About C&K

The Crèche and Kindergarten Association

C&K are pioneers in early childhood and have been educating and caring children since 1907. They are a voluntary, non-government organisation who put children first. In order to remain affiliated with C&K, compliance with C&K policies must be shown. C&K policies require standards which are higher than those required by the Office for Early Childhood and Care, who license Kindergartens and Child Care Centres. The Kindy has been affiliated with C&K since 1970.

Licensing

Services in Queensland are licensed under the Office for Early Childhood Education and Care (OEC). Services must comply with the Child Care Act 2002 and Child Care Regulations 2003. All services must meet minimum standards regarding programs, educator to children ratios and educator qualifications. Early Childhood Officers (ECO) regularly visit services to monitor compliance with legislation. A compliance log book is required on site to record any compliance notices received. This log book is available to all families to access at any stage and is kept in the Parent Library. As a C&K centre, many standards are above legislated requirements.

National Quality Framework

The National Quality Framework (NQF) is to be fully implemented from July 2012 in services. It is an attempt by the Council of Australian Governments to raise standards across early childhood education and care in Australia, including introducing nationally, the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF).  Building Waterfalls is already above expected curriculum standards and is aligned with the framework. Should you require further information on EYLF, either contact the Kindy or the OEC.
