C&K Mossman Community Kindergarten is located in Foxton Avenue (just before Foxton Brdige). The kindergarten is located opposite the Mossman Pool and Caravan park, only a few minutes from the Mossman town centre.
Welcome to C&K Mossman Community Kindergarten, where your child will feel safe, make friends and belong. Our teachers and educators focus on nurturing your child's curiosity, building their resilience and developing their confidence - all through the joy of learning through play.
We have stimulating indoor and outdoor environments that offer a range of opportunities for children to learn through play. We offer a play-based program which helps to develop confident and competent learners and school readiness. We are situated in the heart of the rainforest with the creek and sugarcane literally on our doorstep. This location ensures that we are continually inspired by nature, which weaves naturally into our interests and learning program. Sustainability and caring for each other and our environment is something that flows through our community and is embedded in our teaching, learning, investigating and philosophy. We assist children to develop their independence and self-help skills, gross and fine motor skills, social and cognitive skills, and their understanding of the building blocks of literacy and numeracy.
No two days are the same at C&K Mossman. 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, science, nature, literature and sustainability. We allocate plenty of time for outdoor play, investigation and discovery.
Community spirit is important to us at C&K Mossman. We foster strong ties to the local community by encouraging parent involvement in the daily operations of the kindergarten. We partake in community events and love connecting with local businesses and groups around us.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Perspectives
Learning around Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures is embedded within our service, and we actively work toward reconciliation through understanding and appreciation of our nation’s First Peoples. Every family is invited to share their home culture with us as we continually strive to increase our own knowledge to share with the children.
