Glen Iris families - we've been working hard to build you a dreamy, multi-level, early learning oasis... and it's almost ready!

Join us from Term 3 in 2024, in a supported self-determined environment, where your little learner will get a head start on the things that make their heart sing!

The centre sought to set itself apart from the stereo typical suburban typology of a child care centre. Childcare centres have typically been represented by a single storey-built form setback from the street by an open carpark and play structures. As such, the development utilises the unique opportunity a corner site has to offer and makes a clear statement as a multi-storey childcare facility.The highly articulated façade that layers screened elements and greenery not only creates visual interest from the street, but also enables an acoustic and privacy buffer for facility occupants.

The sinuous nature of the overall design removes hard edges and encourages a continuous interpretation of space.A void through the centre of the facility facing north allows natural light and ventilation to penetrate deep into all classrooms to ensure a comfortable environment is maintained. A spiral ramp wraps around the central void as both a means of access and a play structure to allow children the opportunity to experience dynamic play through the vertical realm.These features in combination enable the outdoor room to be perceived as a continuous, unified realm.
