Case Study: Country Buddies Childcare Centre
Country Buddies operators Matthew and Robin Kibble were very keen to create a childcare centre that was child orientated, where the children could learn from the surrounding and experiences. At the same time, the environment had to be practical, hardwearing and safe.

Professional Colour Consultant and Interior Designer Lynne Mewett of Creative Ambience was asked to specify interior and exterior colour, finishes and fittings. She specified Polyflor flooring throughout the centre and designed all the shapes set into the floors, including the waterjet design featuring a stork carrying a child in reception. The flooring was installed by Bigger Floorworld.
Lynne chose Classic Mystique and Pearlazzo homogeneous flooring in a range of colours for the play rooms, corridors and reception area, as these are low maintenance floorcoverings available in an assortment of suitable shades. Polysafe Astral and Polysafe Verona were used for areas where sustainable wet slip resistance was required, such as the kitchens, the laundry and children’s toilets. Lynne described the technical assistance she received from Polyflor Australia representatives regarding product selection as “invaluable”.
Matthew Kibble of Country Buddies Childcare Centre commented, “We’ve had a lot of comments about our logo in the floors at the front reception, and the shapes in the floors in the children’s rooms. At the same time, staff say the floors are easy to clean, dry quickly and are very serviceable.”
