C&K Flagstone Kindergarten is co-located on the grounds of the Flagstone State School, in Flagstone's purpose built education precinct.
Flagstone is a master-planned community near Jimboomba, situated in the western corridor between Brisbane and the Gold Coast. Along with Springfield and Yarrabilba, Flagstone is one of three satellite cities in the area and is expecting massive growth in population and infrastructure over the next 30 years.
The kindergarten's Director, Senior Early Childhood Teacher (ECT) and Educational Leader, Sure Taylor, received the award for Excellence and Innovation in Pedagogy and Practice at the recent 2017 C&K Excellence & Innovation Awards at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre. Central to Sue's success in winning this award was the unwavering commitment of Sue and her team to realising the potential of all children, building community capacity and working alongside parents and community to develop resources as and when required. The teaching team at C&K Flagstone Kindergarten is highly regarded within the early childhood education community generally and within C&K as leaders in the field.
The Kindergarten program at C&K Flagstone is highly differentiated - based on the local Australian Early Development Census (AEDC) data collected every three years.
The team of educators at C&K Flagstone Kindergarten brings a genuine passion for working with children, families and the wider community as well as a keen and critically reflective way of working in the early childhood setting. Interactions and professional conversations are genuine and authentic and show great respect for the rights, voices and agency of all stakeholders. Children come first.
No two days are the same at C&K Flagstone. Our teaching team tailors each day’s learning, taking into account the interests of the children in the group. The spacious and natural environment at our kindy is thoughtfully planned and well resourced. There is a focus on music, drama, literature and visual arts and we allocate plenty of time for outdoor play and discovery.
Community spirit is important to us at C&K Flagstone. We foster 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 and taking the children on excursions out into the local community.
