Pre-Kindy / Kindy

Early Learning Centre

Caloundra Christian College are proud to offer to families an Early Learning Centre where children are taught and nurtured by our loving, caring, and dedicated Christian staff.

These years are critical in creating experiences that will establish a love and passion for learning. We want children to be curious, ask questions, take learning risks, and learn from the adventure.

Play is the natural way for children to discover, create, and learn to become objective, independent thinkers. Research shows that play provides the most appropriate stimulus for brain development, therefore, we offer a play-based curriculum in both our Pre-Kindy and Kindy.

We believe every child is unique, and created in God’s image. Even at this early age, we value the importance of instilling the awareness in every child that they are significant, special, and loved.

Program Options

The Early Learning Community offers the option of an extended day program from 7:30am to 5:30pm. This provides flexibility for families requiring extra hours of care, and with our pricing structure, allows families to enrol for a long day or a short day.

We also offer a Vacation Care program for Kindy and Pre-Kindy children during school holidays from 7:30am to 5:30pm.

Our Pre-Kindy children experience a smooth transition to our Kindy as they are well prepared by our excellent educational program. By enrolling in our Kindy, you will be given preference to enter Prep at Caloundra Christian College, providing continuity and a positive schooling experience for your child.
