Murrindal Family Centre

Civic

This childcare centre in Rowville required a new preschool room and a renovation and update of existing buildings.

Modern childcare design requires the integration of regulatory and licensing requirements, as well as design that supports the early childhood curriculum, the Early Years Learning Framework.

This centre’s design focuses on three key features: a bright palate of colours; a striking feature portico providing an expansive undercover transition space for use through all seasons; and naturally lit, open plan and flexible interiors. A number of practical design considerations such as adequate and safe parking, secure access, and protected and safe play environments have also been implemented.

The centre was completed in 2014.
