New childcare centre planned for Paraburdoo

The Paraburdoo Childcare Centre is nearing the lockup milestone of the project with the installation of external wall cladding, windows and external doors currently in progress.  Once this has been achieved the internal fit out will commence making the premises safe and attractive for the staff, children and their families.

Landscaping to play areas and the external surrounds will commence in May and the construction of the facility is on track to achieve full practical completion in quarter 3, 2016.

Together with Rio Tinto, the Shire is currently working through the process to engage a provider to operate the purpose built facility, with the final step then to achieve full licensing under the guidelines of the regulator.

The centre will provide long day care, occasional care and out of school care to the children of Paraburdoo.

The Paraburdoo Childcare Centre is made possible by the State Government’s Royalties for Regions Pilbara Cities program, Rio Tinto and the Shire of Ashburton.
