About Us

about us

In 1956 a committee of local mothers instigated the formation of a Preschool in Cessnock. In 1958 Cessnock Multipurpose Children’s Centre began operating out of a single room, expanding to a purpose built preschool catering for 36 children on 3 March 1963.

Since that time, with the generous provisions of grants and fundraising, we have gradually expanded our services to include Nursery and Long Day Care, Out of School Hours Care, Occasional Care and Vacation Care. To date we remain a non-profit, community based organisation providing care and education for over three (3) generations of families.
