    My dd went to a Good start and they ran the kindy curriculum from 9 - 3 4 days a week but it was within a long daycare setting. Dd had a really great teacher who followed the kids lead.
    Oh no, I just realised you meant the C and K Childcare centre (Arnwood Place?) not the C and K kindergarten in Tarragindi.

    When my DS was in kindy (5 days per fortnight, 3 days one week and 2 days the next, 9am - 3pm each day) he went to before and after school care. This was through his daycare, they picked him up in a bus and bought him back to the daycare. He also spent the Friday of the 2 day a week kindy week in daycare (so once a fortnight he was there for a full day).

    Our boys are too young for this to be an issue yet, but we've started thinking through the logistics. So far, about the only thing we can think of is to maybe hire an au pair who can do drop-offs and pick-ups.

    We live rurally and they've set our kindy up to run school hours and the school buses will pick up and drop off. We're lucky in that we had family/friends nannying for us last year when DS1 was there. Next year when DS2 can go he will either go to hubby at the farm afterwards (I'll drop him on the bus at 7:30) or I'll get my sil to pick him up.

    Does QLD have family day care options? We are in VIC and our family daycare educator does kinder drop off and pick ups when I am at uni/work.

    I would seek out another Daycare with Kindy Program. We had the same problem but were lucky our Daycare had a great Kindy Program (Accredited and basically the same as C&K). The other option is to do pre-prep through a private school. This is what we will be doing next year for my 3 year old as our School (Private) has just introduced it. We had the option of Long Day or Short Day. C & K is unfortunately not set up for working parents. I have heard that some are now offering before and After school care if they are on school grounds so it may be worth just asking at a few different centres.
