We have Moved!

The wait is over! After a long and bumpy ride, we are proud to announce that Best Buddies Educare is back at our brand new premises!

I decided to take you all on a tour from beginning to end. Let’s have a look at how the old school was renovated, transformed and rebuilt from it’s former shell to the magical wonderland it has become today!

The Main Building

Before we upgraded our school was only a single storey structure. We decided to build up and on to create a large, safe space for all our Buddies!

The Cub Class

The Cub Class has been completely renewed with freshly painted walls, new floors and an additional area for cots to keep baby calm, cool and relaxed. The Cub Class has adopted orange as it’s official colours.

The Penguin Class

The Penguin Class was the old Lions and  Bunnies Classes. Our Pengis will now have ample space to run around, climb and jump! Their new Class colour is blue to remind them of the ocean.

The Bunnies Class

Our Best Buddies Bunny Class has been built from scratch. No more sharing classes! Now our Bunnies can hop along as much, as far and as many times as they want!

The Lion Class

The Lion Class is on the second storey with a beautiful view. Their class colour is yellow and it is so big that you can fit a whole pride of roaring little ones in it!

The Owl Class

The Owl Class is located next to the offices. The owls’ colour is green and we are sure that they will feel right at home in their new nest.

The Lamb Class

The Lamb Class is our newest addition to Best Buddies. The Lambs have the colour purple, a special colour for our new woolen Baahh-dies!

The Kitchen, Offices and Bathrooms

We have added more bathrooms, renovated our kitchen completely and built on new offices! We are so proud of Tasja’s creation. A dream which is now a reality!

Thank you for standing by us and all the support we received. We are happy to welcome everyone to our magical new “home away from home!”
