Welcome to Kensington Community Children’s Co-Operative
WE ARE A CHILD SAFE ORGANISATION
Why choose KCCC ?
Kensington Community Children’s Co-operative is unique in its cooperative model. We are a not-for-profit community-based model governed by a committed group of parents with extremely dedicated and highly qualified staff. We have a strong business profile and are in sound financial shape, which means we can focus on what is best for children rather than profits.
We offer education and care to children from 6 weeks to school age as well as Sessional and Integrated Kindergarten programs. We are a 140 place centre with 50 dedicated staff.
We provide a safe and nurturing environment in which we stimulate enquiry, invite discussions, engage the senses and offer choices for children to learn, discover and grow. Our natural setting is an integral part of our program and we encourage and foster sustainable practices.
A parent-governed cooperative that has been proudly educating and caring for children from Kensington and surrounding areas since 1982.

Nurturing, Educational and Fun!
At KCCC our primary aim is to provide quality early childhood education that helps children grow, develop and learn in a safe, stimulating and fun environment. We value the uniqueness of each child, their interests, learning styles, and backgrounds.
Our natural setting is an integral part of our program and we encourage and foster sustainable practices. Our programs and shared spaces encourage collaboration and communication, exploration and respect children as capable and competent.
We recognise and value the primary role that families play in their children’s lives and foster strong partnerships with families to create the best learning opportunities for children.
Our staff members knowledge, experience and commitment encourages children to have a positive attitude to challenge, learn and respect. Our integrated teaching and learning approaches have a strong focus on child-directed play and learning that is driven by the child’s interest to understand and know more.
