Tunstall Square Kindergarten welcomes families back following major expansion

Tunstall Square Kindergarten educators and leaders have welcomed children and families back in Term Two following the completion of major expansion works in April. 


A $1.4 million project has brought a number of new features and improvements to the site, making the space more accessible and dynamic for children. 


The kindergarten now includes a second room which can accommodate an additional 52 children, and a ramp has been added to the entrance to improve accessibility. 


A number of landscaping features have been added to the outdoor space, including a multi-use synthetic grass play zone with a soft fall rubber undersurface, water pump, and creek water play area. 


Along with Kindergarten improvements, the entrance way to the neighbouring Maternal and Child Health Centre has also received minor improvements.


The upgrade focused on sustainable features, including solar PV systems, energy efficiency, passive design features, and eco-friendly, sustainable material specifications. 


The second stage of improvement works is planned to begin mid-year. This will involve constructing a new pedestrian path link from Russell Crescent into St. Clems Reserve and upgrading the Maternal Child Health Centre car park. 


The project has been delivered in partnership with the Victorian State Government, which contributed $744,700 to the project, and the Kindergarten.
