Welcome to Western Suburbs Kindergarten. Our mission is to provide our children with a foundation for learning that fosters a connection with and respect for themselves, family, community and the environment.

Children are eligible to attend the kindergarten if they are 3.5 years to 4.5 years on commencement. We have four kindergarten groups that accommodate 22 children in each. Two of these groups operate over two days, 8.00am to 3.45pm. The other two groups operate as a five day fortnight, 8.30am to 2.40pm. For more information please see our Kindergarten Brochure, the Family Handbook and our Additional Information. Please contact the kindergarten for information about vacancies.

We are positive your child will enjoy their time here with us and look forward to sharing time with you and your family as well. EACH YEAR WE HOLD AN OPEN AFTERNOON - keep an eye out for the date that will be advertised on this web page. Families from the local community are welcomed into the Kindy to explore our wonderful Kindy and playground.  Staff and management committee will be available to chat to families about Kindy.

Please contact us for more information.

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 07 4779 3434 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 07 4779 3434 if you have any other questions.
