What will my child learn?
The aim of the Sunny Days Preschool is to supplement the home in providing experiences that promote intellectual, social, religious, emotional, and physical development of your child.
It is the combination of playmates, creative experiences, a Christian atmosphere, and a friendly, competent teacher, which makes preschool a valuable experience. Our hope and prayer is that a child will come to know Jesus through association with caring Christian adults.
Is the program licensed?
Sunny Days Preschool is governed by an advisory board and licensed by the Department of Human Services of Minnesota. As a licensed program, Sunny Days is regularly inspected and approved by the Department.
How long is the school term?
The Sunny Days term will be from September through May. The flexible daily program will be carefully planned and supervised to meet the needs of each child.
