Early Childhood Centre

Parnell Trust has added a third early childhood centre in St Johns, at 50 Strong Street, and renamed it St Johns Early Childhood Centre. As new owners, Parnell Trust's experienced team is completing plans for changes and renovations to the centre. These are scheduled to be completed in time for the new year.

The new centre is located close to main arterial routes and provides quality care, great teacher ratios, Gold Star Healthy Heart meals, light-filled rooms and a huge outdoor play area - soon to include vegetable gardens.
