Construction of the first business to be built in the Huntlee town centre on track to be complete by mid-August.
The Huntlee Early Learning Centre will be a state-of-the-art, 164-place childcare centre.
Operations manager Lauren Taylor said the privately-owned, family-run centre started taking expressions of interest at the beginning of the year.
“It’s exciting to be a part of the new town of Huntlee and there’s certainly already a high demand for what we have to offer,” Ms Taylor said.
“We have had a wonderful response from local residents, with inquiries continuing to be received daily.”
Huntlee project director Stephen Thompson said the early learning centre is an ideal fit for the town centre.
“Huntlee is a fully master-planned community with a focus on education, employment and recreation opportunities for its residents,” Mr Thompson said.
“A large number of young families are choosing to call Huntlee their new home town and, no doubt, they will appreciate having a facility of this calibre in such close proximity.
“We believe the Huntlee Early Learning Centre has an important role to play in the development of our community.
“It will be an important cornerstone facility for the Huntlee town centre and we very much look forward to it being open for business.”
A Coles supermarket, a tavern and a medical centre are also planned to be built in the town centre.
Huntlee is the Hunter region’s first new town in 50 years. When complete, it could comprise 7500 new homes and up to 20,000 residents.
