Our Centre

Meet our Centre & Director

Welcome to LEAD Sunrise, My name is Allison Baynham and I am the Centre Manager at this wonderful centre. I am a very passionate early childhood educator who believes that the early years are the first and most important years for learning and development.  I enjoy working alongside children and their families and I believe in an open door policy for our centre.

LEAD Sunrise is one of LEAD Childcare’s original purpose built services and is located in the Northern Beaches of Mackay.

We strive for excellence in the care that we provide to our children. We foster strong relationships between ourselves and our families and encourage them to become involved in all aspects of our service. We believe relationships are built on mutual trust, respect and professionalism.

We cater for children aged between six weeks and 12 years. We offer a Government Approved Queensland Kindergarten Program delivered by a qualified Early Childhood Teacher. We also provide Before and After School Care and Vacation Care.

We recognise the cultural diversity and various needs of our families and encourage our children to learn about and appreciate each other for who we are as individuals and as part of the wider community.

We have large indoor and outdoor natural play spaces. We extend upon children’s learning through identifying their current interests. Our practice is guided and our curriculums are developed by following the National Quality Standards, Early Years Learning Framework, Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guideline and My Time Our Place.

Our educators are friendly, caring and experienced in providing quality early childhood education and care to your children and in supporting your family’s needs.

Please contact our service to arrange an appointment to ensure we have the time to showcase the wonderful learning we have to offer here at LEAD Sunrise. We look forward to meeting you and your family!

Thank you

Allison and the Sunrise team


"From the very first introduction, you have made the huge decision to place our pride and joy in the care of another woman, so much easier. My husband and I are very grateful that you and the other educators take the time to greet us everyday with a smile. We are pleased to see her come home full of giggles and smiles, to see that she has been involved in creating arts and crafts. The staff are so very pleasant and genuinely have our daughters best interests at heart. We would and have highly recommended the centre to other families."
