Eden Academy has submitted a proposal for a new childcare centre, Bellbowrie’s fifth, to be built at 117 Kangaroo Gully Road.
The proposed development is for a 736-sqm two-storey childcare centre on a 2,014-sqm land that will have a maximum capacity of 100 children. The site is situated next to Moggill State School with frontage to Kangaroo Gully Road. A residential building currently occupying the site will be demolished to give way to the new development.
There will be six dedicated activity rooms and two outdoor play areas, one on each level. There will be a reception area, amenities, plus service and staff areas as well.
Meanwhile, the proposed development will be complemented by a generous landscaped garden, mostly at the existing ground level, and will cover an area totaling 467 square metres or about 23.2% of the development site.
The childcare centre will be just under 9.5 metres in height and will have a total gross floor area of 736 square metres (483 sqm at the ground floor and 253 sqm at the upper floor). Eden Academy proposes to provide 20 car parking spaces, which will include 12 staff and eight visitor spaces (includes one shared visitor / van space and one slot for disability access).

Access to the site will be provided via a new 650-m wide driveway crossover to Kangaroo Gully Road. Pedestrian access is via a pathway along the Kangaroo Gully Road frontage extending to the childcare centre’s entrance.
According to the planners at Property Projects Australia, the On Architecture’s designed proposed childcare centre incorporates “human-scale elements, varying materials and te4xture, residential character design elements and subtropical landscaping.”
The developer proposes the childcare centre’s hours of operation to be from 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. and to be operated by 17 staff members.
Five other Eden Academy locations in Brisbane are currently being developed including Moorooka, Holland Park, and Riverhills. Whilst Eden Academy Corinda, Middle Park, and Bardon are now open.
