Welcome to C&K Salisbury Community Childcare Centre. Our specific intention is to aim to give every child the best start in life possible through reciprocal and respectful relationships in a centre that feels like a home away from home that is fun, unique and committed to nurturing the development of the whole child. Our centre follows C&K’s Building Waterfalls Curriculum which was first published in 2006. Building Waterfalls is Australia’s first collaborative birth to school age curriculum created by and for educators, parents and children. Informed by beliefs and principles shaped over 107 years, it captures the essence of C&K and communicates the belief that early childhood education and care settings are places where children come first. We believe that very young children, in the presence of passionate and committed educators, are quite capable of engaging in education for sustainability and in ‘making a difference’. Through this belief we advocate for sustainable nutrition practices and incorporating agricultural practices in the program and daily life of the centre. The service is licensed for 48 places per day for children aged 6 weeks to school aged. The licence capacity translates as 2 staff to 8 babies aged 6 weeks to 2.5 years, 2 staff to 12 children aged 2 years to 3 years and 2 staff members to 24 children aged 3.5 years to school age. We show respect for children and their families through recognising that families are the child’s first and most influential teachers and we will endeavour to support families as they undertake this important role. Management will ensure there is continuity of care and implement effective forms of communication. A thorough orientation process will occur for new families starting at our centre to ensure families become familiar with our centre and their child’s educators. We pride ourselves on our flexibility in supporting and creating opportunities for siblings to spend time together throughout the course of the day. We would love to meet your family, please don't hesitate to conact us for a centre tour. C&K Salisbury Community Childcare Centre first opened its doors on 10 September 1992. We are a three room, community based, not for profit centre. Our kindergarten offers a Government Approved Kindergarten Program run by a fully qualified and trained teacher. Children are required to attend a minimum of two days to be eligible for funding. Our qualified, long term staff are dedicated to providing high quality care to the children at the service. C&K Salisbury implements C&K’s own curriculum framework C&K Building waterfalls in all our rooms. Here at C&K Salisbury, we are very proud of our large, natural outdoor playground. The large trees offer lots of natural shade. We also have a dedicated art room where children are free to access to create artwork of their choice.
