A few words from our Centre Director Haley.

We believe in providing children with the highest quality care allowing each and every child to reach their fullest potential by enhancing all areas of growth and development, in a warm and caring home-like environment.

We provide a positive environment where children and their families are made to feel welcome. Children are encouraged to learn through play and are provided with opportunities to explore, discover, create, and imagine.

We believe in cultural diversity and celebrate the benefits of diversity with each child enabling them to understand and acknowledge differences.

We welcome you and your family to book a tour, meet our team, and experience the centre for yourself.


About the Centre

Edge Early Learning Port Augusta provides quality child care and kindergarten programs tailored to children aged from 6 weeks to school age. The centre was designed around the suburb’s native Australian flora with natural outdoor learning spaces equipped with bike tracks, sandpits, nature play stations, and more!

Our team of qualified kindergarten educators are passionate about exposing children to a range of different educational topics, such as STEM-based experiences, cooking lessons, and sustainability experiences. Our team is committed to ensuring your child is prepared for school developmentally, socially, and emotionally. At Edge Port Augusta, we implement an inquiry-based approach, where children are encouraged to ask questions, explore new ideas, and learn through play. This type of learning is particularly beneficial in developing problem-solving and communication skills. We aim to foster strong relationships with their peers, helping build their confidence as they move into our Kindergarten program and school.

We value the relationships we have with our families and within the Port Augusta community. We stay connected with our local businesses, schools, and community services. With long childcare hours to enable easy drop-off and pick-up, quality education curriculums, nutritious meals catering to all dietary requirements, and a supportive daycare community, Edge Early Learning Port Augusta will help set your child up for success.
