Community Kinders Plus is a Place Based, Not for Profit Early Years Manager which began operation in 2012.
CKP is an Early Years Management organisation that is accountable for the delivery of the service at 20 other kindergartens across the City of Frankston and Mornington Peninsula Shire.
Our role as the Approved Provider is to implement legislation, key decision making, employment and management of all staff, professional development, strategic planning, financial management, facility management, enrolments and the kindergarten curriculum in consultation with our educators.
CKP believes this management and support provides our educators with the opportunity to develop strong community links and a quality program that recognises the individual needs of the children that access our service.
All children attending a CKP kindergarten will undertake FREE literacy and numeracy assessments throughout the year to establish any areas of concern and then ensure that the kindergarten program is tailored to meet these needs.
Community Kinders Plus strongly invests in the early years focusing its service delivery upon providing quality early childhood programs for children in the year prior to schooling. However, CKP also acknowledges that service delivery goes beyond this year and therefore will seek to discover ways that its service delivery in the future may include families and their children from birth to primary school age. Service delivery expanding upon the year before school already exists in some services with three-year old kindergarten, activity groups and occasional care already offered. The future, however is not limited to this and demographic needs and financial viability may be extended into various forms of education and care.
It is with this in mind that CKP has developed their new strategic plan for 2018 – 2021. To find out more about the strategic plan, please click on the following links;
