Government approved kindergarten

Our government Approved Kindergarten Program is run by a qualified Early Childhood Teacher, who supports children to be curious, capable and collaborative learners. The program is based on children’s emerging interests, with a strong connection to children’s ideas and family input. Read more about our education program here.

Long-standing team

We are proud of our long-standing teaching team, low staff turnover and long-term families. Our families have a strong tradition of involvement in our learning program and centre activities. We know that supportive partnerships with families helps children feel a sense of belonging and warm nurturing relationships are our priority.

Environment reflective of our centre philosophy

We believe in offering children opportunities for play in unhurried and relaxed environments. Our centre philosophy states ‘the environment aims to be aesthetically pleasing, a place where children and adults have spaces to enjoy the beauty of the natural world’. Each room is a space of natural beauty, filled with highset ceilings, homely furnishings and plenty of natural light. Our resources are chosen to stimulate the imagination and promote creativity. Caring for our centre pets instils children with a deep respect for life and awareness of the needs of others.

Exploring the great outdoors

Our kitchen courtyard is a communal, multipurpose space where children of all ages can gather to work in our vegie garden and learn about our native bees. The spacious outdoor play areas are filled with established trees that provide ample shade for children to engage with our open-ended resources as they explore, discover, learn and play. Each age group has their own dedicated play spaces with a large, shared outdoor area for children 3+ years old. Our covered patios and numerous shade sails encourage the children to explore the outdoors in all weather. No two days are the same at C&K Birralee. This is a place where your child will belong, feel safe and make friends… and so will your family.

Enrolment Enquiry

C&K has developed a Infant and Toddler approach which informs the way we care for and educate our babies and toddlers. Our philosophy for this age is to “slow down” and be in the moment with your child as they learn and explore the world. We focus on developing a deep and trusting relationship with each child.

All C&K childcare centres feature the quality C&K kindergarten program. Kindergarten, also known as pre-prep or preschool, is a program for children who are turning 4 by June 30 in the year before they attend school. C&K’s kindy programs are guided by University qualified teachers and support children’s curiosity, creativity, problem solving, resilience and real-world knowledge and skills.

At C&K we know that children do not learn in isolation, learning is a collaborative process between teachers, children and parents. The physical indoor and outdoor environment also plays a part. At C&K we believe children are competent and capable learners, and approach our education program with this in mind.
