Welcome to C&K Park Lake Community Kindergarten.
C&K Park Lake is co-located on the grounds of Park Lake State School. We are a single unit kindergarten of 22 children. Children are eligible to attend the year before they are due to start Prep, which is around the ages of 3.5 to 4.5.
Our programs are based on children's strengths and interests and are flexible to cater for events and the changing interests of children. For kindergarten-aged children C&K centres use Listening and Learning Together: The C&K Curriculum Approach. The learning outcomes in our approach align with both The Early Years Learning Framework for Australia (EYLF ), and the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guideline (QKLG ). Our approach continues the longstanding traditions and philosophical commitments of C&K to our children, families and communities.
Throughout the year children are prepared for a transition to school their fine and gross motor skills, independence and self-help skills and social and emotional development are nutured through play and play-based learning.
Our kindergarten takes part in events at Park Lake State School throughout the year, and we are often invited to share in experiences such as Book Week, sports carnivals and special visitors. We also utilise the school library to develop an early love of reading and literacy.
C&K Park Lake Kindergarten prides itself on providing supportive learning environments and programs that exceed the Australian National Quality Standards. Our Kindergarten is a special place, where children are encouraged to achieve their individual potential and wonderful memories are created for each child and their family.
No two days are the same at C&K Park Lake 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 Park Lake 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.
