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”.
Our kindy is a unique green space in the heart of Nundah and it has recently been updgraded and renovated!
As you walk through our gates you will instantly feel a sense of space and freedom. Our spacious garden shaded by beautiful trees allows children and their families an opportunity to sit, observe and reflect in comfort and peace surrounded by nature. We are proud of our natural environment as it offers a safe, stimulating place for all children to be, to extend, to grow, to challenge, to try, to succeed.
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.
Rebecca Sowden is our new Director/Teacher. 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.
