C&K Albany Creek Community Kindergarten


Welcome to Albany Creek Community Kindergarten. A place where play takes centre stage in your child’s education and where children are given time to explore, discover and learn!

Our Kindergarten acknowledges and pays its respect to the Turrbal people, the traditional custodians of the land on which our Kindergarten is placed. We acknowledge and pay our respects to all elders’ past, present and emerging.

Albany Creek Community Kindergarten has been serving the local community since 1972. We offer a Government Approved Kindergarten Funded Program in a variety of flexible enrolment options, including two 5-day fortnight programs, two longer day programs and a Young Kindergarten program. We also offer our unique Bush Kindy program within each of our Kindergarten classes.

Our passionate teachers and teaching assistants are highly qualified and experienced. They are experts in teaching children from 3 – 5 years and establish a love of life-long learning.

Our purpose-built building and expansive outdoor play spaces are designed to nurture children’s development in a caring community environment. 

Children have the stability of the same teachers and the same children attending Kindergarten every day of their attendance. This allows us to offer continuity and extension of learning for each child, from one day to the next.

For our Young Kindergarten program, children must turn three before 1 March in the year of their attendance.

Kindergarten, also known as pre-prep or preschool, is a program for children in the year before they attend school. When places are available, 3-year old children can attend.

C&K's kindergarten programs are guided by university-qualified teachers and support children to be curious, capable, and collaborative learners.

At C&K we know that children do not learn in isolation, for us learning is partnership between teachers, children, parents, and communities. 

All C&K centres feature Listening and Learning Together: The C&K Curriculum Approach. The learning outcomes in our approach align with both The Early Years Learning Framework for Australia (EYLF), and the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guideline (QKLG).

Our approach continues the longstanding traditions and philosophical commitments of C&K to our children, families and communities. Read more about the history of C&K.

We've designed our indoor and outdoor spaces to ignite imaginations, nurture healthy minds and bodies, as children explore, experiment, play and learn.

Learning through play is an integral part of our education program. Our educators skilfully enrich and extend on children's play experiences, creating a learning program that is tailored and meaningful for your child.

Your child's learning journey is shared with you via conversations with your child's educators, and through written documentation.
