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.
Hi, my name is Rachael The Centre Director here at The Hive Torquay. I have been in early childcare industry for over 8 years. In that time, I have managed services and been involved in many research projects with The Department of Education and Training. I hold my Diploma in children services and my Advanced Diploma in the community sector. I enjoy studying and being involved in research projects that support the foundation of learning.
My personal Philosophy is providing opportunity and a safe, caring and nurturing environment for the fundamental needs and rights of all children. I also Strongly believe in creating positive and trusting relationships with children, families and educators. I have a passion for forming close relationships with families as I believe this plays a major part in ensuring all children develop to their full potential.

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.
