Our Team

Welcome to Benowa Early Learning Centre

Welcome to Benowa Early Learning Centre, an exceeding child care centre determined to help every child excel and grow. We are a centre that prides itself on creating an environment that fosters every child to thrive.

Kylie Shipman, who has been with us since Benowa Early Learning Centre first opened in 1993, was then a Teaching Director and now is the current owner alongside her Husband Russell Shipman. In 2017 Kylie & Russell, along with previous part owners, built, created and opened our beautiful sister centre, Benowa Hills Early Learning. Kylie and Russell are very passionate owners who are on site at both of our Centres to ensure they provide the highest level of care for every child, family and staff member.

“As parents, we know how much we want the best for our children. At Benowa Early Learning Centre we share the goal in seeking to give our children every available opportunity to excel, grow and develop in a secure, comfortable learning environment. We strive to ensure your parental and child’s needs are met with an understanding and supportive nature as we understand the importance of peace of mind when you leave children in the care of others.

For our centre to ensure we continue to provide this amazing environment we must also focus on our education of our educators. Their job security, wellbeing, professional growth and development are very important to our quality existence and the security of the children in our care.

So, Welcome to Benowa Early Learning Centre – a Happy, Secure, Exceptional, and Exceeding centre”
