Welcome to C&K Raceview Congregational Kindergarten. 

The Kindergarten is part of the Raceview Congregational Church which has been serving the Raceview and Ipswich community for over a 150 years. As a community Kindergarten it has its own operations committee which includes members of staff and members of Kindy families. As part of the church community, however, our Kindy families also have access to various support networks and other children and family activities.

The Kindy operates within the core values of the church in that we aim to ensure that every child and Kindy family will feel safe, cared for, loved, valued, nurtured and supported while a part of the Kindy community.  

We are proud of our long standing reputation of offering a high quality program for 3 and 4 year old children. Our educators use the Early Years Learning Framework for Australia, the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guidelines and the C and K Listening and Learning Together to inform the curriculum.

Our physical environment boasts a richly resourced indoor classroom and a large welcoming outdoor area with real grass, established trees and play equipment promoting gross motor development, imaginative play and music appreciation. The ever popular Kindy chickens, budgies and fish, plus our vegetable garden give the children the opportunity to care for and appreciate living things and to practice sustainability.

Our friendly and fully qualified teacher and teacher aides will provide a safe and supportive environment in which your children can grow and learn.

We are positive your child will enjoy their time here with us and look forward to sharing time with you and your family as well. We offer an open invitation to families to play an active role in the centre and input to our programming.

Kindergarten, also known as pre-prep or preschool, is a program for children in the year before they attend school. When places are available, 3-year old children may be able to attend.

C&K's kindergarten programs are guided by university-qualified teachers and support children to be curious, capable, and collaborative learners.

At C&K we know that children do not learn in isolation, for us learning is partnership between teachers, children, parents, and communities. 

Our curriculum approach, Listening and Learning Together, aligns with both The Early Years Learning Framework for Australia (EYLF), and the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guideline (QKLG).

It continues the longstanding traditions and philosophical commitments of C&K to our children, families and communities. Read more about the history of C&K.

We've designed our indoor and outdoor spaces to ignite imaginations, nurture healthy minds and bodies, as children explore, experiment, play and learn.

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 journey is shared with you via conversations with your child's educators and through written documentation in your centre, and in some centres through StoryPark (an app and website).
