning environments and teaching methods to ensure that our children create meaning and develop independence as they learn about the world and experience new understandings.”
The educational framework embodied by Edge Early Learning is a key component of the Australian Government’s National Quality Framework for early childhood education and care, with focus on developing effective and engaging programs built on each individual child’s interests.
“‘Belonging, being and becoming’ describes the framework and we believe this enhances young children’s learning as they transition from birth, all the way through to school,” said Annie.  
Edge Early Learning’s quest is to become Australia’s best in early childhood education by empowering its educators and providing them with the environment, resources, and support to create the best learning opportunities for the children in their care.
