A new childcare centre with capacity for 120 children is being planned at Murray Bridge’s Newbridge housing estate.
Plans lodged with Plan SA show that the centre would be built on Maurice Road, in an area where horse floats used to park when Murray Bridge’s racecourse still operated there.
Trees would be planted along the boundary of the nearby golf course to reduce the risk of any balls flying towards the new centre.
Murray Bridge News has sought comment from Newbridge’s developers.
There are currently five long day care providers for pre-kindy-aged children in Murray Bridge: the Community Children’s Centre, World of Learning, Kin Kin, Community Kids and, for Aboriginal and vulnerable children, Minya Porlar.
Tinyeri also offers occasional care, and the early learning centre at Tyndale Christian School caters to children aged three and up.
The new centre would accompany the residential development of the former racecourse, which is in its early stages.
More than 40 residential allotments have sold at the Newbridge development so far, including the entire first stage, off Mulgundawah Road.
Members of the public are entitled to provide feedback on the proposed childcare centre.
