Welcome to Beachmere C&K Community Kindergarten
Beachmere C&K is a small community kindergarten with close partnerships with the schools and community groups. We pride ourselves on our beautiful grounds and our sustainable practices. In June 2019, we received our Assessment and Rating results and achieved exceeding across ALL standards in each quality area. We recently received an award from Moreton Bay City Council on our commitment to promoting and embedding sustainable practices. We have also been acknowledged as embedding Aboriginal and Torres Strait perspectives into our kindergarten program.
Families are welcome to call into the kindergarten at any time to see our kindergarten program in action and to meet with us to discuss their children’s learning needs.
We see children as unique individuals who are capable and competent learners. We value children’s unique perspectives on life and acknowledge this by allowing them to drive their own learning through a planned and spontaneous curriculum.
We will empower children to drive the learning that is meaningful to them in the knowledge that there is no right or wrong way to learn. We will promote children’s self-esteem, curiosity, and positive attitudes towards collaborative learning, in a safe, nurturing and challenging environment.
We value children’s individual learning styles, personalities and family backgrounds. We acknowledge that parents and guardians are the child’s first and most important teachers and aim to work in partnership with them to promote children’s learning and development.
As educators, we a life-long learners and are dedicated to professional development and continuous education and training. We value each educators’ contributions, thoughts, experiences, abilities, opinions, strengths, and diversity.
We value and respect the cultural heritage and diversity within our community and encourage parents and guardians to share their values and beliefs with us and the children. We acknowledge Australia’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, the traditional custodians of lands, waterways, and skies across Australia.
