Ready to Open!

After weeks of cleaning, sorting, labelling, remodelling and lot's of sweat - it's very hot here - we are ready to open on Monday morning 22 June. Our first child will arrive early that morning, after travelling all night on the train and the others will arrive gradually over the next couple of weeks.

We have hired 10 staff as Carers and they underwent their training last Thursday and Friday, so they are ready to start their shifts on Monday morning. Their uniform is the same style of apron as the staff in the other units, but a different pattern to distinguish the units from each other.

We are really pleased with how the rooms have come together and we are grateful to all those who have donated funding or items to make this unit happen.

We really look forward to seeing the children's lives change as a result of this.
