Welcome to C&K Arlington Childcare... ‘The Arlington Family’

The Arlington Family has a home-like atmosphere which creates and maintains a warm and relaxed care environment, providing nurturing and rich relationships between our educators and your family. We pride ourselves on providing quality fresh meals each-and-every day. All our meals are prepared onsite, from our Arlington Café by our qualified chef and assistant cooks. Not only do we provide an amazing variety of meals, but we also promote healthy eating through our cooking classes which run in partnership with the children. Our all-inclusive daily fee includes meals and quality nappies. Your child will also receive a complementary C&K t-shirt on their first day of attendance. 

At C&K Arlington, we understand that children are powerful learners from birth, who value their agency and ownership of learning. The educators within our team facilitate the learning and development of every child, through recognising their evolving knowledges, skills, competencies and capabilities. We understand and value the children as capable and powerful learners. 

The Arlington Family is one of diversity and interconnectedness. At our centre, children and families are respected and their cultural ways of knowing, living and doing are valued. We believe this is essential for promoting social and cultural understandings and competencies in children.

Our kindergarten offers a Government Approved Kindergarten Program run by fully qualified and trained early childhood teachers. Based upon C&K’s Curriculum Approach, our enthusiastic Early Childhood Teachers are confident in supporting your child in their learning, development and of course- School Readiness through play-based learning. 

If you are looking for a warm, caring and educational play-based environment for your child then C&K Arlington Drive is the centre for you.

We will contact you when a space becomes available, by the date you added your child to our list and whether your child has been identified as a priority by the Australian government.

C&K has developed a Birth to Three approach which informs the way we care for and educate our babies and toddlers. Our philosophy for this age is to “slow down” and be in the moment with your child as they learn and explore the world. We focus on developing a deep and trusting relationship with each child.

All C&K childcare centres feature the quality C&K kindergarten program. Kindergarten, also known as pre-prep or preschool, is a program for children who are turning 4 by June 30 in the year before they attend school. C&K’s kindy programs are guided by University qualified teachers and support children’s curiosity, creativity, problem solving, resilience and real-world knowledge and skills.
