Great Start to Kindergarten Pre-kindy Program 2022
C&K has been successful in securing funding from the Queensland Department of Education for the Great Start to Kindergarten Pre-kindy Program. This program 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 2022.
To be eligible for the funding, children need to have turned three by 30 June 2022.
Glebe Road Community Kindergarten and Pre-school is offering a Pre-kindy in a kindergarten program for three-year-olds in terms 3 and 4, 2022.
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.
Pre-kindy in a kindergarten program
Three-year-old children will attend the existing high-quality community kindergarten program alongside four-year-olds, which will complement and extend children's learning at home. It also provides learning opportunities that are not always readily available in a home context – including building relationships with teachers and learning to cooperate with peers in a group environment.
Attending this program in terms 3 and 4, 2022 will provide children with opportunities to learn alongside older children and provide an individualised and developmentally appropriate approach.
Please contact us for more information or to enrol and secure your child’s place.
This single unit centre is affiliated with C&K and is administered as an incorporated association by the committee of current parents. The centre is primarily funded by the State Government through Education Queensland. Fees and fundraising make up the balance. We operate as a non-profit organisation meeting all government regulations.
Our opening hours are between Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, Friday from 8:00am to 3:36pm.
Our teaching staff are highly qualified and experienced in all areas of early childhood education and possess tertiary teaching qualifications. Teachers are registered with the board of Teacher Registration and have specialised Early Childhood qualifications. Our assistants have completed a minimum Certificate III in Childcare qualifications. All our staff members hold current blue Suitability Card (or exemption cards) and First Aid Certificates including CPR, Asthma & Anaphylaxis. Our directors are also Mental Health First Aiders.
We have created a rich aesthetically pleasing indoor and outdoor environment that offers a wide range of equipment, resources and experiences for your child. At Glebe Road, children and families are respected, valued and treated with honesty, integrity and compassion. Our centre's warm, caring environment ensures that all children and families feel welcome & comfortable.
Our children's parents and extended families are encouraged to participate in the day to day program. This promotes close knit home/school cooperation and helps the child move easily into our environment - which is an extension of the learning that takes place at home. We look forward to getting to know you and working together to provide the best education for your child.
