The new Early Childhood Centre for Shearwater, the Mullumbimby Steiner School, comprising of two Kindergartens and two Preschool buildings was completed in 2017 ready for the new school year. The site was undeveloped land adjacent to the Primary School established in 1995 with the Masterplanning by BJA.
Each building includes large north facing verandahs provide for protected outdoor activities in shade or during sub-tropical rain in summer and in the warm sun during winter months.
Hardwood timbers have been sourced locally and nontoxic colourful materials have been used throughout the inside. Landscape planting has now established providing protection and seasonal growth and colour augmenting a wonderful learning environment.
