Welcome to C&K Bald Hills Community Kindergarten.

We respectfully acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the lands on which our services is placed. C&K Bald Hills Community Kindergarten also pays respects to all Elders past and present.
C&K Bald Hills Community Kindergarten was opened in 2012 and offers the community a Government Approved Kindergarten Funded program. Our purpose built building is collocated on the grounds of Bald Hills State School. We have a wonderful outlook of the local environment including the Bald Hills State School oval, farm land with various farm animals and wild life, the train line, and the Bald Hills Flats. Being on the campus of Bald Hills State School has provided opportunities for the children to wave and call our to siblings on the school oval, watch events such as 'sports day' and see the seven news helicopter visit. We have also had the opportunity to visit the school library, have lunch in the prep area, and visit the Bald Hills State School Forestry.

Parent roster

Parents of children enrolled in the program are invited to participate in a parent roster. A calendar will be available in the foyer at the beginning of each term for parents to add their name next to a preferred date. If you do come in on roster please don’t feel the need or ‘pressure’ to do something ‘special’ or ‘extravagant’. Less is often more! Interacting with the children in their natural play sandpit, reading books, dressing up – can offer more learning opportunities than special planned activities. For those who would like to contribute more – other suggestions may include cooking experiences and maintaining our vegetable garden with the children.

Parent Advisory Group (PAG) Meetings

PAG meetings are held each term at C&K Bald Hills Community Kindergarten. The PAG is an informal group co-ordinated by the director of the service. Membership is made up of parents who have children currently attending the service. Meetings aim to be a relaxed get together for sharing ideas and participating in fruitful discussions. PAG members may facilitate social activities for the service. These may be used to connect and support the community.

Children’s library book borrowing program

Our 2012 Parent Advisory Group led the establishment of the C&K Bald Hills Community Kindergarten Library. Each year, families have been asked to donated quality pre-loved or new books to the library. We would like to continue this tradition and ask each family to donate a book to the book borrowing library program. Each book will be labelled with the year and the name of the child who donated the book. Book borrowing will commence in the third week of term 1. Each child will require a library bag. Parents are invited to participate in a roster to assist with checking books in and out. We will also ask for volunteers to assist with contacting library book covers. Many children have enjoyed participating in library book borrowing and we thank everyone for their past donations.


We are a SunSmart centre, which means we encourage parents to ensure their child attends our service in appropriate clothing. C&K logo t-shirts and hats are recommended for their sun safety. These will be available for purchase prior to commencing the kindergarten year.

What year should my child attend kindy?

This table shows the year the Queensland government recommends your child attends kindergarten. Children aged 4 years old by June 30 in the year they attend kindy are also called ‘Eligible age’ or ‘Target age’.

1 July 2018 to 30 June 2019 2023
1 July 2019 to 30 June 2020 2024

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 may be able to 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. 

Our curriculum approach, Listening and Learning Together, aligns with both The Early Years Learning Framework for Australia (EYLF), and the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guideline (QKLG).

It 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 in your centre, and in some centres through StoryPark (an app and website).

Kindergarten Fees

The following table outlines the daily fees for eligible-aged children (children turning at least 4 by June 30 of the year attending kindy). 


Daily Fee

Full kindergarten fee.


If you are eligible for Kindy Plus, your child will attend kindy for FREE.


If you are eligible for the Family Tax Benefit, you will receive a subsidy of $3,544 per year.


If you are not eligible for Kindy Plus or Family Tax Benefit, you will receive a subsidy of $1,500 per year.


Only one centre can claim the relevant funding subsidy for your child.  If your child is enrolled in another kindergarten program (for example, in a childcare centre or another kindergarten) while they are enrolled at our centre, you need to choose which centre receives the funding.

Other Fees


Daily Fee

A one-off, non-refundable fee when you confirm your enrolment**


(one-off fee)

*Non-eligible enrolments include children born on or after 1 July 2019 (they will not turn four by 30 June 2023), children who are enrolled in two kindergarten groups at the same centre and are therefore ineligible for the Queensland Kindergarten Funding for the second group, and children claiming the Queensland Kindergarten Funding at another centre.

**If you are eligible for the Kindy Plus subsidy your enrolment fee will be waived.

Am I eligible for the Kindy Plus or Family Tax Benefit subsidy?

Subsidies are funded by the Queensland and Australian governments.  All children of eligible age (turning at least 4 by June 30 in the year they attend kindy) are eligible for a subsidy of $1,500 per year.

Please visit the Kindy savings website and select sessional kindy for Step 1 to check your eligibility for the Kindy Plus and Family Tax Benefit subsidy.

You will need to show proof of your eligibility when you enrol, which will differ depending on the subsidy you are eligible for.

What if I want my 3 year old to go to kindergarten?

Priority is given to eligible-aged children but if there are places available, we are happy to have 3 year old children at kindy and attend for 2 years.  The subsidies do not apply for 3 year old children, and the non-eligible enrolment kindergarten fee will apply.  Please contact us on 07 3261 4853 for more information on fees for 3 year olds and to discuss your child and your family’s situation.

I have more questions.  Who can I talk to? 

As a not-for-profit, we aim to keep fees affordable for families and have developed a fee system to maximise family access to available subsidies.  Please visit our Kindergarten Fees Frequently Asked Questions page for more information.  You can also read more about C&K’s fee policy here

If you have any other questions, please contact us on 07 3261 4853.
