Welcome to C&K Canungra Community Kindergarten.
Situated in the picturesque Canungra township, our beautiful kindergarten is nestled in the tranquil mountains of the Gold Coast Hinterland.
Having opened in 2012, C&K Canungra was awarded an Exceeding National Quality Rating, and the staff are committed to ensuring they continually provide quality programs that cater for all children.
In 2014, the kindergarten was gifted the Yugambeh name Yulburru Jarjems (Happy Children) from the local Wangerriburra people. We are very proud of this name and our beautiful mural by local Aboriginal Artist Derek Fogarty, serves as a reminder of our connections to Country.
At C&K Canungra, we offer a play-based program, which uses the Building Waterfalls curriculum as its guiding document. We have a combined inside/outside program during the morning, and a rolling morning tea. This means that the children are able to eat when they are hungry, and they have greater flexibility in making choices for their own play and activities, which ultimately drives all aspects of our programming.
We actively encourage parental participation in our program, an through our open door policy, parents are welcome at any time.
Excursions and extra-curricular activities are viewed as an extension to our program, and we actively participate in these. To date we have had puppet shows, community excursions, visits from our local police, Wildlife Ranger Shows, and have participated in the Connect with Your Creek Week activities at Canungra State School.
We actively support the children's transition to school through our school library borrowing program, and our Prep visits in term 4 where we meet and work with the Prep teachers.
No two days are the same at C&K Canungra. Our teaching team tailors each day’s learning, taking into account the interests of the children in the group. The spacious and natural environment at our kindy is thoughtfully planned and well resourced. There is a focus on music, drama, literature and visual arts and we allocate plenty of time for outdoor play and discovery.
Community spirit is important to us at C&K Canungra. We foster strong ties to the local community by encouraging parent involvement in the daily operations of the kindergarten. We often hold and partake in community events and love connecting with local businesses and groups around us and taking the children on excursions out into the local community.
