Meet Our Mini Maestros Franchisee - Cathy Edgar
It's time to get to know some of our wonderful
franchisees a little better. We asked Cathy Edgar our Bundoora/South
Morang/Ivanhoe/Rosanna franchisee the following questions, so you can
enjoy getting to know Cathy by reading her answers.
Question 1: Assuming you already have food and water,
what 3 things would you take to a deserted island?
- A photo of my family
– I would miss them so much
- My runners – I love
running and a deserted island would be the perfect backdrop.
- Sunscreen – no
Question 2: Who is your favourite band/musician at the
I am an 80’s tragic and listen to 80’s
music everyday – especially fond of Queen /Freddie Mercury and Duran
Duran but my son has recently introduced to me to “The Strokes”, so
digging their music at the moment.
Question 3: What superpower would you like to have and
Time travel – not sure if you would call that a super
power, but I always wish I could travel back in time. I would love to
travel back to the early 1900’s and the 70’s and 80’s again. Maybe
give my younger self some advice and I would give my Nanna the
biggest hug ever – I miss her so much.
Question 4: What are 3 pieces of advice you would give
to a child as they embark on their life’s journey?
Get outside as much as you can – Play. Smell the fresh air and create
wonderful memories of outdoor play so that when you are older you can
look back and reflect on those childhood memories.
Always be polite and learn good manners from a young

Question 5: What’s the best thing about being a Mini

franchisee and Mini Maestros teacher.
A lot has changed over the last 20 years and the best
thing is that the business has adapted as my family has grown. You
couldn’t ask for a better job/business than that.
Mini Maestros has become part of our family and my
hubby and kids love helping out with the traditional “End of Year”
concerts and I actually can’t see me doing anything else.
I also love all the connections I have made with my
wonderful customers and children. I love how they come back with
their younger siblings and continue the Mini Maestros tradition with
them. And the best part is when they tell me how much their child has
loved coming to classes and how they have flourished as their
learning journey continues at school.
I have also meet so many amazing new friends (fellow
franchisees and Head Office staff) and they have become part of my
