CHILD CARE FIVE DOCK
Welcome to Sunshine Early Learning Centre!
A little about us
Sunshine Early Learning Centre caters for kids between ages 6 weeks to 6 years. Our aim is to provide a home-like environment for kids outside of their home, where they can learn and play. We actively communicate with parents to ensure consistency in their daily routines.
At Sunshine ELC, we are committed to developing Educational Programs that tailors to each child’s interest and abilities. We aim to develop each child to their full potential, and we have Daily Stories which are published to parents online to track each child’s progress.

SELC is a boutique centre located in the heart of Five Dock. The staff are lovely and I’ve found that the kids are provided with a very homely environment. I like that it is a small centre as big centres are a bit too overwhelming for us. My son attends this centre since early this year, and he loves it.
Our son attends this daycare since he was 9 months old and he loves it. The educators are great, food is freshly cooked, and the owners often invest on new toys and books. The daycare is small which we really like.
My son first attended Caring4Kids/Sunshine Early learning centre in Great North Road when he was 8 months old.. He is now 4 and we have nothing but praise for the staff and the directors.. They provide wonderful support and care. The school program is tailored for each child and can’t speak highly enough of the extra curricular programs that they have like sports and yoga which my son looks forward to every term! Thanks once again ladies for all the love! We have now moved on to Preschool and my son still misses his wonderful educators Mary and Fariska.
My daughter has been attending SELC since she was 6 months old. At first, I was hesitant in starting a child so young out of my care but I had to return to work. However, Lexi has flourished in daycare and she definitely has done and experienced so much more than what I could provide as a parent at home. She has made many friends, learned all the alphabets/rhymes/crafts, and grew to become a confident, insightful and happy child. The educators have been very welcoming and communicative. My daughter loves everyone of them.
I first met the staff at Sunshine when my son was 2. My Son has been at Sunshine (formally caring for kids) for three years now. I cannot express enough love and gratitude to the staff at Sunshine for showing an incredible amount of support and guidance to my son, and displaying patience, understanding and kindness to him. I was able to return to work confident that my son was safe, nurtured and loved. My son looks forward to going to daycare and learns new things every day. I highly recommend Sunshine to any parent looking for an experienced daycare with staff that will take care of all you child’s needs as if they were their own. Thank you to Sunshine kids for giving my son a home away from home, and for your amazing work with the children.
My son has been attending since he was six months old, he has grown and learnt so much thanks to the wonderful staff. An outstanding centre full of love, positivity, education and care for all the children I couldn’t be happier.
Our son attends Sunshine Early Learning Centre on Great North Road. He started off being such a shy boy but has been well supported and cared for by the educators that he has grown into an independent, friendly and social little man. Knowing my son enjoys his daycare is so comforting to me as a parent. He waves goodbye and runs in the door practically! He has made so many friends and loves the daily activities like arts and crafts, free play, reading, singing and outside play. I can see how happy he is through the updates on the app from Carrie as well as information on his food/toileting/sleep etc. Mary and her team keep us parents well informed and are excellent at their jobs always supporting us and guiding us through each stage of our child’s development. We are so thankful that we chose this daycare.
Our daughter has been attending Sunshine Early Learning Five Dock for two years, where she started in Angel Babies and is now in Rising Stars. We were welcomed in the Sunshine Family with (literally) open arms – a secure, safe and warm haven for our little one to grow and thrive. Over the years our daughter has flourished – she's made friends and comes home with a smile every day. All the carers at Sunshine have big hearts and take a vested interest in the emotional well-being and development of the children. We also find Sunshine incredibly accommodating with diet and food restrictions – which gave us the reassurance that she was being well looked after. I'd highly recommend Sunshine for home-away-from-home childcare. We will be sad to say goodbye to our Sunshine family!
The wonderful carers at Sunshine Early Learning Centre Great North Road have always been a nurturing, fun-loving group that my children adore. The centre has a warm, family-friendly vibe to it – full of craft, colour and fun. They have always made my children feel special, nurturing their individualities and creating a diverse and loving atmosphere.
Thank you Mary, Fariska and the incredible Sunshine GNR educators for giving our son, Luca, such a positive environment to learn and grow. He’s truly thriving being in your care five days a week – your centre is a home away from home. We enjoy seeing the range of learning activities and experiences he participates in each day, particularly the photos and development updates. Luca is a bright, engaged and happy child, and has developed such confidence. Juan and I are extremely grateful to have found the best centre in our area!
