Coronavirus | C&K - childcare and kindergarten

Coronavirus

Our first priority is the health and safety of our children, families, and staff. We are closely monitoring the COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation and are following advice from government agencies.

C&K recommends families follow the Australian Government Department of Health advice for parents of children in early childhood centres.

Please contact your kindergarten or childcare centre director if your child is unable to attend because of coronavirus.

Keep sick children at home

If your child is unwell or has flu like symptoms, please keep them at home and seek medical advice. You can call 13HEALTH (13 43 25 84) or speak to your GP.

Who can I contact?

We have a dedicated team who can advise families and staff.  If you have any questions relating to COVID-19, please email us:

We are experiencing a very high volume of calls and emails, please bear with us. We are working hard to answer your questions as quickly as we can.

Letting us know about a case of coronavirus (COVID-19)

Please call 07 3513 2591 to let us know of a suspected or confirmed case of COVID-19.

How do I talk to my child?

Your child may have questions about what coronavirus is, and what can be done to help keep their friends and family safe. Talking about the virus can help ease your child’s worries. Read this article and watch the video below where the children from C&K Carseldine Community Childcare share their ideas.
