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 educators. Teachers regularly attend professional development opportunities to stay current in their profession. 

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.

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).

2023 Kindergarten Fees   

C&K Everton Park Kindy is an Approved Kindergarten Program Provider, so our centre receives some funding via the Queensland Kindergarten Funding Scheme (QKF). Fees and fundraising cover the remaining costs.  

As a non-for-profit organisation, C&K Everton Park reinvests any surplus back into the kindergarten to achieve better outcomes for the children and community.

The daily fee for eligible age children (children turning 4 by June 30 of the year attending Kindy) is up to $42.60. Depending on your individual family’s circumstances you may be eligible for a subsidy under the Queensland Kindergarten Funding Program to reduce your out-of-pocket expense.     

Only one centre can claim the relevant funding subsidy for your child. If your child is enrolled in another kindergarten program (for example, in a childcare centre or another kindergarten) while they are enrolled at our centre, you need to choose which centre receives the funding.  

Fees are determined by the C&K Everton Park Kindergarten parent committee annually.   

Additional Fees and Levies  

A one-off, non-refundable fee when you confirm your enrolment of $165 is required  

** If your child attends in the enrolment year the enrolment fee will be allocated as follows - $50 enrolment fee; $15 membership fee; $100 maintenance roster bond which is refundable at the end of the kindergarten year if maintenance roster requirements fulfilled.**
