C&K Aspley East Community Kindergarten

Welcome

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

Thursday and Friday, 8:15am - 3:45pm

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.

NQF Assessment & Rating
On 1st January 2012 the National Quality Framework (NQF) introduced a new integrated national approach to the regulation and quality assessment processes for early childhood services. 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.

Parent Testimonials
 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.

Please view our instructions on how to enrol your child to our kindergarten

If you want to enrol your child, please fill out the waiting list application form and return it to the centre.

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, through written documentation in your centre and through StoryPark (an app and website).
