A warm welcome to C&K Holloways Beach Community Kindergarten, part of the C&K tradition that spans 100 years of practical experience, curriculum development and proven positive outcomes for children.
C&K Holloways Beach Community Kindergarten has been running a quality education program for over 40 years. Many changes have occurred over the years but we have parents who attended Holloways Beach themselves, who are now bringing their own children.
Our service offers a Queensland Government approved Kindergarten program provided by a qualified early childhood educator is registered with the Queensland College of Teachers.
Each of our kindergarten groups has a maximum of 22 children facilitated by two educators who implement an emergent play-based program. We assist children 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 fulfill their potential and to be happy, caring and resilient children who are full of curiosity and wonder why to begin their learning journey through school.
Our philosophy is centred around our belief that it takes a village to raise a child. The families, staff, children and the wider community develop a warm rewarding relationship with one goal in mind to help our children grow and develop in a fun play based environment which embraces nature. Central to our programming is to develop the sense of ‘wonder why?’ in children in preparation for their next journey in life through the fields of education.
We are truly blessed with a wonderful outdoor environment that photographs do not do justice too. Please come have a look and experience the magic that can be found at C & K Holloways Beach Community Kindergarten.
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 Holloways Beach. 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 Holloways Beach. 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.
