C&K Flagstone Kindergarten is co-located on the grounds of the Flagstone State School, in Flagstone's purpose built education precinct.
The kindergarten's Director, Senior Early Childhood Teacher (ECT) and Educational Leader, Sue Taylor, received the award for Excellence and Innovation in Pedagogy and Practice at the 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.
Great Start to Kindergarten Pilot Program 2021
C&K has been successful in securing funding from the Queensland Department of Education for the Great Start to Kindergarten Pilot Program. This pilot provides funding for community kindergartens selected by the Department to offer no-cost or low-cost three-year-old programs in terms 3 and 4 in 2021.
C&K Flagstone Community Kindergarten is offering the no-cost Pre-kindy program and Playgroup for three-year-olds and pre-kindy program for three-year-olds in terms 3 and 4, 2021. Families can choose which program best suits their family and child.
Please contact the National Translating and Interpreting Service to support families with enrolments, inclusion, and medical needs forms. This service provides clarity to help remove language barriers that impact the child's needs.
Children will play and learn in a kindergarten environment specifically for three-year-olds, led by a qualified kindergarten teacher. Through indoor and outdoor play spaces, teachers will engage children with opportunities to explore, experiment, develop friendships, and express their creativity, while nurturing a lifelong love of learning!

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.
