Welcome to C&K Oakey Community Kindergarten.
The first five years of a child’s life are vital in helping form who they will be as adults. C&K knows and understands this very well having played a part in the lives of more than a million children over the past century in Queensland.
We are a high quality provider of early education and care and we are thrilled that you are considering C&K for your child.
The centre is a small rural setting where children are extended to meet their unique learning needs.
In addition the children assist in the maintenance of our herb, vegetable and flower gardens.
Each day food scraps are collected and fed to our centre chooks. Recycling is also a feature of our activities with families collecting items found in nature as well as cardboard rolls, material scraps, egg cartons etcetera for use in a creative area.
There is an emphasis on natural materials at the centre. Wooden furniture, fabrics of cotton, wool and silk. This natural, simple theme will be reinforced in the choice of play equipment for the children: wooden planks, play stands and crates .
Baskets are full of items from nature such as pine cones, conkers, stones, shells and logs are here to furnish games with food, money and any other small parts that may be needed.
Queensland Government Approved Program
We offer a unique kindergarten program based on our own internationally-recognised teaching guidelines - ‘Building waterfalls’. Our government approved program is centred around a living and learning community that values children as competent and capable individuals. This play-based curriculum helps children to socialise, build confidence, develop communication and early literacy and numeracy skills to ensure your child is school ready.
No two days are the same at C&K Oakey Community Kindergarten 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 Oakey Community Kindergarten. 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.
