Kindergarten program details

At Stones Corner Community Kindergarten, we have two kindy groups to choose from. All groups ensure children receive the same number of hours of education across the year. The groups have a maximum of 25 children and are led by an experienced and qualified early childhood teacher. We operate during QLD school terms and are closed for school holidays, public holidays and some pupil free days.  

  • Group A: Monday and Tuesday, 8:30am to 4:00pm
  • Group B: Thursday and Friday 8:30am to 4:00pm

We also run a Nature Day on Wednesdays from 8:30am to 2:30pm (fees apply, contact us for more information).  Nature Day is an additional day on offer to current enrolled families. Events of the day will involve being outdoors the majority of the day with fortnightly community excursions to Norman Creek parklands.

About our kindy 

Welcome to Stones Corner Kindy nestled within Hanlon Park and surrounded by nature. Originally established in 1964 under the name Stones Corner-Buranda Preschool and on the other side of Norman creek in Hanlon Park, Greenslopes, the kindy moved to the current location after the floods in 1974. A name change followed and it saw the now Stones Corner Community Kindergarten Incorporated become affiliated with C&K. We are a not-for-profit kindy run by the families of the current students through an elected Management Committee. Our centre Director and educators support the management committee in providing a beautiful educational environment for the children to explore and learn within. We promote family involvement in all areas of the kindy and value our connection to the local community. Stones Corner Kindy has provided pre-schooling services to the local area for over 55 years. We are proud of our ongoing connections with past students and families, and with the local Bushcare group, schools and businesses. Our vision is to ensure each child develops a positive love of learning, care and respect for life, people and the environment.


Stones Corner Kindy is located on Lincoln Street in Stones Corner, right next door to Hanlon Park and overlooking Norman Creek.

Child-Led Learning  

No two days are the same at Stones Corner Kindy. 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 Stones Corner Kindy. 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.

What year should my child attend kindy?

This table shows the year the Queensland government recommends your child attends kindergarten. Children aged 4 years old by June 30 in the year they attend kindy are also called ‘Eligible age’ or ‘Target age’.

1 July 2019 to 30 June 2020 2024
1 July 2020 to 30 June 2021 2025

All our kindergartens deliver C&K Quality Kindergarten Program. Kindergarten, also known as pre-prep or preschool, is a program for children who are turning 4 by June 30 in the year before they attend school. C&K’s kindy programs are government-approved and led by experienced and university qualified teachers. Our program supports children’s curiosity, creativity, problem solving, resilience and real-world knowledge and skills.

At C&K we know that children do not learn in isolation, so we approach learning as a collaborative relationship between teachers, eaducators, children and families. At C&K we believe children are powerful learners, active citizens, thinkers and theorisers - this is at the heart of our early childhood curriculum. We've designed our indoor and outdoor spaces to ignite imaginations and nurture healthy minds and bodies. 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).

Kindergarten Fees

The Queensland Government provides funding to make kindy free for families with eligible-age children (children turning 4 years old by 30 June in the year they attend kindy). The funding is provided directly to your centre, and if eligible, you will not pay any daily fee.

Free kindy is only available for one kindergarten group, so you may have to pay fees if your child is enrolled in two groups. For example:

  • If your child is enrolled in both kindergarten groups at one kindy.
  • If your child is enrolled in two different kindergartens. You must nominate which kindergarten will receive the funding when you enrol.
  • If your child is enrolled in a kindergarten and a childcare centre, you will only receive free kindy at the kindy and not at the childcare centre.


Daily Fee

Daily fee (eligible-age children) FREE
Daily fee (non-eligible)* - 5 days a fortnight program NA
Daily fee (non-eligible)* - 2 days a week program $120.30

Other Fees

You may also have to pay an enrolment fee and membership fee. These will be one-off fees and paid before your child starts kindergarten.



Enrolment fee NA
Membership fee $5.00

What if I want my 3 year old to go to kindergarten?*

Priority is given to eligible-age children but if there are places available, we are happy to have 3 year old children at kindy and attend for two years.  The subsidies do not apply for 3 year old children, and the daily fee (non-eligible) will apply. Please contact us on 07 3397 9469 for more information on fees for 3 year olds and to discuss your child and your family’s situation.

I have more questions. Who can I talk to?
