Creating a community spirit in the new ‘Evolve’ building in Brookvale

The Evolve building consists of apartments, shops, offices and a child care centre in the midst of it all on Roger Street in Brookvale.

Kathy from Alpha Kids Academy and Helene from Choc n Moi are working together to create a great environment for families, workers and visitors in the community.

H?l?ne is a Belgian chocolatier and has opened a chocolate and coffee shop. This beautiful, friendly and cozy space is ideal for all the working community during the week and also for the neighbours on the weekends as they are open 7 days a week. You will find authentic Belgian chocolate made in store, in an open kitchen, with fresh coffee, croissants and more.

This space is also dedicated to chocolate classes, a unique opportunity for kids and adults to learn everything about chocolate and they will make their own creation!

It?s also a perfect way to teach everyone where the chocolate comes from and how to recognize a real handmade chocolate from a commercial one made with vegetable oil and a lot of preservatives.

Alpha Kids Academy has created a purposed built child care centre with indoor and outdoor areas which are inviting places to play, learn and grow! At Alpha Kids Academy they provide long day care services for 0-6 year olds. Looks can be deceiving!!! Their outdoor area that cannot be seen from the street scape is a state of the art custom built kid?s haven incorporating both a built and natural environment.

Alpha Kids Academy have been working closely with Choc & Moi in growing both their businesses.

Both businesses think working with the community is an integral part of the centre and philosophy. The philosophy ?of the centre underpins everything they do as early childhood educators in relation to the children, the education program, the families, the staff and the community.

?We provide a service that has a strong commitment to sustainable development incorporating many practices in our environment.” Kathy, Director at Alpha Kids Academy

They take the children to Choc n Moi every fortnight to collect the used coffee grounds from Helene that are then to be used at the Alpha Kids Academy’s?gardens harvesting fresh herbs, fruits and vegetables.

It is so hard to create a community spirit in an industrial area but, with these simple motions, and with the will of the local businesses, the future can change.

Every little change can save our earth and the future of our little ones.
