Benowa Hills Early Learning Centre

At Benowa Hills Early Learning Centre we strive to give your little ones a diverse range of experiences, create strong connections and relationships and help them acquire a wealth of new skills and knowledge through our play based curriculum. We understand and implement the importance of inclusivity in all aspects of learning and allow child led moments, connecting with their natural surroundings and following their interests. This is all fuelled by beautiful nutritionist approved and designed seasonal menus with fresh, local produce sourced daily.

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.

At Benowa Hills we take pride in our many weekly extra-curricular classes, including our on-site Gymnastics, Tumble Tots Gym, sustainable gardening workshops, Mindful Yoga classes, Music Lessons and visits from our Local Elder Uncle Allen who helps us embed the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture.

We would like to take this opportunity to familiarize you with our Sister Centre Benowa Early Learning Centre. We work very closely as a team and work in unison & compliment each other. We believe our both of our Benowa Centres are one of the same. We share ideas, passions and wisdom between each other on daily basis.


“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”.

This is the best Early Learning Centre we’ve ever been to. I wasn’t just the happiest mom; I also worked in the centre as a teacher for a while, so I’ve seen all the ins and outs. All the procedures, learning activities, attention, and care from the teachers, safety, cleanliness of rooms, and the kitchen, management – everything is of the highest standard.
I’m not even mentioning gym classes, yoga, gardening, fire truck observations, reptile and farm shows that took place every week or so.
Ms. Kylie set the bar so high; she created such a special place. You can tell that she poured her heart, energy, and experience into her own child, Benowa Hills ELC. Unfortunately, we had to move to Brisbane, and I’ve changed kindies three times already, but we haven’t been as lucky again, not even close 🙁
I’m so grateful to Ms. Kylie and Ms. Bronagh for all the care and love my little Kira received since she was 5 months old. We always felt like a part of a big, loving family.
We miss you so much. Can you please consider opening a branch in Brisbane.

As a first time mother I was extremely choosy when it came to deciding on a day care for my baby. I wanted care where they treated the children as their own, where they were so invested in their education and development as I was and most of all treated them with loving, kindness and attention. I can honestly say Benowa Hills early learning centre have exceeded my hopes for this and I wouldn’t trust any other centre.
As a first time mother putting my bubs into care was nerve racking for me but the educators were extremely sensitive to this with regular updates on how he was travelling throughout the day in those first few days/weeks helped immensely and eased my stress hugely.
The educators he has are absolutely EXCEPTIONAL! They were so welcoming in getting him settled in and now he enjoys it more so than he does at home some days! Along with the educators, this centre go above and beyond with their activities, doing gardening and yoga weekly. Two things that I feel every child should learn. In addition, I couldn’t rave about their menu more! They get fed better than I do! I honestly couldn’t recommend this centre and their staff enough.

Benowa Hills Early Learning Centre exceeds every expectation I have for an early learning centre I would want to send my children to.
My eldest has attended for 3 years and now my youngest is enjoying the same experiences.
I find that the staff and directors are always happy and open to hearing parent feedback and implementing suggestions to help care for your children. It’s warm and friendly and very clean!
They also recently allowed my daughters and I to fundraise on premise for a childrens charity. Their morals and ethics are very high and admirable when it comes to caring for and supporting all children. Thank you BHELC!

Benowa Hills Early Learning Centre acknowledges the Aboriginal and Torres Strait islander people as the original inhabitants of Australia and recognises their culture as part of the cultural heritage of all Australians. We will increase our knowledge of indigenous Australians history, heritage, culture and current issues through professional readings, cultural competency network, and professional development and opportunities. Young Children are learning to live within that diverse world and embrace our community’s cultural diversity. Educators will foster children respecting that diversity.
“We acknowledge, respect and hour, the Traditional Owners and Custodians. Australia’s’ first people of this land, their Elders (past, present and future) of the Yugambeh Language Group of People Bundajalung Nation. We treasure their land on which we live on, recognise the true history, value their continuing connection with this land and waters”
