Palmwoods Kindergarten Association | C&K - childcare and kindergarten

Palmwoods Kindergarten Association

Palmwoods Community Kindergarten and Preschool is affiliated with the Creche & Kindergarten Association which was established in 1907. The service is staffed by professionally qualified early childhood educators including our directors Lise Dunn B.T. Early Childhood and Roseann Gresinger Bachelor of Education Early Childhood and Bachelor of Music.

The centre's play-based curriculum incorporates a wide variety of learning experiences catering to the individual needs and learning styles of each child. Children are encouraged to engage in a multitude of learning experiences which promote the growth of children through cognitive (literacy, numeracy, discovery and problem solving) affective (social and emotional) and physical (gross and fine motor skills and co-ordination) realms of learning.

At Palmwoods Kindergarten & Preschool we recognise the rights of each child and encourage students to make rational choices and to identify the responsibilities which accompany these choices.

The centre classifies parents as partners in the educational process and therefore welcome and encourage parent participation.

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).
