Welcome to C&K QUT Kelvin Grove.
Our centre is a 5 room, Long Day Care (LDC) service with a LDC funded kindergarten program.
The service provides care and education for families who attend and work at the Queensland University of Technology (QUT), people who work in the city and Kelvin Grove and inner city residents. We have a very multicultural service, with many of our families from a cultural and linguistically diverse back ground. This diversity enriches our centre as we incorporate into the service the families and educators culture and language through experiences, displays, songs, pedagogical approaches to our educational practice and ways of doing.
We have strong links with QUT and Kelvin Grove (urban village) community. We have worked with the university on a number of projects including our art show and assisting trialling new and innovative technology developed for early childhood education by university departments. In previous art shows students have assisted us from the development of the art show to assisting of the night. We have a strong parent group who are very involved and supportive of our projects and fundraisers, and invest a lot of their own time for the overall benefit of our service.
We are very fortunate to have an outdoor space that allows us to explore, discover and provide opportunities for children to take safe risks. We have recently been successful in our application for the gambling grant which has allowed us to improve and extend on our outdoor space for the children.
We feel very proud about our centre and being able to share the results of our strong and collaborative relationships with our community.
Queensland Government Approved Program
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.
No two days are the same at C&K QUT Kelvin Grove. 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 QUT Kelvin Grove. 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.
