Welcome

Welcome to C&K Mount Gravatt West Community Childcare Centre.

The first five years of a child’s life are vital in helping form who they will be as adults. C&K knows and understands this very well having played a part in the lives of more than a million children over the past century in Queensland.

We are a high quality provider of early education and care and we are thrilled that you are considering C&K for your child.

Yours sincerely

Michael Tizard

This play-based curriculum helps children to socialise, build confidence, develop communication and early literacy and numeracy skills to ensure your child is school ready.

No two days are the same at C&K Mount Gravatt West. Our teaching team tailor each day’s learning taking into account the interests of the children in the group.  The spacious environment at our kindy is thoughtfully planned and well resourced. There is a focus on music, drama, literature and visual arts and time spent discovering the natural environment outdoors.
