Construction is underway at Sunkids’ newest, state-of-the-art childcare facility being built within the Brisbane Technology Park.
The Brisbane Technology Park community has long awaited an on-site childcare centre, further improving the precinct amenity and work-life balance for the thousands of parents who spend their weeks at BTP. Sunkids General Manager Reyhaan Omar said the choice to open a new centre in Brisbane Technology Park came from the increased demand from parents to access quality childcare within walking distance of their workplace.
“Imagine how meaningful to the parents and children it is going to be commuting to the workplace together. Parents having the opportunity to have lunch with their child before going back to work. In this day and age, making the most of these meaningful experiences is of utmost importance. Sunkids are proud to be able to offer this to families of Brisbane Technology Park.”
Sunkids have introduced new initiatives for added convenience to working families including complimentary morning coffee, flexible sessions of care to suit parent’s work schedules, a ‘Transitioning Back to Work Program’ for new parents, and complimentary chef-prepared sit-down lunches for parents to be able to escape the office and enjoy a meaningful dining experience with their child.
Slated for a January 2021 opening, the new childcare and kindergarten at 69 Brandl Street will set a new benchmark for childcare facilities within Australia with their one-of-a-kind semi-outdoor playscape area, tipped as a ‘tropical oasis in an office park.’
The converted warehouse space will feature an Atelier Art Studio, Alfresco Dining Piazza, interior tropical forest and sandpits, free flowing creek beds, a bike track, performance stage, and interactive garden beds.
There is also a second-level Japanese-style Zen Garden featuring a bamboo forest, tranquil water features, hanging greenery, and a quiet reading sanctuary, all shaded by a large cherry blossom tree.
This unique area will be beaming with natural light and fresh air through 25 custom built skylights and multiple 4m tall bifold doors opening up to bring the outside in.
Catering to children from 6 weeks old through to school age and offering a Government-approved Kindergarten program, the 101-licence placed childcare centre provides all extra-curricular activities including sports, yoga, music and dance, all meals and snacks, nappies and wipes and more in a daily set fee.
