On Friday 8 th January 2021 John Bridgeman Chairman of Trustees of the Sunshine Centre gave a very interesting talk about the Sunshine Centre.
It was created to act as a hub for a range of family and childcare support services for the Community in Bretch Hill and surrounding areas.
Ofsted has awarded the Sunshine Centre outstanding nursery which provides childcare for children from 3months to 5 years, organise classes and courses for families in the Community, and host a range of baby and toddler groups.
It also works in partnership with other organisations such as NHS to provide weekly antenatal clinics and drop in sessions with health visitors
In January 2020 as a result of the expansion of services a new extension was opened.
The extra space has enabled the Sunshine Centre to offer additional activities and services in the Community.
There are English and maths classes for parents and children, English as a Second Language (ESOL)courses, and healthy eating classes.
The Sunshine Centre aims to support and help families in the Community by creating the foundation to reduce inequality and provide support that will prevent problems from escalating or reaching crisis point.
The Sunshine Centre was awarded The Unsung Hero in Oxfordshire Award by Victoria Prentice MP, Cherwell Business Award overall winner.
