C&K Narnia Community Kindergarten

Welcome

It is part of Narnia’s philosophy to develop within each child a love of learning and a high level of self worth, while joining with parents as partners in their child’s early education. At Narnia we use the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guidelines and C&K curriculum Approach. Both of these supporting curriculums provide a powerful and symbolic provocation for our thinking and a reminder of the capabilities of children – their strength, optimism, spontaneity and possibility. 

 

Educational Goals of Kindergarten:

The long term goals of the planned and incidental curriculum at Narnia are to:

  • Provide a caring and encouraging environment which nurtures a sense of self worth;
  • Create a supportive, educational program, where children are intrinsically motivated through active exploration and play. It is through play experiences that children learn best;
  • Provide an environment where children develop an enquiry approach to learning. Children are encouraged to problem solve and seek answers to their questions;
  • Provide a physical environment which is safe, attractive and conducive to learning;
  • Develop each child’s language and social skills to include an empathy and respect for others;
  • Build foundations for lifelong learning;
  • Provide a program that caters to each child’s interests, needs and abilities;
  • Support parents in their role as parents and teachers;
  • Develop an appreciation of the natural environment which will assist the children in relaxing and feeling at ease;
  • Continually review the children’s progress and to reflect upon curriculum content and applicability.

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).
