This project, in the southern Tasmanian rural township of Geeveston known for its apple and forestry industries, sees the reuse of a set of 1950’s weatherboard buildings. The centre provides education for birth-5 years, focused around family interactions, and supporting health services in an environment both homely and stimulating.
Federally-funded through the Indigenous Early Childhood Development National Partnership Agreement, the purpose of the Child and Family Centres is to improve the learning and care, and health and well-being of Tasmania’s very young children by supporting parents and enhancing accessibility of services in the local community.
The Geeveston Child and Family Centre has received a number of architecture and design awards. View the full list here.
