Thornbury Kids philosophy is to develop an appetite for learning through providing each child with rich experiences that are targeted to the developing brain. This is done through the provision of a consistent, coherent individually tailored program that is fully integrated with the home experience.

Shine On assessed the childcare facility’s existing lighting and prepared a proposal for a VEET subsidised LED lighting upgrade that would not only reduce the energy and maintenance costs, but also improve the environmental performance of the building.

By changing the existing halogen downlights to 8W LED downlights, Shine On was able to improve the lighting quality at Thornbury Kids and save 85% on their lighting energy consumption and power costs. This considerable reduction was achieved with a payback period of only 9 months and a first year return on investment of 132%.



“It was great, everything ran smoothly with no interruptions.” Eric Howarth, Owner Thornbury Kids
