Childcare comes to Melbourne Square

08 Jul 2020

Childcare comes to Melbourne Square Image

The operator of Southbank’s newest childcare at Melbourne Square has been appointed ahead of the new facility’s opening at Kavanagh St later this year.

As part of the completion of stage-one at the development, Melbourne Square will open its own on-site childcare facility – the Nido Early School – a subsidiary of nationally regarded provider Think Childcare.

Already taking enrolments, Nido offers 87 places across an learning space spanning 1250 sqm. And for busy parents there will be convenient undercover pick-up and drop off facilities to make life easier.

Nido will be located on level-two of the development with views over Melbourne Square’s new 3700 sqm public park, and will complement its residential and office towers by providing a much-needed learning environment right at the doorstep of residents, as well as for workers at MSQ Commercial and the local community.

The childcare centre will also be co-located within the development’s planned retail precinct, which includes new cafes and a full-line Woolworths supermarket.

The Nido collection of Early Schools for children was launched in 2014 and champions a unique approach to learning, inspired by the Reggio Emilia philosophy - a long-standing Italian education concept which fosters an environment for children where they are encouraged to create, trust, explore, discover and excel.

Expressions of interest for enrolments at the new Nido Early School are now open and the centre is expected to open following the completion of stage-one of the development in December •
