Tresillian 2 mins read

Marking an historic milestone in Tresillian’s 105-year history, His Excellency General the Honourable David Hurley AC DSC (Retd) and Her Excellency, Mrs Linda Hurley, will join Tresillian CEO Rob Mills and distinguished guests to officially launch Tresillian’s new $16.4m flagship early parenting support Centre at 25 Shirley Road Wollstonecraft tomorrow, Friday 1st December at 10.30am.

“I am delighted to welcome His Excellency General the Honourable David Hurley AC DSC (Retd) and Her Excellency, Mrs Linda Hurley, to unveil the new Tresillian facility that will enable many more parents across New South Wales to access specialist support and advice to help manage issues such as an unsettled baby, breastfeeding, nutrition, perinatal mental health, postnatal depression and anxiety,” said Tresillian CEO, Rob Mills

Tresillian’s new early parenting support Centre provides a thoughtfully designed, 14-bed, state-of-the-art residential facility operating 7 days a week where parents and their baby or toddler can live in for 4 nights/5 day periods along with expanded day services for families.

As part of the redevelopment, historic Carpenter House, originally donated to Tresillian in 1940 by Sir Walter and Lady Carpenter, has been restored to its former glory.

The redevelopment features:

• a state-of-the-art 14 bed residential in-patient facility operating 7 days a week

• beautifully appointed, tranquil rooms featuring ensuites and adjoining sleeping areas for mums and babies including disabled access rooms.

• common dining, recreation and child play areas overlooking Sydney harbour and city;

• expanded day services for parents, their baby or toddler;

• a rooftop education facility for parents, staff and health professionals;

• upgrades to the Guthrie Early Learning Centre;

• underground carparking for 12 vehicles including 12 electric vehicle charging stations

With a tick of approval from North Sydney Council and the NSW Government, Tresillian’s new facility has been  designed to meet the needs of todays’ families and is a game-changer for those in the community struggling  with the demands of parenting a baby or toddler. The re-development has been funded through a combination of an NSW Government funding grant of $500,000, donations, philanthropy, Tresillian fundraising activities and 
proceeds from the sale of Tresillian’s Willoughby site.

‘Tresillian’s Wollstonecraft development represents a significant investment in the health and wellbeing of future generations and delivers on Tresillian’s vision which is to ensure every child has the best possible start in life’, added Rob Mills.


Case studies will be available (parents who have used Tresillian’s early parenting services).

Why early life antibiotic use can increase risk of asthma: a potential prevention for asthma later in life?

Early exposure to antibiotics can trigger long term susceptibility to asthma, according to new research from Monash University. Importantly the research team isolated a molecule produced by gut bacteria that in the future could potentially be trialed as a simple treatment, in the form of a dietary supplement, for children at risk of asthma to prevent them developing the disease. Asthma affects over 260 million people globally and causes around 455,000 deaths annually. In Australia, 2.7 million people live with asthma and for 45% of these people, their asthma is poorly controlled. The research led by Professor Ben Marsland and…
