Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Sunrise Christian Daycare is a community service of Sunrise United Methodist Church with open enrollment to children of all faiths. We use the word "Christian" in our title as Bible stories and songs are an important part of our curriculum, as well as prayer before meals and snacks. We also observe holidays from a Christian point of view.
Sunrise Christian Daycare provides:
An environment filled with love, security, acceptance, guidance, and sensitivity to the child's intellectual, emotional, physical, and social needs.
A program which challenges and nurtures children equally with respect to gender, race and religion.
We believe that young children learn best through an individualized curriculum including a combination of free choice activities and structures small and large group times. Our qualified staff and environment are vital components of our program through with we seek to:
Enhance learning skills by exploring and investigating.
Expand verbal skills by using words to explain feelings and ideas.
Demonstrate cooperative social behavior by helping, respecting, and interacting positively with each other.
Enhance physical development by encouraging movement and manipulation of objects in the classroom and on the playground.
Enhance imagination through art projects, sensory activities and dramatic play."
