"John Paul College’s Kindergarten" by Deicke Richards Architects with Aspect Studios in collaboration with John Paul College Kindergarten won the top honours from a field of 122 entries across Australia, New Zealand and Singapore, in the A4LE 2020 awards.

“John Paul College Kindergarten” won the Category 6: Small Projects Under AU$2 million. The judges noted it as “Designed to provoke wonder and curiosity, this child-centred environment is indeed the third teacher in a local context”.

Please join us to hear from Deicke Richards and John Paul College Kindergarten on how they articulated the college’s Reggio Emilia approach to teaching and learning within an Australian context.

John Paul College's Kindy’s new environments were intentionally designed to be like a “third teacher” (after the teachers and students) supporting the children’s imaginative capacities to express themselves in many ways.
