Our History

We acknowledge the Turrbal people, the traditional owners of the land on which Kedron Heights Community Kindergarten stands.

 

1961 Kedron Heights Child Care Centre applied for a lease of some land in Kitchener Road for the purpose of building a child care centre.

 

1962 the Lord Mayor of the time, Clem Jones, opened a fete on the land at 107 Kitchener Road, to raise funds for the building that stands today.

 

In October 1962, a 250£ building and equipment grant from the Dept of Education, along with a 250£ grant from the city council and a 2500£ loan from the bank saw the start of construction of the building.

 

It was 1963 and after many weekend working bees, that the building was finally completed.The building was opened 4 March 1963 and was initially affiliated with

C & K in February 1964.

 

2006 saw the original building modified to enclose the patio area into the playroom, thus creating a larger indoor playroom space.

 

2012 Our new kitchen was installed.

 

2013 The 50th year of the Kindy saw a major redevelopment of the playground and outdoor area thanks to a Qld Government Grant.

 

2014 Kedron Heights Preschool and Kindergarten became Kedron Heights Community Kindergarten (KHCK). Our new name was highlighted with the completion of our new front signs which were generously funded by the member for Stafford Dr Anthony Lynham.

In 2015, our centre received a fresh coat of paint inside and in the sandpit area. Sections of our fencing were replaced to be 1.5m in height, which is above the minimum height needed. These were courtesy of the Queensland Government Community Gambling Grant Benefit Fund

 

2017 Change in the Kindy’s Central Governing Body (CGB) from C&K to The Gowrie (Qld).
