Inverloch and District Pre-School is located in the beautiful coastal town of Inverloch, in the Bass Coast Shire and services families within Inverloch and the surrounding district.

50 Years of Early Years Education
In 2019, we celebrated 50 years in our current location. In order to establish the Preschool, families in our community raised money through fundraising activities for 3 years, and with the help of the Woorayl Shire, our current buildings were officially opening on 20th May 1969.
We are managed by YMCA Early Years Management. The YMCA and Educators are supported in our community by a Parent Advisory Group comprised of parents and family members of current children who attend the centre. The Parent Advisory Group's main focus is fundraising for our Pre-School.
We offer sessional kindergarten programs for children, catering for the diverse needs of families. Our kindergarten programs for three year old children are three hours per week and our Government funded Four-Year-Old programs provide fifteen hours per week. Our educational programs are play-based and focus on children's strengths, needs and interests. The learning experiences provided for children are set up in beautiful and inviting ways. Equal importance is placed on both the inside and outside learning environments.
We build strong respectful partnerships with
children and families and we have close ties with the local community. We have a
strong partnership with the Inverloch Primary School which assists in children’s
successful transition to school.
Our friendly educators are passionate about
providing high quality programs for children and keeping up to date with current
