Sunrise Thornbury Update

Sunrise at 63 Woolton Avenue, Thornbury is opening in April 2016! We are in the final stages of the centre’s renovations and registration.

As a result, we are happy to announce that we are now taking enrolments for 2016 and 2017.

We are asking if you could help us let your family and friends know.

This year, the centre will provide only long day care service for three year olds. The kinder programme will commence in January 2017.

We are holding two open days at Thornbury, on Saturday 19th March, 10 am – 1 pm and Sunday 20th of March, 10 am – 12 pm. Please spread the word to your family and friends with little ones!
