Surfers child­care all go

Weekend Gold Coast Bulletin - - BUSINESS -

COUN­CIL has given the green light of ap­proval for a child­care cen­tre to open at Chevron Re­nais­sance Shop­ping Cen­tre, the first fa­cil­ity of its kind to ser­vice the heart of Surfers Par­adise.

Ex­pected to be launched in 2018, de­vel­op­ment ap­proval for the new child­care cen­tre marks the con­tin­u­a­tion of Chevron Re­nais­sance own­ers Pre­ci­sion Group’s re­vi­tal­i­sa­tion of the precinct.

The new fa­cil­ity, to be op­er­ated by Rise Early Learn­ing, will have ca­pac­ity for 88 chil­dren and housed within an ex­pan­sive re­pur­posed floor space on the sec­ond level of the CBD com­plex, com­pris­ing an in­ter­nal area of 669sq m and ad­join­ing out­door rooftop ter­race of 663sq m.

“Our vi­sion is to cre­ate an early learn­ing en­vi­ron­ment that will be an oa­sis for chil­dren and their fam­i­lies, right in the heart of Surfers Par­adise,” Rise Early Learn­ing Cen­tre manger Mel Comer­ford said.

Chevron Re­nais­sance Cen­tre man­ager Ger­ard Coorey said the new fa­cil­ity would pro­vide an in­no­va­tive child­care so­lu­tion in the heart of the Gold Coast.

“There are cur­rently more than 6000 peo­ple work­ing in Surfers Par­adise, along with a thriv­ing res­i­den­tial pop­u­la­tion, but un­til now the precinct has been lack­ing in a qual­ity child­care so­lu­tion,” Mr Coorey said.
