Little Country Kids Club Inc

Welcome to the Little Country Kids Club (LCKC), Cecil Plains.

LCKC is a non-profit community based Limited Hours Care and Kindergarten Service (on the same day) located half an hour from Dalby, 40 minutes from Pittsworth and Millmerran and an hour west of Toowoomba. Managed by a volunteer parent committee and licensed under the Queensland Education and Care Service Act and Regulations, the Little Country Kids Club operates every Monday, Tuesday and alternate Wednesdays during school term. Subsidies may be available, please enquire within.

  • Mondays - 8:45am-3:00pm
  • Tuesdays - 8:45am-3:00pm
  • Wednesdays (alternate) - 8:45am-3:00pm 

As a service we cater for children from 2 ½ years to school age with our Bachelor trained Early Childhood Teacher Angela McWhirter and long-term Educator Lisa Jannusch. The Little Country Kids Club offers a Kindergarten program for children in the year prior to prep and works with the Early Years Learning Framework. Our centre has a wonderfully spacious outdoor play area and a stimulating indoor environment that offers a range of opportunities for children to learn through play.

We believe in the intrinsic and unique abilities of each child, the significant importance of families as a child’s first teacher and role of the community in the growth and development of each and every being. We are currently taking enrolments and very much look forward to hearing from 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).
