According to the Needs Assessment report prepared by Business Geographics, there are five long daycare centres in the catchment area, offering a total of 402 places, with an average occupancy rate of 84.58 per cent.

Whilst the supply is meeting current demand, the report said that the major catchment could still support an additional 50 to 80 places up to 2026.

“In conclusion, a new purpose-built childcare centre on BraunStreet at Deagon would improve local childcare choice and amenity and support the day to day needs of the immediate residential community. The subject site is approprite for the proposed use and would be expected to represent an attractive alternative in this market.” – Business Geographics

The proposed operating hours will be to operate from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Mondays to Fridays.
