C&K Corbett St Community Kindergarten (previously C&K West End Community Kindergarten & Preschool) has been operating in the heart of West End for over 100 years. Established in 1913 and operating from our current nature – inspired building since 1922, our long-held reputation for providing quality early childhood education in the local community, we appreciate that many children attending our Kindy have parents or older siblings who also attended our Kindy.
Due to the generosity of the Brisbane City Council, our Kindergarten building is insulated and has solar power. Our open plan indoor environment celebrates the Kindy’s history through the thoughtful arrangement of beuatiful, nature inspired, quality learning resources which the children use in a variety of experiences for creative arts, dramatic play, music, project work and quiet learning and reflection.
Our long term outdoor environment upgrade is underway, with the support of Queensland Government grant funding, with our grassed and garden areas already being refreshed, with more work being prepared for outdoor learning spaces.
Children and their families love exploring our substantial outdoor learning environment, which provides a source of natural shade and a haven for birds and insects, as well as a multitude of learning opportunities through active play, sensory play and creative play. This outdoor environment also supports our strong focus on sustainability and the natural world, nature play, and exploring the world through Indigenous ways of learning, knowing and being.
Sustainability, social justice, active community participation and celebrating Indigenous ways of learning and being are the main focus of our curriculum. These underpin all learning experiences at C&K Corbett St Kindy, providing children with opportunities to explore their own identify as an indiividual and as a contributer to the Kindy community and the wider West End community.
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 is important to us at C&K Corbett St Kindergarten. We foster our strong ties to the local community by encouraging parent involvement in the daily operations of the kindergarten. We often host, promote and participate in community events and love connecting with local non-profit and community groups, schools and local businesses in West End and surrounding areas.
