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.

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).
