Hello my name is Shae Bennett and I am the service manager of Baxter Childcare Centre. I have 6 years experience in Early Childhood Education. I have recently finished my Advanced diploma and am currently studying my Bachelor of early childhood education and primary teaching.


I have a strong passion for working with children and believe that every child has the right to learn and grow. I work together with my team to establish an environment that is safe, secure, homely, calm and nurturing. I believe in being the change we want to see in the world and ensure I guide and support my team to make a difference.


I believe it is important to collaborate with children and their families and to get involved within the community to ensure we are incorporating their input and ideas into the service.


At Baxter Childcare Centre I aim to create a high-quality care service that meets the needs and expectations of our families and focus on continual improvement. My team and I look forward to meeting new families and children and showcasing our beautiful learning environments.


On behalf of our dedicated team, we welcome your enquiries and look forward to sharing your children’s early learning journey with you.
