What are modular kindergarten buildings?
From 2023, Free Kinder will be available for all 3 and 4-year-old children at participating services across Victoria. Over this decade the number of free kinder hours for 3 and 4-year-olds will grow significantly, and we’re making sure there are enough kindergarten places to meet demand.
We’re doing this by expanding and upgrading kindergartens across the state and building new ones where they’re needed. One way we’re doing this is by using modular buildings.
We construct them in a factory, in sections known as ‘modules’. Builders then assemble them onsite and connect them to utilities. Once assembled, builders complete the outdoor learning and play areas and landscaping.
Architects have designed 3 templated floorplans to suit the needs of most kindergartens.
By making the modules offsite, there is less disruption for kindergartens and their communities. Children can get access to their new high-quality learning environments more quickly than a traditional build. Construction time, costs and safety risks are reduced.
Grants for a modular kindergarten can fund a templated one-, two- or three-room kindergarten building and outdoor learning area(s). A carpark may also be included, but is dependent on space and considered on a case-by-case basis.
