A new ‘eco pod’ has been opened at Squirrels Children’s Centre in Stantonbury, where MK City Council works in partnership with Wood End Infant and Pre-School.
Open Monday to Friday every week, Squirrels Children’s Centre provides a wide range of activities and services for parents, carers and families of children aged 0-5 years.
The fully insulated wooden building expands the existing centre and will provide extra space for events and activities, enabling new classes for adults and children to run from the centre. It even includes a creche.
The project was funded by the city council using money provided by developers (called ‘Section 106’ funding) which is in place to create or improve infrastructure to benefit local communities.
