Accessible ECEC service core of new Renmark project
An accessible early childhood education and care (ECEC) service will be at the heart of a project in the South Australian town of Remark. The project will be built on empty land at the corner of Eighteenth and Para streets in Renmark.
The project will have a focus on NDIS services, including eight standalone dwellings for eligible NDIS recipients. By constructing the project the Renmark Paringa Council hopes it will attract more permanent health professionals to the region.
As well as the 100-place ECEC service, the development will offer a 33-room allied health clinic and eight accessible dwellings for eligible NDIS recipients. The ECEC service will cater to children with a disability and the allied health centre will be accessible for those living in the independent dwellings.
A cafe, kinder gym, hydrotherapy pool and common garden areas will also be included in the development, being led by Adelaide-based Evergreen Built. Construction is expected to begin in September, creating 30 local employment opportunities.
