Bellbowrie Kindergarten is an affiliated kindergarten with C&K which means it is owned and operated by a volunteer parent management committee that has a signed agreement with the Creche and Kindergarten Association Limited (C&K)
C&K is a not for profit organisation. This means profits are reinvested to ensure the best outcome is achieved to benefit children and educators at their services. C&K has offered the highest standard in early childhood education and care since its inception in 1907. C&K is our Central Governing Body (CGB) which manages and disperses funding, federal and state, to branch, affiliate and associate services.
The C&K philosophy states that: Children are our greatest asset. Society can often be judged on how children are regarded. C&K considers both children and childhood to be precious and, therefore, what is best for children is the highest priority. Offering a natural learning through play concept at all C&K services enriches the lives of children and their families to achieve the C&K vision of a childhood fulfilled. Attending a C&K kindergarten service provides opportunities for your child to learn through play, prepare them for their schooling life and make lifelong friends.
As part of Affiliation and the commitment to providing the highest quality of early childhood education and care, C&K provides each service with a Children Services Manager. These professionals support and mentor staff to achieve high quality care, education and operation within their service. They are responsible for visiting each C&K service, providing curriculum support, advice and information and are available to discuss curriculum and learning expectations and welcome enquiries from families.
