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
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 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.

Birth to Three Approach
At C&K we are exploring new approaches for the educators that care for and educate our littlest people at C&K childcare centres. The Birth to Three approach, which we have developed, is all about being in the moment with your child. Our philosophy for this age group is to “slow down” and to slow down some more to allow children the time to learn and discover at their own pace. We are focused on spending one-on-one time with babies and toddlers and developing deep and trusting relationships with each individual child.
