In 2002, the then managers of Sunshine Creche (Pauline Donoghue) and Happy Apple Nursery (Julia Common and Emma Wallis) were approached by Northumberland County Council to provide a complete childcare service for families in the Coquet community area where at the time there was a lot of deprivation and low income.

Having secured funding from a variety of sources they saw the then wasteland on the Industrial Estate transform into a new purpose building which opened its doors in June 2004.

Pauline and Kath (nursery cook), the last existing members of the original team believe our not-for-profit organisation has certainly evolved over the years but still stands proud and continues to support children and their families in the local community.

“We have met some amazing practitioners, professionals, families and of course children; everyone’s commitment to our shared vision has contributed significantly to our growth and accomplishments over the years. We pride ourselves on the difference we have made to children and their families and feel blessed, thanks to each and every one of you for being part of this incredible journey.”

The birthday celebration is on Saturday 8 June 12pm-2pm for families and staff past and present (plus prospective families) and other settings/professionals/businesses we have worked with over the years, feel free to pop along and help us celebrate.
