C&K's commitment to Reconciliation
C&K recognises and respects the traditional custodians of Australia. The importance of continuously developing and refining strategies to improve the connection with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and communities in the area of early childhood education is embedded throughout the everyday at C&K, the C&K philosophy and Listening and Learning Together: C&K Curriculum Approach.
Our leading childcare centres and kindergartens embrace the diversity of children, families, and communities in our daily practices.
C&K Statement of support for the Uluru Statement from the Heart
C&K acknowledges the responsibility that we have in educating and caring for young children, connecting with families, and reflecting our strong and diverse workforce. Partnering with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and their community-controlled organisations to deliver early learning for more than 50 years, we recognise that Australia’s First Nations people have been teaching and learning ways of belonging, being and becoming on these lands for more than 60,000 years.
As an organisation driven by ethics, social justice, and equity, we are committed to listening to advice, sharing of stories and wisdom to better inform our future.
C&K pledges our support for the Uluru Statement from the Heart. We acknowledge the invitation from First Nations people to support meaningful constitutional recognition through providing a First Nations Voice to Parliament enshrined in the Australian Constitution.
Our support for the Uluru Statement from the Heart is an organisational statement to demonstrate our commitment to recognition of an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Voice. It is not intended to reflect the diverse views and opinions of our individual staff, children, or families. We welcome informed and respectful debate in the spirit of learning from each other.
