The first preschool service for Tottenham was started in 1974 in the Presbyterian Church Hall, and operated in that premises until the current site was opened.
Tottenham War Memorial Early Childhood Centre was established in 2001 in a new building on land provided by the Lachlan Shire Council and the RSL Tottenham Sub-Branch, after massive fundraising and working bee efforts from the entire community. The Centre expanded to include Long Day Care as well as the current Preschool days, and now has enrolments of around 30 children.
The Centre celebrated its 10 year anniversary of the new building in 2011, and looks forward to many more years to come.
