Croydon Park Early Learning Centre
- Commercial - Education
- Lump Sum
An old office space/workshop, located in West Croydon, has been refurbished into a single-storey Early Learning Centre.
The existing external brick facade was structurally modified to make way for large windows to open up the space and provide natural light. The design and subsequent construction was specific as to the teaching methodologies and learning environments incorporating the Reggio Emilia philosophy. Cook Building worked closely with the Client to understand and ensure these end user-requirements were delivered.
Specifically, the build includes:
- A large reception area, and associated security requirements
- A commercial kitchen area and associated plumbing infrastructure upgrade back to mains
- 5 separate child bathrooms and 2 staff bathrooms, including change rooms
- Multiple separate purpose learning spaces specifically designed for different age groups
- 1000m2 playground area with separated zones specific for certain age groups
