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.

    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 TBC
    Daily fee (non-eligible)* - 2 days a week program TBC

    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 TBC
    Membership fee TBC

    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 0421 304 192 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? 

    You can find more information on our Kindergarten Fees page or you can download our Fact Sheet.

    Please contact us on 0421 304 192 if you have any other questions.
