Our service celebrates a tradition of excellence in education and care by setting high expectations for social and emotional growth. Our dedicated staff and supportive families jointly facilitate the development of our children. 

Our friendly and passionate educators encourage and support your children, giving them opportunity to explore their strengths, talents and abilities, to build life-long relationships with their peers. We promote and endorse Nature Play Queensland and their Risky Play philosophy.

KDK Kids First Out side School hours care has been an important and valued part of many children’s lives during their primary school experience for the past 12 years.
All members of our service are valued and their holistic interests are respected, all members are treated equitably and equally in an environment free of bias and prejudice.
Children are supported and have the opportunity to build lifelong relationships with their peers and others. All children are encouraged to have a sense of freedom to explore their strengths, talents, and abilities. All children are also encouraged to feel supported in exploring new challenges. Our children are encouraged to express their views, interests, wants, and needs to educators. Furthermore, the children are encouraged to offer input to the centres program, to help cater to each individual’s interests and needs to have a sense of belonging and ownership.
