Welcome to C&K Tara And District Kindergarten.

We offer quality education and care for children from birth to 5 years, including an approved kindergarten programme for children in the year before they attend school. We provide before school care, after school care and vacation care for children aged from 5 to 12 years.


We are located just across the road from Tara Shire State College and an 8 minute walk from St Joseph's Catholic School. We are able to provide before school, after school and vacation care for children attending St Josephs as they are transported to the centre via the school buses. We are on a quiet street with ample parking outside.


Our centre has a stimulating indoor and outdoor environment that offers a range of opportunities for children to learn through play.


Our centre is very actively involved with the wider community.

Queensland Government Approved Program  

Welcome to C&K Tara And District. We offer a unique kindergarten program based on our own internationally-recognised teaching guidelines - ‘Building waterfalls’. Our government approved program is centred around a living and learning community that values children as competent and capable individuals. This play-based curriculum helps children to socialise, build confidence, develop communication and early literacy and numeracy skills to ensure your child is school ready.

Child-Led Learning 

No two days are the same at C&K Tara And District. Our teaching team tailor each day’s learning taking into account the interests of the children in the group. The spacious environment at our kindy is thoughtfully planned and well resourced. There is a focus on music, drama, literature and visual arts and time spent discovering the natural environment outdoors.

Community Spirit 

Community spirit is important to us at C&K Tara And District. We foster our strong ties to the local community by encouraging parent involvement in the daily operations of the kindergarten. We often hold and partake in community events and love connecting with local businesses and groups around us.
