Our warm, caring and degree-qualified early childhood educators are dedicated to ensuring your child enjoys and benefits from their kindergarten year. At Harty Street your child will be nurtured, protected and will grow into a lifelong learner. Our program is play-based preparing 3 - 5.5 year olds for their prep year and beyond. 


Our Kindergarten is a hidden gem! Tucked away on 2000sqm of land is a beautiful, natural, expansive playgroup where children can enjoy being children. This adventure playground is truly magical and plays a key role in our play-based curriculum allowing exploration, physical and social development. Our varied activities help children to develop emotionally, physically and academically.


Through vaired activities the children develop emotionally and physically. We achieve this by participating in activities and incursions both in and outdoors. These include

  • Outdoor play
  • Language
  • Music, movement & dance
  • History
  • Art experiences
  • Incursions

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 can 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. 

All C&K centres feature Listening and Learning Together: The C&K Curriculum Approach. The learning outcomes in our approach align with both The Early Years Learning Framework for Australia (EYLF), and the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guideline (QKLG).

Our approach 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, through written documentation in your centre.
