creating a safe place to gain the skills and confidence to move on to primary schooling

George Bowen kindergarten

our services: planning, compliance & approvals, construction documentation

location: Hope Vale Aboriginal Shire Council

size: 450sqm

completed: early 2021

A new kindergarten building for the education of the young members of Hope Vale.  A low set building was initially designed as an after-hours care centre, adjunct to the kindergarten.  Post construction the uses were changed, so the new building is re-purposed to become the new kindergarten for the township.  Simple in design, this open building provides large single level, covered spaces flowing from inside to playground.  Compliance and operational requirements are met, creating a safe place to gain the skills and confidence to move on to primary schooling.
