Edge Early Learning, Port Adelaide Plaza, is a child care centre like no other.
Edge Learning Centre is a purpose built childcare centre designed to challenge independent minds.
Edge implements an inquiry based approach, where children are encouraged to ask questions, explore new ideas, and learn through play.
Inquiry based educating is all about dynamic learning where our Educators start by posing questions or scenarios to trigger curiosity and encourage children to investigate their findings. This type of learning is particularly beneficial in developing problem solving and communication skills.
Edge are passionate about the health and wellbeing of children, which is why their program promotes healthy eating and active lifestyles. Edge is conscious that healthy habits ingrained in a child’s first five years will set the tone for future wellbeing. This is why their program includes physical activity, mindfulness, and basic nutritional education, in addition to providing children with a sense of self.
Edge have partnered with The Australian College of Physical Literacy to bring The Active Early Learning Curriculum into all Edge centres. The AEL Curriculum is based on over 12 years of research and is proven to develop children’s minds and bodies simultaneously. The results reveal overall improved wellbeing with added cognitive benefits such as improved memory, problem-solving and concentration which gives children the foundations to become more engaged learners as they progress into school.
