Kindergarten on a School Site
About the project
We partnered with Bass Coast Shire to expand Drysdale Street Kindergarten.
We added an extra kindergarten room and maternal and child health facilities, allowing the centre to offer an extra 33 places from 2023. We also added an outdoor learning space and car park facilities.
This kindergarten was built using construction, which means the bulk of the building works took place off-site. Modular kindergartens are an efficient solution for delivering quality buildings in short timeframes. They are constructed in a factory in sections known as “modules”. These modules are delivered to the kindergarten site, where builders assemble them, connect utilities and complete outdoor areas. Constructing the modules offsite minimises disruptions to the community and kindergarten. The process also reduces the time required for a traditional build and gives children faster access to high-quality learning environments.
In the 2019–20 Budget, this project shared in $283 million allocated over four years for Three-Year-Old Kindergarten.
