Welcome to C&K Leichhardt Community Kindergarten, we are nestled in well established gardens, helping us develop a caring and respectful attitude with children towards nature. The staff at the service have more than 40 years' experience educating children. Leichhardt Kindergarten is a stand alone community kindergarten and we have lots of parking. Our Director, Lee McCarthy and fellow educator Carissa Huff would love to talk to you about our wonderful centre and how early learning can benefit your child. Please contact us to make an appointment to tour the centre.
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 Leichhardt 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 and Friday, 8:30 am to 2:30 pm

No two days are the same at C&K Leichhardt. 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.
Community spirit is important to us at C&K Leichhardt. We foster strong ties to the local community by encouraging parent involvement in the daily operations of the kindergarten. We often hold and partake in community events and love connecting with local businesses and groups around us and taking the children on excursions out into the local community.
