Welcome to C&K Highland Reserve Community Kindergarten.
Our program is designed to meet each child’s unique interests, needs, development and strengths. Throughout the year children guided towards school readiness as their independence, self-help skills, gross and fine motor skills, social and cognitive skills, and their understanding of the building blocks of literacy and numeracy are nurtured through play. 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 Highland Reserve State School is that we have access to participate in some school based experiences. We currently have visits to the library, we utilise the oval for games and sports experiences, visit the prep classes and are included in some music, P.E lessons and special assemblies.
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.
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.
C&K Highland Reserve Community Kindergarten is offering no-cost Pre-kindy 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.
Children will play and learn in a kindergarten environment specifically for three-year-olds, led by a qualified kindergarten teacher. Through indoor and outdoor play spaces, teachers will engage children with opportunities to explore, experiment, develop friendships, and express their creativity, while nurturing a lifelong love of learning!
After attending the pre-kindy program, children will be supported to transition into the four-year-old kindergarten program in 2022.
Pre-kindy operating hours:
- Thursday 9:00 am to 2:30 pm
- Friday 9:00 am to 2:30 pm
Queensland Government Approved Program
We offer a unique kindergarten program based on our own internationally-recognised teaching guidelines - ‘Building waterfalls’. Our government-approved program is centred around a living and learning community that values children as competent and capable individuals. This play-based curriculum helps children to socialise, build confidence, and develop communication and early literacy and numeracy skills to ensure your child is school-ready.
No two days are the same at C&K Highland Reserve. 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 Highland Reserve. 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.
