Welcome to C&K Ripley Childcare Centre

Welcome to C&K Ripley

At C&K Ripley Childcare Centre, we welcome children from 6 weeks of age to 5 years old and provide care and early learning five days a week from 6:30am to 6:30pm.

As a home away from home, our environment provides a safe, secure and supported space for your child. Our dedicated, friendly and qualified staff nurture play-based learning, fostering a life-long love of learning. Our families love our large natural outdoor area, where we encourage children to explore, discover, play and engage in nature. 

We have a wide range of cultural and linguistic background with our families and staff. This provides us the opportunity to incorporate these cultures and languages throughout the centre. Our approach to inclusion and diversity ensures that every child, family and staff member feels safe, welcomed and important.

Infant and Toddler Approach

At C&K we are exploring new approaches for the educators that care for and educate our littlest people at C&K childcare centres. The Infant and Toddler approach, which we have developed, is all about being in the moment with your child. Our philosophy for this age group is to “slow down” and be in the moment with your child.

Child-Led Learning 

No two days are the same at C&K Ripley. Each day’s learning is driven by the interests and ideas of the children. The spacious and natural environments within our centre are thoughtfully planned and well resourced, with opportunities to meet the needs and interests of all children who attend.

Community Spirit 

Community spirit is important to us at C&K Ripley. We foster strong ties to the local community and encourage parent involvement in the daily operations of the centre.

Kindergarten Program

Our dedicated and qualified teachers and educators nurture healthy minds and bodies, celebrating each child’s individual strengths to support their participation and growth towards their full potential. We co-design vibrant learning communities with children, families, and communities, ensuring your C&K centre is a place where your child feels safe, makes friends, and belongs.

Our indoor and outdoor spaces ignite imaginations and foster curiosity, allowing children to explore, experiment, play, and learn. Educators are open to your child’s ideas and will guide their social and emotional growth. Your child will have opportunities to explore, solve problems, develop friendships, use their creativity, and play. We also prepare children for the transition to school and a lifelong love of learning.

All C&K community kindergartens and childcare centres deliver a government-approved kindergarten program.

Infant and Toddler Approach

C&K has developed a specialized infant and toddler approach, guiding the care and education of our youngest learners. Our warm and professional educators "slow down" to be in the moment with your child as they explore the world. We focus on developing deep, trusting relationships with each baby and toddler, ensuring they feel safe, happy, and secure through consistent routines and rituals.

Babies and toddlers are naturally curious about the world, and we delight in sharing their sense of wonder.

Play-Based Learning at C&K

Play-based learning at C&K reflects the children, educators, families, and communities at each centre. Our teachers and educators enrich and extend children’s play in meaningful ways. For example, if a child is playing in the sandpit, an educator might encourage them to draw maps in the sand or measure water levels, supporting literacy and numeracy development.

Programs at C&K centres may also include:

Nature Play: Time to play freely outdoors, connect with nature, and use natural materials.

Risky Play: Safe exploration of questions like "Can this branch take my weight?" under expert supervision.

STEM: Inquiry-based experiences incorporating Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.

Literacy and Language: Talking, reading, conversing, drawing, and playing with open-ended materials.

The Arts: Exploring creativity through visual arts, drama, music, movement, and a variety of materials.

First Nations Peoples' Histories and Perspectives: Learning about and respecting the connections to land, sea, and sky in all our programs.
