Boom in ECEC places for NSW Central Coast with new services and expansion projects

Two new early childhood education and care (ECEC) services are on the way for the New South Wales suburb of Toukley, on the Central Coast, along with the expansion of another service at nearby Tuggerah, bringing more than 230 additional places to the region. 

 

Existing service provider Little Miracles has lodged a development application with Central Coast Council with a view to expanding its property at 6A Pioneer Avenue in the Tuggerah Business Park.

 

The plans outline a first floor expansion which will consist of a classroom, appropriate amenities and an elevated outdoor play space. The room would cater for children aged between three and four years, and would boost the capacity of the centre to 188. 

 

A new single storey service has been proposed for a vacant lot at 166 Warnervale Rd, on the corner of Minnesota Ave, Hamlyn Terrace which would have six classrooms and would provide education and care for 120 children from six weeks to five years of age, employing 19 educators. 

 

The third service is proposed for Toukley, on Evans Road opposite a local primary school. The applicant is seeking permission to demolish a home on the block to construct a 100 place service with basement car parking, operating on weekdays from 7am to 6pm.

 

All three applications are open for public exhibition and comment on Central Coast Council’s website.
