Brookes Street Early Education was originally conceived from the need to provide full time, quality child care facilities for the children of employees at BSPN Architecture.

With over 30 years’ experience in design for the education sector, BSPN have used their expertise to craft an early learning environment that engages children and promotes exploration, social interaction, as well as learning and development.

In addition to our own experience, we have drawn upon our collaboration with sector leaders within early learning, primary, secondary and tertiary institutions from around the country including some of Queensland’s finest Schools. The design of our Service has been further informed by the building’s history as the original Fortitude Valley School (1867).

We have approached our own early childhood education facility from a very different perspective to that of the traditional provider. The collaboration of education designers and educators has provided a unique opportunity for insight into the use and operation of the learning environment. What started for us as an idea to have an office creche developed over time to become a fully functional Long Day Care Service for the use of working parents.

At BSEE we are committed to offering a responsive environment which enhances all aspects of each Child’s development. We believe Children, families and Staff are an integral part of our community. We welcome, respect and value the uniqueness and individuality of each Child and their family.
