Have you found the ideal new site and want to know if it is suitable for a new childcare centre? We can undertake a feasibility assessment to review whether it’s suitable for childcare and what the likely consenting and licensing issues would be. At this stage we can identify the potential licence size of the centre.
As part of this service, we prepare draft plans showing the size of the building, play areas and car parking. This allows you to identify key development matters very early on and gives you the confidence to make informed decisions about the purchase of the site.
If you already own an ECE centre, we’ll help you determine whether the license size could be increased and whether additional service hours could be allowed. Our team is experienced in assessing existing centres and determining whether there are opportunities to gain efficiencies in indoor and outdoor play and parking area. We provide full design and consenting solutions to extend existing centres where opportunities have been found.
After identifying the site and assessing possible child numbers, we were able to share the Orewa Bright Sparks Childcare Centre development project with our database of developers. Once partnered, we put together the project team and progressed the resource consent through council on a non-notified basis.
