A few words from our Centre Director Karen.

I believe that our childhood experiences shape the type of adults we become. Through active exploration during play our children experience self-discovery, embrace being challenged and reflect on lifelong concepts that support their future growth and learning.

Our children learn and explore through play, with our Educators continuing to support families through links to home-life routines and building strong relationships with our families.

We welcome you and your family to book a tour, meet our team, and experience the centre for yourself.


About the Centre

Edge Early Learning Port Augusta, previously Paisley Park, provides quality child care and kindergarten programs tailored to children aged from 6 weeks to school age. The centre was designed around the suburb’s native Australian flora with natural outdoor learning spaces equipped with bike tracks, sandpits, nature play stations, and more!

Our team of qualified kindergarten educators are passionate about exposing children to a range of different educational topics, such as STEM-based experiences, cooking lessons, and sustainability experiences. Our team is committed to ensuring your child is prepared for school developmentally, socially, and emotionally. At Edge Port Augusta, we implement an inquiry-based approach, where children are encouraged to ask questions, explore new ideas, and learn through play. This type of learning is particularly beneficial in developing problem-solving and communication skills. We aim to foster strong relationships with their peers, helping build their confidence as they move into our Kindergarten program and school.

We value the relationships we have with our families and within the Port Augusta community. We offer monthly date nights for families and stay connected with our local businesses, schools, and community services. With long childcare hours to enable easy drop-off and pick-up, quality education curriculums, nutritious meals catering to all dietary requirements, and a supportive daycare community, Edge Early Learning Port Augusta will help set your child up for success.

  • On-site parking for easy drop-offs & pick-ups

Families love Edge Port Augusta

'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 prompts with our 4 year old 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
