Manna Gum Family and Children’s Centre

Manna Gum Family & Children's Centre brings together a kindergarten, Maternal and Child Health service and the Gisborne Toy Library.  

The centre includes a two-room kindergarten and large, shared outdoor play area.

An indoor living wall and bamboo forest are a few of the attractions that have been incorporated into the centre, specifically with children in mind. 

The design is driven not only by children’s learning needs, providing lots of indoor and outdoor learning experiences, but also environmentally sustainable principles.
