Trinity Lutheran College has an outstanding reputation in the Gold Coast community. The College focuses on building effective partnerships with parents to provide a comprehensive education of the highest quality, in an environment where a clear foundation of Christian values and care for each person are strongly emphasised.
At Trinity Lutheran College Early Learning Centre (ELC) we provide a safe, secure and supportive learning environment where your child can explore, discover, question and problem solve. It is a place where children can belong and enjoy `being’ 2, 3, 4 or 5 years old. Our educational program stimulates young minds to think independently and promote their own learning. It fosters creativity, challenges thought processes and supports co-operative learning. We accept each child as a capable, unique individual, building on their interests and abilities.
The educators at Trinity Lutheran College Early Learning Centre formulate a program from their knowledge and observations of the children in their care. The Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) and Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guideline (QLKG) form the basis of planning the curriculum.

Services covered by the National Quality Framework have been assessed and rated against the seven Quality Areas of the National Quality Standard and the Education and Care Services National Regulations. The assessment and rating process aims to drive continuous quality improvement for services and provide families with better information for making choices about their children’s education and care. The overall rating for a service is determined by the combination of the ratings achieved in each Quality Area.
Each state and territory Regulatory Authority undertakes the assessment and rating process. The Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority, ACECQA, is responsible for ensuring consistency in assessment and ratings across Australia, assessing services for the Excellent rating and creating awareness in the sector and community about the assessment and rating process.
