School Street Childcare
Type: Childcare and Community Facility
Status: Completed 2014
Client: School St. & Thomas Court Bawn Facility Resource Centre LTD
The childcare facility will provide both full session daycare for the pre-school children and after-school care for the 6-12 year olds. The incentive for the project was to give young mothers the opportunity of returning to the workforce.
The ground floor of the building is envisaged as the pre-school level. Classrooms are organised around external play areas with direct access to the outside spaces. The first floor accommodates older children and the childcare management with the large multi-functional ‘after-schools area’ serving as a community room in the evenings.
A spine of service accommodation runs along the boundary wall to the existing school building.
