Welcome to C&K Coolum
At C&K Coolum Childcare Centre, we welcome children from 0 to 5 years old and provide care and early learning five days a week from 7:00am 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.
Each day children are provided with tasty nutritional meals, this includes morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea. Mealtimes are a wonderful social experience where educators and children are able to sit and discuss plans and discoveries as well as learn a little more about each other.
Nappies are provided for all children who are not yet toilet trained or are in the process of toilet training. When you are ready for your child to progress to toileting independence, our staff are more than willing to support you and your child on this journey.
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 Coolum. 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 Coolum. 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.
