From play to plate: Edge Early Learning serves up healthy education

With a strong focus on nurturing young minds through quality education, care and even nutritious meals made by in-house chefs daily, Edge Early Learning is shaping the early learning landscape in South Australia.

Being one of the leading early education providers within Australia, Edge delivers exceptional education programs that enable children to discover their potential and start school with a love of learning. Edge is a privately owned and operated early learning group that provides programs from 6-weeks to school age through an inquiry-based learning approach, where children are encouraged to ask questions and learn through play.

Good nutrition is essential for children’s health, growth, and development, which is why all South Australian centres have an in-house chef who produces a new, seasonal menu every week and provides fresh meals daily. Catering to all dietary requirements, children enjoy a vast variety of meals, salads, soups, mains and desserts. Some of the children’s favourites include focaccias, pinwheels, chicken curry, spaghetti and meatballs, and burgers that the children get to construct themselves.

We are conscious that healthy habits ingrained in a child’s first five years will set the tone for future wellbeing and that’s why we are so passionate about the health and wellbeing of children from a young age.

“We place a high importance on serving children nutritional and well-balanced meals that are diverse in flavour and cuisine. Mealtimes at Edge are also designed to be social, so the children eat together at tables in each of the centre’s dining areas and we find this helps encourage socialisation and positive eating habits,” Edge Early Learning CEO Annie Bryce said.

Since first established in the state almost 2-years ago, there are 17 Edge centres across SA including Aldinga Beach, Angle Vale, Brahma Lodge, Gawler East, Munno Para West, Strathalbyn, Virginia, Plympton, Oaklands Park, Royal Park, Port Adelaide, Hallett Cove, Port Pirie, Port Augusta, two in Mount Barker, and another purpose-built centre in Angle Vale established this year.

All South Australian centres have state-of-the art modern learning spaces and high-quality educational resources, with age-specific rooms including nursery, toddler and preschool. Outdoor play areas feature bike tracks, climbing forts, water play stations, sand pits, vegetable gardens, space to run, and quiet areas to relax.

Edge’s educational programs support and enhance learning milestones and journeys across all areas of development through four pillars, education, wellbeing, community, and sustainability.

Offering extended opening hours, from 6.30am to 6.30pm from Monday to Friday, to best suit parents and carers, enabling them to get the most out of their allocated subsided hours per fortnight with different session times available.

Edge Early Learning is one of Australia’s most reputable and fastest growing early childhood education groups with more than 50 centres across South Australia, Queensland and the ACT.
