Queensland Government Approved Program
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, develop communication and early literacy and numeracy skills to ensure your child is school ready. We offer a kindergarten program within a Limited Hours Care Service meaning that we are able to offer extended hours of care for your child. This kindergarten program is led by a Bachelor Qualified Early Childhood Teacher. The other benefit of our program is that we are able to offer a mixed aged group so younger siblings can attend altogether and learn from the older children.
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.
Sunbird Children's Centre, Julatten is offering no-cost Pre-kindy in a kindergarten 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.
Pre-kindy in a kindergarten program
Three-year-old children will attend the existing high-quality community kindergarten program alongside four-year-olds, which will complement and extend children's learning at home. It also provides learning opportunities that are not always readily available in a home context – including building relationships with teachers and learning to cooperate with peers in a group environment.
Attending this program in terms 3 and 4, 2021 will provide children with opportunities to learn alongside older children and provide an individualised and developmentally appropriate approach.
