Our Cains early learning centres

At Edge Early Learning, our Cairns childcare centres use a holistic approach to develop both the body and mind. Each learning program embraces this philosophy to help your child develop strong relationships, remain active and create connections to their local community.

At each of our Cairns childcare centres, an inquiry-based learning framework is used to achieve this. This aligns with our Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF V2.0) that centres around play-based learning to assist children in achieving their developmental goals across the following outcomes:

Children have a strong sense of identity

Children are connected with and contribute to their world

Children have a strong sense of wellbeing

Children are confident and informed learners

Children are effective communicators

Creating an engaging learning envrionment

On top of our engaging learning programs, we understand the environment a child grows up in is key to their development in younger years. All our Cairns childcare centres have been consciously designed to create a warm and welcoming space for children to feel confident to learn, develop and grow. Each centre also features indoor and outdoor areas to encourage your child’s natural curiosity and active learning through play.  

At Edge Early Learning, we pride ourselves on ensuring our childcare centres are accessible to all families. This is why our Cairns childcare centres offer convenient onsite parking and extended childcare hours enabling easy drop-offs and pick-ups.
