$5.9 million worth facility of Botanic Ridge Family and Community centre in the ground of Botanic Ridge Primary School opened its doors for the first time this week. The new centre that is set to welcome kindergarten children is jointly funded by the state government and the city of Casey.
The Centre has 2 kindergarten playroom for the four-year-old kid, 2 Consultation rooms for Maternal and child health and a for-hire large multi-purpose community room. There are also plans for a new sports reserve to be constructed south of the primary school site that will cater for soccer and cricket. With the project currently in the design phase, it is anticipated that construction will start in the next 4 years.
The location of the new Family and Community Centre is very ideal because this can make a smooth transition from kindergarten to school and parents will have a single drop-off point for their preschoolers, school-aged children and those attending the centre.
