The Hive Torquay offers high quality Early Learning, Kindergarten and care for children from 6 weeks old to school age. The Hive Torquay is a 95 place Centre with 5 rooms. Our nursery room ranges from 6 weeks to 12 months, our toddler one is a 1 to 2 years old room, our toddler two is a 2 to 3 year old room, we also offer a 3year old program and a 4 year old kindergarten program. We are located at 78-80 Beach Road Torquay and are open from 6.30am to 6.30pm.
Our Centre philosophy is inspired by Reggio Emilia, we provide a very ‘child friendly’ way of educating children, allowing them to just ‘be’ children and to enjoy their world surrounding them while also providing age appropriate educational programs that assist in learning and the development of the whole child. Our focus remains on positive physical, social, emotional, cognitive, creative and moral growth.
Hello, my name is Beck and I am very excited to be joining The Hive ELC Torquay.
I have been with The Hive ELC Newcomb (Geelong) for the past 2 years as the Educational Leader and Lead Educator of their 3 year old Kindergarten room. Throughout this time I have seen a significant growth in the centre and am very proud of my contributions to their success.
I have spent the last 16 years in Early Childhood Education and am very fortunate to be given this wonderful opportunity.
I love children, I love families, I love community and I love my profession. I value every individual child for their uniqueness and what they bring to our community. I believe in families being the most instrumental part in their child’s life and appreciate their contributions to their child’s learning.
I cant wait to help Torquay transform into the next phase of exceptional education and quality care.

We take sun protection very seriously at The Hive. Overexposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation causes wrinkles and skin and eye damage, ultimately leading to skin cancer.
UV cannot be seen or felt. It is not like the sun’s light which we see, or the sun’s warmth (infrared radiation) which we feel. Our senses cannot detect UV so it can be damaging without us knowing. There is a huge variation in UV levels across Australia. The UV level is affected by a number of factors including the time of day, time of year, cloud cover, altitude, proximity to the equator, scattering and reflection.
Take away the guesswork of the UV exposure each day by checking out the SunSmart UV widget. The widget shows the sun protection times closest to our centres location, making it easier than ever to be smart about your sun exposure all year.
