Torquay Road Early Learning & Kinder

Child Care Centre Grovedale

Torquay Road Early Learning and Kinder is a tight knit learning community committed to giving every child the best start they deserve. We offer child care in Grovedale with a rich and diverse educational curriculum designed to support the development of your child’s curiousity and wonder. We have a strong focus on community engagement with meaningful programs like Bush Kinder and regular visits with our local retirement village. We believe this kind of culture is essential to developing a child’s sense of identity, fostering confident learners and thoughtful citizens. Our passionate and highly qualified educators are committed to building positive partnerships with families that support the education and development of every child. The indoor and outdoor environments at our centre deliver the perfect setting for engaging learning experiences and spontaneous moments of excitement and fun. We look forward to welcoming you and your family to Torquay Road Early Learning and Kinder.

At our centre, you will find:

  • Our Bachelor qualified Kinder Teacher is keen to not only get your child school-ready, but to work in partnership you to build a resilient and caring child who is ready to embrace the world.
  • Our onsite cook is making fresh and nutritious meals to fuel your child’s body and mind. We provide breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and a late supper to support your child’s learning and play all day.
  • Our environments are purposefully designed to meet every child at their unique point of development. We understand not every child or family is the same, and our learning spaces reflect that. Like you, we wonder who they will be if we offer them the best start in life…
  • Our holistic curriculum is designed to achieve not only school readiness, but to nurture thoughtful, understanding and tolerant young citizens in a way that makes learning fun. Who knows what amazing ideas lie in these young minds?
  • When we say open-door policy, we mean it. We are here to support families in every way we can. Whenever you need to talk, we are here to listen.

Our fully-funded, all day Kindergarten program is led by a Bachelor trained Early Childhood Teacher. We offer a stimulating curriculum with the aim of building confident and active learners. Using a holistic approach to education, we combine school readiness programs with learning experiences to foster the social and emotional development of young children. Our integrated indoor/outdoor curriculum is child-directed and seeks to engage children in meaningful learning experiences that get them excited about learning and confident to commence their formal education journey.
