OUR EKL FAMILY
We can’t wait for you to meet our team of passionate, inspiring and knowledgeable educators. Our team are dedicated to providing exceptional care and education for every child in a safe and dynamic environment.
Our team are highly skilled and supported with ongoing development opportunities to ensure the best possible outcome for each child. All of our educators carry a minimum Certificate III in Children’s Services and each room has a Team Leader who holds a Diploma in Children’s Services or a Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood).
At Edge Kids Life, our meal times are about so much more than food! These are rich times of connection and family as we highlight the importance of nutrition and instil an awareness of the importance of healthy eating. All dietary, cultural and medical needs are catered for by our on-site nutritionists and chefs. For more information, please contact our Edge Kids Life team.
At Edge Kids Life, our indoor and outdoor environments are purposely designed to maximise learning opportunities. Our spaces nurture children’s natural curiosities, inspire critical thinking and stimulate imaginative and dramatic play. Our environment is safe and clean with a strong focus on natural, open-ended resource and sustainable practices.
SAFETY AND SECURITY
The safety and wellbeing of children is our utmost priority here at Edge Kids Life.
Our centres are only accessible via single entry security with key code access. Detailed electronic records are kept of each child’s attendance and the child will only be released to people authorised by the family to collect the child. All staff are trained in first aid, asthma and anaphylaxis care. Every educator, visitor and volunteer holds a current Working with Children check and every employee has completed Safe Environments training and are mandated reporters.
FAMILY ASSISTANCE WORKER
At Edge Kids Life, our care and support extends beyond the child into the family network. We employ a specialised Family Assistance Worker to offer our families additional support, resource and connection with the wider community.
To support a safe and secure transition into our care, we offer 3 orientation visits prior to commencing care. These visits are free of charge and provide an opportunity for you and your child to get to know the staff and the environment.
HOURS OF OPERATION
Our centre hours of operation are from 6:45am until 6:15pm, Monday to Friday. We are only closed on public holidays, and there is no charge for these days.
Communication with families is paramount to the holistic care of your child. Here at Edge Kids Life we use a variety of methods of communication, including our online platform Xplor.
Through this website and mobile app our educators and families can interact regarding the care and wellbeing of each child. Features include secure sign in and out, photos, sleep and nappy updates, meal updates, experiences and learning stories.
