Welcome

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. 

Great Start to Kindergarten Pre-kindy Program 2022 

C&K has been successful in securing funding from the Queensland Department of Education for the Great Start to Kindergarten Pre-kindy Program. This program 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 2022. 

To be eligible for the funding, children need to have turned three by 30 June 2022. 

Isis Community Pre School and Kindergarten is offering a Pre-kindy program for three-year-olds in terms 3 and 4, 2022. 

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 

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 2023. 

Please contact us for more information or to enrol and secure your child’s place. 

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.

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).
