C&K, Queensland’s pre-eminent provider of early childhood education and care, has opened its brand new, state-of-the-art childcare centre for children and families in Upper Kedron.
Nestled amongst the natural bush of Upper Kedron, within the master-planned community of Ellendale, this new early learning centre has been designed in collaboration with teachers, educators and architects, to create inviting spaces for children to explore, discover, learn and play. The centre features C&K’s renowned education and care philosophies which have benefited Queensland children for the last 113 years.
C&K Upper Kedron Childcare Centre brings a much-needed service to the Ellendale Upper Kedron community, providing outstanding education and care from 6:30am to 6:00pm, 52 weeks a year for children from 6 weeks to five years.
The centre offers childcare and kindergarten programs with both age-based rooms and communal learning spaces where all children belong, feel safe and can make friends.
Centre features include an expansive natural outdoor play area, modern indoor areas equipped with resources for various ages and stages of development, healthy and nutritious meals prepared by an on-site Chef, and access to visiting entertainment and learning programs.
Chantelle Hand is the Director of the new C&K Upper Kedron Childcare Centre.
“My team and I are thrilled to be able to share our passion for child-led learning and nature play with children and families in our Ellendale Upper Kedron community,” Ms Hand said.
“Our curriculum approach at C&K is designed to spark children’s imaginations. We encourage children to express their creativity and challenge themselves as they become capable and confident learners, preparing for a successful transition to school.
“Our indoor and outdoor spaces have been created to foster curiosity as children explore, experiment and play.
“As an early childhood teacher, I look forward to coming to work every day because I get to see happy, smiling faces, knowing I can support children to become curious and confident learners.
I’d like to invite the Upper Kedron community to visit our new centre and come and see how we learn through play,” she said.
Ellendale is being developed by Cedar Woods Properties, with Development Director, Peter Starr welcoming C&K Upper Kedron Childcare Centre as a fantastic addition to the community.
“We have a lot of young couples and families moving to Ellendale because they see our community as the perfect place to raise children – it’s quiet, safe, close to local schools, surrounded by natural bushland and has its own park with an adventure playground,” he said.
“We’re pleased to have such a reputable early education and care provider join the Ellendale community, with state-of-the-art facilities giving our young residents the best start in life.
“The addition of C&K Upper Kedron Childcare Centre is a great convenience for parents who are now able to have their little ones cared for close to home.
“The childcare centre is situated within our planned neighbourhood village, which is expected to include a number of retailers over the coming years.”
