Our Centres

Childcare Centres of Excellence runs two beautiful, purpose built childcare centres, Benowa Early Learning Centre and Benowa Hills Early Learning Centre, that are both owned and run by Kylie & Russell Shipman.

We are proud that our centres each have a strong team of Educators and Teachers who are highly qualified and trained and are guided by a passionate management team to ensure each child receives the highest quality care and early education.
We value the importance of Community and enjoy building strong supportive networks for the children, families, educators and staff members.

Both of our centres have unique grounds and classrooms that are designed to inspire fun and joy, while fostering a love for being for learning. Our centres experience very similar daily activities and extra-curricular programs such as Yoga, Sustainable Gardening sessions & Music lessons. Both of our centres share the same healthy, nutritionist-run kindy kitchen menus, with all meals provided.
