Welcome

Welcome to C&K Oxenford 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.

Child-Led Learning 

No two days are the same at C&K Oxenford 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 

Community spirit is important to us at C&K Oxenford 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.

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 may be able to 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. 

Our curriculum approach, Listening and Learning Together, aligns with both The Early Years Learning Framework for Australia (EYLF), and the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guideline (QKLG).

It 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 and through written documentation in your centre, and in some centres through StoryPark (an app and website).

Our COVID recovery grant

At Oxenford Community kindy, we are very excited to have received a COVID-19 Community Organisation Recovery Grant from City of Gold Coast - funding that is helping us to recover from the impact of COVID-19 at our centre.

With the $4581.81 we received, we purchased 3 iPads and 2 laptops which were much-needed resources for our centre. We use this technology for a variety of purposes such as researching with the children, communicating, and documenting the children's learning journeys.

The resources are helping our children to reach their learning goals and prepare them for their future school years. The technology is also valuable to our educators who have used the iPads and laptops for online learning and to connect remotely with parents, children, and staff

We are very grateful to City of Gold Coast for this wonderful grant that is making a big difference to our kindy lives.
