Welcome

Welcome to C&K Banyo Community Kindergarten.

We offer quality education and care for children in the year before they attend Prep.  We are a dedicated kindergarten so your child will take part in a quality play-based program with other children their age.

C&K Banyo runs for 40 weeks per year, during Queensland school terms.
 
We are located at 237 Tufnell Road, Banyo.  Our kindergarten is within walking distance of the Banyo train station, local shops and two local schools.
 
Our service offers stimulating indoor and outdoor environments that offer a range of opportunities for children to learn through play.  Our outdoor environment provides children with a welcoming green space that features two large shade trees and garden beds with a variety of plants.
 
Our staff are early childhood qualified and are dedicated to providing a quality early childhood program that supports children to grow, learn and reach their potential.  We acknowledge team work - between educators, children and parents - as the best way to progress our service.  We look forward to welcoming families to our service.

You need to place your child's name on the waiting list for the year they will be eligible to attend. You can download the form here or visit the kindergarten to do so.

We have waiting lists open for the next 4 years so you can place your child on the waiting list before they are old enough to attend. It is important to have your child's name on the waiting list to avoid future disappointment.

Enrolment offers begin Term 2, the year before a child attends. During the enrolment process, you will be contacted by both phone and email. Please ensure you keep your details updated with the kindy to enable a smooth enrolment process. 

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).
