About Bluebird Early Education Benedict House
Care and Education for Children aged 6 weeks until 5 years
A warm welcome from Bluebird Benedict House, we are dedicated to nurturing a safe, supportive, and enriching environment for children to thrive.
Nestled in the heart of Queanbeyan, our purpose-built Early Education Service offers a haven for children to grow and develop into confident and capable individuals. Our focus on community and belonging fosters strong connections with our families, ensuring that every child feels safe, stimulated and supported on their journey.
At Benedict House, we take great pride in offering a strong sense of community and a sense of belonging. Building solid, mutually beneficial connections with our families and children is something we value in the highest regard, so our children can concentrate on growing and developing feeling respected, comfortable, and supported.
With 7 thoughtfully designed Studios, we provide holistic support to each child, recognising their unique strengths and interests. Our child-centred curriculum encourages exploration, discovery, and growth, laying a solid foundation for their future.
Our outdoor play spaces – including a soccer field, bike track, chicken coop, herb gardens, and an in-ground boat – inspire curiosity and adventure.
At Bluebird Benedict House, our Chef prepares freshly made meals catering for all dietary requirements and needs, in line with Nutrition Australia guidelines. We take all opportunities to educate children on healthy eating practices, from encouraging children to assist in selecting edible plants from our vegetable garden right through to cooking classes throughout the week.
We invite the wonderful families in our community to schedule a tour and discover the Bluebird difference, seamlessly blending modern facilities with the rich heritage of our town.
Meet the Centre Manager
Hello, my name is Rebbecca Hinton, and I am the Centre Manager here at Bluebird Benedict House.
My journey in the Early Education Sector began in 2018 when I started as a Centre Cook. I was fortunate to be offered opportunities to further my education, completing my Certificate III in childcare followed by a Diploma in Early Childhood. Currently, I’m pursuing a Bachelor of Education: Birth to Five Years at Charles Sturt University to deepen my understanding and better support the Children I teach.
Working with children brings me immense joy. I thrive on guiding their learning, nurturing their individual strengths, and facilitating play-based experiences to support their development. I strongly believe in creating a safe and welcoming environment where children can freely express themselves.
One of my key goals is to ensure that all Educators in our Service feel supported, valued, and respected. By fostering a culture of support and appreciation, we can create a nurturing environment for families, children, and our community.
I’m excited to meet you and your family, embark on this educational journey with your child, and warmly welcome you to the Bluebird Community
