Welcome to C&K Redlands Community Kindergarten. We offer quality education and care for children aged in the year before they attend Prep. We are a dedicated kindergarten so your child will take part in a child-orientated play based program with other children their age.
Our kindergarten operates on a five-day fortnight. We are located opposite Cleveland State School on Queen Street, Cleveland. Our centre has stimulating and natural indoor and outdoor environments that offer a range of opportunities for children to learn through play.
Our program is co-constructed by the children and staff which is reflective of Building Waterfalls and the Early Years Learning Framework. Our child-initiated curriculum recognises the value and richness of play as a catalyst for children’s learning. Our program provides opportunities for individuals to be successful learners. Routines are flexible, age appropriate and child initiated. Children’s individual learning is taken into consideration during programming. When children are immersed in a project, the staff respectfully acknowledge this by being flexible with time constraints. Our environment remains fairly constant during the year, establishing a sense of control and understanding of where things go and can be found. The children’s interests and ideas will instigate change where necessary. Our centre philosophy reflects current understandings of the importance of early childhood and value of play.
We truly believe that real life experiences give children true understandings.
All members of our teaching team bring a wealth of experience and knowledge and we are so fortunate to have such a dedicated team at C&K Redlands Community Kindergarten.
C&K Redlands Community Kindergarten believes that a partnership with families, within a warm, naturally aesthetic and supportive play based learning environment, which honours and respects the rights and individuality of children, staff and families is best for lifelong learning.
No two days are the same at C&K Redlands Community Kindergarten. 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 Redlands Community Kindergarten. 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.
