Transforming Tresillian Wollstonecraft

The Project

The redevelopment of Tresillian’s Wollstonecraft Family Care Centre will mark a new era in the delivery of quality care, education, advice and support for parents, their babies, toddlers and families.

Tresillian has appointed builder HPAC to undertake renovations to Historic Carpenter House and construction of a new building at the rear. The new building will accommodate a 14-bed in-patient facility operating 7 days a week and a state-of-the-art conference education facility for parents and health professionals. The building design complements the local streetscape and architecture of Carpenter House. Guthrie Childcare Centre will also benefit from upgrades.

The project will cost an estimated $16.4m and once complete, will enable thousands of parents, babies and families throughout Sydney and New South Wales to access Tresillian’s valuable early parenting support services including issues such as an unsettled baby, breastfeeding and postnatal depression and anxiety.

The redevelopment has North Sydney Council and NSW Government approval and is expected to be completed by early 2023. Builder, HPAC, is experienced in delivering major projects of this size and scale and will work closely with Tresillian and Project Managers, Mostyn Copper to ensure the construction works are delivered with minimal disruption.

 “The redevelopment of Tresillian’s Wollstonecraft site will provide more parents with more services and more support and delivers on Tresillian’s vision which is to ensure every child has the best possible start in life,” CEO Rob Mills.

FAQ's

  • Why is Tresillian undertaking re-developing its Wollstonecraft Centre?

    The re-development is about ensuring that Tresillian continues to respond to a changing needs of families with a baby or young child. The new facility will include both day and residential services for parents and babies, more versatile indoor and outdoor places for parents to gather, beautiful landscapes and enhanced accessibility. The facility will accommodate families from all over New South Wales experiencing complex parenting challenges.

  • When is the project likely to begin?

    Phase one of the re-development has commenced and regular updates can be found on this website.

  • Community Consultation

    The community consultation planning process was conducted over several years. The innovative design was the subject of extensive consultation between Tresillian’s nursing and allied health staff, families, local residents, health professionals and management. As a result of this consultation, there were several amendments made to the original design which will include accessible walkways connecting Guthrie Early Learning Centre to Tresillian’s residential and day services facilities. A priority of the project has been to retain the natural beauty of the area preserving the natural landscape that sits behind the site for families to enjoy well into the future.
