C&K Lutwyche Windsor Kindergarten & Preschool

Welcome

Welcome to the Lutwyche Windsor Kindergarten & Preschool.

We are a single unit centre with 44 enrolments. We are a well established centre, having offered kindergarten programs to children for over 70 years. Our extensive grounds are well maintained and the whole centre has recently undergone major renovations.

Group 1: each Monday & Tuesday, 8:30am - 4:00pm
Group 2: each Wednesday, Thursday & Friday, 8:30am - 2:30pm

We strive to....

  • provide a program which is based on play and gives children the opportunity to make choices
  • treat each child as an individual and foster development of their needs and interests
  • provide an environment that is warm, secure and supportive and that encourages development of self-esteem and self-confidence
  • foster a team approach where all children, parents and staff are respected & valued and encourage cooperation, kindness and acceptance
  • promote development of the whole child physically, socially, emotionally and cognitively
  • ensure we keep alive a child's nature, desire to learn and curiosity about the world
  • promote development of a child'd independence and self-help skills

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 can 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. 

All C&K centres feature Listening and Learning Together: The C&K Curriculum Approach. The learning outcomes in our approach align with both The Early Years Learning Framework for Australia (EYLF), and the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guideline (QKLG).

Our approach 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, through written documentation in your centre and through StoryPark (an app and website).
