About the centre
Norman Park Community Kindergarten (NPCK) is a not-for-profit kindergarten managed by a committee of parents who support our high educator to child ratios of one teacher and two educators to twenty-five children. Our natural kindy grounds are extensive and as we are a one unit centre, there are only ever twenty-five children on site.
At NPCK we value the sense of wonder, exploration and discovery that is childhood. Our aim is create a special place where families, children, educators and the community have a shared sense of belonging and fond memories that will last a lifetime.
Relationships are at the heart of our kindy program and we recognise the importance of family in children’s lives and as their first and most influential educators. Diversity to family life means children experience things in different ways. They bring a variety of experiences, perspectives, expectations, knowledge and skills to their learning. Collaboration and family involvement in our kindy community assists to support children’s growth throughout their kindy year.
Our philosophy views children as capable, competent and eager to learn. We foster children’s leaning and development through our child led play based open indoor outdoor curriculum. We run a Nature Kindergarten Program both on site and through off site excursions to neighbouring bush and park land. Throughout our holistic program we support the use of real tools and real life tasks and facilitate the children’s involvement in assessing risk and safety.
Our Nature Kindergarten Program supports our connection to the land on which we learn and play and to the Jagera people’s past, present and emerging. This connection also extends to our commitment to sustainable practices and conservation which organically occurs in our day-to-day interaction.
Our kindergarten program curriculum is guided by the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guidelines and the Early Years Learning Framework.
We look forward to sharing your kindergarten journey with you.
To assist working families, Norman Park Community Kindergarten offers a Kindy Club service before and after our Kookaburras kindergarten program (Monday, Tuesday and alternate Wednesday only). Kindy club is offered from 7:20am until the commencement of the kindy program and from 2:30pm until 4:30pm. This service is invoiced separately to term fees.
