The centre will be a jointly managed facility, with Relationships Australia NSW offering family support services and Illawarra Area Child Care delivering the early learning services.
Cullunghutti is the name of the local Aboriginal area, also known as Mount Coolangatta, it was chosen as the name of the facility because of the cultural and spiritual significance it has for Aboriginal people.
