About Little Sunflowers

The  goals of my program are to provide your child with an environment in  which they can feel comfortable and safe.  A warm, homey atmosphere in  which they will be able to grow, explore, learn and develop at their own level. All children leave the program prepared for Kindergarten.  A  great alternative to center-based pre school care, this small group, low  ratio setting offers the best of learning environments.
 
In a home daycare children have the opportunity to learn from children both older and younger.  Being a part of a close knit mixed-age group  fosters helpfulness and compassion, reinforces responsibility for self  and others, and allows children to experience sibling roles outside of  their own family structure.  Both the oldest and youngest children in  care learn from each other and all benefit.  Studies show continuity of  care is very important in young children's lives. Your child can be with the same educator for many years. Allowing them to receive individualized attention from someone who knows them well and loves them.  This helps  them to build trust, grow lasting relationships and develop a sense of  belonging they will carry with them for life. Studies have proven that a  child's early experiences can impact brain growth and development.   There is a direct link between strong attachments in early childhood  (birth - age five) and a child's ability to cope with the social,  emotional and intellectual demands they will face in adulthood.  They  will carry their early childhood experience with them for life.
