About Benowa Early Learning Centre

The Centre began over 27 years ago, when we converted the old “Surround Lodge” Racing Stable into what is now Benowa Early Learning Centre. Kylie Alldridge, our Director and now co-owner, and quite a few of our current staff have been with us since that time. Many of the girls came to the Centre straight from school and are now married with children of their own who have attended or who currently attend the Centre. Our founder, Jennifer Balson, came from a teaching career herself therefore understanding just how important those early years of child development are.

Now, more than ever, society recognizes that learning begins way before our children first walk through those school gates. Your child begins the learning process even before he/she is born. We, at Benowa Early Learning Centre, feel privileged to share in this process. We also recognise the responsibility we have to ensure your child’s day, whilst at kindy, is as meaningful in all ways as we can make it. Should he/she show an interest in something specific, we try to observe that interest and work with them to develop it. We try to encourage their helpful, caring, developing relationships with other children in the centre and with the staff. We try to help them manage their emotions and behaviour in a way which encourages helpful interaction with others.

It is now well recognized that a strong sense of and acceptance of ‘self’ and how we fit into our family, school and community, is so important in the development of a healthy, rational adult who can contribute to our society. Our aim at Benowa Early Learning Centre is to do our best to enhance the chances that the healthy, happy, positive little person who you the parents have entrusted into our care goes on to be a happy, healthy, positive, knowledgeable adult of whom we can all be proud.

Benowa Early Learning Centre Reviews

  • Brad Illich - 9 months ago

    The centre is very poorly run, my 4 year old's area was shared by lots of older before and after school kids from the school next door each morning and afternoon. It is way overcrowded and the older kids knock the younger ones over. The area where they leave their bags is messy and a shared play area with kids climbing over bags as well as mops and buckets and cleaning items laying around. Staff once forced my child to stay inside all day, they said "I lost his hat", didn't call or provide a spare. Staff said they are sick of loaning out hats and will no longer have spares. I immediately walked to hat holder to find that his hat was sitting in his designated hole all along. My child comes home with shoes full of sand every day because they mostly leave them to play in the sand pit.

    BELC is an outstanding early learning centre, which our kids have been lucky enough to attend for the past 3 years. We could not speak highly enough of Kylie and all of her staff, who create such a safe, caring and encouraging environment for all of the children in their care. They are great communicators and nothing is too much trouble for anyone within the centre. Chris & Rae
