Community connection

Torquay early learning centre is owned and operated by a non-profit association set up and head quartered right here in Torquay.  This ensures our focus can be on the quality of our service and staff as we meet our aim of enriching the lives of families in our own Surf Coast community.  Our location within Torquay gives us great accessability to visit places such as the local library, fire station, Elouera aged care and also our local schools to start to build that familiarity for the children as part of our desire to see them become life-long learners.
