A few words from our Centre Director, Tamara

I believe a strong, motivated team of Early childhood Educators helps children to experience an easier transition into a new environment. I am building a team where our core value is to inspire all children to grow to be competent and confident young learners who are healthy in mind, body and spirit, secure in their sense of belonging and secure in the knowledge that they make a valued contribution to their community.

We believe you are your child’s first teacher. When we work collaboratively together, we help build strong learning foundations for your child.

About the Centre

Edge Early Learning Karana Downs is our purpose-built early learning centre located behind Mount Crosby State School. We provide quality child care and education tailored to children from 6 weeks to school age.

At Karana Down’s childcare centre, we are passionate about the health and well-being of children, which is why our program promotes healthy eating and active lifestyles. Our custom-designed centre features indoor-outdoor learning spaces that enable children to harness their learning potential in a space that suits their interests. 

We implement an inquiry-based approach where children are encouraged to ask questions, explore new interests and develop a love of learning through play-based experiences. With a focus on a successful transition to school, each child receives a personalised program to provide the best early learning experience and aid in their growth and development.

Families love Edge

Edge Early Learning Karana Downs is everything you want in a childcare centre and more! Everyone is so friendly, helpful and professional. Tamara has been so accommodating and has gone out of her way on numerous occasions to assist us. Miss Tammy, Rebecca and all the staff are absolutely wonderful. It’s tough parting with your baby and the team here has helped to not only make it a smooth transition but a really fun and exciting experience. My son absolutely adores them and I cannot rave about them enough! If your looking for somewhere trustworthy, reliable, wholesome and that feels like part of the fam, then look no further.
Katala from Karana Downs
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!
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!
'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.'
'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!'
