Edge launches virtual at home early learning for pre-schoolers

Published:

SEQ based Edge Early Learning, is one of the first to launch its earlylearning@home program for children unable to attend its centres, providing an interactive and engaging source of activities and resources to keep little minds busy.

With many families self-isolating or unable to attend their local Edge Early Learning childcare centre, the program has been designed by educators to be interactive, engaging and educational for children and families.

Edge Early Learning CEO, Annie Bryce, said the program is a fantastic way to continue children’s early learning and development during these uncertain times.

“We’ve launched the earlylearning@home program to ensure that our families and children have continued access to high quality education programs and can maintain authentic connections with their educators during these times,” she said.

“Our program provides opportunities for parents to play and learn alongside their children with an array of education plans, interactive videos featuring our educators, downloadable content and printable resources.”

Ms Bryce said that regular activity and familiar faces are a key element to keeping little hands and minds busy, while maintaining some semblance of routine in the household for smaller ages.

“Some of the activities include story time, singalongs, arts and crafts projects you can do from home, language and cultural experiences and active movement videos such as yoga. These are shared daily and are available on demand through our Storypark app,” she said.

“In addition to providing quality content, this type of virtual learning is a great sanity-provider for parents who are juggling quite a lot in their homes at this time.”

Available to families enrolled at any of the 16 Edge Early Learning centres across the Gold Coast, Brisbane, Sunshine Coast and Ipswich, content pieces from the education program will also be published online for the wider community across the week.

Families can stay in touch and up to date on the application, by commenting and engaging with educators from their local centre.

“We have already received an incredible response from families since rolling out the programs, and it’s been great to see the engagement from families and educators during what is a surreal time for us all,” said Annie.
