Hi all,
As many of you may be aware there is a group of people in Glenorchy working towards possibly building a new early childhood education centre in Glenorchy to meet the growing needs of our rapidly expanding community. We are currently in the process of getting a feasibility study completed but one of the biggest hurdles to getting funding will be showing other uses/benefits to the wider community outside of the ECE.
So my question to the rest of the community is… if we were to get the money to build a new facility on the land where the playgroup is currently, what could we incorporate into the build to make it useful for other groups/purposes?
Ideas so far include:
-playgroup room
-After school care
-kids holiday programme's
-commercial kitchen for community fundraising/hire out/cooking classes
-energy production/support for pool
-wellness/health room for under 5s
-Gym/activity room
-youth centre/evenings?
-educational vegetable garden

So if you have any ideas please let us know: email or call/txt Christina 021655735
