Havilah Little Children's Home was established in a house called Havilah in Hinemoa Road, Normanhurst in 1918 by the Church of England Diocese of Sydney.(This was also known as Havilah Wahroonga). It was a home for infant children aged under six years. Havilah Little Children's Home was established by the Homes and Hostels Committee for Children, which in 1930 merged with the Church of England Homes. In 1950, Havilah moved to 'Seven Oaks' at Carlingford next to the Church of England Boys' Home on Pennant Hills Road. The Seven Oaks property was renamed Havilah. This house became a group home in the 1970s. It closed around 1980 and the property was sold.
