At C&K Elanora Community Kindergarten, we endeavour to create a warm and welcoming environment for children and families.
Our Building Waterfalls Curriculum provides a framework for responsive and collaborative relationships with children, families and the wider community. Our living and learning program builds upon the emerging interests, strengths and needs of the children. Educators support, guide and extend the children through a play based approach to learning. We seek opportunities to embed literacy and numeracy concepts within the children's play on a daily basis. We have an emphasis on nature and outdoor learning, as well as a rich creative arts program and well resourced and beautiful learning environment.
We offer an Approved Kindergarten Program provided by two Early Childhood educators. We have a qualified Early Childhood Teacher who is registered with the Queensland College of Teachers and an Assistant who holds a Diploma of Children's Services.
We are co-located on the grounds of the Elanora State School. We enjoy a close collaborative relationship with the school, participating in many school community events and offering a Transition to Prep program in term 4.
C&K Elanora Community Kindergarten acknowledges and pays its respects to the traditional custodians of the land on which our service is placed, and our continuing connection to land, sea and community. We also acknowledge and pay respects to our Elders - past and present.
Queensland Government Approved Program
We offer a unique kindergarten program based on our own internationally-recognised teaching guidelines - ‘Building waterfalls’. Our government approved program is centred around a living and learning community that values children as competent and capable individuals. This play-based curriculum helps children to socialise, build confidence, develop communication and early literacy and numeracy skills to ensure your child is school ready.
No two days are the same at C&K Elanora. 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 Elanora. 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.
