Why did Edge Early Learning open in Pimpama?

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, population data released in 2021 also found the North Pimpama area has a growth rate of 600%.

“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 also uphold our commitment to providing families with access to quality early learning so that all children can have the best start in life.”
