Welcome to Tarneit Early Learning Centre where we support every child to learn and grow at their own pace and in their own unique way.

We welcome children from six weeks to school age, with a four year old kindergarten program. We offer a secure and safe environment where curiosity is encouraged, concepts are explored and discovery is celebrated. The children experience the power of learning together in large and small groups while still pursuing their own individual learning pathways.

At Tarneit ELC we believe that it takes a village to raise a child therefore we are eager to be active partners and create collaborative relationships with families and their community.

  • What Our Families are Saying

    Excellent child care center. My daughter is just over 2 and has been going here for 18 months. She loves it, she is always very happy to be left there. The carers are all fantastic and very professional. You can tell they love what they do.

    The facility is well maintained & they come up with various activities that help my son's learning and development. They are also open to feedback and suggestions (e.g. in term of program and menu). Parents are invited to participate in some in-house events they are organising, which is great.

    I cannot even begin to describe how much I love this childcare. We began here when my now 5-year-old was 18 months, a very shy and anxious little girl who now has completely flipped and is the most social, polite and happy little girl there could be. I owe this to the dedicated carers at the centre!

    I have 2 little ones that attend here. 2.5 years ago I did a lot of research in the area to ensure I was sending my child to the right place. I'm so happy I did choose for my little ones to attend here. My little girl gets excited about going here and even wakes up earlier so she can go!

    The centre openly seeks feedback from its community of parents, from suggested menu options to suggestions for excursions/incursions for the kinder kids. Highly recommend the centre!
