The Preschool commenced in 1974 and was located in the former hall of the Gunnedah Baptist Church, where 20 children attended each day. In 1975, an additional room (the Blue Room) was added to the former hall, allowing 40 children to attend each day. The Gunnedah Baptist Child Care Association Limited was formed in 1986 with an inaugural Board of Directors. 1998 the new extension (the Yellow Room) was completed, and the original classroom was converted to office space. This year (2017) we are again expanding and have started the construction of a new room which will be known as the Green Room.
The Gunnedah Baptist Community Preschool is managed by the Board of Directors of the Gunnedah Baptist Child Care Association Limited, which is a not-for-profit incorporated organisation.
