Welcome to C&K Logan Reserve. 

C&K Logan Reserve Community Kindergarten was opened in 2012. We are located within the grounds of Logan Reserve State School and have established very close partnerships with the families, staff and children of the school. Our location enables us to have regular visits into the school grounds including the Prep rooms, the Library, the oval and the Nature Space which helps us to create a program that emphasises the importance of positive transitions to school.

We run an indoor-outdoor play based program, which makes the most of our beautiful building and natural spaces, provides the flexibility for all children to create, wonder, learn, problem solve and communicate in their own time and space.

In a growing area, our place in our community is growing too. Vacancies do fill up fast so please contact our centre to chat to one of our lovely team about enrolling your child.

Our Philosophy

We acknowledge the first people of Australia and the knowledge they share with us about the education of our young children. The active investigation of our world, using nature as our teacher and the sharing of knowledge as a community all come from Indigenous philosophy and are reflected in our daily practice.

We strongly believe play is the best way for children to learn and grow. Education should be an adventure, an exploration, an investigation of life and world around us, stemming from the ideas, interests and understandings that children bring with them. Educators find moments in each day to extend on and intentionally teach to the interest of the moment, based on each child’s needs and goals. There is a balance between child-led, child-initiated and educator supported learning.

Our environment provides open spaces and extended periods of time to nurture exploration and deeper levels of thinking. The openness of the environment allows for play directed by children. It challenges children’s creativity and imagination, opens up possibilities of exploration and extension, sends the message that we believe in each child’s competence and capability and fosters the development of relationships between children, teachers, families and community.

The health and safety of each child is of the upmost importance and is reflected in the practices and procedures of each day. We believe in educating children in listening to their bodies to assess their needs and risk in their environment so that they can take considered risks and ask for help where it is needed.

We strive to work as a team to support each other. We use open communication with each other with a shared understanding to be open to the ideas and beliefs of each member. We reflect as a team to challenge each other’s thinking and to celebrate moments of growth and greatness. We recognise that we need to be a strong team to support the children and families of our community.
Central to our philosophy and practise is our dedication to treating children as capable and competent; providing trust, increasing confidence, focusing on their needs and interests, making them feel safe, ensuring their voice is heard, and instilling in them a sense of value and importance. To ensure the rights of children are met and providing them with the knowledge of their rights as a person.

We recognise that parents and families are the most important part of a child’s life and their first educators. There is an open invitation for families and the community to contribute and be a part of the Kindergarten. We strive to create an environment where families feel welcome and valued as a member of the learning community. We are also proactive in reaching out to services and resources in our community to not only provide links for our families but also to establish our important place in the community around our Kindergarten.

We believe that each team member should be a leader in the centre and within the teaching team. We outline our goals for individual and team development and strive to support each other in those goals in conjunction with C&K management.

What year should my child attend kindy?

This table shows the year the Queensland government recommends your child attends kindergarten. Children aged 4 years old by June 30 in the year they attend kindy are also called ‘Eligible age’ or ‘Target age’.

Year born Kindy year
1 July 2018 to 30 June 2019 2023
1 July 2019 to 30 June 2020 2024
1 July 2020 to 30 June 2021 2025

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).

Am I eligible for the Kindy Plus or Family Tax Benefit subsidy?

Subsidies are funded by the Queensland and Australian governments.  All children of eligible age (turning at least 4 by June 30 in the year they attend kindy) are eligible for a subsidy of $1,500 per year.

Please visit the Kindy savings website and select sessional kindy for Step 1 to check your eligibility for the Kindy Plus and Family Tax Benefit subsidy.

You will need to show proof of your eligibility when you enrol, which will differ depending on the subsidy you are eligible for.

What if I want my 3 year old to go to kindergarten?

Priority is given to eligible-aged children but if there are places available, we are happy to have 3 year old children at kindy and attend for 2 years.  The subsidies do not apply for 3 year old children, and the non-eligible enrolment kindergarten fee will apply.  Please contact us on 07 3803 7025 for more information on fees for 3 year olds and to discuss your child and your family’s situation.

I have more questions.  Who can I talk to? 

As a not-for-profit, we aim to keep fees affordable for families and have developed a fee system to maximise family access to available subsidies.  Please visit our Kindergarten Fees Frequently Asked Questions page for more information.  You can also read more about C&K’s fee policy here
