Local contractor appointed to build new Red Cliffs Early Years Hub

CPM Building Contractors have been announced as having won the tender to construct the Red Cliffs Early Years Hub in Mildura, Victoria. 


The construction of the Hub is a major project which brings all Red Cliffs’ early years services under the one roof, with work scheduled to start in January 2024. 


This exciting project will see the existing kindergarten and Maternal and Child Health (MCH) buildings replaced with a modern facility to meet the demand of the growing Red Cliffs community, and will include four kindergarten rooms which will allow twice as many local children to attend kindergarten programs in Red Cliffs. 


It will also house MCH and allied health consulting rooms, Toy Library facilities, a multi-use community space, a breastfeeding room and large foyer area.


The Red Cliffs Kindergarten, Red Cliffs Toy Library and Red Cliffs Maternal and Child Health Service will move from their current Guava Street site at the end of this year. Suitable, temporary locations have been arranged through positive partnerships with different groups and agencies to ensure that Red Cliffs families will continue to have access to these important services throughout the duration of the build.


The Red Cliffs Kindergarten will operate from the Red Cliffs Primary School’s Murray Avenue campus from the start of the 2024 school year.


Two relocatable modular buildings will be installed at the school along with a dedicated outdoor play area to accommodate the kindergarten program.


Maternal and Child Health Services will be delivered out of the Red Cliffs Library in Jamieson Avenue and the Red Cliffs Toy Library will operate from the nearby Civic Centre in Jamieson Avenue.


Each service provider will communicate specific details about their move, including commencement dates for the new locations, directly with their client-base, to ensure all families are well-informed about these changes.


Mildura Mayor Liam Wood acknowledged the cooperation of all services involved including the Y Kinders, Department of Education, Toy Library volunteers and Council’s Maternal and Child Health and Library teams.


Council secured $6 million through the Victorian Government’s Building Blocks Capacity Integrated Children’s Centre grant program to help fund the project.
