Mudgeeraba childcare transformed as longstanding centre gets makeover

MUDGEERABA, Queensland, June XX, 2018: Global Sky Group has invested in Mudgeeraba’s future, with the company announcing the makeover of a longstanding childcare centre as part of its commitment to the local community.
Celebrated with a special opening event on June 16, Mudgeeraba Early Childhood Centre has undergone a transformation following a significant investment by Tokyo-based Global Sky in upgrading the centre’s facilities.
The works by local contractors included renovations to all rooms, kitchen and yard, with the installation of new fencing, playground equipment, bike track, sandpit, slides, swings and AstroTurf, ensuring children and educators at the much-loved centre have the latest in childcare facilities.
Global Sky Group’s Managing Director, Ko Nagata said the modernisation of the childcare centre reflected the company’s focus on providing the highest possible quality of care.
“Global Sky is committed to quality childcare, including obtaining the highest possible ratings for our centres under the Australian Government’s National Quality Standard,” Mr Nagata said.
“Our investment in the Mudgeeraba centre reflects this goal and we are working hard to ensure all our Gold Coast and other childcare centres across Australia deliver the educational standards the community needs and deserves.”
Mudgeeraba Early Childhood Centre director, Alisha Young, described the modernisation process as transformative for the centre.
“The makeover has given the centre a new lease of life after some 30 years of operations. There are now many more stimulating challenges for the children and much more space for them to run, play and make their own choices for the benefit of their learning,” Ms Young said.
“With our longstanding ties to the community and long-serving staff, there’s a really homely feeling here and it shows how loving our centre can be.”
The improved facilities have added to the centre’s vision of educational excellence, with its unique programs including Japanese language lessons by a Japanese educator and play-based learning activities, such as Future Champs, Happy Feet and Little Big Sports.
The centre’s transformation follows Global Sky’s successful redevelopments of its other Gold Coast childcare centres, comprising the Robina Town Child Care Centre and the Southport Child Care Centre.
“Our first childcare investments in Australia were in the Gold Coast, our home away from home, which is seeing increasing demand for childcare as part of its population growth,” Mr Nagata said.
“With our ties with Queensland now including education, food and beverage and business facilities, we look forward to further strengthening our relationship with the Sunshine State as part of our vision of connecting the world for a brighter future.”

Located at 148 Wallandra Rd, Tallai the Mudgeeraba Early Childhood Centre caters for children ranging from infants to six-year-olds. It is open weekdays from 6.30am to 6.30pm for the benefit of the local community. For more information on the centre,
