SDN Milperra opened on 30 April 2012 and provides care for up to 60 children aged from birth to five years. The centre is uniquely located within the grounds of Milperra Public school. The Federal Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations provided funding for the build of SDN Milperra through the Australian government early learning and care centre capital works program.
The Milperra Centre was built to a very tight budget and on a very tight timeframe. The design originally featured high raked ceilings to the playrooms and a softly coloured polycarbonate and glazed curtain wall with large bi-fold doors opening onto the landscaped outdoor play providing lots of natural ambient lighting while still complying with BCA section J. The playrooms are arranged like fingers from the central multi purpose space, stretching out into the outdoor play area on 3 sides to maximise the outdoor indoor relationship.
