C&K Taranganba Community Kindergarten is a purpose built kindergarten. The kindergarten is located in a multicultural area, situated behind Taranganba State School in Taranganba Road. Since we are in close proximity to Taranganba State School, the kindergartens uses the school library, visit the prep classes, play on the prep playground and joins the school for special performers. All these visits help ease the transition to school for both children and families.

Here at C&K Taranganba Community Kindergarten, we embrace C&K's nationally acclaimed and highly regarded curriculum approach. This is a play based curriculum that gives emphasis to encourage children to express and explore their own ideas in play. With educator support children develop the skills needed to negotiate play with peers and to solve social conflicts.

Waiting lists are growing, so it is advised that you put your child on the waiting list today by completing the online form or by visiting our service.

C&K Taranganba Community Kindergarten believes that all children have the right to an excellent learning environment. All children are unique with individual needs in relation to learning and learn skills at individual rates. The underlying foundation for our Centre’s Philosophy stems from the C&K philosophy “Where children come first.” Our Kindergarten is inclusive of all children, including, cultural diversity, additional needs and varying, socio-economic levels. A safe and nurturing environment enables all children to develop to their full potential. Children are encouraged to take time with activities and individual learning is extended upon. A deep respect for nature and the use of sustainable practices are embedded within the daily program where both educators and children work together to consciously care for the world around them.

We acknowledge that children require a learning environment that provides opportunities for creativity, cooperation, individual choice and open-ended experiences. We plan environments where children can enjoy their childhood, whilst developing skills in leadership, decision making, problem solving, asking questions, initiating and reflecting. Our centre highlights the true importance of play. Through play, children will connect, listen, enlarge and explore all aspects of their environment. Play meets outcomes from the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guideline and Early Years Learning Framework.

We will listen, answer, respect and support young children in their development. We will empower children to make decisions and act on them. We believe the learner is a citizen of our community, incorporating family, schools, community and culture. We invite the community into our kindy to share and contribute to the learning and development of the child as a WHOLE being. We take pride in the integration and involvement with our neighbouring school. We value and welcome the input of families and community as an inaugural part of a child’s development.

Child-Led Learning 

No two days are the same at C&K Taranganba. 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 Taranganba. 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.

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 may be able to 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. 

Our curriculum approach, Listening and Learning Together, aligns with both The Early Years Learning Framework for Australia (EYLF), and the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guideline (QKLG).

It 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 and through written documentation in your centre, and in some centres through StoryPark (an app and website).
