Hi, parents! Welcome to Sunshine Daycare in Rockville, MD. I’m the owner and lead teacher of this beautiful child care and early education facility. I have 36 years of professional experience and I hold a Master’s Degree in Education. Our staff always attends relevant training through state classes, orientation videos, and other certified professionals in the education field. We’re also CPR and First-aid certified.
We are dedicated to providing a clean and safe learning environment for young children and their families. Teachers help each student to develop their physical, socio-emotional, and intellectual growth. Our daycare welcomes parents’ positive involvement and presence at all times to support their little one’s child care and early education needs. At our daycare, children can thrive and have the opportunity to blossom into responsible and contributing members of our society.
At Sunshine Daycare, we offer a perfect balance between the intellectual and physical development, fundamental classes and active recreation. This is to ensure that our young students receive the most careful treatment, a cheerful company of peers and teachers, and the most essential knowledge and skills along with the ability to use them. We also teach our students through a variety of learnings and communications styles, with a safe and structured environment.
Along with our philosophy, our educational activities vary and tailored to each student’s needs and developmental stage. We realize that a curriculum framework that is designed to be universal to all children only leads to optimal development when teachers respect and respond to the learning opportunities of each individual child. Each child has their own individual and unique traits, so it is important to have structured programs to fit each child’s specific needs.
Learning should be fun, which is why we also incorporate the Play-based learning approach in our curriculum. We offer fun and engaging activities such as music, outdoor, play, etc., and lots of laughter :)
Sunshine Daycare is open year-round from 7:30 AM to 6:00 PM, Monday through Friday. Our program is tailored based on the child’s developmental milestones:
This is the crucial and important stage of a child’s life, so our caregivers provide the highest quality care in a loving environment. There are stimulating activities through music, exercise, and lots of hugs and tickles.
Toddlers & Preschoolers:
At this stage, children develop the necessary movement as part of their physical growth like crawling, walking, and eventually running. We know that they learn best if they are in a stimulating atmosphere. Caregivers encourage them to participate in fun, yet educational activities such as music, storytelling, outdoor play, and much more. Daily report on meal times, nap times, toilet training and all activities is given to parents.
We also offer before and after school care program for school-age children, up to 12 years old. We know that as they get older and more independent, they need new challenges to enhance their valuable skills. We teach them math, reading, and science subjects and help create a lifelong love of learning and exploration.
For school-age children, we offer a home-schooling program, as well as tutoring to help your child succeed academically. If your elementary school is closed (or operates virtually) due to COVID-19 restrictions, our intimate home-school program is a great alternative to allow your child to continue their education.
We can't wait for your family to be part of the Sunshine Daycare family :) Please contact us to schedule a visit.
