C&K Aspley East is a 2 unit community centre with 88 enrolments.
Families can choose to attend:
Monday, Tuesday and alternate Wednesdays, 8:45am - 2:45pm OR

Our Centre was established in 1966 to provide quality, affordable early childhood education and learning to the community in Aspley and surrounding areas, with our motto “where children come first”.
At Aspley East Kindy we pride ourselves on fostering an inclusive community and learning environments in which the diversity and individuality of families and children is recognised and celebrated. C&K believes that the inclusion of all children is a mutually enriching experience for our children, their families, C&K personnel and C&K stakeholders. Individuality and the interdependence of all children, including those from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds and children with additional needs, are appreciated, respected and encouraged by C&K.
We are a not-for-profit organisation and are affiliated with C&K. As an affiliate service the Management Committee must manage the Centre according to C&K operational guidelines and educational standards. C&K is our Central Governing Body (CGB). We receive partial funding through the Queensland Kindergarten Funding Scheme (QKFS) with the remainder of our operational costs covered by the payment of fees from families attending the Centre.

As an existing licensed service we are now deemed as Approved Providers and our Centre as an Approved Service. We have been assessed and determined to be “Exceeding’ the National Quality Standard.

Yes we are accessing Kindy Portal. I love the idea of Kindy Portal, it's been great seeing how the children spend their day at kindy and the variety of activities they do. This is a great addition to Aspley East C & K, I would have loved this when my older children were at Aspley East C & K.
Yes, we are accessing Kindy Portal. It's a great way to get some insight into what's happening at Kindy, both for individual children and the broader group. I really value the opportunity to comment in response to articles too, and Sophie loves seeing the stories and photos.
