Why choose a C&K childcare centre or kindergarten?

C&K has cared and educated for over one million children since we were established in 1907. We have over 350 kindys and childcares around Queensland, and as a not-for-profit, children come first in everything we do.

Our education program

C&K’s early childhood education curriculum, Building waterfalls, is used in all our kindys and childcares for 3-5 year olds. University qualified teachers guide and support children to be curious, capable and confident learners. Our Birth to Three programme guides how we educate and care for our infants and toddlers. Our philosophy for this age is to slow down and be with your child as they explore the world.
