C&K Cotton Tree Child Care Centre has been a fixture in the community for 40 years and originally opened its doors in May 1976.
Our centre as been rated as exceeding in all 7 quality areas of the National Quality Standards. It is a purpose built Child Care Centre with 5 rooms. We have a dining room, a great space where the children sit, talk and eat with the educators. The room is also used for celebrations, workshops and special events.
The Centre is situated in the very pleasant community of Cotton Tree. We are nestled between the local Library, tennis court and lawn bowl clubs, diagonal to the centre are the Neighbourhood Centre and the Cotton Tree Community Gardens. The beach and Cotton Tree Surf Club are a pleasant walk down the road, as are the local shops. The local community are supportive with our fundraising ventures and the Centre in return supports the local businesses and purchase goods locally.
There are four specific allocated parking bays directly in front of the Centre. There is additional centre isle parking and parking to the side of the building (which is shared with patrons of the library, tennis and lawn bowl clubs).
Our charity - Support Our Farmers, can be supported by donations of non-perishable foods and toiletries for a hamper. If you would like to donate, please add to the basket in the foyer and Care Outreach will collect.
We look forward to welcoming you to C&K Cotton Tree Community Childcare Centre.
Note: C&K Cotton Tree Child Care now be provides nappies to children in our Nurseries.
Read our Philosophy.
Birth to Three Approach
At C&K we are exploring new approaches for the educators that care for, and educate our youngest children at C&K childcare centres. The Birth to Three 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 allow children the time 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.
