Keola Homes commissioned to build NZ’s largest childcare centre

Update: See the completed project here

Earlier in 2013, Keola won an Award for building a childcare centre… and now we’ve been commissioned to build what will be largest childcare centre in all of New Zealand!

Chrysalis Childcare will be a state-of-the-art, architecturally-designed childcare centre located in Avondale.

Chrysalis is a ground breaking, unique concept in early childcare education, featuring never-seen-before concepts such as:

  • An innovative and spacious Pasifica village and Kiwi play-garden. This has more than double the outdoor area required by Government standards.
  • A newly invented and award-winning online learning visualisation tool for each child.
  • An architecturally-designed magical transformation into an inspiring and imaginative place for children, teachers and parents!

You can read more about Chrysalis Childcare on their website.

We will commence construction work in late 2013, for an opening in Spring 2014.

Pre-enrolments are already underway, so the Keola team will be working really hard and smart to meet the client’s deadline!
