About our kindy
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 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 Affiliated Centre
As an affiliated centre of C&K, Church Street kindy receives support from C&K as the Central Governing Body but operates as an independent incorporated association, managed by a volunteer management committee. Centres affiliated with C&K receive comprehensive support in governance including managing kindergarten and inclusion funding, training for committees and educators, advice, and support regarding inclusion, use of the C&K brand, curriculum approach and resource materials.
No two days are the same at Church Street kindy. Our teaching team tailor each day’s learning taking into account the interests of the children in the group. The spacious environment at our kindy is thoughtfully planned and well resourced. There is a focus on music, drama, literature and visual arts and time spent discovering the natural environment outdoors.
Community spirit is important to us at Church Street kindy. We foster our strong ties to the local community by encouraging parent input and involvement in the daily operations of the kindergarten and programming decisions. We often hold and partake in community events and love connecting with local businesses and groups around us.
