East Dunbartonshire nursery drive in full swing
November 15 2019
Four Early Years Centres across East Dunbartonshire have taken another step toward delivery with funding secured for new facilities in Milngavie, Bearsden and Kirkintilloch, with Holmes Miller Architects handling the design of each.
The Bearsden Centre will sit alongside Brookwood Library and offer a full-height ‘experience space’ defined by translucent sheets and slatted timber cladding to permit a play of sunlight and shadow.
At Kirkintilloch, a similar model will be employed at Southbank Road including a sheltered outdoor play space incorporating natural features such as grass, woodland and feature play spaces together with a discovery garden.
In Milngavie, the planned nursery will follow a similar approach and sit opposite the current health centre at the former St Joseph’s Primary School and provide 87 places for children aged between two and five.
In a statement Hub West Scotland wrote: “We are pleased to announce the significant milestone of financial close of the four early years projects we are delivering in partnership with East Dunbartonshire Council. These innovatively designed projects are on-site and we look forward to delivering high-quality facilities on programme.”
All nurseries follow a reference design prioritising ‘experience-based’ play spaces and ‘stimulating’ outdoor landscapes.
