The sod has been turned on the long-awaited Happy Hearts childcare facility at the corner of Laxton Road and Ritchie Road, Pallara, which promises to bring new services to support the growing suburb of Pallara and surrounding areas.

Calamvale Ward councillor Angela Owen said the centre was a welcome addition to the growing local community.

“In the past 4 years alone, the suburb of Pallara has grown from 762 homes to 2,686 consisting predominantly of young families,” she said.

“Residents have been waiting with anticipation to have access to new family-focused facilities within the suburb, and I am pleased we have confirmation that construction will be started shortly at this site, with future retail opportunities to follow.”

“There has been significant indication of support from residents for these facilities, and I am pleased that a service provider, Happy Hearts, has been confirmed prior to construction starting.”

Happy Hearts co-owner and manager Nabeel Tayob said he looked forward to opening the Pallara centre along with his brother Yaasir and father Zunaid, who also co-own and manage the Happy Hearts centres in Richlands and in Park Ridge.

“The plans are all done, and we have some beautiful play spaces planned that are going to be world-class … extremely natural and very beautiful, which will suit the community perfectly,” he said.

Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner said the new Happy Hearts facility would service the booming region.

“Pallara is one of the fastest growing suburbs in Brisbane, and this new centre will make accessing local amenities even easier,” Cr Schrinner said.

“With Pallara home to many young families, having new childcare facilities close to home will bring peace of mind to parents, while the future retail opportunities will provide local jobs and bring more amenities to the community.”

Ausbuild joint managing director Michael Loney said residents had been very supportive of the new facility.

“Residents have welcomed the development with open arms, and we look forward to seeing the community continue to grow and prosper with the construction of the childcare facility,” he said.
