C&K Forestview Community Kindergarten Association Inc
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).

Congratulations Forestview Educators!
Woo hoo! In 2017, Forestview Community Kindergarten was honoured to have been part of the group of centres that scooped up a major art award at the C&K annual conference in Brisbane. The award category recognises the work of an educator, or group of educators who have consistently demonstrated high standards of excellence in relation to the arts in the early childhood sector.
Congratulations to all of the educators, children (over 300 of them!) and the Bundaberg Region Art Gallery for your efforts with this amazing arts project.
Forestview Kindergarten was honoured to have been part of the wonderful collaborative art project in 2017 called Our Town which was exhibited in the School of Arts as part of the 2017 Crush Festival.
C&K children’s services manager Sandi Lascelles said it was an extraordinary collaboration.
“We worked closely with Rebecca Maclean from the Bundaberg Regional Gallery on a project that gave this large group of children a great chance to think about their city and what’s important to them,” she said.
