Welcome to West End Scott Street Community Kindergarten!  Our beautiful kindergarten holds a special place in the hearts of many local families as it has been operating now for over 65 years.

We provide a high quality program for children in an engaging, interesting, well resourced and aesthetically pleasing learning environment.

Our classic Queenslander building was purposefully renovated by award winning Brisbane architects in 2008. It is a attractive and spacious home like environment, where children feel comfortable, welcome and relaxed to learn at their own pace through play.

We are located conveniently across the road from West End State Primary School in the vibrant inner city suburb of West End.

You can find us at 15 Hardgrave Road (corner of Scott Street). We are very close to Davis Street Park and Montague Rd.

    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).
