Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith joined Kay Hyman, NBMLHD Chief Executive and Peter Collins, Chairperson NBMLHD on Monday to officially open the new Somerset Cottage Early Childhood Education and Care Centre at Nepean Hospital.

This official opening follows a recent smoking ceremony that was undertaken by Darug Elder, Chris Tobin to cleanse the unit when construction was finalised.

Stuart Ayres said this new childcare centre was a commitment made as part of the NSW Government’s $1B Nepean Redevelopment of the hospital and I am proud to see it delivered.

“This new purpose-built centre has the capacity for 68 children and was built with input from staff and parents to create a fun, safe and welcoming environment for everyone.”

“It’s fantastic to see that childcare staff and children have moved in and are enjoying their new centre.”

The new centre completed in less than 12 months features generous amounts of natural light and a colourful fresh outdoor playground.

The relocation process was carefully planned to ensure a smooth transition into the new facility and the service was able to remain open for staff and their families throughout the transition period.

Coming weeks will see the old childcare centre demolished to facilitate construction of the 14 storey tower.

“The NSW Government is getting on with the job of delivering the major expansion and upgrade of the hospital and community-based services to provide Western Sydney residents with state-of-the-art health care services,” added Stuart Ayres,
