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.
The new Somerset Cottage Early Childhood Education and Care Centre was officially opened on Tuesday 7 July 2020.
Childcare staff and children moved in to the new centre on Monday 29 June 2020 following an operational commissioning and accreditation process.
The new purpose-built centre is located on the northern edge of the campus and has capacity for 68 children. The centre was built in consultation with Somerset Cottage childcare staff and parents to create a fun, safe and welcoming environment for everyone.
The new centre features generous amounts of natural light and a colourful fresh outdoor playground.
The old childcare centre was within the redevelopment zone of Stage 1 and was demolished to facilitate construction of the 14-storey clinical services tower.
