Important update – Southern Yorke Peninsula Childcare Centre, Minlaton
The new Southern Yorke Peninsula Childcare Centre, the “Minlaton Family Centre”, is still expected to open for week 1, term 1, 2024, but parents are advised this may be affected by unforeseen construction delays.
Yorke Peninsula Council and operator Yorke Peninsula Learning & Care are doing everything possible to have the facility open for week 1, starting 30 January, in consultation with the building contractor.
If opening is delayed and parents urgently require care for the early part of term 1, they are encouraged to speak with Yorke Peninsula Learning & Care about using the Maitland Family Centre if this is a suitable temporary option for them.
Yorke Peninsula Council apologises for any inconvenience that may be caused if this becomes necessary and reiterates that this is a back-up option only, so that parents can be prepared, as all parties involved remain committed to opening the Minlaton Family Centre on 30 January.
The building delays have been caused by two issues. The first was unexpected groundwater; the second is the arrival of some playground equipment that remains on order.
Further updates will be provided as soon as possible. We appreciate all understanding and support as the childcare centre nears this major milestone.
