Perth's new $2.6 million early learning centre is on track for its 2022 open, after the council approved the development.
The concept plans were released in January, before a development application was lodged for the proposed centre located next to the Perth Primary School kindergarten on Fore Street in March.
It will be run by the Northern Midlands Council and development is set to be completed by early 2022.
The council approved the development, subject to five conditions around the layout, operation hours, lighting and construction management.

One representation was received from a neighbouring property, it raised concerns about the noise and vibrations during the construction. A condition was placed on the DA to address it and outline how it would be managed.
It will cater for up to 46 children, 12 between the ages of birth and 18 months, 14 from 18 months to three-years-old and 20 in the three to five year age bracket during the day. With the capacity to cater for 40 after-school care places also.
This is in comparison to the existing centre at the Perth Community Centre, which can only cater for up to 20 children.
A traffic impact assessment found it will generate 69 additional trips in the area in the morning and 60 during the afternoon, which would not adversely impact the operation of nearby streets.
The vacant land was identified and purchased by the council in late 2018 for the centre.
