Isis Community Pre-School & Kindergarten Association Inc

Opening Hours

Mondays, Tuesdays, alternating Wednesdays.
8:45am - 2:45pm


Located in the rural township of Childers, in 2020 our centre celebrated 60 years of educating and caring for children of the district. We pride ourselves on our warm, welcoming and spacious outdoor and indoor environment. Some of the children attending Isis Community Preschool & Kindergarten are the third generation to do so and in 2020 we will have a child who is the 4th generation of the one of the families who founded our kindergarten. Our staff live in the local community and enjoy getting to know all the children and their families so that we establish strong relationships with everyone. 'Fun, Friendship and Learning Through Play' is our motto and that is what we love doing every day. 

We may have vacancies!

We run a 5 day fortnight program with children attending either every Monday/Tuesday and every second Wednesday or every Thursday/Friday and every second Wednesday.

Our hours are 8:45am - 2:45pm.

All our kindergartens deliver C&K Quality Kindergarten Program. Kindergarten, also known as pre-prep or preschool, is a program for children who are turning 4 by June 30 in the year before they attend school. C&K’s kindy programs are government-approved and led by experienced and university qualified teachers. Our program supports children’s curiosity, creativity, problem solving, resilience and real-world knowledge and skills.

At C&K we know that children do not learn in isolation, so we approach learning as a collaborative relationship between teachers, eaducators, children and families. At C&K we believe children are powerful learners, active citizens, thinkers and theorisers - this is at the heart of our early childhood curriculum. We've designed our indoor and outdoor spaces to ignite imaginations and nurture healthy minds and bodies. 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).

Isis Kindergarten turned 60 in 2020.
We usually have a Settling in Session in late January for all new enrolments to have a 'practice run' of our morning routine.

Kindergarten Fees

The Queensland Government provides funding to make kindy free for families with eligible-age children (children turning 4 years old by 30 June in the year they attend kindy). The funding is provided directly to your centre, and if eligible, you will not pay any daily fee.

Free kindy is only available for one kindergarten group, so you may have to pay fees if your child is enrolled in two groups. For example:

  • If your child is enrolled in both kindergarten groups at one kindy.
  • If your child is enrolled in two different kindergartens. You must nominate which kindergarten will receive the funding when you enrol.
  • If your child is enrolled in a kindergarten and a childcare centre, you will only receive free kindy at the kindy and not at the childcare centre.


Daily Fee

Daily fee (eligible-age children) FREE
Daily fee (non-eligible)* - 5 days a fortnight program TBC
Daily fee (non-eligible)* - 2 days a week program TBC

Other Fees

You may also have to pay an enrolment fee and membership fee. These will be one-off fees and paid before your child starts kindergarten.



Enrolment fee TBC
Membership fee TBC

What if I want my 3 year old to go to kindergarten?*

Priority is given to eligible-age children but if there are places available, we are happy to have 3 year old children at kindy and attend for two years.  The subsidies do not apply for 3 year old children, and the daily fee (non-eligible) will apply. Please contact us on 07 4126 1241 for more information on fees for 3 year olds and to discuss your child and your family’s situation.

I have more questions. Who can I talk to? 

You can find more information on our Kindergarten Fees page or you can download our Fact Sheet.
