Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Each child is unique and remarkable. The cornerstones of Sunflower's philosophy are to foster the individual development of each child and to promote strong self-esteem. By creating a school environment that encourages social interaction and developmental learning, we believe that children begin building their first positive school experiences. Our purpose is to make children happy.
A partnership between child and teacher is established to facilitate self-expression and self-direction. The relationship a child has with his/her first teachers is crucial to his/her future perceptions of school.
Sunflower Preschool Ltd. recognizes and respects the individuality of each child. The staff at Sunflower explores and encourages a child's individuality by creating an atmosphere of unconditional acceptance. In addition, Sunflower strives to teach respect and tolerance for others by providing experiences that embrace cultural diversity.
Our developmental programs celebrate the "whole child" and it is our hope that Sunflower contributes positively to each child's future of promise."
