OneFin Pty Ltd has experienced great success on their most recent childcare development in Arana Hills. The site leased to the national operator Kids Club, sold at a 4.91% yield at auction in July. The auction, hosted by Cushman & Wakefield, solidified the sentiment that childcare centres are still in high demand. The Arana Hills development was a high spec early learning centre located at the corner of Bringelly Street and Patricks Road. This suburb was chosen to cater for the region’s younger population and significant gap in the childcare market. With a large outdoor play area, age-specific rooms, and an easy access drop-off zone, Kids Club Arana Hills is a primary example of what the market is expecting out of childcare centres. The sale, and specifically the 4.91% yield of the project, is representative of the current childcare demand within Australia. Sales rates per childcare place have steadily grown, rising 68.9% from $33,598 per place in 2015 to $56,750 per place, powered by growing interest from institutional investors. With government incentivisation designed to keep parents in the workforce, the childcare industry has remained stable over the course the last 24 months with this trend likely to continue for the foreseeable future.
