Millie's House Early Learning Centre is opening in Christchurch in June 2019 in the wonderful old Magistrates Court beside the River Avon.
The Magistrates Court is a big building, which we have designed to create small ‘home rooms’ for children’s comfort, peace and security. Also, bigger spaces for groups to join together and get busy, get learning and have fun. All spaces flow to the outdoors through some careful planning and consultation with the Ministry of Education.
The outdoor space is large, beautiful and textured. How many centres do you know that have a river running past it and overlook a park? It will be a wonderful place for children to sit and talk on a hill, enjoy the play structures, wallow in sand and invent ideas. And, with a short stroll down the road to the award winning Margaret Mahy Playground- the Southern Hemisphere’s biggest playground- these children will possibly have the best outdoor play opportunities in the country!
