New Sure Start children's centre

This project stems from the government led Sure Start initiative aimed at giving every child the best possible start in life by offering a broad range of services focusing on Family Health, Early Years Care and Education and Improved Well Being Programmes to children aged 4 and under.

The new childen’s centre incorporated a nursery and classrooms with external soft play area ensuring an effective service hub that enabled children and their families to receive seamless integrated services.

This sustainable split level building has been designed to sit comfortably within the steep sloping site and integrate well within the natural surroundings.
