About Balga Early Learning Centre

The Salvation Army Balga Early Learning Centre (ELC) has been a part of the Balga community for over 30 years.

We strive to combine quality learning in a comfortable, friendly, family-based environment that gives your child a real sense of belonging. Our extensive experience in childcare and vast knowledge of a child’s development in the early years of life means that as a parent, you will be choosing the best possible care and education experience for your child.

At Balga ELC, we want to: 

  • Support children to be the best they can be
  • Nurture and cultivate your child’s personality
  • Positively impact our community by sustaining good relationships with all families
