Welcome to C&K QUT Gardens Point Community Childcare Centre. 

C&K QUT Gardens Point Community Childcare Centre offers a safe, warm and flexible education and care environment for children aged six weeks to five years.

Centrally located next to QUT Garden’s Point campus and the Brisbane Botanical gardens, the centre is C&K’s only service located in the Brisbane CBD.

The professional early childhood educators, assistants and the director ensure your child receives the best care and educational program so you can feel comfortable and confident in your choice. 

At C&K Gardens Point we deliver the four essential elements needed for optimal, emotional, physical, social and intellectual growth and development in early childhood education and care:
- A nurturing, stimulating, caring and fun-filled learning environment
- Qualified teachers and early childhood educators
- Play based learning
- The involvement of parents in their child’s learning

Our early childhood curriculum C&K Building waterfalls teaching and learning guidelines ensures your child will experience many opportunities to explore, solve problems, develop friendships, imagine, use their creativity and extend their capabilities in language, literacy and numeracy. in the areas of Language, Literacy, Numeracy, the Arts and Sciences.

Queensland Government Approved Program  

Welcome to C&K QUT Gardens Point Childcare. 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.

Child-Led Learning 

No two days are the same at C&K QUT Gardens Point Childcare. 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 QUT Gardens Point Childcare. 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.

C&K has developed a Birth to Three 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 childcares feature the quality C&K 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 guided by University qualified teachers and support 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, children and parents. The physical indoor and outdoor environment also plays a part. At C&K we believe children are competent and capable learners, and approach our education program with this in mind.
