Kindergarten with Extended Hours

 

To provide more flexibility for families, some C&K kindergartens provide an extended kindy program (from 2pm to 6pm or later) and holiday kindy.

Our education program

Kindergarten, also known as pre-prep or preschool, is a program for 3-5 year old children the year before they attend school.  C&K’s kindergarten programs are guided by university-qualified teachers and support children’s curiosity, creativity, and resilience. 

At C&K we know that children do not learn in isolation, so we approach learning as a collaborative relationship between teachers, children and parents.

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.

How the core kindergarten and extended kindergarten program works

Our core kindergarten program is led by a university-qualified, Early Childhood Teacher, supported by assistant educators.

There will be a half-hour overlap between the core kindergarten program lead and the extended program lead educator each day. Educators will share highlights and continuing plans for the day.

The extended program continues children’s learning into the afternoon and is led by a diploma-qualified educator and supported by an assistant educator. The extended program team will also have access to an Early Childhood Teacher. 

Fees are subsidised for some of our kindergartens with extended hours via the kindergarten funding program and the child care subisdy.  These are listed as "hybrid" centres.  And our other centres have fees that are entirely subsidised by the child care subsidy (listed below as "full CCS").

You can learn more about our kindergarten with extended hours and their program days and hours, enrolment process and fees by visiting the centre web page listed below.
