WGKP offers a pre-prep program to children aged 3.5 to 4.5 when they attend. We have 2 groups who attend a 5 day fortnight. Group 1 attends every Monday and Tuesday and alternate Wednesdays and group 2 attends every other Wednesday and each Thursday and Friday. The maximum class size for each group is 25 children.

Nominations for waiting lists are open from birth, meaning nominations for 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022 are currently open.

To be eligible for the ballot, the nomination form must be accompanied by the non-refundable ballot fee of $22.00. A separate nomination form and fee is required for each child to be entered in the ballot. The ballot closes on the fourth Friday in March in the year immediately preceding the year of enrolment. The ballot is drawn the next day, Saturday at 10:00am. All parents and carers are welcome to attend but it is not mandatory. 

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 can 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. 

All C&K centres feature Listening and Learning Together: The C&K Curriculum Approach. The learning outcomes in our approach align with both The Early Years Learning Framework for Australia (EYLF), and the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guideline (QKLG).

Our approach 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, through written documentation in your centre and through StoryPark (an app and website).
