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.

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.

What subsidies are available?

The Australian Government helps families with the cost of childcare. For more information, please visit Services Australia.

How can flexible bookings help?

C&K offers flexible booking options, designed to help you maximise your Child Care Subsidy and access to early childhood education and care while minimising family's out-of-pocket costs. Our 9 and 10 hour sessions work in with your schedule and start once your child is signed in, not a set start and finish time. 

I have more questions, who can I talk to?

If you have any other questions or concerns, please contact us on 07 5491 6288.

How does C&K decide fees?

As a not-for-profit organisation, C&K reinvests any surplus back into our centres and programs to better achieve outcomes for all children and communities. 

We aim to keep fees affordable for families and have developed a fee system to maximise family access to available subsidies. Read more about C&K's fee policies.
