Welcome

Welcome to Caboolture Apex Kindergarten and Preschool!

Established by the Caboolture Apex Club in 1971, we are a community based association overseen by a parent management committee and run by long-standing, dedicated and highly-qualified staff.

Philosophy

Our philosophy 

At Caboolture Apex Kindergarten and Preschool, we believe:

  • All children are unique, competent and capable learners
  • Qualified, dedicated staff are critical to the development and maintenance of a quality early education program
  • Planned and spontaneous curriculum allows children to actively construct their own learning and promotes self esteem, confidence, curiosity and independence
  • In creating partnerships with families and appreciating the unique perspective each family brings
  • In creating a safe, nurturing, challenging environment where everyone feels valued and respected

To enrol in Kindy, your child must turn 4 by 30 June in the year they participate in the program. If you wish to:

Enrol immediately - please contact the Service Director (via contact details listed) to determine if a place is available. If a place is available, the Service Director will assist you to enrol your child immediately.

For future years - 2021 enrolments and beyond, please contact the Service Director. Our Centre holds a wait list ($15.00 per child) and children can be put on the waiting list from birth. Those on the waiting list will be contacted in the second half of the year before their child is due to start kindergarten. Please remember to keep your contact information up to date. Circumstances change and it is possible that places may become available throughout the year, so please contact the kindergarten for more detailed information.

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).
