C&K Edmonton Community Kindergarten

Welcome

Welcome to Edmonton Community Kindergarten.
 
We have been offering quality education and care for pre-prep children over the last 25 years and place great emphasis on creating a warm and caring atmosphere of respect and dignity for children and families. We want your child’s experience to be a positive and fulfilling one.  
 
We know children are competent and capable learners, who can make their own choices, problem solve and explore. Our role is to support this strengths-based approach to achieve the best outcomes for each child.  
 
For our families, we work together in partnerships to support and communicate with one another. We value the knowledge and expertise parents have of their child and wide diversity of experiences parents can contribute to the learning program.
 
For our community, connections with and respect for the natural world and all its peoples are essential for children being and becoming active contributors to their communities.
 
Our Mission Statement is to provide a safe, welcoming, educational environment that reflects the interests, needs and abilities of the children and responds to the needs of the families in the community.

How to Apply  

In order to apply for a kindergarten position, parents are encouraged to visit the Kindergarten to collect an application form for 2021 onwards, and submit this with a non-refundable and non-transferable $50 enrolment fee. This fee secures your child’s position for the year they are eligible for kindergarten. If parents choose not to pay the $50 enrolment fee, a child’s name will only be on the data base for that applicable year.   

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 may be able to 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. 

Our curriculum approach, Listening and Learning Together, aligns with both The Early Years Learning Framework for Australia (EYLF), and the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guideline (QKLG).

It 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 and through written documentation in your centre, and in some centres through StoryPark (an app and website).
