Harty Street Kindergarten C&K opened in 1953, became affiliated with the Crèche & Kindergarten Association of Queensland (C&K) in 1967 and changed its name to Harty Street Community Kindergarten & Pre-school Association in 1979. Harty Street Kindergarten C&K is built on the traditional lands of the Yuggera and Turrbal peoples and we wish to acknowledge them as the Traditional Owners of the land. We are also grateful to the past communities of parents who have contributed to the building, management and operation of our kindergarten.
Our kindergarten is a hidden gem! Tucked away on 2000sqm of land is a beautiful, natural and expansive playground where children can enjoy being children. This adventure playground is truly magical and plays a key role in our play-based curriculum allowing exploration, physical and social development. Our varied activities help children to develop emotionally, physically and academically.
“It is our role to nurture and protect our children, provide them with stimulating environments, embrace differences and promote the physical, social, emotional and cognitive development of each child. We believe each child is unique in terms of their cultural heritage, development and life experience. Collectively the children and their families each contribute something very special to the relationships and interactions that are shared within our service. We are inclusive of differences and welcome this within our kindergarten community as we believe it will always enrich our learning environment.”
