Somerset Cottage Early Childhood Education and Care centre provides child care for children aged 0 - 5 to NBMLHD staff and their families on the Nepean Hospital campus.
Somerset Cottage is within the construction zone of the new clinical tower as part of Nepean Redevelopment Stage 1 and is being relocated to a purpose-built facility on the northern edge of the campus.
In early December 2018, following a planning and consultation phase with Somerset Cottage staff and parent representatives, a development application (DA) was submitted to the Penrith City Council.
Work on the childcare centre is scheduled to start in 2019 once the DA is approved and is expected to be complete in early 2020.
Somerset Cottage will not close during construction or the relocation of the service.
Every effort will be made to minmise disruptions during construction of the Stage 1 tower which is starting in early 2019.
We appreciate your patience and support as we progress this important project.
