Fourth Gold Coast North Centre for Edge Early Learning to Meet the Demand for Quality Education

Dozens of families living on the northern Gold Coast will have more access to quality
early childhood education as one of Queensland’s fastest growing and leading early
learning groups, Edge Early Learning, opens its fourth centre in the growing region.

The new Edge Early Learning centre will open at 99 Village Boulevard, Pimpama this month
and will welcome 130 children aged 6-weeks to school age.

Edge Pimpama Village will be the fourth purpose-built site within the Pimpama area and the
sixth location on the Gold Coast.

Pimpama Village grows Edge’s total enrolment capability for the northern Gold Coast by 130
places per day for a total of 473 places per day across the existing northern gold coast
locations, including Charles Avenue and Old Pacific Highway in Pimpama, and Vanes Street
in Coomera.

Edge Early Learning CEO, Annie Bryce said the decision to develop and open another site
within the area was due to the demand by families who are seeking access to quality early
education and care.

“Edge Pimpama Village will play an important role in the development of the suburb’s next
generation which is growing rapidly,” she said. “We are committed to delivering an
exceptional early learning experience so that all children in our care can discover their full
potential and start school with a love of learning.”

“Our Edge team is excited to be able to extend our offering to more families within the
community. We have waitlists at all three existing centres and have already had plenty of
interest for Edge Pimpama Village.”

Almost 25,000 people reside in Pimpama and there are more than 6,600 families, with more
than 2,600 children between the age of 0 and 4 residing in the suburb, according to the
Australian Bureau of Statistics. Adding to this, data released in 2021 also found the North
Pimpama area a growth rate of 600%.

“Edge Early Learning was established in Brisbane in 2017 and the first locations we opened
were in West End followed closely by Pimpama, Charles Ave. It’s humbling to be growing as
a leading childcare centre group and meeting the needs of the ever-increasing Gold Coast
population, especially in the development and growth area of Pimpama,” Ms Bryce added.
“We now have more than 50 centres spanning locations in Queensland, South Australia and
the ACT. Our aim is to continue developing state-of-the-art centres that facilitate the demand
in the community, and uphold a commitment to providing families with access to quality early
learning so that all children can have the best start in life.”

The newest Pimpama site, located opposite Pimpama Shopping Village, will feature modern
indoor learning resources, and include seven age-specific rooms specially designed for ages
of nursery, toddler and kindergarten. Outdoor play areas will feature bike tracks, climbing
forts, water play stations, sand pits, vegetable gardens, space to run, and quiet areas to
relax.

In addition to education and care, Edge is leading the way in the early childcare industry
offering daily nutritious meals that cater to all dietary requirements, offering mindfulness
activities such as yoga, and incorporating sustainable practices such as utilising bamboo
nappies and wipes, sunscreen, and use of environmentally friendly cleaning products all
included in the daily fee.

With opening hours from 6.30am to 6.30pm from Monday to Friday, the new Edge Pimpama
Village location aims to offer different session times to best suit families and enables parents
and carers to get the most out of the allocated subsided hours per fortnight.
With the backing of a passionate team of experienced educators, Edge’s educational
programs support and enhance learning milestones and journeys across all areas of
development through its four pillars, education, wellbeing, relationships, and sustainability.
Edge Pimpama Village have a strong team of educators – including Centre Director, Kathryn
Watson and Early Childhood Teacher, Angela Jackson.

Edge Pimpama Village will soon be open for tours from 20 February which families can book via
edgeearlylearning.com.au/pimpama-village, and the centre will officially open to the public
this month. Once registered on the waitlist, applicants will receive an email to be one of the
first to tour the new centre.
