Welcome

C&K Wilston Community Childcare Centre is housed in a traditional Queensland style building and accommodates children between the ages of 6 weeks to 5 years. Our homelike environment ensures children feel safe, secure and supported while in the care of our qualified educators. Our educators are dedicated to providing high quality care to the children and families at the service.

We offer a unique environment with large natural play spaces and we encourage the care of our natural world through modelling and teaching responsibility and sustainability practices. Educators promote sustainable initiatives by recycling, water conservation through the use of water tanks, worm farm, green wall and bush tucker gardens to connect children and families to the environment.

C&K Wilston embraces our early childhood curriculum C&K Building waterfalls teaching and learning guidelines. C&K’s curriculum gives emphasis to encouraging children to express their own ideas and understandings through play. During play your child will experience many opportunities to explore, solve problems, develop friendships, imagine, use their creativity and extend their capabilities in language, literacy, numeracy, arts and sciences.

Our kindergarten room offers a government approved kindergarten program run by a fully qualified and trained teacher.

Child-Led Learning 

No two days are the same at C&K Wilston. Our teaching team tailor each day’s learning taking into account the interests of the children in the group. The spacious environment at our kindy is thoughtfully planned and well resourced. There is a focus on music, drama, literature and visual arts and time spent discovering the natural environment outdoors.

Community Spirit 

Community spirit is important to us at C&K Wilston. We foster our strong ties to the local community by encouraging parent involvement in the daily operations of the kindergarten. We often hold and partake in community events and love connecting with local businesses and groups around us.
