Welcome to Burpengary Community Kindergarten. Our small kindergarten was established in 1986 by members of the local community. We are a not-for-profit organisation and have been affiliated with C&K since 1990.
Nestled amongst trees, just off Henderson Road at Burpengary, you will find a beautiful natural learning environment for young children and families. Burpengary Kindy is recognised as a high quality kindergarten service rated as Exceeding National Quality Standards. We offer an exciting, challenging, inclusive and culturally safe play based learning program which allows children to engage, develop and learn at their own pace.

We have two qualified early childhood teachers/directors, two qualified co-educators and a qualified additional needs assistant. All staff participate in on-going professional development programs each year. Our office administrator is available on Tuesdays and Thursdays (9am-2pm) for any questions.

At the heart of our philosophy is a commitment to embrace, include and value the uniqueness of each child as an individual, as a loved member of a family and as part of a community.

We are positive your child will enjoy their time here with us and look forward to sharing time with you and your family as well. We offer an open invitation to families to play an active role in the centre and input to our programming. 

We greatly encourage you to visit us and consider our centre for your child/children. We very much look forward to meeting you.

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).
