Relocating and refurbishing the old school house provided the ideal solution for the Free Kindergarten Association. Large covered outdoor spaces were added, extending the usable floor area providing all weather play. This was essential as it is located high on the Kaimai range and could otherwise suffer from the strong winds and high rainfall. The interior was gutted and remodeled providing one large sunny internal space surrounded by supporting ancillary rooms. Strict health and safety provisions were adhered to while maintaining a playful and natural feel.
