Abacus to open its doors to all

With a new 10-year lease in place, Abacus Child Care and Education Centre will be opening its doors to all.

Communities@Work is excited to announce that we have secured a 10-year lease at our Abacus Child Care and Education Centre, with an option to extend for a further five years. 

Located at the Treasury building right in the Parliamentary Triangle, Abacus Child Care and Education Centre has previously only been available to families who work at the Finance and Treasury buildings. With our new lease, the centre will now be opening its doors for everyone.

Following this new leasing agreement, there will be significant refurbishment happening within the centre. “We will create new open plan spaces and improve the playgrounds, ensuring both children and educators have an environment that inspires learning, creativity, imagination and play,” said Lorcan Murphy, CEO of Communities@Work.

“The new lease and renovations planned for Abacus Child Care and Education Centre strengthens the children’s services we are able to offer and our capacity to deliver quality child care and education with excellent facilities – right in the heart of Canberra.”

Communities@Work is Canberra’s largest sustainable social enterprise.  It is a leading provider of Children’s Services, operating 13 Early Education and Care centres, 17 out of school hours care programs, a Family Day Care scheme with over 106 educators and is also a Registered Training Organisation (RTO88148) which serves the whole sector.
