Welcome to C&K QUT Kelvin Grove.
At C&K QUT Kelvin Grove 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 7:00am to 6:00pm.
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.
As a home away from home, our environment provides a safe, secure and supported space for your child. Our dedicated, friendly and qualified staff nurture play-based learning, fostering a life-long love of learning. Our families love our large natural outdoor area, where we encourage children to explore, discover, play and engage in nature.
We have a wide range of cultural and linguistic background with our families and staff. This provides us the opportunity to incorporate these cultures and languages throughout the centre. Our approach to inclusion and diversity ensures that every child, family and staff member feels safe, welcomed and important.

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.
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 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.
