This project combines a Surestart creche, Surestart area office, community hall, caf?? and a private nursery. It was designed to maximise a tight budget. All stages of its procurement were fast tracked to enable an early start on site. It is to be used as a model of excellence for future Surestart units in the Sussex area.

Clerestorey windows along the central spine of the building allow natural ventilation throughout, and the building incorporates many design elements that are specifically for children, such as inlaid floor patterns, play kitchens, grab bars, child height mirrors, windows and coloured glass blocks.
