Kindergarten on a School Site
About the project
We built a new kindergarten at Newhaven Primary School.
This 2-room centre provides 66 kindergarten places and opens 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 kindergarten was built using modular 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.
