A New Era for Childhood Education with Edge Early Learning

With roots across the south east, Edge Early Learning is Queensland’s newest network of community based early childhood education centres, established in 2017.

Privately owned and operated with centres based in Pimpama, Tarragindi, Strathpine, West End – in Jane Street and Montague Road – Edge Early Learning’s footprint is embedded into the local community, with a new centre opening in Milton by July, followed by South Brisbane and North Pimpama in early 2019.

Boasting a unique environment that is both inspiring and challenging, Edge Early Learning’s passionate educators and program philosophy aims to give children the best opportunity to learn and grow.

Edge Early Learning Chief Executive Officer, Annie Bryce, said that the vision was to create a safe and welcoming environment for children and families with shared community and educational values.

“We’re more than just a place to learn, our centres offer a sense of community that underpins our mantra to give children the best opportunity to develop new skills and learn about the world,” she said.

“Our emergent curriculum allows our children to thrive and builds on capturing their interests and passions at a certain point in time, beginning with the value we place on play.”

“We encourage every child to explore, identify, negotiate and take risks,” Annie added.

With a team of passionate and experienced educators, Edge Early Learning’s educational program supports and enhances learning milestones and journeys across all areas of early development, including promoting health and wellbeing.

“Learning occurs naturally when teachable moments are captured and that is why our skilled educators implement this approach to encourage children to be curious and active learners,” she said.

“Our team have developed our philosophy, learning environments and teaching methods to ensure that our children create meaning and develop independence as they learn about the world and experience new understandings.”

The educational framework embodied by Edge Early Learning is a key component of the Australian Government’s National Quality Framework for early childhood education and care, with focus on developing effective and engaging programs built on each individual child’s interests.

“Belonging, being and becoming’ describes the framework and we believe this enhances young children’s learning as they transition from birth, all the way through to school,” said Annie.

Edge Early Learning’s quest is to become Australia’s best in early childhood education by empowering its educators and providing them with the environment, resources, and support to create the best learning opportunities for the children in their care.
