Feasibility and Due Diligence

Whether you are opening your first childcare centre, expanding your brand into new areas, or you are considering optimising an existing centre, you will want to undertake detailed feasibility to the viability of your development.


Have you found an available site and want to know if it is suitable for a new childcare centre? Establish can undertake a feasibility assessment on your potential site to review whether it’s suitable for childcare and what the likely issues for resource consenting would be.  At this stage we can identify the potential licence size of the centre.

As part of this service, we have a draft plan prepared showing how the new centre would be located on the site, the size of the play areas and the number of parking spaces available. We then run this through our pre-application arrangements with the Council to get specific feedback on the proposal, allowing you to make well informed decisions on potential site purchases.


Do you already have a childcare centre and want to know if you could optimise the centre to cater for more families? We prepare feasibility reports identifying the ability to expand the centre and play areas and increasing opening hours to meet the needs of modern families. Through this work we establish the likelihood of obtaining the required consents and map out a plan to optimise your centre so that you can make well informed decisions.

Changes to regulations and District Plans often provide opportunities for existing centres to optimise their services. For example, the Auckland Unitary Plan now allows for higher noise limits from childcare centres and requires fewer car parks. Your centre may be able to cater to more families than you are currently licensed for. At Establish, we love unlocking the potential in your centre.

Establish are the industry leaders in providing comprehensive development services for the childcare sector, including site finding, due-diligence, resource consenting and complete childcare developments.
