Church Street Kindergarten was established in 1958 as Wacol Army Village Kindergarten and serviced Wacol, Camira, Darra and the Centenary Suburbs. After the sale of the Army Village in 1987, the kindergarten relocated to Goodna for the Commencement of the 1988 School Year.
The kindergarten is situated in a suburban environment amongst houses. This is a less daunting first step into an educational facility, with only 22 children in attendance unlike hundreds of other children in a school environment. The building is orientated towards a large tree-covered grassy playground with an emphasis on natural materials such as timber and bark.
Church Street Kindergarten & Preschool provides all of the Library, Music & Movement and Language activities available at schools. The centre has extensive indoor and outdoor play equipment and resources which have been purchased and maintained over many years through parent fundraising efforts. We value all of our past and present families as being part of our Church Street Community.
Church Street Kindergarten has a long history of stable and consistent Staff members. Many of our past students return with their own children.

C&K has been successful in securing funding from the Queensland Department of Education for the Great Start to Kindergarten Pre-kindy Program.

To be eligible for the funding, children need to have turned three by 30 June 2022.
Church Street Kindergarten and Pre School is offering a Pre-kindy in a kindergarten program for three-year-olds in terms 3 and 4, 2022.
Please contact the National Translating and Interpreting Service to support families with enrolments, inclusion, and medical needs forms. This service provides clarity to help remove language barriers that impact the child's needs.
Pre-kindy in a kindergarten program
Three-year-old children will attend the existing high-quality community kindergarten program alongside four-year-olds, which will complement and extend children's learning at home. It also provides learning opportunities that are not always readily available in a home context – including building relationships with teachers and learning to cooperate with peers in a group environment.
Attending this program in terms 3 and 4, 2022 will provide children with opportunities to learn alongside older children and provide an individualised and developmentally appropriate approach.
Please contact us for more information or to enrol and secure your child’s place.
