Children, the Arts and Huckleberry

The Arts Building board is very excited about an emerging new partnership with Huckleberry Coast Daycare.

Huckleberry has already taken over the Little Hands program we offer on Monday mornings and will soon be offering their more comprehensive plan to support Sunshine Coast families in day-to-day life by expanding the number of available childcare spaces.

Since the Arts Building is empty most weekdays except for Little Hands and the Children’s Coop, we believe this is a wonderful opportunity for parents and children in our community.

We look forward to forming a unique partnership that will provide quality daycare with a focus on the arts in order to further nurture creativity and imagination in our young children.
