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.
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.
