Reception Cottage at 25 Naldera Street, Glandore, was opened by the Department of Community Welfare on 11 February 1973 in one of the buildings of the Glandore Boys' Home. When the Glandore Boys' Home closed down in February 1973, a number of the buildings were renovated and reopened as cottage and family homes. Reception Cottage accommodated twelve boys on a temporary basis.
In 1975 Reception Cottage and Slade Cottage were moved from Glandore to Somerton Park into buildings on the site of the former Seaforth Home. The Reception Cottage and Slade Cottage joined three other cottages at the former Seaforth Home site. These included Tintoo Cottage, Morada Cottage and Kandarik Cottage.
The buildings of the former Reception and Slade Cottages at Naldera Street, Glandore, both became part of a separate unit of McNally Training Centre called the Glandore Unit.
The Reception Cottage at Somerton Park closed on 18 March 1979 and was replaced by the Central Region Admission Unit.
