Our mission at My Little Sunshine Academy is to provide high quality child care, incorporating the best research and knowledge of child development and health. The center’s goals are for the children served by the center to develop normally, to exhibit healthy social, emotional and physical growth; for the families to feel confident that their children are being cared for in the best possible manner, to promote the natural scholastically for Kindergarten, to find the center personnel open and easy to communicate with, and to be satisfied with the cost and quality of care their children receive.
We believe that every child can accomplish any task that any other human has ever accomplished. Every child is a blank slate, and we aspire to fill that slate with the knowledge and social skills that will help them to achieve their goals in life. As we know all children develop at their own pace and we help them achieve their goal at their own pace. We as educators know each child home language is different, which is why we speak to our children and families in the language which best suits them. Our children will learn social, emotional and cognitive skills through play and group activities. They will have many choices during the day to do activities that best fit their needs and interests on an individual basis. Our caregivers use the shadowing approach to guidance by trying to guide the child’s choices rather than force choices upon the child. Our preschool rooms are divided into centers such as library, dramatic play, art center, block center, and circle time. The different areas within the classrooms promote a variety of interests for children to choose from throughout the day. The centers promote social and emotional development, cognitive learning skills, and gross and fine motor skills
