Camira Kindergarten Assoc Inc

Welcome to Camira Kindergarten!

We operate a five day fortnight every school term, the Yellow Group attend Monday, Tuesday and every second Wednesday or the Green Group attend every second Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. 
Our opening hours are 8.30am to 2.38pm.

We have friendly, qualified teachers and assistants who welcome the families each day and encourage parent participation and involvement in whatever capacity parents can give.

We offer beautiful natural play spaces for children to explore and create their imaginative play - sand pit, mud patch, bushland, real grass and really large established trees.  Our indoor environment is so homely, attractive and welcoming, that some people think our building is a converted house.
• We are a well established Kindergarten that first opened our doors in 1988;
• We are a non-profit community kindergarten, owned and operated by a committee made up of parents of our enrolled children;
• We are extremely well-resourced due to 25 plus years of being a well-managed kindergarten; and
• All proceeds from fundraising go back into improving the building and grounds, purchasing new equipment, and providing for additional needs staff.

Teachers: Ms Lauren Watson (B.Education and B. Early Childhood Education) and Ms Amanda England (B. Arts in Sociology & Anthrapology and Grad. Dip of Education (Primary) and working towards Dip. of Early Childhood Education and Care).

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 can 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. 

All C&K centres feature Listening and Learning Together: The C&K Curriculum Approach. The learning outcomes in our approach align with both The Early Years Learning Framework for Australia (EYLF), and the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guideline (QKLG).

Our approach 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, through written documentation in your centre and through StoryPark (an app and website).
