Upgrades approved for kindergarten and community facilities at Carrums Rene Anderson Complex
2 February 2018
Carrum children will soon be enjoying improved kindergarten facilities after Kingston Council appointed a builder to complete a $720,000 upgrade at the Rene Anderson Complex building.
Kingston Mayor Steve Staikos said the upgrades to the much-loved community facility will have longlasting benefits for local families and the many community groups that use the site.
“The kindergarten has served generations of local families and these upgrades will ensure it continues to do so for many years to come,” Cr Staikos said.
Cr Staikos said the refurbishment will also provide improved facilities for a wide range of community groups that use the centre.
“The Rene Anderson Complex is well used by a whole host of local groups including the girl guides, play groups, Zumba classes, dog training and more,” Cr Staikos said.
“Council is proud to invest in upgrading local facilities that help bring people together and create a strong, connected community.”
Construction is expected to commence in mid-2018 and Council aims to complete the work in time for the start of term three.
During the works the kindergarten will be temporarily accommodated at the neighbouring Carrum Family and Children Centre.
