Family Handbook | C&K - childcare and kindergarten

Family Handbook

C&K has been educating and caring for children across Queensland for more than 110 years and we’re proud of our reputation as leaders in early childhood education.

We’re happy you have chosen us for your child’s early learning, so they can enjoy the C&K experience, like a million children before them. In the first five years, children learn more quickly than at any other stage of their life and we look forward to guiding your child on this learning journey.

We know in these early years that seeds are planted for a lifetime. At the heart of the C&K philosophy is encouraging children to be curious and to love learning. Our highly qualified educators will do this through Listening and Learning Together: C&K Curriculum Approach – which is unique to C&K.

This Family Handbook will give you an insight into the kinds of experiences your child will have at C&K and what to expect in the year ahead. Of course, your Director remains a first port of call for any questions you may have along the way.

We welcome your family to the C&K community and look forward to working with you in this exciting and important stage of your child’s learning journey.
