About C&K

C&K - The Creche and Kindergarten Association Limited is a not for profit organisation and has offered the highest standard of early childhood education and care since we bagn in 1907.



With more than 100 years' in early childhood education and care, C&K is regarded as one of Australia's leading providers of childcare and kindergarten.

C&K supports inclusion for all children and this is one of the features that make our C&K services so unique. Providing support and professional development for educators enables the best possible outcome for your child.

In September 2010, the Queensland Studies Authority approved C&K's Building waterfalls teaching and learning guidelines for kindergarten. This is the only independently approved early childhood curriculum in Australia and meets the standards of the Early Years Learning Framework. In late 2019, we are proud to have launched Listening and Learning Together: The C&K Curriculum Approach, for children birth to five. 

C&K is also a Central Governing Body (CGB), which manages and disperses federal and state funding to branch and affiliate services.

  • A branch service is owned and operated by C&K.
  • An affiliate service is owned and operated by a volunteer management committee under an incorporated association.

C&K believes children are capable, competent individuals who are an integral part of a community which nurtures and respects them. That is why more than one million children and their families have experienced the C&K difference.

C&K invites you to let your child experience the C&K difference too.
