Work has started on the construction of a new multi-use Young Person’s Centre in Lavenham, Suffolk.

A groundbreaking ceremony took place on Tuesday 28th March to mark the occasion with Martin Weaver (Chairman of Lavenham Community Council), Katherine Eves (pre-school manager), Carroll Reeve (Chairman of Lavenham Parish Council),  and local supporters in attendance.

When finished the carbon efficient timber-framed building will have capacity for 48 pupils and will include a bright and spacious purpose-built play space, staff room, office space and a separate ‘quiet room’ to support children with special education needs.  A large outdoor play area is also being created using natural resources to enhance the children’s learning and development.

Katherine Eves, pre-school manager said “We are so excited to be providing the families of Lavenham, and surrounding areas, with a new care and educational, early year’s environment.  A huge thanks to everyone in the local community who has supported us with this project as we look to extend, and build on, the excellent care we already provide.”

This new pre-school and young person’s centre will provide the ideal learning environment in which young children can thrive and achieve their full potential.  Furthermore, it will offer vital childcare places that will greatly benefit working families.

We are pleased to offer schools, such as Lavenham pre-school, a quick, cost effective and high quality permanent solution as demand for new, modern classroom and play spaces increase.
