Sunshine Daycare believes that children learn best through play while being surrounded by a safe and nurturing environment. The children learn from the activities, environment, daily schedule, and from our conversations with them. The most important goal of our early childhood curriculum is to help children become enthusiastic learners while in small group sizes and low child/adult ratios to promote optimal development. The children learn how to gain and how to have confidence in themselves to succeed in life. We provide care to children ages six weeks to twelve years old without discrimination based on gender, religion, race, ethnic origin, nationality, or creed. We operate above the standards set by the state of Illinois for child care homes and constantly strive to achieve level of quality. The two adults in the program have degree's in Early Childhood Education and Robbie has her degree. It is important to know that your children are getting the proper steps in their education to succeed in the future.

screening tools are used up to kindergarten
We keep in contact through facebook with a closed group page with parents and grandparents. Each child has a portfolio that tracks the progress as the child grows. We use the Teaching Strategies Gold to align with the public school system to ensure the child is ready for kindergarten. This is also a great tool to share pictures and information geared to help your child learn and grow.
