Welcome

Welcome to C&K Newmarket Community Childcare.

Our service is a community-based, not for profit centre, providing quality education and care for young children. We are a 57 place centre catering for children aged 0-5 years. We implement our own C&K developed curriculum, ‘Building Waterfalls’. The curriculum features:

  • Play-based learning that is childcentred and initiated
  • Individual and group negotiated experiences
  • Open ended environment and resources
  • Children are respected as competent and capable citizens
  • Partnerships between children/families/staff are valued
  • Recognition of children as lifelong learners

Queensland Government Approved Program  

Welcome to C&K Newmarket Child Care. We offer a unique kindergarten program based on our own internationally-recognised teaching guidelines - ‘Building waterfalls’. Our government approved program is centred around a living and learning community that values children as competent and capable individuals. 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.

Child-Led Learning 

No two days are the same at C&K Newmarket Child Care. 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.

Community Spirit 

Community spirit is important to us at C&K Newmarket Child Care. We foster our 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. 

Usually C&K offers places at our childcares on a first come, first served basis.

Enrol later - please click "Enrol online" button above to add your child's name to our list.  You will be redirected to an external website, where you will need to create a login and password and complete an online form. You won't be charged a fee. We will contact you when a space becomes available, by the date you added your child to our list and whether your child has been identified as a priority by the Australian government.

C&K has developed a Birth to Three approach which informs the way we care for and educate our babies and toddlers. Our philosophy for this age is to “slow down” and be in the moment with your child as they learn and explore the world. We focus on developing a deep and trusting relationship with each child.

All C&K childcares feature the quality C&K kindergarten program. Kindergarten, also known as pre-prep or preschool, is a program for children who are turning 4 by June 30 in the year before they attend school. C&K’s kindy programs are guided by University qualified teachers and support children’s curiosity, creativity, problem solving, resilience and real-world knowledge and skills.

At C&K we know that children do not learn in isolation, learning is a collaborative process between teachers, children and parents. The physical indoor and outdoor environment also plays a part. At C&K we believe children are competent and capable learners, and approach our education program with this in mind.
