Welcome to C&K Parkhurst

At C&K Parkhurst Childcare Centre, we welcome children from 6 weeks of age to 5 years old and provide care and early learning five days a week from 6:30am to 6:00pm.

As a home away from home, our environment provides feelings of being safe, secure and supported while in the care of our qualified educators. At C&K we support our team to nurture play-based learning, develop caring relationships with children and our families, and foster a life-long love of learning with every child in our care.

Our service has a combination of both age-based rooms and communal learning spaces where siblings and children of all ages can come together to learn and play.  The large outdoor area is designed to take advantage of the natural environment and encourages children to explore, discover, play, and engage in nature.

C&K childcare centres offer quality education and care programs where we focus on a unique infant and toddler approach, as well as delivering the approved kindergarten program for four year olds. Best of all, we provide flexible options where you can choose the hours of care to suit your family.

C&K Parkhurst is located on Yaamba Road with access off 4 Mason Avenue. The centre is a 2 minute walk from Parkhurst State School which is also located on Mason Avenue.

Infant and toddler approach

At C&K we are exploring new approaches for the educators that care for and educate our littlest people at C&K childcare centres. The Infant and Toddler approach, which we have developed, is all about being in the moment with your child. Our philosophy for this age group is to “slow down” and be in the moment with your child to allow them the opportunity to learn and discover at their own pace. We are focused on spending one-on-one time with babies and toddlers and developing deep and trusting relationships with each individual child.

Kindergarten program in childcare

Each of C&K’s childcare centres delivers an approved kindergarten program for eligible aged children within the childcare program. Kindergarten, also known as preschool or pre-prep, is a structured, play-based program led by a university qualified teacher for children in the year before they attend prep at school.  The program, which runs for at least 15 hours per week, 40 weeks per calendar year, focuses on helping children to develop a wide range of essential skills and prepares them for their transition to school.

Flexible booking options

At C&K we appreciate that each family is different with individual needs.  We offer flexible booking options, designed to help you maximise your Child Care Subsidy and access to early childhood education and care while minimising out-of-pocket costs.  We have three options available, a full day, 9-hour session or 10-hour session.  Our 9 and 10 hour sessions work in with your schedule and start once your child is signed in, they do not have set start and finish times.

Child-led learning 

At C&K each day’s learning is driven by the interests and ideas of the children. The spacious and natural environments within our centre are thoughtfully planned and well resourced, with opportunities to meet the needs and interests of all children who attend. This is achieved through the provision of combined indoor and outdoor play opportunities throughout the day. Play offers children many opportunities to develop friendships, explore, solve problems, help others, imagine, create, and extend on their interests.

Community spirit

Community spirit is important to us at C&K. We foster strong ties to the local community and encourage parent involvement in the daily operations of the centre. We often hold and partake in community events and love connecting with local businesses and groups around us.

Enrolment enquiry

C&K has developed a Infant and Toddler Approach which informs the way we care for and educate our babies and toddlers. Our philosophy for this age is to “slow down” and be in the moment with your child as they learn and explore the world. We focus on developing a deep and trusting relationship with each child.

All C&K childcare centres deliver C&K's Quality Kindergarten Program. Kindergarten, also known as pre-prep or preschool, is a program for children who are turning 4 by June 30 in the year before they attend school. C&K’s kindy programs are government-approved and led by experienced and university qualified teachers. Our program supports children’s curiosity, creativity, problem solving, resilience and real-world knowledge and skills.

At C&K we know that children do not learn in isolation, learning is a collaborative process between teachers, educators, children and families. At C&K we believe children are powerful learners, active citizens, thinkers and theorisers - this is at the heart of our early childhood curriculum. We've designed our indoor and outdoor spaces to ignite imaginations and nurture healthy minds and bodies. 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 and care journey is shared with you via  conversations with your child’s educators, through written documentation and through StoryPark (an app and website).
