Grenfell Early Years Consultation - The site
A new home for Grenfell Early Years
The Ilys Booker Centre site offers many opportunities. Located on the ground floor of Lower Clarendon Walk the centre has always been used for childcare provision. Upgrading the centre will bring the facilities up to the standard needed for delivering childcare in the 21st century.
The building extension will provide the nursery with designated flexible playrooms and support facilities inside. Improvements to the outdoor play area will provide colour, fun and access to nature, creating a safe environment for the children to explore and learn.
The outdoor play area will be extended to incorporate the south end of the area to the front of Clarendon Walk. This will provide a wide range of outdoor play spaces for the children including an ecology zone, play equipment and an outdoor learning space. We recognise that the site is overlooked by the adjacent flats and we will develop the design to offer visual protection for the children, while managing the potential of construction and children’s noise impacting on the residents.
