Covid 19 - Impact on Hub South East operations

Forest Kindergartens

Following the success of the Leith Meanwhile Project, completed in 2018, we were invited by the City of Edinburgh Council to develop the shipping container proposal to provide an affordable solution for six new Forest Kindergartens. This is assisting the Council in meeting the Scottish Government’s Early learning and childcare requirement to increase free learning for three and four year olds and eligible two year olds to 1140 hours each year.  The project initially provides six new kindergarten facilities, with the potential to quickly increase the number of locations should the need arise. Construction social enterprise, Rebuild, are on board again, providing much needed paid work experience for those facing barriers to employment.
