CHILDCARE DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS
NTC Architects believes that a successful childcare facility is where all levels of stakeholders are considered during the design process; the client, service provider, facility staff, and children.
Our clients are vital to our design process. With continuous collaboration and communication we are able to define the brief, gather accurate information and assist our clients in understanding design solutions, problems and opportunities. Through the client, we understand budget restraints, brief requirements and the vision, including the facility’s educational practice, staffing arrangements, physical environment, and other specialist requirements.
THE SERVICE PROVIDER
NTC Architects provide a comprehensive service. We understand the necessity to acquire a service approval prior to operating as an Early Childhood Learning Facility. NTC Architects assists in providing architectural drawings and area schedules required for a Planning Permit and application for Service Approval for Centre-Based Care, allowing for a smooth transition from construction to facility occupancy.
THE FACILITY STAFF
The success of a childcare facility is highly dependant on the quality of staff. In the design process we consider and communicate with the facility staff to understand their needs. We strive to improve their workplace by creating quality spaces that enrich their experience as staff members.
NTC Architects believe in the impact of quality learning spaces in the positive physiological growth of children. Childcare facilities are first and foremost designed for the wellbeing of the child, their safety
and their physical requirements. We abide by the National Quality Standard (NQS) regulations and BCA to ensure that all aspect of designs are compliant and have suitable indoor and outdoor spaces for children.
