All Our Children Under One Roof



We have exciting news to share; Sunrise Banks has adopted La Crèche Early Childhood Center located in North Minneapolis. With the help of First Children’s Finance, we have become the first Business Champion in Childcare in Minnesota.


Who is La Crèche Early Childhood Center?

 Established in 1969, La Crèche’s mission is to guide children from a level of dependence to a level of independence by creating an environment that encourages children to become life learners.  La Crèche has been a long time anchor in the north Minneapolis community and is committed to helping children get from the classroom to the boardroom.  A partner with the Northside Achievement Zone, La Creche is a community asset that plays a vital role in reducing Minnesota’s achievement gap between minorities and Caucasian students, which is one of the worst in the nation.

What are we doing?

Now through March 15, 2014 we are helping La Crèche kick-off its capital campaign.  We are raising funds and awareness for quality childcare and early education.  The All Our Children Under One Roof campaign will help La Crèche consolidate its operations under one roof resulting in:


  •  More learning opportunities for the children;
  •  Greater synergy opportunities for educators; 
  •  A state-of-the-art learning facility; and
  •  Stronger cash flow.


Currently, La Crèche has two facilities.  The renovation will put All Our Children Under One Roof at its main location, at 1800 Olson Memorial Hwy and will serve more low-income children and families in North Minneapolis.


Sunrise Banks consistently strives to improve the lives of the underserved throughout our urban neighborhoods.  Help us ensure all our children are in a safe, quality childcare and are prepared for success at school and beyond. 

Your support is greatly appreciated!
