C&K Windaroo Community Kindergarten
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).¬†
