Welcome to C&K Weir Community Kindergarten.
We are an 88 place purpose-built kindergarten situated on the beautiful grounds of Weir State School. Established in 2012, we cater to children between the ages of 3.5 and 5 years. Being on a school site allows us many opportunities to experience what school life is about through our transitions program. We also benefit from regular library visits and inclusion in school events such as sports day, NAIDOC celebrations and concerts.
Each of our two rooms are staffed with degree qualified Early Childhood Teachers and diploma trained assistants.
Accredited Forest and Bush Kindergarten
We're proudly accredited with Nature Play QLD, one of only 16 in Queensland for our nature program.
Our centre prides itself on bringing nature into both the indoor and outdoor spaces which include an abundance of native flora and fauna. We have a strong focus on providing loose and recyclable parts within our learning spaces and places. Our flexible program provides opportunities for children to move between the indoor and outdoor environments throughout their day.
Our regular “Beyond the Fence” excursions strengthen our commitment to both conservation and sustainability with a focus on discovering, understanding and protecting our world. At C&K Weir we believe that “If we want children to flourish, to become truly empowered, then let us allow them to love the earth before we ask them to save it.” - David Sobel.
In 2017, C&K Weir won the C&K award for Inclusive Practice and our overall award for excellence, the Professor Mary Mahoney Award for Excellence.
