Kindergarten on a School Site
About the project
We are building a new kindergarten at Movelle Primary School.
This 2-room centre will provide 66 kindergarten places and will open into an outdoor learning and play space.
Having the kindergarten and school together may help local children make a smoother transition into primary school and can also make drop-off time simpler for some families.
This project shares in $283 million provided in the 2019–20 State Budget for Three-Year-Old Kindergarten funding, delivered over four years.
Construction of Movelle Kindergarten is underway.
This kindergarten is being built using modular construction, which means the bulk of the building works will take place off-site.
Builders will start to prepare the local construction site in late August and the kindergarten is planned to open for Term 1, 2023.
Kindergartens built using modular construction 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.
