Canberra Region - coming soon
AEIOU Foundation is thrilled to establish a service in Canberra for families across the greater Canberra region. This state-of-the-art centre will support around 40 children each year, and will also have capacity for research and training. The Canberra region centre will be located in Garran, ACT.
Children are supported to achieve their individual development goals in small group settings, by a specialist team comprised of Speech Pathologists, Occupational Therapists, Behavioural Therapists and Early Childhood Educators. We'd love to hear from people interested in joining the team – if you're a Canberra local and have qualifications in these areas, please get in touch.
We are taking interest in enrolments now, for children who are aged between 2 and 6 years of age. Construction is underway, with an expected opening date of mid-2021.
The centre is made possible due to the partnership and support of the John James Foundation, who are not only funding the construction of the facility but also developing, project managing and retaining the building. This service will form part of the broader John James Village precinct, and will facilitate the provision of specialist education and development for young children and their families. The AEIOU centre in Canberra consolidates the John James Foundation's commitment to strengthening health outcomes in the community.
The facility is designed to include sustainable building elements, and will include building elements such as a 33KwH solar energy system with battery storage to generate green energy and to provide AEIOU with a passive income from distributing surplus energy production back to the main energy grid supply.
