Qualified Educators delivering Kindergarten Program
“Art has the role in education of helping children become like themselves instead of more like everyone else.” – Sydney Gurewitz Clemens
Here at Edge Strathalbyn we strive to provide a warm, welcoming, and nurturing environment to the children in our care. It is our goal to create:
A place for each child to belong. A place for each child to be whatever they want to be. A place for each child to become a strong, confident, and inquisitive learner. We pride ourselves on an inclusive and welcoming centre. We at Edge Strathalbyn are not just a team but a family, we mirror this in our everyday practices and welcome new families to join our family.
Edge Early Learning Strathalbyn, previously known as Where We Grow, provides quality childcare and kindergarten programs tailored to children aged six weeks to school age. Our newly acquired childcare centre is still run by the same close-knit team of qualified educators who are passionate about providing children with a strong foundation in their early years. Our Educators encourage children to explore new interests, and we celebrate these together as we learn through a range of different topics such as culture, wellbeing, sustainability, numeracy and literacy, relationships, senses, emotions, and more! We display our work proudly around the room and invite families to come and experience what we have been learning about. Our outdoor areas are designed around the natural elements of Strathalbyn and are even equipped with two chickens who live in our centre chicken pen.
We are passionate about the health and wellbeing of your children at our Strathalbyn childcare centre, which is why our program promotes healthy eating and active lifestyles. Our in-house chef, Tamika, prepares breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea, and a late snack for the children and caters to all dietary requirements. Tamika is passionate about providing a range of meals that cover different cuisines and expose children to different flavours and ingredients. Some of the children’s favourite meals are Chicken & Pineapple, Quesadillas, Traditional Bolognese, and Vegetable Fried Rice.
