Developing a Childcare Centre

Child Care Centres provide environments where children’s development is positively fostered; are functionally and economically viable, attractive and sympathetic to the streetscape, appropriate for the surrounding built, natural and social environments, have a minimum adverse impact of surrounding areas and are environments where children’s development is positively fostered.

To achieve these outcomes, there are many rules, guidelines and regulations that need to be considered when developing a childcare centre and obtaining the relevant approvals requires consideration of a number of different factors. The different levels of government implement overarching policies and legislation which govern child care. However, this often results in several layers of regulations and requirements which can be difficult to understand and navigate.

Habitat can assist in navigating this complexity and advise how to understand the various legislative and regulatory planning requirements that exist.

We work with our clients to advise on the best pathway to achieve the approvals you need, whether that is engaging specialist consultants, or identifying other risks whilst providing you with the confidence required to maximise the potential of your project and ensuring a positive development outcome.

Our team has the knowledge and expertise to assist you in navigating the planning system and securing the approvals you need. For further information on please contact or our team using the enquiry form below, email or phone (02) 6021 0662.
