Councillor Jim Clocherty, convener of education and communities at Inverclyde Council, said, “The new building was constructed almost entirely during the pandemic which makes the achievements of CCG Scotland, the contractor, architects Holmes Miller, along with our own estate’s team, even more impressive.

“The new building and outdoor provision have significantly enhanced the quality of the centre and the opportunities for learning both indoors and outdoors.”

Kevin Doyle, operations director of hub West Scotland, added, “hub West Scotland were delighted to attend the official opening of the Larkfield Early Years Centre. This investment by Inverclyde Council has created another inspiring high-quality learning environment helping to shape children’s future development.”
