New centre opening in 2023!
C&K Carseldine Community Childcare Centre is relocating less than 300m from our current site into a brand-new facility within the Carseldine Village precinct.
We anticipate the brand-new facility to be completed early to mid 2023 and will work with all of our families to ensure a smooth transition to the new centre.
The new centre will enable C&K to welcome and cater for more families in 2023 and we encourage families to waitlist now to secure a place for their child.
The space will prioritise nature play and outdoor spaces and feature a full kitchen with an on-site chef preparing fresh meals daily.
Our wonderful centre director, Harriet Star, and the team at C&K Carseldine Community Childcare Centre, look forward to welcoming you and your child.
Welcome to C&K Carseldine
At C&K Carseldine Community Childcare Centre, we welcome children from 6 weeks of age to 5 years old and provide care and early learning five days a week from 6:30am to 6:00pm.
As a home away from home, our environment provides a safe, secure and supported space for your child. Our dedicated, friendly and qualified staff nurture play-based learning, fostering a life-long love of learning. Our families love our large natural outdoor area, where we encourage children to explore, discover, play and engage in nature.
We have a wide range of cultural and linguistic background with our families and staff. This provides us the opportunity to incorporate these cultures and languages throughout the centre. Our approach to inclusion and diversity ensures that every child, family and staff member feels safe, welcomed and important.
Infant and Toddler Approach
At C&K we are exploring new approaches for the educators that care for and educate our littlest people at C&K childcare centres. The Infant and Toddler approach, which we have developed, is all about being in the moment with your child. Our philosophy for this age group is to “slow down” and be in the moment with your child to allow them the opportunity to learn and discover at their own pace. We are focused on spending one-on-one time with babies and toddlers and developing deep and trusting relationships with each individual child.
No two days are the same at C&K Carseldine. Each day’s learning is driven by the interests and ideas of the children. The spacious and natural environments within our centre are thoughtfully planned and well resourced, with opportunities to meet the needs and interests of all children who attend. This is achieved through the provision of combined indoor and outdoor play opportunities throughout the day. Play offers children many opportunities to develop friendships, explore, solve problems, help others, imagine, create, and extend on their interests.
Community spirit is important to us at C&K Carseldine. We foster strong ties to the local community and encourage parent involvement in the daily operations of the centre. We often hold and partake in community events and love connecting with local businesses and groups around us.
