Joy Burch has announced the opening of a new childcare centre in Flynn:

ACT Minister for Community Services Joy Burch said the new Alkira Childcare Centre is part of the ACT Government’s $8 million redevelopment of the former Flynn Primary School site.

“The new childcare centre has the capacity for 115 children and it has effectively filled that capacity already,” Ms Burch said.

“Enrolments in the centre, largely by families living in the suburb of Flynn, have been so popular that even at the start date there are only four spots left on Mondays and Fridays.”

UPDATE: This addendum in from Joy Burch’s office:

The centre’s new name is Flynn Early Childhood Education Centre, not Alkira. It is the amalgamation of the Alkira Community Childcare Centre and Gumnut Place Childcare, which both had to vacate from their former premises.

wow that’s a lot of money spent for the little kiddies. Does that figure also include the upgrade of Cooinda Cottage?

It’s not a new centre actually… its the Alkira Childcare Centre from Charnwood that relocated to Flynn.
