At C&K, everyone belongs
C&K is Queensland’s largest early childhood education and care provider with more than 115 years’ experience providing industry leading programs. We have more than 30 childcare centres throughout QLD and our team of dedicated educators and teachers nurture and support children to learn, play, grow and flourish. C&K childcare centres offer quality education and care programs where we focus on a unique infant and toddler approach, as well as delivering a government-approved kindergarten program for four year olds. Best of all, we provide flexible options where you can choose the hours of care to suit your family.
About C&K's Childcare Centres
C&K's childcare centres offer quality education and care for children from six weeks to five years, for up to 12 hours per day.
For babies and toddlers, our philosophy is to slow down and be with your child, as they learn and explore the world. We focus on developing a deep and trusting relationship with each child, partnering with families so that your C&K childcare centre can become an extension of your home.
All our childcare centres deliver a government-approved kindergarten program for four year olds. University qualified teachers guide and support your child to be curious, capable and confident learners.
How much does childcare cost?
Childcare fees for C&K childcare centres are different for each centre and are available to view on the centre’s web page. Fees are updated every year in July. All C&K childcare centres are approved for the Child Care Subsidy (CCS).
In 2024, all eligible-age children accessing a government-approved kindergarten program at a C&K childcare centre is eligible for 15 hours per week for 40 weeks (up to a maximum of 600 hours a year) for FREE in addition to CCS.
Please check your eligibility for FREE kindy below:
- Your child must be of eligible-age (turning 4 by 30 June 2024).
- Only one centre can claim the funding subsidy for your child for FREE kindy.
- If your child is enrolled in another childcare centre, you can only access FREE kindy at one centre, and you will need to choose which centre you'd like the funding applied to.
- If your child is enrolled in a government-approved kindergarten program at a community kindergarten they are not eligible for FREE kindy at our childcare centre as the funding will be applied to the community kindergarten.
A one-off, non-refundable enrolment fee of $100 is required when you complete your enrolment at a C&K childcare centre, to confirm your place. This fee is not subsidised and is issued to cover the administrative costs of your child's enrolment at a C&K childcare centre.
Flexible booking options
We know all families are unique, and so are their routines. We offer flexible booking options, designed to help you maximise your CCS and access to early childhood education and care while minimising out-of-pocket costs.
We have three options available:
- A full day
- 9-hour session
- 10-hour session
Our 9 and 10 hour sessions work in with your schedule with no set start and finish times. They start once your child is signed in.
