Family Centres - Early Childhood Education

Family Centre
Beach Haven

In August 2011 we were delighted to get resource consent for our latest (and most ambitious) project in Beach Haven.

In November 2009 we acquired our largest site yet – 4965 square metres of mainly level land at the end of Bay Park Place in Beach Haven.

We then set about designing a modern looking building with an historical twist that could accommodate the variety of services that we wanted to be able to provide, as well as providing a visual presence giving something of a “wow” factor. We think we’ve achieved this.

The end result can be seen in the plans and elevations.

The building will be home to a 100 child early childhood education service, a sessional playgroup,  young parent unit, doctor’s surgery, pharmacy, café and three additional rooms to be used for a variety of wrap around family services that are becoming familiar in Living and learning Family Centres.

Work on this building will commence once we have raised the substantial funds necessary to pay for it.
