C&K Herston Road Long Day Care, we are very lucky to have a natural outdoor area that provides children with an outlet to explore, engage and supports motor development. The children have a large natural space to be adventurous. Because we are so close to the Queensland University or Technology (QUT) we endeavor to build that community partnership and take excursions to their library, football fields and their newly developed picnic areas around the campus.
