Welcome

C&K Everton Park was opened in 1962 and is located on a large, leafy block with a large kindergarten room, access to outdoor deck & veranda and a huge playground full of leafy trees, real grass, large sandpit, shady forest area and many gardens. The children can enjoy playing in this beautiful, natural environment while listening to the wonderful birds that live in our trees and observing many of the natural wonders of their surroundings.

As we have a maximum of 25 children, at any time the children have the benefit and freedom associated with having the entire kindergarten to themselves.

C&K Everton Park is very well resourced with ample paint and craft resources, creative play equipment, books, puzzles, music and outdoor play equipment. Children are able to direct the type of play by selecting their own music, directing games and expressing their imagination. Children are able to continue play over consecutive kindergarten days if they wish.

We have highly qualified and experienced teaching staff. Both kindergarten groups are taught by teachers who have over 30 years experience in early childhood.

At C&K Everton Park, each day is exciting and new. A day may involve working on projects and investigations, exploring, communicating, sharing, creating, imagining and much more.

Our centre has not only met the requirements of an approved kindergarten program, but we have received a status of "Exceeding National Quality Standards". This means our kindergarten program makes that extra effort to ensure we do better than just meet the minimum requirements and help your children reach new heights in their learning. 

To enrol at C&K Everton Park the following options exist:

  1. If your child is eligible for the current year of Kindy, please contact C&K Everton Park directly via phone or email. You may be able to enrol immediately if a place is available. If a place is not available, we will place your child on a waiting list or suggest alternatives.
  2. Complete an enrolment form at www.epk.asn.au or download a Waiting list application form. You will be added to a waitlist and contacted as soon as a position is available. Places are usually offered from May/June of the year before enrolment. Our waitlist is open from birth. A $10.00 waitlist fee will be required to place your name on the list.

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 can 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. 

All C&K centres feature Listening and Learning Together: The C&K Curriculum Approach. The learning outcomes in our approach align with both The Early Years Learning Framework for Australia (EYLF), and the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guideline (QKLG).

Our approach 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, through written documentation in your centre and through StoryPark (an app and website).
