A few words from our Centre Director Sue.

At Edge Mount Barker, we believe that children’s development is enhanced by providing opportunities that encourage children to explore the world, in which they live, through their interests. By providing a safe and secure environment, children discover how to feel confident in who they are and who they want to be. We strongly believe that by offering a flexible, creative, and welcoming environment children will grow to be independent and responsible champions of their world. We welcome you and your family to our early learning centre.

Trish from Mount Barker
Edge has been the best thing for my 3 year old who attends the preschool room. After struggling to find a centre that suited him, we are now over the moon that he can attend a centre where he feels comfortable and is being given the best opportunity to thrive both socially and emotionally. We are always greeted with a warm smile and drop offs are a much happier time now. Thanks to the team at Edge for welcoming us to your beautiful centre, you all are doing an amazing job and should be proud 😊
