Welcome 

Welcome to Deadly Kindy Gundoo Mirra.

We have a free bus drop off and pick up service to the local area.

Our playground is an important part of our curriculum. Your children will have the benefit of beautiful playground and natural setting which has been designed to enhance children's gross motor development. The children observe the lizards that wander into the yard. They learn about the bush tucker garden and participate in gardening experiences throughout the year. They use the seedpods from the trees to count and for craft.

The playground has quiet areas for resting and relaxing and active areas for ball games, climbing, sand play, obstacle courses, swings and much more.

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.

To be eligible for the funding, children need to have turned three by 30 June 2021.

Deadly Kindy Gundoo Mirra is offering no-cost Pre-kindy in a kindergarten program for three-year-olds in terms 3 and 4, 2021.

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, 2021 will provide children with opportunities to learn alongside older children and provide an individualised and developmentally appropriate approach.

Child-Led Learning 

No two days are the same at Deadly Kindy Gundoo Mirra. 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 

Community spirit is important to us at Deadly Kindy Gundoo Mirra. 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.

Don’t miss out on a place, enrol your child today. You can:

1. Enrol now - Please call us on 07 3034 1997. You may be able to enrol immediately if a place is available. If a place is not available, we will place your child on a waiting list.

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).
