The recent addition of a labyrinth at C&K Maleny Community Kindergarten, has created a magical new space in the kindy’s beautiful established playground.
The patterned stepping-stones encourage children of all abilities to lose themselves while exploring in nature.
Labyrinths, which have been a feature of gardens since ancient Greece, are known to reduce levels of anxiety and stress – something that has been a powerful tool over many centuries, through many cultures.
The design of the labyrinth was a collaboration inspired by explorations of children, educators and families along with TB Landscaping & Stone, who did a wonderful job of building it.
The Maleny community built the Kindergarten over 55 years ago in one weekend. Generations of children from Maleny and surrounding communities have started their learning journey at the kindy.
C&K Maleny caters for children aged 3-4, in the year prior to Prep. All enquiries welcomed: phone 54 942 330 or through the website www.candk.asn.au
