Work has started on the childcare centre in the Epiq estate which is expected to open its doors early next year. Owners say the centre will offer a fun-packed program including music lessons, language classes, STEM activities and sports training focussed on discovering and nurturing children’s abilities and interests.
The centre will cater for up to 98 children aged from six weeks to five years, with dedicated activity rooms and a large outdoor play area.
Harmony Early Learning is owned and managed by Chris and Gabrielle Giufre, who have more than 17 years experience in the childcare sector across Australia and New Zealand.
Mrs Giufre says Epiq Lennox Head was chosen as the location for the latest Harmony Early Learning centre due to its community atmosphere.
‘Lennox Head has always been known for being family friendly, and with the arrival of new communities like Epiq, it’s becoming increasingly popular with parents who want to raise their children in a coastal village environment,’ she said.
‘The centre will have six activity rooms, a commercial grade kitchen for food preparation and industry-leading education resources which are used to support all of the extra-curricular classes we offer at no extra cost.
‘The music, arts, language and sports programs we run are all designed to deliver educational outcomes but, most importantly, they are fun and encourage holistic development to get kids ready for the rewards and challenges of life.’
Clarence Property managing director Peter Fahey says the centre will be a welcome addition to Epiq Lennox Head.
Facilities in the new shopping precinct include sporting fields, parks and a Woolworths-anchored shopping village, which is expected to open in mid 2020.
