Benowa Early Learning Centre

Benowa Early Learning Centre is a family orientated centre, and very much a part of the surrounding community. Benowa Early Learning Centre is privately owned by our Nominated Supervisor, Kylie Alldridge, and Rebecca Tapper, who is the daughter of Jennifer Balson who opened the Centre over 20 years ago. Kylie has been with us since that time. All senior educators have a Bachelor of Teaching, an Advanced Diploma or a Diploma. Other educators either have their Certificate III or are studying. Children have access to two early childhood educators as well as four additional educators studying for their Bachelor of Education.

“Those with higher qualification levels and standards of training are better equipped to provide improved learning environments and mentor other educators in quality practices, leading to better outcomes for children.” Reference: Pg92 Educators Guide to the Early Years Framework for Australia. We believe that in order for us to care for and provide educational experiences of the very highest standard for your child, we must work closely with you, the parents. We recognize that you know more about your child than we ever will. Thus we strive to combine your very detailed information about your child with our professional knowledge about children’s education and development. Our quality staff will ensure your peace of mind.


“It is our vision that each child who comes through our door, joins a community of children, families and teachers engaged in the joy, work and wonder of childhood”.

Children are all individuals and they need to be encouraged to discover and reach their full potential. To achieve this they need a loving, stimulating & non-threatening environment, which nurtures and challenges each individual child. We believe children need a sense of belonging.
