Welcome to C&K Kelso Community Kindergarten.
We offer quality education and care for children aged in the year before they attend Prep. We are a dedicated kindergarten so your child will take part in a structured program with other children their age.
We are located in a quiet street at 5 Gower Street, Kelso. The Kindergarten is situated on the Kelso State School site.
Our Service has stimulating indoor and outdoor environments that offer a range of opportunities for children to learn through play.
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 Kelso 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, Friday and alternate Wednesdays, 8:30 am to 1:30 pm

No two days are the same at C&K Kelso. 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.
