New Leaf Early Learning Centre provides a unique childcare environment for babies and children aged from 6 weeks to school age with the capacity of 75 spaces for children to learn, grow and explore. Designed with an environmental background New Leaf is an educational space for children to develop within state of the art surroundings, including free flowing educational areas, high ceilings which create natural ventilation and one of the Sunshine Coast’s most sustainable playgrounds.
Backing onto native bushland of Alexandra Headland, New Leaf’s playground has been landscaped and designed with sculptures and play equipment derived from the trees which were originally felled on site. These include the stepper logs, dragonfly seat and log maze which all create a sense of curiosity and creativity. A uniquely designed outdoor area includes the fenced herb and fruit garden which includes a work bench that creates collaboration for children, educators and parents. Capturing the importance of appreciating nature and exploring the outdoors at an early age were the key factors in the design of the center.
