About Our Kindy

The kindergarten is a two unit community centre with 88 enrolments. Each kindy program has 22 children in the group with qualified Early Childhood Teachers and Educators in each group.
Attendance is available in one of the following groups:
At Aspley East Kindy we pride ourselves on fostering an inclusive community and learning environments in which the diversity and individuality of families and children is recognised and celebrated. C&K believes that the inclusion of all children is a mutually enriching experience for our children, their families, C&K personnel and C&K stakeholders. Individuality and the interdependence of all children, including those from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds and children with additional needs, are appreciated, respected and encouraged by C&K.
We are a not-for-profit organisation and are affiliated with C&K. As an affiliate service the Management Committee must manage the Centre according to C&K operational guidelines and educational standards. C&K is our Central Governing Body (CGB). We receive partial funding through the Queensland Kindergarten Funding Scheme (QKFS) with the remainder of our operational costs covered by the payment of fees from families attending the Centre.
AT ASPLEY EAST...
On 1st January 2012 the National Quality Framework (NQF) introduced a new integrated national approach to the regulation and quality assessment processes for early childhood services.
As an existing licensed service we are now deemed as Approved Providers and our Centre as an Approved Service.
We have been assessed and determined to be "Exceeding" the National Quality Standard.
Included in the fees at Aspley East Kindergarten is an online platform used to dcument and share children's learning and educator documentation with children, families and educators. Storypark is a professional tool rather than a social media platform.
• Parents / Guardians own and manage their child’s Storypark account. They are able to invite other interested people (e.g. grandparents) to be authorised viewers.
• Parents / Guardians are invited to respond to published documentation regarding their child, either as an individual entry or community post.
• Parents / Guardians are able to create, post and print learning stories of their child. Any information posted must be relevant and respectful.
