Wallaville Kindy-Care (Trading As Wallaville Kindergarten)

Welcome

Wallaville Kindergarten is a not-for-profit community based centre that has been educating and caring for children in the district for over 43 years.

We are a small community run service, affiliated with C&K - Queensland's largest and longest established provider of community based early childhood education.

We use a play based curriculum underpinned by the Early Years Learning Framework.

Our centre offers both Limited Hours Occasional Care and Kindergarten programs, run by qualified and professionally trained staff.

For more information, please refer to our Kindergarten Flyer here.

Great Start to Kindergarten Pre-kindy Program 2022 

C&K has been successful in securing funding from the Queensland Department of Education for the Great Start to Kindergarten Pre-kindy Program. This program provides funding for community kindergartens selected by the Department to offer no-cost or low-cost three-year-old programs in terms 3 and 4 in 2022. 

To be eligible for the funding, children need to have turned three by 30 June 2022. 

Wallaville Kindergarten is offering a Pre-kindy in a kindergarten program for three-year-olds in terms 3 and 4, 2022. 

Please contact the National Translating and Interpreting Service to support families with enrolments, inclusion, and medical needs forms. This service provides clarity to help remove language barriers that impact the child's needs.  

Pre-kindy in a kindergarten program 

Three-year-old children will attend the existing high-quality community kindergarten program alongside four-year-olds, which will complement and extend children's learning at home. It also provides learning opportunities that are not always readily available in a home context – including building relationships with teachers and learning to cooperate with peers in a group environment. 

Attending this program in terms 3 and 4, 2022 will provide children with opportunities to learn alongside older children and provide an individualised and developmentally appropriate approach. 

Please contact us for more information or to enrol and secure your child’s place.

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).
