Welcome to C&K Maranoa Community Kindergarten.
Our mission is to create a safe and nurturing, play based environment in which we offer a high quality educational program that reflects current research and best practice for pre-prep aged children.
We do this in conjunction with our community, children, parents, guardians and staff.
We understand the importance of managing, maintaining and developing this community resource for future families.
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 Maranoa 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, 9:00 am to 2:30 pm
No two days are the same at C&K Maranoa. 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 Maranoa. 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.
