Welcome to C&K Banksia Beach Community Kindergarten. We are very proud to introduce you to our Kindergarten which is built on the school grounds of the Banksia Beach State School.
We have been open for 7 years and in this time our wonderful educators and families have worked hard along with support from the community to make this Kindergarten a much loved place to be.
Families and visitors always comment on the welcoming and positive energy of our Kindergarten.
We have been assessed under the National Quality Framework process and we are very proud of our rating EXCEEDING and the fact that we were awarded EXCEEDING in all 7 quality areas. The Educators at our Kindergarten strive for the highest level of care and education each and every day so this rating was validation for our Kindergarten, staff and families.
We acknowledge families as the children’s first teacher and enjoy working in partnerships with families to provide the best possible care and learning opportunities for the children. We have an open door policy and invite families to spend time at our Centre. Our aim is for children and families to feel a sense of belonging and shared pride and ownership in our Centre.
We value children as the unique individuals they are, with individual personalities, interests, knowledge and learning styles. We follow The Building Waterfalls Curriculum which is a play based curriculum which allows children to learn through discovery, exploration and curiosity. We allow children to be co-contributors to the program and be active participants in their own and others learning.
We value natural environments and our children engage with nature and learn about sustainable practices. They readily engage with our worm farm, compost bins, recycling. We acknowledge the Gubbi Gubbi people as the traditional owners of our land and our Kindergarten is a place that reflects and values the First Peoples of this land. Aboriginal and Islander perspective are embedded into our program and all families’ culture and heritage is respected.
Above all we value and respect your children and look forward to seeing you at our service.
We invite you to look around our beautiful centre at any time.
