Edge Early Learning is an extremely high-quality childcare provider and has centres in 14 locations in Southeast Queensland including West End, Strathpine and Milton. Full day childcare for all ages costs $120 per day with all meals and nappies included.
Edge CEO Annie Bryce said: “At Edge Early Learning we strive to be Australia’s best in early childhood education and our philosophy is to provide a supportive and gentle environment in which to learn, give children a strong sense of belonging and community and promote health and well-being.
“We’re looking forward to beginning our partnership with North Harbour and becoming a part of this great new community.”
The North Harbour centre will be one of the first centres within the Edge network to provide children with eco-friendly nappies and wipes which is part of the company’s move towards sustainability. Made from 100% pure bamboo, these eco-friendly products are completely biodegradable.
Edge Early Learning Chief Executive Officer, Annie Bryce, said the move to switch over to sustainable products is one of the company’s priorities. “We have been planning to switch to more sustainable products for quite some time. These products are completely natural, which is perfect for children with sensitive skin, and they’re also good for the environment.”
As part of the initiative to move toward sustainability, Edge Early Learning has also swapped to plant-based cleaning products and include end-to-end recycling programs in all centres. The team will also be incorporating vegetable gardens, worm farms and compost bins into their educational programs to help teach children about the importance of sustainability.
The new North Harbour centre is currently accepting enrolment enquiries. In the lead up to the open date families are encouraged to submit an enrolment enquiry by registering through My Family Lounge on their website.
