New Childhood and Family Learning Centres (CFLC) at Waratah Wynyard and East Tamar will be designed by Launceston architectural firms, Tasmanian Education Minister Jeremy Rockliff announced recently. 

 

Jaws Architects will design the Waratah Wynyard CFLC and Cumulus Studio has been appointed to design the East Tamar CFLC. 

 

CFLCs, Mr Rockliff explained, are “a proven way of supporting families and carers in the early years of a child’s life in communities where we can make the most difference”.

 

Tasmania has a strong focus on investing in the first 1000 days of a child’s life, understanding the value of this period in “setting children up for the brightest future possible, especially for those who are disadvantaged or vulnerable”.

 

A total investment of $28 million has been committed to deliver new CFLCs for Waratah Wynyard, East Tamar, Sorell, Kingborough, Glenorchy and West Ulverstone. The Government’s original commitment of $21 million was boosted with an additional $7 million in order to fast-track the CFCLs to drive economic growth and create jobs by continuing to support our learners and the Tasmanian economy through projects such as these, Mr Rockliff said.

 

Community engagement for new CFLCs for Kingborough, Glenorchy and West Ulverstone is currently underway until 18 September, 2020, with more information available here.
