Welcome to C&K Seven Hills Community Kindergarten.

We offer quality education and care for pre-prep children. We are a dedicated kindergarten that offer a structured program, while allowing time for play.

We are located on Seven Hills State School grounds, tucked in a natural bush setting near the school oval, behind the tennis courts. We have a close relationship with the school and take part in many of their school events including sports days and under 8's day. Together with Seven Hills State School, we provide a transition to school program throughout term 4 with regular visits to the school to spend time with the prep students and explore the library.

We have a strong focus on nature play, developing environmental awareness, developing independence and resilience, cooperative learning and early literacy and numeracy whilst supporting each child in their social and emotional development. Each educator instils routine and structure into the daily program, providing regular opportunities for whole group reflective learning. 
There is a vast array of learning opportunities for the children to explore their potential through the arts, cooking, numeracy, literacy, tinkering and engineering, manual construction, Information and Communication Technology (ICT), science and nature exploration. At C&K Seven Hills, each child is encouraged and supported to become and educational risk taker with the confidence to explore multiple disciplines for maximum learning opportunities. 
As a team of educator's, our current focus is on early science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) learning and we are working towards becoming a certified 'little scientist house'. Through the provision of open ended resources and learning opportunities the children are encouraged to ask questions, seek answers, share ideas and develop a deeper understanding of STEM which improves cognition and develops higher order thinking processes in young children.

Queensland Government Approved Program  

We offer a unique kindergarten program based on our own internationally-recognised teaching guidelines - ‘Building waterfalls’. Our government approved program is centred around a living and learning community that values children as competent and capable individuals. This play-based curriculum helps children to socialise, build confidence, develop communication and early literacy and numeracy skills to ensure your child is school ready.

Child-Led Learning 

No two days are the same at C&K Seven Hills 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 

Community spirit is important to us at C&K Seven Hills Community Kindergarten. We foster our strong ties to the local community by encouraging parent input and involvement in the daily operations of the kindergarten and programming decisions. We often hold and partake in community events and love connecting with local businesses and groups around us. Throughout the year, the children learn about our traditional ancestors and Indigenous perspectives through appreciation and respect for the land. They engage in many outdoor learning opportunities such as sustainability, gardening and growing and process art experiences. 


Don’t miss out on a place, enrol your child today. You can:

1. Enrol now - Please call or email us. You may be able to enrol immediately if a place is available. If a place is not available, we will place your child on a waiting list.

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 can 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. 

All C&K centres feature Listening and Learning Together: The C&K Curriculum Approach. The learning outcomes in our approach align with both The Early Years Learning Framework for Australia (EYLF), and the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guideline (QKLG).

Our approach 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, through written documentation in your centre and through StoryPark (an app and website).

In 2019, we became a certified Little Scientists House highlighting our excellence in delivering a STEM based learning program.

STEM learning is the foundation for critical thinking, problem solving, reflexive thinking, inquiry and co-constructive learning. Research indicates that children exposed to early STEM learning have greater academic successes when they commence formal schooling.
