Infants (birth to 12-15 months)
- Infants needs are important, and caregivers respond quickly to coos and cries
- Infants learn to trust their caregiver and develop security
- Caregivers talk to babies using simple words and phrases throughout the day
Toddlers (12-15 to 30 months)
Toddlers are at the age of exploration so we create an environment that your child can safely explore and manipulate objects. They are learning about the world, including things and actions.
Caregivers respond to developing language by extending your child’s one-or-two-word sentences.
Younger Preschoolers (2 1/2 to 3 1/2)
Independence is encouraged to help the child learn to dress themselves, fix a simple snack, or choose between options (“Would you like apple juice or milk”). Communication is increased as daily activities proceed throughout the day.
Older Preschoolers (3 1/2 to 5 years)
Children in this age group are given opportunities to sort and classify. They love to pair things together such as socks, colors, numbers, objects, etc. They are given a variety of writing materials and they may be used to extend pretend play activities.
Kindergartners and School-Age (6-12 years old)
We provide transportation to schools depending on enrollment each year. We encourage parents to survey the territory and visit the school with your child before the official start of school. We also encourage parents to start a daily routine a few weeks before school begins and involve your child in the process of packing his lunch or choosing his clothes.
After School Programs
We are in the process of gathering input from parents. If there is a program that you would like to see implemented at the center, please let us know.
Sunny Daycare participates in Alliance for Children, a federally approved program. We also have a kitchen in our facility to prepare delicious and nutritious meals for children.
Children with special needs are welcome. We are very open to parent knowledge and implementing information from parents to accommodate children. We like to help other children understand and learn how to help out as well.
