Chisholm Catholic Child Care is one of the final stages in QOH’s Educational masterplan for the area. The centre will care for 72 children while being able to accommodate 80.
With an ‘L’ shaped plan with staff at the center, a 4m wide verandah provides covered circulation for the two wings catering for the younger and older children separately.
Landscaping, by OHD, has been developed to reflect natural elements as a dry river bed courses through the adventure playground with a variety of textures and surfaces providing opportunities for play and engagement.
The adjoining primary school playground will enable children to have safe and secure excursion options and encourage integration with older siblings and children.
Encompassing a holistic approach to learning, the building shell offers a progressive space for carers and children to develop under the one umbrella for the future.
