Welcome to C&K Gaven Community Kindergarten.
Our program is designed to meet each child’s unique interests, needs, development and strengths. Children are assisted to develop their independence and self help skills, gross and fine motor skills, social and cognitive skills and their understanding of the building blocks of literacy and numeracy. This is achieved through a program that builds on individual children’s interests and strengths and that incorporates children’s own ideas and plans. Our aim is for each child to fulfil their potential and to be happy, caring and resilient.
One of the benefits of being co-located at Gaven State School is that we have access to participate in some school based experiences. We currently have weekly visits to the library, we use the oval for games and sports experiences, and visit the prep classes.
We are a community kindergarten and encourage the participation of families in this living and learning environment.
Why not pop in for a visit. We would love to show you around!
No two days are the same at C&K Gaven. 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 Gaven. 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.
