Welcome

C&K Corbett Street Community Kindergarten (previously C&K West End Community Kindergarten) has been operating for 100 years in the heart of West End. With our long-held reputation for providing quality early childhood education in the local community, it's heartening to note that many children in our care have parents who also attended our kindy.

The original building has a lot of character and dates back to 1919. Inside, it is open planned and spacious, so the children have a large environment to explore. Two substantial outdoor spaces are also used by the children.

Sustainability is a priority at C&K Corbett Street. Our centre has been insulated thanks to a Brisbane City Council Sustainability Grant and solar panels were installed on our roof so that in the future we will be able to generate our own power. We incorporate sustainability practices and projects into our curriculum which are embraced upon by the children.

Music is at the heart of our curriculum and this is supported by a Kodaly trained music teacher who visits both groups each week.

Child-Led Learning 

No two days are the same at C&K Corbett Street. 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 

Community spirit is important to us at C&K Corbett Street. We foster our strong ties to the local community by encouraging parent involvement in the daily operations of the kindergarten. We often hold and partake in community events and love connecting with local businesses and groups around us.

Don’t miss out on a place, enrol your child today. You can:

  1. Enrol now  Please call us on 07 3844 1885. You may be able to enrol immediately if a place is available. If a place is not available, we will place your child on a waiting list.
  2. Enrol later  Please click the “Enrol online” button above and fill out the form. You will be added to a queue and contacted as soon as a suitable place is available. Places are usually offered for the following year, between May and July the year before.

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 can 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. 

All C&K centres feature Listening and Learning Together: The C&K Curriculum Approach. The learning outcomes in our approach align with both The Early Years Learning Framework for Australia (EYLF), and the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guideline (QKLG).

Our approach 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, through written documentation in your centre and through StoryPark (an app and website).
