Events and Fundraisers

Sonshine Daycare is a Not-for-Profit centre which means we do rely on fundraising throughout the year to help us provide essentials for daily operation such as craft supplies, equipment and materials for the children to learn and grow.

We are always open to new and fresh ideas for fundraising and we always like to hear from families, community members and local businesses with what fundraising they would like to offer and see.  Please forward your fundraising ideas and propositions by email to: sonshinedaycare@live.ca
