Jack High Childcare Centre undergoes transformation

01/11/2017

Almost half a million dollars’ worth of renovations to transform the Jack High Childcare Centre are being completed, and will result in a refreshing and more useable space for both staff and children.
 
“These renovations mean that each age group will now have their own space to play in with peers of the same age,” said Mayor, Kevin Greene.
 
“Research has shown that children become confident and involved learners when they’re supported by an active learning environment that encourages focus and concentration, while capturing their interest and curiosity.
 
“A balance of indoor and outdoor experiences, combined with quiet and active free-play supports a child’s right to independently select experiences of their choice. This will happen more effectively in the newly designed space, as there will be areas for quiet contemplation, as well as more active areas,” said Mayor Greene.
 
Council staff involved in the design of the new rooms wanted to achieve a look that helped to create curiosity and wonder.
 
The colour palette of pale lemon, lime and teal will energise both adults and children, create harmony and balance and, importantly, give children a space that is beautiful and respectful.


Stages 1 and 2 have been completed, with alterations, new flooring and painting complete. Stage 3 painting is to be completed in early November, and more flooring is still to be laid. The project is expected to be completed by the end of November 2017.
