Within different parts of the building, there is a high-tech specialist sensory zone and games room. On the first floor, another reconfigured open plan room that is used for a variety of activities such as computer classes/IT training or teaching seminars.
A counselling room is also included within the layout to provide a calming and relaxing environment for the children. Still, those needing to burn off some energy there is a secure outdoor play area that includes both play equipment and sensory garden.
In meeting the initial brief, a warm, open, centrally located reception facility was incorporated off a newly integrated entrance lobby with a new welcome counter, soft seating and information wall. This space led in to the large double-height main hall that will be the hub and focus of the daily operations within the building.
The centre is now home to newly formed women’s groups, support sessions, social groups, parent and toddler groups, and the opportunity for birthday party rentals.
