A few words from our Centre Director Sam.

Here at Edge Strathalbyn we strive to provide a warm, welcoming, and nurturing environment to the children in our care. It is our goal to create:
A place for each child to belong. A place for each child to be whatever they want to be. A place for each child to become a strong, confident, and inquisitive learner. We pride ourselves on an inclusive and welcoming centre. We at Edge Strathalbyn are not just a team but a family, we mirror this in our everyday practices and welcome new families to join our family.

Welcome

About the Centre

Edge Early Learning Strathalbyn, previously known as Where We Grow, provide quality childcare and kindergarten programs tailored to children aged 6 weeks to school age. Our newly acquired centre is still run by the same close-knit team of qualified educators who are passionate about providing children with a strong foundation in their early years. Our Educators encourage children to explore new interests and we celebrate these together as we learn through a range of different topics such as culture, wellbeing, sustainability, numeracy and literacy, relationships, senses, emotions, and more! We display our work proudly around the room and invite families to come and experience what we have been learning about. Our outdoor areas are designed around the natural elements of Strathalbyn and are even equipped with two chickens who live in our centre chicken pen.

Our in-house chef, Tamika, prepares breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea, and a late snack for the children and caters to all dietary requirements. Tamika is passionate about providing a range of meals that cover different cuisines and expose children to different flavours and ingredients. Some of the children’s favourite meals are Chicken & Pineapple, Quesadillas, Traditional Bolognese, and Vegetable Fried Rice.

“Art has the role in education of helping children become like themselves instead of more like everyone else.” – Sydney Gurewitz Clemens

Edge Strathalbyn Chickens

Sustainable Early Learning

Our program incorporates lessons around our two chickens who live at the centre. The children learn about life cycles, numeracy counting their eggs, and gain a sense of responsibility for learning to care for animals. We enjoy seeing the children learn and express their love for our fluffy centre pets.

There's more to the story at Edge.

Families love Edge

Friendly, professional and trained staff. The children are given a fun, positive and educational experience whilst in care. Staff do their best to respect your babies routine.
Melissa from Strathalbyn
Sam and the Edge family are amazing! We have 3 children in their care and all three absolutely love going to "School" I've never had an issue and they are all so welcoming and easy to speak to. They send me updates of the kids while at work, so my mind is always at ease about how they are going, then at the end of the day, we get a write up of their whole day and we use these as great conversations promps with our 4 year at dinner time. Again, Edge is an amazing centre and we are so glad we made the move. They're an absolute blessing in our family.
Rhiannon from Strathalbyn
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.'
Kate
'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!'
