Leading Edge Childcare is focused on ensuring each child has the opportunity to explore and develop their own identity through play based learning.

To realise the potential of all children, our service provides a nurturing, secure and stimulating learning environment, one that promotes happiness and a strong desire to learn. The primary aim is for children to increase their understanding of the world in which they live through development of broadly based knowledge, skills and attitudes that enable them to take the prerequisite steps in preparation for lifelong learning.

Our passionate and qualified educators design, implement and evaluate innovative and challenging programs that reflect the most contemporary early childhood theory and research that is guided by the Early Years Learning Framework.

We believe that working closely, and building partnerships with families is vital, so children feel like we are an extension of their family home. We acknowledge family values and beliefs which welcomes diversity into our program.

About Us

Leading Edge Childcare Kallangur is a purpose-built childcare centre licensed for 80 children per day. The service opened to the community in January 2023. As this was a new centre build, our company was able to create and have input into our vision by designing large natural play spaces indoors and outdoors.

As this was a new centre build, our company was able to create and have input into our vision by designing large natural play spaces indoors and outdoors catering to children aged 6 weeks to 5 years for our Long Day Care, and 5 to 12 years for our Outside School Hours and Vacation Care.

Our centre design allows our Nursery studio, an outdoor play space that is adjacent to their studio giving them the opportunity to engage in indoor/outdoor play throughout the day, or a space to lay inside and watch the world go by through the large glass sliding doors. 

Our Toddler, Junior Kindy, Pre Kindy and Kindy studios are spacious environments, with large, screened doors that open up onto an outdoor alfresco area and play space that can be accessed all year round. Within this play space there are sensory and vegetable gardens, where the children enjoy weekly gardening classes, and learning about becoming a more sustainable community.

Our Pre-Kindy and Kindergarten studios enjoy a large natural play space that leads off from their studios, with a winding bike path, cubby houses and opportunities for them to develop their fine and gross motor skills.

All of our studios have aircon, as well as ceiling fans and large screened doors for natural ventilation.

All-inclusive to our daily fees are a variety of weekly programs including music, yoga, and bush kindy. We also work closely with local primary schools and have a pre-prep program to support our kindergarten studio’s transition to school. At an additional cost, we also provide Swimming Lessons to children aged 3yrs and older.

To make your drop-offs easier we supply all breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and late snacks with our qualified chef, and nappies, wipes and sunscreen are included in the daily fee.

Our Services & Enrichment Programs

An integral part of our service is to ensure children are actively engaged in the community and feel a sense of belonging. We offer elective swimming lessons, bush kinder programs, local library visits and nursing home visits as part of our Kallangur centre.

Funded Kindergarten Program

Our Funded Kindergarten program is run by a teacher with 18 yrs experience in Early Years Primary School. We also have a Diploma Qualified Educator who supports the teacher within the program.

Our kindergarten children participate in a Prep- Readiness program at Minimbah State School, as well as other extracurricular programs.

Sports Program With Dansland

Our sessions promote the use of movement and physical exercise to achieve good health & wellbeing.

Each week, the activities and games we play progress in difficulty to promote the natural development of your child’s skills and abilities.

Music Program With Dansland

Our music programs are designed to nurture cognitive growth through interactive play and to develop increased motor function.

This is achieved by engaging children through rhythm, rhymes, and sound diversities that develop their emotional intelligence and aid in preparing them for life outside of early education.

Swimming Lessons

Our swimming lessons are with Kickin’ it swim school, who are a family-owned and operated swim school in Burpengary.

They pride themselves on their ability to encourage even the most reluctant child to participate and enjoy their lessons and are dedicated to teaching children how to swim and be safe in and around the water.

 

Bush Kindy and Sustainability Learning

Our bush kindy programs are run by our bush kindy leader who designs programs to support children’s natural curiosity to the outside world. Each program is tailored to an area that support children’s growing advocacy to the natural world whilst promoting sustainable practices so that even our littlest of learners grow with a vision to protect, care and nurture the natural environments.

Library Visits

Our library visits are all about getting out and about in our community and utilising local avenues to create positive connections. Children have the opportunity to engage in library led learning experiences such as storytelling, puppet shows, block play and colouring in, as well as venturing through the library and selecting their own books to read during the visit. With lots of cosy places to hunker down, the library is where we support children’s love for literacy

Gardening Classes

The children participate in gardening classes at the service and learn about sustainability.

Intergenerational program

Our intergenerational program is all about getting out and about in our community and utilising local avenues to create positive change. This program invites children to visit the local aged care home and engage in activities with the elderly to promote positive connections, offer friendship and stimulate, support and nourish the minds of both young and old.
