The Tatura Children’s Centre has once again improved its facilities.December 3, 2013 6:00pm
TCC director Sheree Carver said fundraising efforts had enabled TCC to develop an outdoor preschool yard which was unique, natural and spacious.
She said elements of the new yard included giant boulders, native trees and fruit trees, vegetable and herb gardens, a giant toy box and accompanying sand pit, a hill slide, a decking area under a beautiful tree, a dry creek bed and a Bali hut.
‘‘The variety of materials is now enabling children to have the opportunity to explore nature through safe and creative play,’’ Ms Carver said.
‘‘I am very proud of this development. In the 10 years I have been at TCC this is our most satisfying project.’’
Ms Carver said the three-year-old and four-year-old children had always had to share a yard, and now to see each room having their own outdoor play spaces ‘‘is just thrilling’’.
She said the unused grassed area was now a functional space for the children to enjoy daily.
‘‘PJM Landscape and Gardening were just brilliant,’’ Ms Carver said.
“They shared the same vision us as and wanted to make sure a yard could be used productively for years to come.’’
Tatura Children’s Centre is now taking enrolments for 2014, and has vacancies in both three-year-old and four-year-old long day care.
