A few words from our Centre Director, Stephanie.

At Edge Early Learning Higgins, we love to teach the Rainbow, acknowledging that each experience the children participate in encompasses a range of learning opportunities. Our environments and curriculum are designed to inspire children to learn alongside one another through play. Children are able to explore their ideas and working theories with a range of open-ended resources providing the opportunity to grow. We honour and advocate for children’s rights through providing an inclusive educational program and service for all, meeting individual learning needs tailored to diverse interests, abilities, cultures, and identities.

We support educators to be the best possible early education professionals through regular training, critical reflection, mentoring, and coaching; all based on current research and understanding of best practices. Our community gathers together to build relationships, connect, collaborate and network generating a child-focused community of practice. We welcome you and your family to book a tour, meet our team, and experience Edge Higgins for yourselves.

Welcome

About the Centre

Edge Early Learning Higgins, previously Little Penguins Early Learning, provides quality childcare and preschool programs tailored to children from 6 weeks to school age. Our team of long-standing educators are passionate about ensuring both you and your children feel welcome and involved in our Educational Curriculum and your individual child’s learning journey.

We are well connected with our local schools, businesses, and services within the Higgins community. The children enjoy visiting the residents at The Henry Retirement Village sharing stories, activities, and letters with one another. Our peers at Belconnen High School also love to stop by to read stories and share lessons with the children which creates such a sense of excitement about starting school.

Health, wellbeing, and sustainability are also an important part of our curriculum. The children enjoy learning about recycling, our native flora and fauna, and especially love tending to our green wall where we trim and propagate new plants from. Our in-house chef cooks the children’s meals on-site and caters to any dietary requirements, ensuring all children get the nutrition they need to sustain active learning throughout the day.

  • Onsite parking for easy drop-offs & pick-ups
  • Security Pin Access
  • All meals throughout the day are included

Families love Edge

'My daughter loves attending Edge so much that she runs into the centre each morning. The educators treat the children respectfully and lovingly. The centre is clean and modern with a wonderful variety of play areas. I could not recommend Edge Early Learning highly enough.'
Kate from South Brisbane
From the day we decided to trial our two children at Edge Early Learning, we have felt confident in our choice of daycare centres. I was initially very nervous about returning to work, but the staff have always been so supportive and shown the utmost care for our two. From the regular updates and discussions, I know they are always engaged in so many educational and fun activities. Highly recommend!
Alicia from Milton
'I do not have enough kind words to explain how much each and every educator has helped my family. They are kind, caring and actually interested in my child’s education. We are always greeted with a smile and the staff are happy to have a chat not only about how our daughters day has been but how mine has been too. Communication is on point. 5 stars is not enough in my opinion!'
Gemma from Pimpama
Staff are open and honest with communication and my family have settled in well to the Edge community. My boys are excited when I tell them it's an Edge day - that's what matters most to us. Plus I don't have the added pressure of packing their lunch boxes. Our mornings are so easy on Edge days!
