A few words from our Centre Director Sarah.

Our team at Edge Early Learning Port Adelaide provides an inclusive environment for children and families structured on our community. Our teaching philosophy is inquiry based which allows the children to explore and become confident learners within their environment. We pride ourselves in having close connections with all families and supporting families through their children’s learning. Our program promotes independence in children with their learning and the choices they make in their environment. I invite you to book a tour and come and experience our beautiful purpose-built centre for yourself.


About the Centre

Edge Early Learning Port Adelaide is open for long daycare hours and provides quality education and childcare for children aged six weeks to school age. Our childcare centre is conveniently located at the Port Adelaide Plaza Shopping Centre, easily accessed through an external entrance next to Bendigo Bank.

We are passionate about the health and wellbeing of your children at our Port Adelaide childcare centre, which is why our program promotes healthy eating and active lifestyles. Our learning spaces have been custom designed to provide a calming and engaging space for children. All kindergarten classrooms are filled with quality resources and intentional learning experiences to foster a love of learning in our children. Our outdoor spaces have been designed around the natural elements and are equipped with bike tracks, sandpits, an in-ground trampoline, waterplay and a climbing fort.

Our play-based learning guides children towards achieving development goals, including building a sense of identity, wellbeing, and are confident learners. The Educational program is child-led using our inquiry-based approach, which encourages children to pose questions, hypothesise, and investigate. Participating in inquiry-based experiences provides opportunities for children to develop a sense of identity and sets them up for a successful transition to school.

Our Approach Edge Early Learning Port Adelaide

Families love Edge

We have been very happy with our child’s experience at Edge. We were asked what she liked to play with and on her first day they had all these things ready for her. I thought it was really thoughtful and showed their person centred approach. Located at the shops, it is also very handy.
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!'
