Welcome

Welcome to our centre,

At C&K North Caloundra Community Child Care Centre, we provide exceptional care for babies through to Kindergarten children leaving for their journey into school life.

While at C&K we value, respect, collaborate, encourage and maintain a safe environment for your children to play and explore in. We have an open-door policy where family members are encouraged to spend time with their children learning and growing with them in their world. We celebrate your input and ideas into our centre, and encourage participation in music, art, and creative experiences. We deliver innovative programs that meet the diverse needs of our children, honour Australia's first people, and work towards reconciliation. Our educators are capable and engaged, ensuring the best possible outcomes are fostered for all children. 

C&K North Caloundra Child Care provides nappies for children whilst attending our service. We also offer morning tea and lunch for all our children. 

Please feel free to drop in any time and experience what our families already enjoy.

Regards,

Lynne Boulton
Director

Child-Led Learning 

No two days are the same at C&K North Caloundra Community Child Care. Each day's learning is driven by the interests of the children. The spacious and natural environment in our centre is thoughtfully planned and well resourced. There is a focus on music, drama, literature, and visual arts, in addition to time spent discovering the natural environment outdoors. 

Community Spirit 

Community spirit is important to us at C&K North Caloundra Community 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.

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 childcare centres 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.

Testimonials

The staff at C&K North Caloundra are what makes the difference for us. They are genuinely warm and caring and the team always goes out of their way to make sure our boys (who are from a non-traditional family unit) feel included and represented in all activities. The centre is well resourced and has a great outdoor play area which the kids love. The teachers are passionate and caring and I'm always in the loop with where my kids are at.  At the end of  the day you want to be sure your kids are in good hands and that they are happy and learning. I'm confident my boys are getting all of this - they always come home happy and full of great stories to share about their days at C&K North Caloundra.

My son has been a part of the C&K North Caloundra Community Childcare for over 2 years, and we love it!!!! 
The team here are friendly, caring, compassionate, and so very approachable. They go above and beyond, and in particular Kathryn and Ros, whom have been instrumental in helping my son with his eye condition and corrective patching. Not only does this centre deliver a creative and fun learning environment, it also focuses on diversity and culture bringing together a well rounded curriculum. My son loves the special event days where guests come to perform, teach and share their experiences with the children.
If you are looking for an environment where your child feels supported, nurtured, and has a whole heap of fun, then I would highly recommend C&K North Caloundra.
