When you enter C&K Nundah the first thing you will notice is the vast space we have…

It is open…

It is welcoming…

It is natural…

We pride ourselves on our connection to the natural environment, our relationships with families and the community, the inclusion of and celebrations of all cultures and our reputation of being a place “Where Everyone Belongs”.

We acknowledge and pay respect to the traditional custodians of the land on which we play. The Turrbul people to the north of the river and the Jagera people to the south of the river. The name “Nundah” means “chain of water holes” in the local Aboriginal dialect.

Rosslyn is our Director/Teacher and has been teaching at C&K Nundah since 1989. Peta is our Assistant and has been associated with C&K Nundah in various roles since 2009.

Team Vision Statement

We value each and every child who crosses our path or travels with us for a while as a unique individual – one who comes to us with many talents and endless possibilities. Working together with parents we listen to, nurture and respect each child to maximise children’s life outcomes and guide their learning journey.

Philosophy of Education and Curriculum

We acknowledge that each child brings with them a rich history and culture which is shaped by their family upbringing and community attachments. A child’s engagement and response to their environment and their relationship with their “community of learners” provides the foundation of future learning.

Our approach is play based – every child has the right to play, to build on their existing learning from home, to extend on their interests and to share their ideas with others. Our program focuses on individual learning outcomes and interests. Consideration is given to the potential of teaching within any given moment through meaningful interactions, continuous observations, reflection, planning and assessment.

We look forward to welcoming each and every family who would like to visit our service.

Don’t miss out on a place, enrol your child today. You can:

1. Enrol now - Please call or email us. You may be able to enrol immediately if a place is available. If a place is not available, we will place your child on a waiting list.

2. Enrol later  Please click the “Enrol online” button above and fill out the form. You will be added to a queue and contacted as soon as a suitable place is available. Places are usually offered for the following year, between May and July the year before.

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 can 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. 

All C&K centres feature Listening and Learning Together: The C&K Curriculum Approach. The learning outcomes in our approach align with both The Early Years Learning Framework for Australia (EYLF), and the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guideline (QKLG).

Our approach 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, through written documentation in your centre and through StoryPark (an app and website).

How does C&K decide fees?

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

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