About Us

Sunrise is a preschool and long day care centre for children aged 3 to 5 years, located in Fitzroy North – and soon, in Thornbury. Sunrise has been in operation in Fitzroy North since 1993 and our programme is based on the Neo-Humanistic Educational Philosophy.

Sunrise is an educational project of the Ananda Marga organisation. Ananda Marga – which means Path of Bliss – was founded in 1953 by PR Sarkar (1921–1990). Ananda Marga is a multifaceted organisation which has many different branches dedicated to the uplifting of humanity through education, relief work, welfare, the arts, ecology, intellectual renaissance, women’s emancipation and a humanistic economy.

Sunrise in Fitzroy North is managed by a Director, who is assisted by a Management Committee comprised of Ananda Marga volunteers and local supporters of the centre and its philosophy. The organisation Ananda Marga Pracaraka Samgha Ltd owns the premises.
