Our kindergarten is located in an enviable position at Rowes Bay, Townsville. We overlook the Coral Sea and Magnetic Island. We have a large leafy, shady playground and a variety of wildlife frequenting our beautiful paperbark trees and ferns. Our building is designed to catch the sea breeze so is light and airy.
C&K Rowes Bay Kindergarten is more than 50 years old and has gained a reputation over the years for providing a true play based program with trees to climb, dirt to play in and grass to roll on. We pride ourselves on having a natural setting with an open style building, encouraging children to interact with the great outdoors for large parts of the day.
Our staff are highly qualified, experienced and believe that children come first and that learning occurs most effectively through play. In 2018 our centre was assessed and rated against the National Quality Standards. We received an Exceeding rating in all seven quality areas, and therefore our overall rating was Exceeding NQS.
To be eligible for the kindergarten program, children must turn 3 prior to commencement.
The maximum number of children in each group is 22.
No two days are the same at C&K Rowes Bay 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 Rowes Bay 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.
