C&K Biloela Kindergarten

Welcome

Biloela Kindy has been helping young children grow since its inception in 1956. Biloela Kindy has held long associations with the general community and many of todays' parents enjoyed their kindergarten years with us.

Biloela Kindy is run by an elected volunteer management committee comprising of parents from the current years parents group. As a non-profit kindy (with all funds being invested back in to the kindy), the kindy relies on this management to ensure the successful operation of the kindy from year to year.

At Biloela Kindy, we offer a kindy program for children who have turned three years old in the year before they attend kindergarten.

What is kindy?

  • play based
  • teacher delivered
  • part-time
  • non-compulsory

A quality kindy program is the foundation of early childhood education and prepares children for school

Why is a Kindy program important?

The play-based learning of an approved kindergarten program helps prepare children for school and develop skills that are useful for life. Our Kindy program helps prepare children for school and develop skills that are useful for life. Kindy programs:

  • enhance and support social and communication skills
  • build self-confidence
  • encourage physical abilities
  • develop reading, writing and numeracy skills
  • cultivate a lifelong love of learning

What will my child learn?

Approved kindergarten programs develop your child's physical, social, intellectual, language and emotional abilities. They will have opportunities to learn how to:

  • use language to communicate ideas, feelings and needs
  • make friends and cooperate with other children
  • become more independent and confident in their abilities
  • develop self-discipline
  • creatively express ideas and feelings through art, dance and dramatic play
  • identify, explore and solve problems
  • develop reading, writing and numeracy skills

Your child will take part in individual and group activities such as block play, painting, games, puzzles, storytelling, dress-ups, dancing and singing.

Children take part in outdoor physical activities and interact with the natural environment

What is the learning program based on?

All approved kindergarten programs are based on the Queensland kindergarten learning guidelines and Early Years Learning Framework. These guidelines give teachers advice on how to deliver a kindy program that meets national and state quality standards and regulations.

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).
