A few words from our Centre Director Sue.

At Edge Mount Barker, we believe that children’s development is enhanced by providing opportunities that encourage children to explore the world, in which they live, through their interests. By providing a safe and secure environment, children discover how to feel confident in who they are and who they want to be. We strongly believe that by offering a flexible, creative, and welcoming environment children will grow to be independent and responsible champions of their world. We welcome you and your family to our early learning centre.


About the Centre

Edge Early Learning Mount Barker, previously known as Where We Grow, provides quality childcare and kindergarten programs tailored to children from 6 weeks to school age. Located in the Aston Hills community on Grantchester Ave, the purpose-built early learning centre is equipped with spacious indoor/outdoor learning areas designed for children to explore and discover new interests. The outdoor childcare areas are designed to promote nature play and are equipped with bike trikes, climbing forts, sandpits, and veggie gardens. We are still run by the same qualified team of passionate educators who are dedicated to providing children with a strong foundation in their early years. Iresha, our Bachelor and Masters Qualified Early Childhood Teacher, delivers an approved Kindergarten program preparing the children for school and instilling them with a love of learning.

At Mount Barker childcare centre, we are passionate about the health and wellbeing of children, which is why our program promotes healthy eating and active lifestyles. Our in-house chef prepares morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea, and a late snack. We cater to all dietary requirements, and we design a balanced menu to provide children with sustained energy throughout the day. Some of the children’s favourite dishes are Butter Chicken, Fish Fillets with Salad, and Homemade Pinwheels.

Families love Edge

From the day we decided to trial our two children at Edge Early Learning, we have felt confident in our choice of daycare centres. I was initially very nervous about returning to work, but the staff have always been so supportive and shown the utmost care for our two. From the regular updates and discussions, I know they are always engaged in so many educational and fun activities. Highly recommend!
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.'
'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!'
